    What part do you have a hard time with, we have two 510s and can usually have them on in under 5 minutes.

    Best cordless saw I've ever used

    The Milwaukee M18 chainsaw is supposed to be available sometime this month and the reviews over heard from the people who got to try it at the New Product Symposium this spring said it was very impressive.

    Monsanto roundup vs generic cornerstone5

    We've been using generic glysophate since '03 and have never seen a difference compared to Monsanto products. We did pay for half of our first sprayer the first year we used generic with the cost savings.

    Best cultivator for organic crops in Iowa

    The sweeps are $36/row from Shoup. I can load it on a trailer with a loader, I think it weights around 2,500lbs.

    Best cultivator for organic crops in Iowa

    Most of the guys around here run a single sweep cultivator like a Hiniker ams follow it 2-3 days later with a multiple sweep one like the IH. The single sweep will take out all the weeds and the second cultivator breaks up the clods after they've dried out and knocks the dirt off the weeds roots so they don't regrow. That Hiniker your talking about is most likely mine, it's a solid machine but we bought an 8 row and don't need both.

    4260 sprayer lost road speed

    After I gots warmed up with the speed control knob all the way up push the hydro lever all the way forward from a stop and if the ladder drops some then your hydro charge pumps are weak.

    Our Kubota does just fine on hills.

    ex mark mowers?

    Which grade of Kubotas, they have at least 3 grades, a heavy residential, commercial and the ZD's are what I would consider industrial grade. We have a 2,200 hour ZD326, in the last 500 hours I've put new deals in the deck gearbox and wheel bearings in one front wheel.

    4X00 field cultivator differences

    We went from a 28' 4800 to a 42' TMII this year. I think the 4800 handled heavy residue better but the stronger shanks on the TMII are much more effective at taking out big weeds. The other big advantage to the TMII is they are more likely to have a good narrow, the 3 bar coil time narrow on most of the 4800s wasnt very good.

    Upgrading Trucks

    If you buy a 6.0 make sure it's a new enough truck to have the 6 speed automatic behind it, a 6 0 with the 4 speed automatic socks for towing.

    CaseIH's management

    We bought a combine from the Titan dealer at Oskaloosa Iowa before they merged with the Pella store and they were great to work with, the next year we bought a planter from the Titan store at Center Point and were equally happy.

    Need new kid hauler

    We bought an '11 Toyota Sienna 6 months ago and for hauling small kids around it beats an SUV and is cheaper to drive too. Power sliding doors are so much better than hinged doors for kids as is the lower step in height. Instead of AWD I bought two rims from a salvage yard and put a set of Nokian studded snow tires on them, unless you have to get through 12"+ of snow it gets around better in the winter than an AWD SUV.

    MX Maxxum Fuel Injectors

    Big injectors in a truck that runs at a low duty cycle is a lot different than a tractor where you lug it all day.

    2001 mx180 jumping out of gear

    The shop said they fixed 60 of those controllers in the last year so you would think CNH would try to get a couple in their parts system. Luckily our dealer had a used 315 on the lot they are renting us at a good price but it still cost us 2 days of downtime.

    2001 mx180 jumping out of gear

    Hopefully you don't have a bad transmission controller, the one in our 240 acted up a couple days ago and you can't get them from CNH anymore, there is a place in Wisconsin that fixes them but it's not a quick process.

    miller wire welder 210?

    If you get a wire machine I strongly suggest you go to YouTube and watch some of videos, the guy has been a welding teacher and also runs a welding shop and gives a lot of very practical and useful advice.

    Cub Cadet 982

    The 3pt and rear PTO are worth $400 each, the rear tiller should be worth at least that much and the snow thrower $200-300. If you plan on using it much I strongly suggest getting a set of the rear end braces from Xtreme motorworks, they will keep the aluminum rear end from cracking if it isn't already from using the tiller.

    Eastern Iowa IH Dealerships

    The store at Oskaloosa was a Titan store in recent years and was closed about 3 years ago and merged with the store at Pella.

    Return of Roseanne tonight

    I never cared for it but Tom Arnold grew up about 10 miles from here and we farm some ground across the road from where him and Roseanne started to build their mansion before their divorce. If you ever get a chance to see Tom do stand up comedy he is one of the funniest person I've seen, at the one show here I was sitting about 8 seats down from his dad and he told stories that most crowds don' get to hear

    Advice Wanted-496 Disk Arbor Bolt-Castle Nut

    If you take it to the field and use it for 30 minutes I bet the nut will tighten down enough to put a cotter key in.

    Foam filling tires

    Our tire dealer said Michelin will guarantee the carcass of the Bibsteels to be good for retreading so sidewall strength won' be an issue.

    Foam filling tires

    I know of a couple guys on concrete all the time who have got 2,400-2,600 hours out of the Michelins and they were getting 500-600 hours out of Titans.

    Foam filling tires

    Get a set of Michelin Bibsteel radial skid steer tires and your flat tires will all but stop, we'e had 1 flat in 900 hours and it looks like the tires will last another 4,000-5,000 hours.

    Firestone super NO tractions

    We tried a set of the Destination MTs and they wore out quick, replaced them with Hankook MTs and they lasted quite a bit longer. I' running a set of Nokian Rockproof tires on my truck now and I thunk they will last twice the miles that the Destinations did.
