  1. Here’s an original decal to see the original orange peel can almost see the bumps of the orange peel.
  2. Most years having grain bins pay off, in my area it paid to put the beans in the bin for a few weeks, made a dollar a bushel over anything offered pre harvest. Corn, was better to move in early October, but not many have corn ready then, still getting beans off too. Now that harvest is about done, basis levels are strengthening, that tells me there’s demand for corn somewhere. If I see $4.95-$5, I’ll be sending corn. If I don’t, well then I’ll figure it out this coming spring and summer.
  3. I’ll look around, I might have an original NOS decal somewhere, I’ll look at that and compare.
  4. The orange peel has gray squiggly lines, but look better than aftermarket
  5. @stronger800 These were put on 2 years ago
  6. So sorry to hear this!! After putting down our German shepherd husky Willow, about this time last year, I feel your pain!! It’s amazing how many tears we shed over an animal! I still miss Willow, but our new dog Jovie has definitely filled that void of Willow!
  7. Good to know, and good thing it’s not used for much anymore!!
  8. Does the Sentry light come on when this happens? Engine rpm when this happens? Our 5488 sometimes does this, and it’s cause the rpm’s are to low, bump the rpm a little and it’s fine.
  9. I’ve bought a few sets from CHN in the last 2 years, they are cheaper than you think, price is comparable to anything you’d get aftermarket, but the orange peel look is slightly different than original. I’ll try post close ups of the decals I put on, or open a package of a new one I have on the shelf. I’m happy with how they look, nothing I’ve seen yet come from any vinyl shop, or decal maker looks close to originals!
  10. Thanks for the heads up! I better do that Friday!!
  11. All depends on if he can get the capillary bulbs anymore. I have 2 down at his shop now, and they’ve been there for about two months, and he said he is waiting on the capillary bulbs, with no luck!
  12. My dad kinda started, how many, or how far he went, I don’t know? One of red power site updates logged him off and he can’t remember his login information, I’ll see what I can do!
  13. You need to reach out to Mike Links, Triple R Tractor, or @88seriesrestorer here on the forum. He’ll be able to answer any questions you have!
  14. We have had a Mini Gac for probably 10 years or more now, been within a 1/10 of a point as the elevators, but now this year it’s about 1/2 point off, not sure why? The one thing with the mini gac, I never trust the first test, I always figure the first test is its wake up test. I agree with the bite method too! We do that a lot, if the pod cracks open nice, but the bean doesn’t “pop” or crack, they aren’t ready, and sometimes a 13% bean won’t crack, but will definitely be harder than a 15-16% bean!
  15. Wow!!! I think the transformation from when you picked it up, to now it looks amazing!!! Great looking patina on that ole girl!!!
  16. I’ve hooked them up without determining which is which over the years with no issues!
  17. That’s not very helpful when it’s crunch time and you need support!! Some people work more than 40 a week!!
  18. Trying to get finished with harvest, and we got a hole in a hydraulic line for remote valve 3, so instead of tearing the rear apart when we don’t have time, I thought we could just put a Fasse valve on remote 1, and still have 3 valves. It’s not working so well, when we try to run the functions it blows oil out through the drain port plastic fitting, and pops remote 2 hoses out. Is this because it’s not handling the gpm flow, or is there something wrong in the valve? Might have been further ahead fixing the line that has the hole in it?! As far as I can tell, everything is hooked up correctly, and it plugs into the remote valve easy.
  19. Mmm! Bacon!🤤🤤
  20. I wish I had more time to do things like this!! Hauling grain and trying to get 1600 acres of our own in the bins before snow and cold hit’s seems to be time consuming!
  21. The trucker was on his way to the Deere plant, and was going to run empty, we were kinda in a round about way on his way to Iowa, so I think that helped too!
  22. We just had an 8010 hauled roughly 245 miles, $1200 if I remember correctly. Valley City ND to ECMN
  23. Jovie has to be wherever I am, I’m the 7250 yesterday, and this morning in the combine. She was letting me know that the hopper was about empty in the combine.
  24. A big problem with drivers, or equipment for that matter, no one understands 2 lights flashing for flashers, then all of a sudden 1 is flashing and 1 is stuck on, they can’t grasp the concept. And some implements the flashers are up to high for the average dip $hit driver to pay attention to.
