  1. Probably short on supplies since Remington ammo factory was down for a while. I’d see them as the ones to make most of those rounds anyway. Time to start reloading them. If you can find enough supplies to reload Matt
  2. Deere’s been moving a lot of tractors recently here in eastern Pa. I’ve seen 4-5 Mondor(Canadian outfit) with 3 or so tractors each in the last few days. Probably more I haven’t seen too. Matt
  3. I read they are doing that again for the full 2 weeks if I’m not mistaken. It’s hard to see the deer damage in the hay fields sometimes but my parents were watching the deer in some of the potato fields that the neighbors have in they were seeing the deer paw the potato’s out of the ground and chewing them up Matt
  4. How much capacity does that thing have? Got to be filling up alot.
  5. Neighboring spud farmers had one like this. Used it on a 2955 for years then on a couple 64xx tractors when they later sold or traded it on 5btm switch plow that they pull behind a 7810. Those long mounted plows leave such long head lands though

    That must be some one else. This place has a couple old IH’s a couple 71xx magnums and a few 51xx maxxiums. And one lonely white didn’t catch the number

    We took a drive up rt 26 to Grafton Notch state park this evening to look for moose or Bigfoot. Didn’t see either lol. However I did see some potato fields. Was a awesome drive with so outstanding views Matt

    Very nice where we are staying. Reminds me of the Great Smokey mountains with the way the clouds hang around the mountains. Though with out the immediate sweating heat and humidity of the smokies. Matt

    I didn’t see many fields but I was driving so I couldn’t look around to much
  10. Drove up to Bethel Maine today with the wife’s family. Was a nice ride on interstates 81-84-295-495-93 and then US routes 3&2. Some pretty country up here. Our cabin is outside of bethel a few miles. On intervale road on the way to the cabin I saw a farm with a magnum or two and several maximums all early models. Matt
  11. Thanks for putting this up here. Mine is affected. Matt
  12. Looks like a Mack chassis. I saw some chassis’s at the Mack factory last year. Looks like the same amount of axles. As someone mentioned, the front three steer, I don’t remember if any of the rest did. Matt
  13. Last weeks Lancaster Farmer paper had an article front page below the fold from the state ag sec urging to vote against the referendum because they think it would cause problems in the cases of animal diseases. I suspect they are against since he is part of the Wolf admin. I feel if it's that major a problem then the legislature would not have a problem granting an emergency order extension. Matt
  14. I finally stopped and got a picture of the tree planter this evening. It’s made locally in New Ringgold. The planter will work in sod or plowed ground with no problems. The disk ahead of the planter shoe cuts a slot in the sod so it feeds around the shoe evenly. The shoe cuts a trench about 10” deep the long tails at the back of the shoe hold the trench open to allow the roots to enter the trench. The tires at the back squeeze the top of the trench shut. I drive in range 1 speed 1 on the Mx90c, about .7mph. Tree spacing 5ish feet between trees is done by a 1-2-3 count or your best guess... lol The planter came with a wheel that would make a click once per rotation to make a more accurate spacing as you would drop the tree at the click but I don’t think they’ve ever been used.
