    This is the very last new 5488 built , hope you guys enjoy it . It is sitting in my customers shop and they run it a couple times a year , change out fuel , they had me put this all together in memory of there dad . He never got to finish it before he got sick and I was honored to finish it for them .

    When I took it back it had 4.4 hrs on it and today it has under 20 hrs last I talked to him . I had to promise him I would never tell anyone where he is located and I will always honor that , it is a great piece of history 👍😎






































    Is that a windshield washer nozzle on the top of the hood?

    Minor correction, SOUTH Omaha Stockyards.

    I've got a picture of the sign , which spans the entire width of the street at the east end of the "L" street viaduct over the rail yard which says "World's Largest Livestock Market and Meat Packing Center".

    I've seen trucks, which included a lot of straight trucks, backed up onto that bridge, waiting to unload, but my cousin says he had seen trucks backed up almost the west end of the South Omaha bridge across the Missouri River.

    The unloading chutes at 33rd and L probably 50-60 (probably more) chutes for trucks to back into.

    Along "Q" (IIRC) was the Armour packing house, and Swift, Wilson, and I believe Cudahy (sp), and the smaller ones were also in the same area, some behind the horse and mule barns on the north side of "L" street.

    What I remember most about the stockyards and exchange building was, the walkways above the pens, the water dispensers, which went 'glug' and released a huge air bubble as you filled your paper cup, in the offices of the commission companies (My Dad used Maly), the cafeteria in the exchange building (although we usually ate at "Johnny's" (not the steakhouse, which is still in business), but the bar-restaurant on the north side of 'L', by the above mentioned horse and mule barns, and, lastly the "trough" urinals in the bathroom and the hoses where you could wash the manure off your bootsl.

    Now the former exchange building has been turned into a Latin Cultural Center, even though they really had fk all to do with the stockyards and its history.

    John Skarda, one of the buyers at Maly's, upon retirement went to Coldwater, KS, where him and his wife bought a  motel, and my Dad would then use him as an order buyer for his feeder calves.

    Do not feel bad about calling it Omaha, as it also ****** me off when they refer to Offut, AFB as being in Omaha, when it really is in Bellevue, which is in Sarpy County.

    Why was it shut down?

    There getting pretty darned big. Think they're going to start going for faster instead of bigger machines. The Lexion 8600 in the vid below is choking down 5.1 BU per second with a 12RN head & the Deere & CaseIH machines are doing 1 BU less per second with 16 RN heads. I'd like to see if the Claas slows down with a 16R head & by how much.


    That is not harvest rate it is unload rate.

    It was part number 8267.  I was wrong about the lateral, it actually has fore/aft(my mistake).

         I also see that now it’s available in red vinyl too

    Thank you, that is a very sharp seat

    I've done a few and as someone told me on here don't cap the lines take them completely off and cap where they come off. After that all you'll need is to find a 12v power  and ground and your done, to me taking the old seat out was the worst part just because it feels like they weigh a ton 

    Is this seat red, would you share it's part number?

    Very nice, does this have for and aft or just lateral movement?  What part number did you order?

  7. Okay hold on. 

    First, Bolt 18 you completely remove, this closes the filter oil supply valve and drains the filter housing so you don't have a mess when you pull the filter cover.

    Second, the valve in the picture is an anti drain back valve between the rear filter and the front one.  It's located in the front filter housing i believe, hydraulics will function fine without it.  My 5488 had the same valve loose when I split it, they are held by a cheesy washer with a spring, I put a tack weld on mine to hold it in permanently, I'll see if I can find some pics.
