  1. SMTA equipped to burn "tractor fuel"? I know there was one at the 2nd roundup in Bloomsburg and they said it was quite rare.
  2. We had a year between about 92 and 96 where the summer and fall were very wet. It was before my dad had bought our current 766 and that came in 97. We were picking corn at the time yet and we had a 327 NI 2 row we pulled with our M. Even with new 14.9 tires on it at the time the M just could not pull that picker and the 150 bushel gravity wagons we have thru that muck by itself. I spent my time keeping the chain tight on the front with our 43 H providing just enough tug to get us thru. There were times it was a struggle for both and there may have been one or two times that there were bac
  3. Danny has the answer to a T. Scarifier the potholes to the bottom and then rip up the whole road with the blade, add whatever material is needed, regrade it and compact it right away. If they make too many passes trying to grade they will work the fines out of the bigger stones and it will unravel much quicker. Another question is the road loer than the shoulder in any spots where the road can act like the ditchline? Water is the number 1 enemy of a road.
  4. Yeah a bit different than our operation. LOL
  5. For the most part I cannot complain about our local Penndot shed. They do a decent job honestly. I know one of the plow drivers as he lives within the township I work for and he said in our storm last week that they were down 4 trucks at one point. At work when they do the yearly budget the first thing on roads is to figure what is needed for salt and anti skid for the year. Summer roadwork is then figured after that as to what can be done every year. Salt we can only take so much as we are locked into a set amount that is based on past use. We have to use at least 60% of that amount
  6. Pretty cool. We have an 11 shank 3 point mounted 55 on our farm. I'm going to have to study pictures now because ours has a different setup for the toplink mount. Maybe because ours is only a 2 beam model instead of 3?
  7. I am away plowing roads for work and my wife has to do the shoveling. Since she has issues with her back this year I bought her a Toro power shovel to clean our walks. It is like a 12" snowthrower on a stick. Works pretty slick if you keep after it and don't let it get any deeper than 6".
  8. Looks excellent! Will you will be able to get it dirty now that it is all shined up?
  9. In my part of Pa the ash is all but gone. What hasn't already come down is emanate at this point. Deal with it every week at work. Some of the roads in the township I work for are in hollows and the roads are lined with them ready to fall or already have.
  10. Got it in my left ear. Have had it for around 15 years. Mine is the constant 24/7/365 ringing. Most days I don't even notice anymore unless I really think about it. I do tend to turn my head to listen to people when they talk to me and sometimes I think it makes people feel I am uninterested in what they have to say. Mine came from target shooting with a 30.06 on an aluminum scaffold plank with no ear protection next to a steel building. Besides the ringing and reduction in hearing in the left ear the other thing I notice is certain pitches I cannot hear. Crickets outside a window at ni
  11. James May from BBC's Top Gear had a side show a few ago called James May's toy stories. He built a full size house out of Lego's Pretty cool show to watch actually. He also did stuff with toy trains and slot cars on other episodes. Lot of videos on youtube of him building things.
  12. Good luck and hopefully you come out good in the end. I rode in the work truck with my coworker up until the day before he got sick and was out of work for 6 weeks. I never changed my habits and went on with life as usual. Never got anything or had any symptoms.

    Hard to choose which one they have listed for safe on their website is the best. The 966 looks nice but if funds were unlimited it would be the narrow front 10.
  14. Here I was expecting to see some special paint scheme on a Steiger. This was much better though, at least for a laugh.
  15. While not in a squadron on a plane my now 95 year old grandfather was an infantryman in WW2. He was in hospital for 3 months from shell shock and when he got out was in the MP's. His mind on things today are blurry but from his days in France he is sharp as a tack. He does not share much about it though and what he saw. Hard to imagine what every service member endured in that war.
