  1. That is somewhat funny to me. My boss owns and still uses a 7ft MC rotary scythe. Mostly just for the fluffing of hay. They raise a lot of brome grass and it tends to do a better job than their Pequea rotary tedder. Her dad actually bought it new and used it behind a 350 for years till he bought a 686 new and then it has lived behind that or their 574 since. They also own and use an MC direct cut flail chopper. Neat old pieces.
  2. Take it with a grain of salt but my experience with Cat ctl's is the side and rear visibility is absolutely horrible. We have rented one the past 3 years at work between 2 neighboring townships and the one I work for. Seems like every tool we need to use beyond a bucket keeps the loader arms right next to you where you cannot see out the side windows of the machine. Rear visibility is non existent and if the drive sprocket gets a little too much debris packed around it they are a nightmare to clean out. Used a buddies 323E JD over the summer and it was hands down nicer to operate, to me at
  3. A 300 6 sounds like an interesting project. I would like to someday put a 3.3 Cummins into an H. I know Ed Leaman on the forum has done an adapter plate in the past to put that engine into a small frame IH.
  4. Well that really stinks. I admire that collection of harvesters you have there. I had an uncle with a 101 when I was a kid.
  5. You have a 600 Case do you not? I ran one of them many an hour for my grandfather
  6. Just Exactly like my DC Case. Still not done and for what is in it I could have bought a decent 66 series and went tractor pulling for fun and still been ahead.
  7. Seems like letter series are on the same path now a days as well.
  8. Where'd ya pick up that tractor? LOL! It's a good shot of it
  9. Hallmark tends to get turned on in our house as well a good deal of times. 😂😂
  10. I went to school for Heavy Equipment Technology. Worked a job with Central Tractor and helped dad on our small farm. Also was dating my now wife at the time. That was almost 25 years ago and I only have really used that degree to any extent for the last 7 of those years. It did pay me some benefits in the end and I got to meet guys from different backgrounds (albeit quite a few in that program were also farm kids themselves). I never experienced the "college life" per say as I commuted an hour to and from school everyday. The 10 year never ending college bill has been long paid for but i
  11. I used to like snow. That was before I became a municipal road worker. Now the only thing I like about it is that I get a paycheck for dealing with it
  12. You're a sick individual liking that 4 letter S word! I LOATHE that wretched crap allthough it makes for a good paycheck when we get it. LOL!!
  13. We have been watching and getting up to date on the Marvel Avenger movies in order when we have time most of the summer. Up to Black Panther and we were going to watch it tonight but the Mrs fell asleep on the couch and the youngster was more interested in her minecraft videos on youtube. So I ended up watching truck and tractor pulling videos on youtube instead.
  14. That's a pretty cool site. I have used Flightaware to look up flights for a number of years now but this is much cooler. Cool to see a 747 go over my house and look it up and many times see it came from somewhere in Europe and is heading to Florida. Been a few military planes lately overhead that do not appear on flightaware.
  15. Dad did not want holes in the forks for our skid steer. Not sure the reason why but he has bent more than one set moving logs and other things so.... Anyway what we did was weld a reciever tube into the frame of the backrest for the forks and we can slide in any hitch we want to use. Can use the skid steer to move a snow mobile trailer, gooseneck or even our lowboy with a lunette eye hitch with the right hitch slid in the receiver tube.
  16. You found a creek around here with water in it? All the ditches and little creeks are dried up or really low down this end of the valley.
  17. My favorite thing was moldboard plowing and working the ground after that with a disk. Now the farm is rented and it is all no till.
  18. Liner is in good shape and held water when it was emptied. We just wanted the added security of a new one in case something happened in the time since it was torn down. Currently it holds about 3 inches of water but I am going to try and fill it this weekend slowly with the garden hose. What scares me is that I think it shrank a little bit since it was taken out. I am afraid it is going to either come off of the bead track or else just rip on a seam. Hopefully I am wrong but time will tell. As for the filter it has a Hayward sand filter.
  19. Back in the days when my great grandparents owned our farm and we had the 15-30 on the farm there was also a 3 wheeled Silver King that had the chain in the steering and that one had a Hercules engine in it.
  20. Wife and I refinanced and put up an above ground pool and a deck this year. Pool is used and not very old but in excellent shape. Picking things up is a crap shoot for sure but luckily the only problem we have had is getting a new liner. Want one but they are non existent to get at this point so we are going to cross our fingers and take a chance on the one we have. Things are hard to get like has been said
  21. WOW! That is just sickening to see. If anyone watches Cole the cornstar on youtube he had video of their local coop where the bins were all knocked over but what was amazing to me was that the anchors were pulled right out of the concrete and chunks of the concrete went with it. Sad deal for all involved. Almost makes me glad out little farm is rented out and someone else is taking the risk.
  22. Nick Welker hinted a few months ago on their youtube channel to the fact that this was going to happen. I think it is awesome and glad to hear that the Williams brothers are taking it back to Big Sandy to once again work their farm. I have been fascinated by this beast ever since I first heard about it. Years ago when the Toy Farmer released the models of the 747 I got both versions of it in all 3 scales. Anyone else have them?
  23. For those that like Schulte I completely agree on their quality. They are under the umbrella of Alamo Corporation. Here is a few of Alamo's companies across the globe that make mowers. Alamo, Bomford Turner, Bush Hog, Dutch Power Company, Herder, McConnel, Rhino Ag, Rousseau, Schulte, Terrain King and Tiger. Using a Tiger side flail at work for roadside mowing and a rear Alamo flail on the tractor for the ditchlines I have to say both of them are built like TANKS! Especially the Tiger. Thing that we hit on roadsides are never things you would see in a normal field and they j
