  1. Couple weeks on corn , not real behind yet but a lot of unsettled weather coming the next 10 days .
  2. Been a cold wet Spring here in Ky but finally getting some corn in the ground. Most are planting corn and or soybeans this week . A lot of rain coming in the next week so looks like it’s planting will come to a halt. Also have some garden planted. Potato are coming up and early corn is sprouted . Usually plant a few rows of corn every 2-3 week to spread it out . Strawberries are in full bloom also. We put out three rows of Tomatoes this morning, kinda early but hopefully we are done with frost . We plant with 16 and a 12 row Kinze planters.
  3. Watched a online estate auction close to me this week. Tractors went really high. 100 pound weights brought 225 each and a front weight bracket brought 425.00. Super C front wheel weights brought 240.00 . They are usually around 125.00 around here .
  4. Yes, he had a lot of Fords and Cadillacs, along with a few Rolls Royce’s and other sports cars. Had a big Harley with 1 mile on the odometer. It’s a good tour to go thru, took about 3 hours to see it all. He had alot of stuff and most is on display. Wasn’t impressed with the town of Memphis though. Downtown was real sketchy specially at night around Beale street .

    I use this Panasonic dmr-ea38v vhs to dvd recorder, it also plays both. Does a great job on converting vhs to dvds . It’s very easy to use, probably a newer version of it out now.
  6. There was a video of him using it, They let a high school FFA paint the tractor , I would have fixed the hood or better yet left it original
  7. Went to Graceland in Memphis today for the Elvis house tour and saw his Scout and 4010 in one of the exhibits
  8. Always heard rags used to stain wood can ignite themselves if you throw them into a trash can , it’s true. Had a family member throw some into a large trash can , later saw smoke coming out of the garage with the trash can on fire .
  9. We run two 2588’s with 30 foot macdon heads and also have a 8 row corn head. We usually run about 4.0 to 4.2 mph in 55 bushel beans with no problems. Talking to a guy a few days back and he said I can’t believe you all run so slow, I never run under 5 mph and usually 5.5. How fast do any of you run your combines?
  10. Saw this old video from the Wisconsin Dells from 1978 and it reminded me of how it was around our area during that time . Life seemed more laid back then.
  11. It was on a large banner, I remember it hanging at our local dealer
  12. The flow adjusters are in the fast mode, having a tech look at it today . He thinks it’s a stuck valve?
  13. Everything on our 5488 was fine when we put it up last fall, the steering cylinder on one side was leaking so I had it rebuilt back in January. I put it back together with no issues but didn’t start it . We got it out to hook to the salford and the steering works fine after the air got out but now none of the hydraulics work on the remotes. They tried to work real slow but now nothing on any of the three remotes. Oil is full and we changed the filters . Usually the hydraulic pumps we have had go out on other tractors in the past does it while being used . Any ideas , thanks
  14. We have a 42 H on our farm that still has the dual fuel manifold on it running gas with no problems. It’s been that way ever since I can remember.
