  1. Got dark as night here at about 4:30 yesterday afternoon, really black cloud on the edge of the front and a lot of dirt in front of that . 70mph + winds and a little rain afterwards, pivots, buildings, power poles, and trees down around here.
  2. It sure wasn't cheap, around 12k for the pro700, receiver, wiring harness, steering wheel with the electric motor in it,and labor to install. It does work good though and is less clutter in the cab, I did have problems with the nav/receiver, it lost its mind on the second day of planting and had to be replaced but CNH took care of it.
  3. I am using trimble autosteer that runs through a nav900 receiver to a pro700 monitor. My dealer sold me this setup so I could run my planter and autosteer on an MX210 with just one screen, the tractor is too old to be autosteer ready from the factory. They did have to change the steering wheel as this is electric steering not hydraulic.
  4. Not arguing with you SD but We had a Cursor 13 in a chopper that was Tier 3 and it ran the blowby back in the engine, well anyway it did for the first season, then they did some pips on it that winter and it came back with a hose to the ground and new engine software.Seems they were having issues with turbo seals or something and were blaming it partially on that. Also some owners were chipping them and blowing turbos so they found a way to derate the engine if things got too hot or something, basically It ruined the engine for me as I had no chip and no problem to begin with. It had the compound turbo setup with one running on the crankshaft, never could keep a gasket between the turbo and the manifold, it would leak boost there and derate just when you got in the power band. Traded it for one with a tier 4 16 litre no more problem and it will eat that Cursor 13 for lunch.
  5. Looks like I'll be keeping this one for a while, I had them come out and change it last fall so I'm good for a while.
  6. My T7-235 New Holland tractor with the 6.7 litre has the filter under the valve cover.
  7. I got some metal flashing that's 18 inches tall and wrapped it all the way around the chopper last fall, worked good.
  8. We need moisture bad here but if it would have snowed here every day that the wind has blown since the 1st of December we'd have been in big trouble. Calling for gusts to 50 again today, corn stalks piled up in every fence line already , what a mess.
  9. I was hoping you were going to get buried out there and we'd get some rain but if they took the snow out for you then we aren't getting any rain either.
  10. And replace the u-joint on the drive coupler
  11. From the looks of the front of the hood on that 4010 I'd say Elvis' muddy $hit covered boots slipped off the clutch pedal at least once while loading the feed wagon.
  12. Can I have this dance, my you're lookin pretty, is there something wrong did he leave you hurting, I don't mean to pry but that tear in your eye gave you away. Perfect stranger Gotta take a little time,a little time to think things over, gotta read between the lines in case I need it when I'm older. Foreigner I'm so tired of being here, suppressed by all my childish fears, if you have leave, I wish that you would just leave, your presence still lingers here, and it won't leave me alone.(My Immortal) Evanescence What you needs a sugar daddy, diamond rings and a brand new caddy.

  13. Just read your last post and realize you're not putting them on cement
  14. We have a tread from a front tire of a 4 wheel truck type floater or something at the back of our working alley, it's about 7-8 feet long and has a different type of tread, don't know how to really describe it but it lays flat and is heavy enough that it doesn't move but light enough that you can drag it by hand and flip it over to clean it off and is probably 3 inches thick including the tread. Those tracks would be very heavy in one piece and almost impossible to clean inside an alley unless you could wash them out with a 2 inch hose or something, since there is a rail on the bottom side and they won't sit flat on the concrete I would think rodents could be a problem also, just my 2 cents.
  15. Not positive it's the same guy but the name almost seems familiar, there is someone from Niobrara that is selling something on Craigslist quite frequently.
  16. I'd have used a shotgun just to be sure, what if he doesn't have his head up?
  17. Round here we call em super truckers
  18. My brother farrows pigs every 3 1/2 weeks, during the winter he takes the cleanings and still borns out to the field for the bald eagles,he has done it for years. They don't nest there but he's about 30 miles from the Missouri River, they must fly down from there. He went out one day this winter and counted 22 eagles, they eat everything but the rib bones
  19. Oh just leave them wheels on there, you be livin the thug life now. I'm a Ford guy myself but that's a nice looking truck, good for you.
  20. Google "wizards power clean" it's good stuff.
  21. Don't hear anything about the truckers convoy in the US either but they had time to interview former attorney General Bill Barr this morning on NBC about a certain ex president
  22. About the war in Ukraine its that it seems to have wiped out the pandemic. I'm sure this topic will get flamed eventually but just had to say it.
