  1. I put em in when near a barn, but never worried when they were not. Also if in corn and snow was coming i want the grain tank full, i prefer corn in the bottom of the tank instead of snow
  2. Thats 1 of the reasons not to run a coulter as dirt poor & chris ny say. Less blades = more wt per blade= better penetration.
  3. Have no-tilled 1000s of acres with 800 & 900 planters stock from factory in corn stalks, bean stubble, alfalfa sod [ dead & green], wheat stubble, and various cover crops [dead & green] . Only thing i ever modified was fert openers, but have not used starter for 25 years. Got 1st 800 in 1983
  4. I bought a brand new ram with the 5.9, owned it 8 months and calculated i was more than paying for a new diesel. So i sold it to a neighbor who was a chrysler man, he loved it, it was a 3/4 ton. He drove it 200000 mile hauling a cattle trailer. Put 1 jasper engine and 2 or 3 transmissions in it through its life. His next one was a diesel. I bought my 1st new diesel then. lost $500 on the ram. My godzilla powered F-350 gets better MPG than the ram.
  5. Always heard the speeds were not right on the CDC powered 16 series till the 44,66,88s came out. Was there a kit or update to correct that ?
  6. You want large wire concaves for corn & beans. The "standard" combine could very well have large wire concaves.
  7. Neighbor blew the windshield and enough silage to mostly fill the truck cab into one a few yrs ago when truck couldn't pull a hill. After that they chain the truck to the chopper in some places
  8. seems very reasonably priced for the last 2wd 5488 in todays market. JMHO
  9. Mine have all been that way since the 1st one in 91. There is also 2 levels of serration available now iirc, don't think i had a choice on my early ones
  10. My dad used to talk about the ford in the silo, he said they talked about it when he attended Purdue.
  11. Have run only SCH bars since 91 on 16.5, 20, & 22.5 ft 820s and 15, 20, & 30ft 1020s. Have been very satisfied with them. In answer to your question, I have always put the floor pan clips on top directly under the nut on the guard bolt and have had no issues.
  12. You're on a roll, strike while it's hot !
  13. My 1480s were supposed to have brakes ? Always thought the emergency brake was dropping the head !
  14. My electric company guy told me to use gas exactly for the reasons you mention.
  15. Easily keep my 40x48x18 at 65 degrees with a 75 gallon LP water heater in northern IN, 9 mile from MI line. Actually wish i had a 40 gallon. Have lots of insulation.
  16. My brake pedals stick real bad on my 186, they only get used about once every few years. Easy to forget till i smell them. Got to use a pry lever to get them back up. Just never use them on a hydro
  17. Miss his posts & pictures of barnfull of Magnums. Any one heard from him ?
  18. All you need to do is chase the lift line to the "T", cap it off, and run a hose to the tractor if you want a seperate tilt circuit. I only tilt mine a couple times per cutting when on the go so have never seperated the circuits. Working on trading my 7 season 316 for next year, has been good. 2 guards, 3 shock hubs, and knives been it since new. Its my 6th New Holland center pivot discbine since 1999 and my most liked due to quick change knives
  19. Have only ever seen the 2 piece on 56/26 series and early 66 series. Only talking about large frame, don't know about the 6xx. The dual pto is designed to eliminate the need for drawbar adjustment, when the drawbar is correct for one it is also correct for the other
  20. Front fenders, mowers, & more that i cant recall right now
