  1. IH(CaseIH) 3450 round baler

    We have 6 8480 balers basically same thing just they make a bigger bale than the 3450. The bales are great for feeding calves, as they can pull the hay out easily being soft centered. If the bales are baled good and full and the springs are adjusted properly they make a very nice bale. If a bearing goes out we can have the roller out and bearing back in in a couple hrs
  2. Truck titling - are there any options?

    I ran into this problem 3 years ago, I live in SD and bought a tractor in ND, went up there to haul it home I have a 2006 Ford F-250 super duty and a 32ft triple axle gooseneck trailer. I got pulled over 6 miles from the SD border in ND, and was put out of service because the state trooper said since I can legally haul 26001lbs I have to have a cdl, medical card, USDOT#, even though its a farm vehicle farming is still considered a business and when you cross stateliness you are required to follow federal laws. If I stay within the 150 mile radius or would have stayed in stay I would have been fine. You legally can't even pull the trailer across stateliness legally empty with out the proper license as it can still legally haul the 26001lbs. The trooper did go easy on me though did let me get across the border and only fined me for no medical card $50 fine
  3. life in our corner

    How much does that wagon push that tractor around? Does it handle it as well as the 7140? We have a local dealer that has been selli the heck out of the smaller acreage tractors but they have been selling a lot of the 100 hp loader tractors way cheaper to purchase then the other brands, but they still look cheap built to me
  4. 3pt trailer hitch adapter

    Here are the two we built
  5. 3pt trailer hitch adapter

    When I go out to do chores tonight I will take pics of the two we built. They are cat 2 pins, but heavy enough for cat 3 just can't use it on the 186 hydros then
  6. Old ihc pictures

    I really like seeing pictures with the old hip roof barns. Kind of an era that is coming to an end with so many in disrepair, wish I could have been around when many of them were built
  7. Tractor hours

    I guess in a way we are the same we have a 2001 case 60xt we bought new and just hit 1000 hrs this winter
  8. Tractor hours

    Yeah we do have a 6788 and it only gets used to run silage chopper, stalk chopper, and grain auger, it's a pita to use. So it only gets about 250 hours a year. A lot of idle time on it when on the auger start it in the morning and it just idles all day
  9. Tractor hours

    I was thinking about this while warming up my tractor today, how can there be these 40 year old tractors with such low hours? Are guys just letting them sit in a shed and never start them? Mine sits and idles while warming up or when doing odd jobs it probably idles at least 100 hours a year, not counting any use I put about 700 a year on my tractor and it doesn't get used that much a few chores and haying is about it. I just don't see how a person can have these old tractors with only 2000 to 3000 hours on them total
  10. maxxum 125 tractor

    The loaders come off about as fast as you can take the bucket off. The new loaders have all the hoses together so you can unhook them all that the same time very slick and fast
  11. Mx135

    Not much for electrical problems but they do have a few clutch pack issues, but this usually doesn't appear til that 7-8000 hour range. They also could have had a heavier pto if used a lot the pto can give some problems. We have a mx120 with around 26,000 hours number 1 and 4 power shift don't function and the pto doesn't work but engine has never been touched.
  12. ground/chopped hay in feed

    We feed silage to our calves in feed bunks with the loader bucket twice a day then we put pails of grain on top of that grain is 2/3 oats and 1/3 corn. they have free range to the brome alfalfa hay mix in round bale feeders. This is how we feed our calves that we are backgrounding, this program works very well for us. the calves get 30 pails of grain for 150 head.
  13. maxxum 125 tractor

    They are pretty decent tractors. Just make sure it has the heavier class 4 front end for loader work, otherwise they are nice tractors
  14. Combine differences

    Looking into buying a combine what are the differences between a 1680 and 1688 besides the age? 1688's seem to bring quite abut more money then the 1680s
  15. 1985 s2300

    I have a 1985 S2300 single axle truck and it has two fuel tanks, my question is my fuel gauge reads 1/2 full all the time. Just wondering what is possibly wrong? Is it the gauge and if it is how do I check that, or I do I check the sending unit and in which tank is it in? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated
