  1. Your choice. I’ve been catching up on book work all day and feeling a bit lousy too. I figured any kind of tractor/farm talk would end the day on a good note.
  2. Grandpa on dads side started with 101 IH combine, 3300 JD, 77 1440, 83 1460, 91 1680, 99 2388, 2003 2388
  3. I will start. My great grandpas all had Hs Ms F20s I know on my dads side there was a Minni UB and Z and also a couple pull type allis combines. Them with my to grandpas I’m way less cloudy on dads side started with an Allis WC, JD B and an M. Then WD 45 and two 3020 gas. 1206, 706,1066 BS,early 1086, late 986 factory no TA, 81 5488 2wd, 84 5488 MFD, 90 7140 2wd, 92 7140 MFD, 98 8920 MFD and last one he got before retirement in 2005 was a 285
  4. Just thought it would be a good topic. Pretty sure it’s been done before.
  5. I have lived and breathed farming since I could talk. My grandpa and uncle farmed together so I spent every second with them growing up (got countless hours riding in back window of their 5488s and in 1460). In 2000 when I was 14 a local BTO went broke who did most of the custom baling around here. Grandpa helped me buy a tractor and round baler and that evolved into renting ground and building a beef cow herd. Was farming a fair amount of row crop when I graduated high school but those were the sub $2 corn days so it was nothing special. I went to diesel school for a year and then got in to t
  6. I think that’s correct. The meridian augers look the same except the bracing and cables now go past the weak spot ours has
  7. I never changed my priority valve just shined up the spool and it would always work again
  8. Good deal!!! I thought we would never get done this year. Everything turn out well?
  9. We have a Harvest International 13X92 auger that was new half way through harvest 2017. It has always had quite a sag in it halfway between the swing hopper and where the first support starts. Put a couple bearings in the hopper right away. By the start of last fall it was shearing 10 plus bolts per day,had new flighting in the hopper and every bearing on it had gone out. At the beginning of this year on the first bin it started to buckle by the first joint. We lifted it straight and welded on more support. 2 weeks later it buckled behind the same joint and broke the bore pipe and flighting. W
  10. Tonight is one of the first nights I have been home before supper since August. Grilled pork chops and the wife made cheesy potatoes and stuffed mushrooms. Now I’m on the couch watching Garfield with the kiddos. Pretty good evening!!!
  11. Have you checked out the priority valve under the floor. Had similar problem with my 54
  12. Watch for the inner nut turning with the outside. If it does you need to take them all off equally a little at a time or you will lose the threads on your studs
  13. You need an inch impact. I deal with them all the time. Usually if they have been on there a while some will break off then comes the blue wrench. And yes the left side always has left han threads
  14. I have two 2015 cascadias with dd13 470hp no problems here with def or anything. They both run at least 400 miles locally every day. Use 7-8 gallons of def a week
  15. So far just looks like they are going to double my rates
  16. Got paid for the two that tipped over which were actually the same truck 2 weeks apart which totaled out two different trailers and the tractor the second time. The white international was mechanical failure which is not covered. The reverse gear fell off and locked up transmission going 65 mph loaded. It put driveshaft through the trailer and sheared the bell housing and fly wheel off the engine
  17. It wasn’t all bad. We had good yields for the dry summer we had and the corn stood well. Got a lot of tillage done while waiting on combine parts too!
  18. Lost 2 trucks, two hoppers, combine transmission, hydro, 2 fires, new 90 ft auger buckled, feederhouse driveshaft exploded and had several gear boxes go out on cornhead and combine if I’m not forgetting anything else lol
  19. Been a bit of a rough harvest here but a lot of good too. Got started on September 17 and got done today at 11:03 AM
  20. Have almost all cornwell here Truck stops every Tuesday weather I’m here or not. I just leave the broken stuff on the counter and it’s new when I come back. The truck here stops at every shop farm or anywhere they will let him
  21. We still have corn to pick too but still pretty muddy. Maybe tomorrow
  22. I brined a 26 pound fresh ham yesterday put it on smoker last night. Starting to look good!!!
