    Always nice to have extra storage.  To a untrained wheat farmers eye it looks like the wind got to it a bit. Any trouble combining it? Hopefully it’s yeilding good. 

    It’s not too bad anything broke over is a couple feet up so I’m getting it all. Yields are all over the place but better than expected not seeing a lot under 165 in Hills low ground is very good

    Just out of stupid curiosity, was it the axle or the gear itself that failed on the Brent? We have a newer 544 and am wondering if there's anything we need to keep a eye on before something like this happens to us.

    Okay, the wagon makes perfect sense, but what happened with the truck? Sunny and dry and not a busy road how did this come about?

    There were 4 of our trucks, two other guys shelling corn and one cutting beans on that road. The driver got lost in the dust from the other trucks and pulled over to let dust settle. When he took off again the shoulder caved off under the trailer
