    The Great Depression

    I'm not sure all what the neighbours dad did but they would even cook up the brain and such, he even knew a guy that would catch the blood when you slice the neck and keep it in a jar till they made blood sausage, he said he saw it done and it was smelly curdled liquid and the thought of it turned him away my uncle would cut the tongue, liver and heart out the cows when we butchered when I was a kid kinda glad I'm old enough to have experienced that sort of stuff

    The Great Depression

    what a coincidence me and my neighbour were discussing how his dad and neighbour would butcher a pig and waste nothing the only thing left were the teeth and toes, used to butch a lot of stuff now it's not done to much around here anymore the movie on youtube called drylanders by the national film board sums up a lot about the depression that they put up with around here, really good movie wish there was more like it
  3. quite the collection for some reason I see myself like that in 40 yrs, I see he's got the ideal truck and trailer with a winch and everything to bring the dead ones home, nice to see there not goin from scrap anyways, I could spend some time walking around there myself

    plugged the 1460

    i do that quite abit when I plug it slip it into neutral and clean it out if the beater or chopper isn't plugged I spent 8 hrs cleaning barley straw out of a 1460 in my younger years it was mostly string by string that was before cordless reciprocating saw they are the best thing ever for unplugging combines

    ya I had no idea what I was doing when I took mine apart for the first time I had a neighbour come over and give me a hand and now I can take it apart myself but it helps to have another set of eyes hooking it back together to get it lined up

    ya I never got the jack either theres soppose to be a special jack that goes inbetween there then you undo everything and dump the hydraulics at the block by the engine and then the arms should come down and back away and put that wheel on and go but with out the hitch it could be a problem you should be able to fab up one of them easily I just use a bottle jack instead of the jack it works just fine

    ya I wished mine had a block heater In it went I was swathing in December in 2016 but the heater seemed to work ok you think that's bad spinning out try driving it with no header I spun out moveing it over to my smaller shed, if I think what your talking about being shorter are you talking about the side agains the wheel? if so there should be a jack to keep it up as you back away

    I see I've never driven a swather in like that I've heard about it but even 36" through a 30" door on mine I've never wanted to try and damage something this year i'm keeping it in a different shed and amazed how much more efficient my space is not keeping the header in my big shed

    HJV Equip and Rocky Mountain Equip in Canada

    a lot of the dealers around have a lot of the old guys that are nearing retirement and no one to replace as money is better fixing stuff in the oil patch and some mechanics they do get are only there for a short time then move onto another dealer or go somewhere else, nothing wrong with the companies it's more good help is hard to find, my local RME have a few people from the uk working there and they are good hard workers, also dealers are getting bigger and some dealers have a large area to cover so sending someone out on the road sometimes 2hrs away from the dealer to get something fixed

    not that much snow here little skiff's here and there but cool tempts the 30 acres of mine will stay till spring which i'm fine with as it was testing 19.7 I haven't been in the shed for a day or 2 to check the truck and see if its getting warm or not. splitting the swather isn't to hard of job harder to put together than split, I had trouble with the center pin this year not sure why fought wit it then it just came out, takes up a lot of room but nice to have inside, as parts a flippin expensive, mine needs a new canvas and there around 1200 or so, not something you wanna leave outside all year
