  1. Here is a picture of the barn roof getting shingled.
  2. I'll have to take some pictures and share them. We are getting a new roof put on the house and barn the roofing crew has been working for 2 weeks on this project.
  3. Will a module from an 07 or newer slowburban work?
  4. What kind of arena are you building? Is the soil so unstable that you need a 22" cookie under the posts?
  5. Holy wheel weights. They sure stacked them on the M But only the lead M
  6. Nice looking truck! Are you going to put aluminum wheels on the front?
  7. AK, here is a picture of how I plumbed my dump trailer to be either electric/hyd or I can plug it into my tractor remotes. To use the tractor hydraulics I have to close the valves that I have plumbed between the Tee and pump, One set of hoses goes to the tractor the other to the cylinders.
  8. Are you going to HARDOX for your dump body? If you use the dump trailer on your tractor a lot something worth doing is T in a set of hydraulic lines that go from the trailer to the tractor. I did that to ours but I also had to put a shutoff between the tractor line and electric pump because when the cylinders stroked out the tractor hyd oil would get pumped into the electro pump resevoir. If you want I can take a few pictures.
  9. Watch out the BEEs will eat the GMO corn and take it back to the hive and cause colony collapse!!(just kidding) Must be something to do with the sugars in the corn? I remember when our harvester silo tipped over full of high moisture corn the bees were all over that too!
  10. Who is going to tell mom? Amen Got 70 bales off apx 8 acres. Pretty good cover crop. 4X4? 800lbs ea?
  11. My friend who owns the RV place that did the hitch has told me that. He puts them on everyone of his friends and families truck asap. Said he feel a lot more confident with them b/c the truck never wiggles around. It for sure handles it better than the 05. More solid footed I feel. I did a "idiot cut me off" brake event. It appears my rotors on front need a turning. Shook the wheel good. Hate that. We have AIRLIFT bags on our 2500hd Like Jerry said it makes the truck ride better and it takes the sway out too.
  12. Sounds like you are keeping the methane emissions mandate for animal operations in mind. Does that go into effect in 2020 or 2025? O&G industry is also in EPA crosshairs.
  13. Troy here is a link to some ex gov vehicles. Coworker's cousin bought a truck got a good deal on a well maintained vehicle. http://www.asiamotorsinc.com/index.php hyperlink didn't copy over so you will have to copy and paste in your browser.
  14. Mader, you want the CAC in front of the radiator
  15. Looks nice! What color are you going to paint it?
  16. Troy did you take any photographs of the injured cow and the accident scene before it got cleaned up? Might need to start writing operating procedures and "train" employees and the do's and dont's. That way the next time an accident occurs you can show that the employee was properly trained and didnt follow protocol (think manufacturing plants).
  17. You will want to put the Charge air cooler in front of your radiator, an electric fan would be nice plus it will give you room for your exhaust and intake plumbing. Check with your local FSA or extension agent you might be able to get a tax break for repowering your old tractor with a new clean diesel.
  18. Make sure you thank the guys that picked up the slack while new guy gets trained. Might want to add a note to your handbook about shift 1 needs to notify you before working over for shift 2,
  19. Probably worked long enough to be eligible for unemployment. Now he has the easy job of sitting at home and getting paid to do nothing for a while.
  20. Now the Kayaktivists are happy.
  21. I noticed this farm has capability to be connected to a methane digester. How much revenue potential does that bring? Does the manure get pumped to a digester or is there a digester on the farm and the methane gets pumped to a generation station?
  22. Southern MI, grew up running Heinsman travelers. For some reason my brother and I always got to go out and adjust the gun or shut down at 2:30am.
  23. Irrigating is a round the clock chore especially during dry times. Luckily where I live its pump however much water your well can put out.
  24. Maybe you have to trade them some guns and whiskey for water rights? Some Indians here in MI are pretty crooked too. NO offense to anybody on here that is all or part indian.
  25. Troy, you need to find a heinsman,boss or greenfield traveler then you will really enjoy irrigating!
