  1. If you google Castlewood SD tornado it will make you sick.
  2. I had an intake plugged on one side of the road and an open intake on the other side so I improvised.
  3. We got hit pretty good. A lot of bins blown in sheds down. We didn’t have power for 20 hours. Neighbor half a mile away lost his hip roof barn. Completely gone. Blew his livestock trailer over. We faired ok lost some trees had one come down on top of a tractor and our barn is shifted to the east about 10 inches. Blew all the windows out.
  4. I don’t post much but just thought I would share what happened to me the other day. Day started out normal heading to work after doing a few things around the yard and taking the new dog out. Stopped at a stop sign and had a water bottle laying on my passenger seat that rolled on the floor. I remember thinking to myself just leave it alone you don’t need it. Mile and a half down the road instincts took over and I reached down to grab it and felt the pickup lunge to the left as my leg hit the steering wheel. Looked up and I was heading for the ditch. I didn’t roll and I don’t have a scratch on me but I hit the ground hard. They airlifted me to Sioux Falls where they determined I crushed L1 vertebrae in my back. The neuro surgeon elected not to do surgery and sent me home with a fitted back brace for the next 3 months. I am alive and very fortunate that nothing worse happened and I have a great group of friends and family that will put my crop in for me. Moral of the story- I am 35 years old have a wife and 4 kids and granted my life has changed greatly for the short term it could have been over just for a bottle of water. It happens in the blink of an eye. Please be safe.
  5. We still have to get together some day so I can give you the rest of those parts.
  6. I would stick to a a gas motor unless you want to spend a lot of time and money. 706 are to short height wise and length wise for a 400 series with out a fair amount of work. It can be done, but if you want it to look nice it will take a lot of work. The pictures are of my 806 that started as an LP.
  7. I have one but mine is not the take down model. I leave mine in the pickup. I have a red dot with a laser on it. Works excellent for coons, skunks, and other nuisance animals. Will take a picture tomorrow.
  8. So I know it is a poor picture but my 7140 was bubbling out the side of the head gasket right after I rebuilt it also ran it on the dyno and it quit. That was 600 hours ago and I have had no problems since.
  9. Started off really good ended with mud.
  10. 706 German

    Cold

    Not trying to rub it in at all…
  11. 7140 set on 120” with spacers. Use it for planting. No issues.
  12. 806 gas has longer frame rails then a diesel.
