  1. Ok, I think I figured this plug out. bitty you are correct. I took the Euro plug apart and it is only using two pins One 12 volts positive and one to negative. I am going to find the US style female plug end and remove the Euro plug. Thanks everybody for your help. I owe you one. Eric
  2. Thanks bitty, Any information would be appreciated. Eric
  3. Thank you NY1468,bitty and mmi, I'm thinking maybe I should just remove the euro style plug and install a US style plug. Does anybody know what each prong connects to? I understand I have 12 volts DC. positive and negative just not sure about the third smaller prong. Eric
  4. Hi everyone, I need some help. I have a Vicon bale wrapper and I ordered a new bale monitor and the power plug that came with the monitor has a different style plug. The dirty picture shows the outlet in my tractor with the rectangle shaped prongs and the picture on the top with the round prongs is what the new monitor came with. I would prefer to find an adaptor so that I can use the bale rapper in different tractors . Has anybody had this situation?
  5. I attached two pictures of the first batch. When I made the pancakes in the picture the syrup was still warm. Eric
  6. We had a warm spell last week and we got just over 40 gallons of sap from ten trees. We built a 2" x 3" wood fired evaporator at work over the winter and were able to boil 40 gallons in about 5 hours. End product was just under one gallon of of syrup.
  7. Now I have more questions. Who does your testing and how quick do you get the results back? When you hand cut samples do you take random samples from each field? How much of a sample is required for a sample? Lastly, about how much does it cost per sample. If I'm asking to many questions let me know, I have learned so much from this site. Eric
  8. Interesting, is there a minimum moisture percentage that you would not wrap at? Also is there a max. moisture not to exceed? I am also assuming that a net wrapped bale is preferred over a twine wrapped bale (less of a chance of a puncture). Again I'm sorry this thread is going in this direction but when I saw the bales in the first post I had to ask. Eric
  9. Thanks for the tips on marking the bales, I think I am going to do something similar. I was thinking of taking a short video of my fields before I cut them so a buyer can see what they are getting. I have been doing a lot of research about bailage and a lot of people talk about cutting at the boot stage. What are your thoughts on cutting at boot stage. Sorry for all the questions . Eric
  10. Thanks for the response. If you wrapped at a high moisture does the wrapped bale freeze solid in the winter? Eric
  11. I always had a thing for the Transtars, I'm showing my age now but I got my CDL in a Transtar. Can you explain the bailage process? I do hay here in Conn. and with all the rain we had this summer I'm told wrapping high moisture hay would have been a good idea. At what percentage do you wrap the bale? How many wraps? How is the finished product months later? I don't want to change the subject but I'm curious. Eric
  12. Central Injection did my 450 pump and I would recommend them. Eric
  13. Thank you. I'll try this tomorrow. Eric
