  1. 450 power steering stoped working

    Hi everybody, It's been a while sense I have posted. This problem started last summer when I was cutting hay, when I would go Turn the steering wheel it felt like the wheel was stuck and as soon as I turned harder the steering worked fine. At the end of the summer I lost all power steering function. I'm sure this has happened to other tractors and I'm hoping somebody can give me some ideas as what may be causing the power steering to stop. thanks in advance. Eric
  2. Need opions on a New Holland 640 round baler

    Was there just one monitor offered? Any leads on where to find one. This baler has only baled dry hay. The guy that is selling it said that he would listen for the click.
  3. Ok, I have a good friend who has been baling hay for the last 30 years and now he wants to get out of the hay cutting business. He has a New Holland 640 round baler that he s selling and wants to know if I am interested. Mechanically it seems pretty good, he has been baling a couple hundred bales every year with little issues. Cosmetically is not the best with some bent panels. It's been stored outside probable it's whole life. I am not that familiar with round balers and I am looking for some advice. This is what I know about it. It is a 640 auto-wrap and it is a silage special. Being an auto wrap I believe it should have some type of monitor just not sure what type. Now he bales without a monitor. There is a cut wire on the tong. Also what does silage special mean? It is twine only. He wants $3000.00 for it. I will get some pictures tomorrow. Any thoughts? Eric

  5. Small bale accumulator with grapple

    Wow, I didn't think I was going to get so many responses. I have a few questions. Why do some accumulators turn the bale on to it's side? What is the benefit? Also, I kind of like the grapple that runs a string around the bunch of bales, I would think this would be a great help with transporting. Any thoughts? Thanks. eric
  6. Just curious if anybody here uses a small bale accumulator and grapple set up. I am finding it harder ever year to find help with small hay bales. I'm thinking about upgrading to a tow behind bale accumulator that hooks to the baler. Then pick up a group of 10 bales with a bale grapple and putting them on a flat bed trailer. Unloading would be easier with a loader and stacking them in the barn. I have been looking online and I see that there are lots of options and I was curious if anybody here uses a set up like this. I think I can cut my helpers down to just me and maybe one person. Any thoughts? Eric
  7. Very rare V8 Farmall H?

    Maybe you can weld on some wings and use it as a crop duster with that fan/propeller being so out of place.
  8. Very rare V8 Farmall H?

    Somebody has to buy this very rare V8 Farmall H. I just don't know how to describe it. You have to see it . http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/292043565704?

    I'm not sure of the reserve, I tried to call my brother and left a message. Eric
  10. Does anybody have any knowledge on the Jeep FC model trucks? The reason I ask is my brother has a 1962 FC 170 jeep that he is selling.. When he checked the serial number it reads FW17023001. These are not a common jeep and trying to decode the serial number has been next to impossible. My question is could this be the first built truck of this model? I think they only made around 1400 trucks total. If anybody knows anything about serial numbers I would like to know your thoughts. Eric

    In the Snowbouind film at 2:27 did he say hay balers? Eric
  13. Suggestions for a new straight truck

    Yes, please explain.
  14. Suggestions for a new straight truck

    Very nice, a clean truck has alot to say about your buisness. Most FL series trucks that I see on the road are in pretty bad shape. When we go through a road side DOT inspection the inspector tells us that they are impressed with the condition of our truck. We never had any major problems. Eric
