  1. Yes my farmland is in the arkansas river floodplain but this is water trying to get from the mountains to the river! We're getting alot of smoke too. Those hippies out west are smoking too much pot. The smoke is getting out of hand! Thx-Ace
  2. I remember when there were many dump trucks like that working. Now everyone wants a 3 axle dump truck so they can gross 70,000lb. I still use two loadstar single axle grain trucks to haul rice to the grain bins. I could probably use a few parts. Thx-Ace
  3. Thanks for the info. Y'all are great! Those look like early eddins rice carts but I don't know. I wish the images was better Thx-Ace
  4. Thanks for the input from in country. I always like to hear the 'local' perspective. Local being in country for most of us. Thx-Ace
  5. Eagle ag service fertilized my rice again today.
  6. Several plane crop dusters have crashed round here during my lifetime. Last year a crop duster I sometimes used got caught in power lines and died in the crash. Years ago I was flagging for Jim Mitchell as he sprayed stam on our rice field. Suddenly the sound changed and I looked over to see him nose down in our field! We ran out to him, expecting the worst. When we got there he was standing in the water next to his plane cussing and kicking it. The engine had pulled off, causing him to crash. We took a dual wheel tractor and pulled him out to the road. Then we carried the engine out and loaded it in the back of a pickup. He drove up to Wichita and brought back another motor and prop. After alot of beating and welding he took off and went back to spraying! They crash too! Thx-Ace
  7. Here's a pic of some early rice combines in Louisiana. I am guessing around 1950 but not sure. Can anyone identify them? Just curious. Thx-Ace
  8. I know where a 1026 demo and 4586 with Cummins 855 are. Not for sale at the moment but they could be bought pretty easily. Thx-Ace
  9. Ultimately we don't own the land but are stewards of it for a while. Our ancestors took it from someone. Someone will take it away. But people are brutal and stupid. Thx-Ace
  10. I got a flyer for this in the mail. They are very wrong if they think I can afford 1800 acres of prime duck hunting land. They have some magnum tractors too though. This will bring between 4 and 10 million dollars. Buyers premium will be between upwards of a million... The equipment is small change in comparison to the land. Blackmon auction is the backgate auction company. Thx-Ace https://blackmonauctions.com/project/1800-acre-real-estate-equipment-auction/
  11. I've read that. I'm looking for an insiders perspective. It seems like i have read posts here from South African members. Thx-Ace
  12. Do we still have any members from South Africa that might shed some light on what's happening down there? I realize this is political but not for most of us. I'm just hoping for information from the inside. Thx-Ace
  13. We have two sailboats that were named when we bought them. The Catalina 27 is "le bon temps" but should be "tornado magnet". She's been damaged by two different tornadoes in the past 10 years! The Catalina 22 is "pharsalia". My wife wants to name her "afternoon delight". Thx-Ace
  14. Buddy Cloose was the go to concrete contractor round here for decades. He guaranteed his work. Guaranteed that it won't burn and guaranteed that nobody would steal it. With a slow southern draw. Thx-Ace
