Lol! Boy that sure would be a heck of a lot cheaper if it would! I could sit out in the elements for that! See not everyone on the forum is in combative mode. Biggest percentage of us have a good sense of humor 👍

Thank you!  I have to admit that I was feeling pretty snappy this morning.  In spite of the time changing.

No where near big enough. It's 50'deep by 60' wide. We have a 11' wide loft on the one side for parts and bulk oil storage. 14x22 and 14x14 doors. I will add pictures later when in better WiFi

The 8950 came in to repair the door and reattach the window to it. Fuel leak at the lower tank and then discovered the wheel bearing was going out on the left side . I have to get the corn planters in next

Should be mostly done the nurse trailer tomorrow. I ordered valves to make it easier by using just one pump and one hose to fill and empty the trailer. It is mostly all used components aside from the 4 cross members to hold the tank. 21.5-16.1 tires that were from a corn planter we had made ten years ago. It was eliminated by the 1200 pivot planter we got locally. Yellow frame was under a knight 3030 mixer that was shot

I have not but I should be.  

I have rolled some rice but that is really winter work.  I am trying to get the 4366 back together to finish rolling.  I need to rebed my corn ground and disk/land plane the rice ground.  Instead I am working on broken down stuff.

Thx-Ace

We are trying to get going. Said on news tonight first time since november 4 days with no rain. Suppose to be dry all next week. Mostly just checking calving cows lately had 31 since Feb. 24th. Today started drilling grass in pastures, and putting new lines on 496 disk. Local parts store had big filter sale so trying to get lots of fluids changed. 

Next week going to seed a corn field back to grass. And disk a new farm i leased for tobacco, last farmer just left it no cover crop. I will disk it and roll it then leave till close to setting and strip till it. If it warms up end of next week going to burn down all my wheat on tobacco ground. May try to get some fertilizer on pasture and hay ground. Hoping to get a new field of grass hay sprayed next week too. Early  Tobacco plants are up good in greenhouse be crunch time  here soon.

When the rain starts back good bit of work to do to one of H2a worker houses. Be pretty much wide open here till Christmas now.

That would be terrible. There's a few around here. A guy raised some for Tofu beans or however you spell it, and got rejected from damage I heard he's got 50 acres of those yet. I was around Kenton last week and saw a couple fields of beans yet. Looked like a steam roller went across them too. Still a few isolated fields of corn standing.
