I'm Tired of Negativity! Picture Time

Recommended Posts

Taken Apr. 14, 2019   The hose reel has 10" perforated  field drain tile on it.   I built this reel from  van trailer axles,  it has a hydraulic tilt reel and the center spear is made from the trailer axle and hub.   GT&T

Here the word turbine will lower the value half.  All have engines.  Even though no one uses them for manure anymore.  Run ethanol free and 0 issues frankly.  Need hydros for leg down psi and turning heavy buggers anyways.  Infinite control for speed too.  You may have had Bauer from Austria.  Dealer here still sells em.  Odd fittings, odd tires, odd sprinkler,  only normal thing is honda engine.....  Only place for anything is dealer and $.  There is a Italian brand around too....same over thought things.  Cadman from CA....1 spud guy got 4 5 years ago and says needs 4 to keep 3 in fields so unreliable.  

Worse is the MatterMacc comp controls...we have had issues with boards frying.  Every excuse from Italian manufacturer.  Lo volt, hi volt, static etc.  1400 each is nuts.....even had buddy who computer dork try getting parts.  Some odd capacitors they only make and use and wont sell.  But i wouldn't have one with out....you set it to be in at 5am...and it is.  Every day....no guessing and counting links or dia of hose mattering.   That being said....hose irrigation is a pain.  We dont have big enough fields to justify pivots, some years we only irrigate 6 weeks, not flat enough area to flood, the amt that evaps is sad with big gun.  All berries run tape now and 1 spud guy on some fields.  Says nice to do and does great job but $ to set up but easy to manage water.

 

No, wasn't a Bauer............Rybo I believe it was?  

I prefer the turbines, they work good, simple and not much to go wrong.  Did the drip tape thing here, was a bigger pain than it was worth.  A good reel, pump, and buried main with well placed hydrants is a joy to use,  had one farm here that was well setup, think we only used a elbow and two 10ft sticks of pipe to irrigate the whole 100 acres with a reel.  Had other farms with buried main, but they put 2 hydrants on the whole thing so you had to still lay pipe.  Didn't make much sense to me, but that is how people here work, save a dollar now so you spend 10 later.

Yep here we bury 6" and set risers at every run....300' iirc.  What are pipes?🤣

 

 

Dont worry....we have a wagon of 5" for rental land.  But seriously 90% have buried and risers where need to be.  Most are 6" risers but alot ofnolder 4" still.  We pump manure to drag line via buried lines too.  We have drug the manure soft hose too.  Jumper piece from reel to 5" hose and then chain to frame and 5" fitting.  Dont even turn off the water.  Bungee flipper and drag 300' and set back down and pull out.

…….a 504 Farmall...that B in Law    extended upwards  ..to work in the tobacco...…(I helped with the welding/fabrication.....not the design !!)...worked just fine....

...the other three pics are my idea of "tractor porn"......self explanatory......though roading  with the old D6...although ''off colour ''  its a great job in that environment.....and being the brand it is......and the age......you don't need a mobile workshop in the near vicinity

…(yes I have several TD9's..two TD6's...several T20's...none adorned with ''pushing devices "….)

Spent the afternoon loading trimmed branches into the bucket and dumping them on the ever-growing brush pile on the back 40. Beer break now. Life is good.
