Man, I figured between GB and CIH I would have a decent pic or diagram where the lines go.......I was wrong!

As much as you spent on the transmission your local dealer should be happy to walk you through the installation of the loader

you'd think................

I got Brush Hog to find a pdf manual from the GB days and send it for free. Good folks, looks like it gots 90% of my ? in it. The extra line is for load sensing to kick in the pump like on the steering etc. Makes sense now. I do think I am missing the floor brace for the joy stick. I guess it mnts to the post by window latch with a leg to the floor. Have to investigate more....

Getting progress on loader mounting....dont know why I have more pressing things to do. Went to CIH shop and the tech had a 7130 tore down for a speed trans (15000 original hours, 1 owner and clean), so he showed me a bit better the hydro stack set up. Have to pull my wheels.....may take more work than the loader mounting!

Ok, these wheels came on our 1 owner 3800 hour 186 tri-strip. Tires are for corrugated fields and row crops like spuds. These rim are clearly painted with the same paint and time as the tractor. No evidence of any other color on them and the bolts even looked undisturbed. Were these a odd option? Hoping Ken R or Bermuda sees this and replies.

All you have to do is put her in the seat and ride around. Nothing rides as deep as one of those!! What a great looking car for it's age, I can feel myself floating down the road right now.

Man, I was looking back at my own thread. I sure did more a year ago than now! Cant seem to come up with many new pic ideas. Figure I have shown everything to everyone. Maybe the big red line in the check book? nearly 35% drop since Sept. Jan was ok, feb tight, March....."hello, personal biz account manager friend? Yeah we need to talk.". With our co-op's extra ding we will get under $14/cwt making it a official $10/cwt off the high last summer. I try to tell my friends to cut that much off their pay and see if they get cranky........and work the same!

Should post the vid clip i did at that new rotary. Auto teat dipper. Complete joke of $25k! More dip on their flanks than teats.

I hear you TroyDairy!

There are storm clouds forming in my industry also! But everyone ignores the reason , because we had a momentum going and all of sudden because of water problems yields were way off, last year, causing a price spike .( Like I tell guys it makes no difference if price goes up if you don't have a multiplier) this year yields don't look much better then last, in meantime the port strike killed shipments for several months and the dollar increase overseas is causing resistance in market all the while guys are planting almonds at break neck speed.

Can you say eighties all over again, perhaps?

Scary,

BTDT, Tony

Why, yes you should. :) Looking at the pics from your side of the Country never seem to get old to me. Heck I could look at the same cow every day and it's good! I don't know anything about miking but I just can't see the autos working out. I guess when you milk 10,000 that might change things.

Red....GEA, big german dairy equip co., is building in MI a fully automated robot 40 stall rotary. 1 robot per stall. There is 1 in Germany and Tasmania running. If they get it down for a reasonable maintenance program they will hit a home run. DeLaval has a robot rotary in Sweden on a 500 cow days for 6-7 years. 1 or 2 in Aust. Guys who get robots on their smaller dairies all say it wasworth every cent. $250000 per unit for 60 hd. 3rd and 4th robots will start milking thus Wednesday In our county

What I don't understand is if your price is down so much why hasn't milk dropped much in the grocery store?

You're a good man from what I have seen on here and I respect you. Praying you weather the storm.

God bless.
