    Your towing rigs and trailers

    Hauled my buddy’s M7060 and disc mower to my farm to help with hay. Truck and trailer pulled great. Also, we had not secured the tractor yet when I took this photo. We did chain everything down.

    Getting hay balers ready

    Been working on my new to me John Deere 430. Had to fix the pto shaft and give her a good cleaning and maintenance. She’s ready to go now. We are hoping to cut next week, weather permitting.

    John Deere 430 baler HP requirement ??

    I just purchased a 435 to run behind my 55 HP tractor. Although I’m sure my tractor would run it, I’m nervous about what will happen when I get a full bale and I’m on a hill.

    Well, here she is! The dealer said a couple of wires had been crossed and it was an easy fix. Turn signals worked, lights worked, brake controller worked, everything is good! She is now home in the barn and will get ready for her first light load of hauling square bales this weekend. I’m going...

    Grading 2555 Died & Won't Start

    After running my 2555 for several hours this afternoon, she suddenly died on me. I was running a box blade down my driveway and it cut off. I popped the hood and checked all connections to no avail. I did, however, see a puff of smoke coming from what I now know is the starter. The starter was...

    Old Hay Elevator

    I recently purchased a 47 acre farm and I found an old hay elevator when cleaning up. It says John Deere on the side - anybody have any idea what model it is or what it would be worth? I don't want to take it to the scrap yard and would appreciate any information!
