    Help me pick a tractor (25-45 HP)

    Holy cow. I guess something is wrong with me. I have 65 acres, I have a Kubota L3130. And I lose power since I am at 8000 ft. I feed large bales also. I recently bought a cab tractor since I couldn’t stand snow blowing in an open station at -40°F! I mow 55 acres with a 5’ woods. I say...

    DJI Mini 4 Pro Drone questions

    And made it back? Wow. I hate to get more than 40% battery drained before I start heading it back. For me in a straight line it can go 3-4 miles away before I turn back at 40% battery. I am at 8k above sea level.

    Lots of YouTube videos that test this to watch. Most generally run out of battery before range. Spoiler alert, most are 4-5 miles for the max.

    Controller to drone connectivity requires line of sight. So make sure not to fly where you lose line of sight.

    Misdemeanor for operating without a CDL in Colorado

    https://www.9news.com/article/news/investigations/colorado-increases-penalties-for-driving-a-commercial-motor-vehicle-without-a-valid-license/73-e6279eb6-3ecb-4155-a20b-e521de21072f Hopefully with this law it becomes more clear what the rules are for needing a CDL.

    Yes, as said above it has several modes which will circles an object. Or it will lock on to moving objects and follow up to about 15 mph. It will navigate around obstacles to follow. You choose follow behind or to the side. All these settings are unattended flight to allow you to do...

    DJI Mini 4 Pro Drone questions

    This is a little misleading. 250g and above only requires $5 registration for every 3 years. If you are commercial you need a license. But personal use only requires registration. Remote id is not an issue with new drones. All of them transmit all the time.
  9. stumblinhorse

    DJI Mini 4 Pro Drone questions

    All newer DJI drones have remote id, regardless of weight. My M3Pro has it since it is newer. If you go over 249, you have to register it, but you do not need a license unless you are commercial.

    DJI Mini 4 Pro Drone questions

    No, it actually requires Wi-Fi to be shut off to fly. And I would not use a phone. The controllers have a screen. Also the remote comment is misleading above. All drones have to have remote id now. So any newly purchased will by default have it, any older ones must be retro fit with...

    I think no battery power is recent. I pull my batteries for storage. I have to log in often.
  13. stumblinhorse

    DJI Mini 4 Pro Drone questions

    The mini does have to have a “recent” log in. Otherwise it only allows it to go a 50 feet or so. You will never notice if you use it often. I think the login will expire if not powered up every so often.
  14. stumblinhorse

    DJI Mini 4 Pro Drone questions

    The new controllers have a screen. No phone needed. That is what I have. Works great. You have to login to get your settings, but then you turn off Wi-Fi to fly and you are good to go not sharing… And yes every YouTube video being drone is an exaggeration. But I see them quite often. If...

    DJI Mini 4 Pro Drone questions

    I do not agree that you need a 107 to post drone content to YouTube. YouTube hasn’t ever sent me a penny for my content. Probably never will. There is literally drone footage now in every YouTube video out there. There is nothing in the regs that say if your videos are publicly available you...

    Trailer recommendation for a New Holland Workmaster 75

    Trailer recommendation for a New Holland Workmaster 75

    What I mean is if you get that long with 14k axles, you won’t have any rating left for cargo if you don’t go up to 24k axles. The trailer will weigh 6-7k. @EddieWalker strapping down takes a couple minutes. I use the few stake pockets or d-rings on mine.
  26. stumblinhorse

    Trailer recommendation for a New Holland Workmaster 75

    Anything longer than 22-24’ you‘ll need duals and you’ll be up in the 24k range. Then you are gonna get pulled over for a CDL. My set up allows for me to have something on the 3pt, and still ”look” under 26k…

    Trailer recommendation for a New Holland Workmaster 75

    I have a 22’ diamond c GN with super singles. Fits my Case 75C perfect. 14k was too close for me for weight, so mine is 18k. I like ramps, it is more flexible for hauling IMHO.

    What do you drive for a truck?

    All my vehicles have enough power. So getting more power out of my 392/6.7/5.9 is not important to me at all. What I want is something easy to maintain myself at my own shop.

    Pulled over for a one-ton truck pulling a water pump in CT.

    These threads get off the point quickly. CDL rules come from a weight rating not what the load weighs. So again doesn’t matter if you are hauling absolutely nothing for no money or getting paid to haul a load. It all comes down to whether you get pulled over by a LEO. Or in other words...

    I have 2 Zf‘s behind hemis. A hp70 in a 5.7 and a hp75 in a 6.4. They work well. 91k on the hp70. Lifetime lube is BS, and the swap is costly. But overall better than the rFe trannies. I have a 68rFE in my 2016 6.7. So far so good. I didn’t go asin since it was the 1st or 2nd year...

    What do you drive for a truck?

    Everybody has an opinion on trucks. My crappy dodge 5.9 truck from 2000 has 350k miles. Original seats etc, looks brand new and everything still works. Replaced the radio so I could have hands free, but still have the original Cd/tape head unit to put back if I want to.
  35. stumblinhorse

    Pulled over for a one-ton truck pulling a water pump in CT.

    I agree with misinformation. Because CDL requirements have to do with ratings. They have nothing to do with what you are hauling. So if you are hauling a single hay bail to feed to your rabbit or if you are hauling a billboard that advertises what company you are commercially hauling for...

    Oil Change intervals?

    Again, gone are the days where anything about an oil change is ”cheap”. Oil change on my 20 YO Kubota is about $40 and 20 minutes. My tier 4 CNH is about $400-$600 (on-line vs dealer part costs) and 6-8 hours if you are good at it.

    Question about greasing bearings

    This is one area I go against my normal over do it mentality. Disassembling and greasing is a huge pain. I have way more important maintenance items that I cannot ignore. So my approach is replace when worn and leave them alone. Your mileage may vary(YMMV).

    Oil Change intervals?

    I use synthetic oil in everything because I need the cold weather starts of 0W or 5W. So my 75C requires an oil change every 600 hours. Actually one of the reasons I bought it was low maintenance cost. So I do not change the oil that frequently. Also oil changes are not what they used to be...

    Case IH Warranty claims

    Case seems to have a good program for working with owners. I would go straight to them. For a tractor that new, it should not have been touched for any maintenance. So should have factory fill still in it. The dealer is looking for someone to blame. I would deal with CNH directly.

    Gooseneck all the way. They handle the load better, they are not as picky about tongue with the load forward or back, you can be close not perfect like a bumperpull. I see 14k bumper pulls and cringe at the loads being too far forward or back. If you are gonna haul 10k, get a gooseneck.

    This won’t happen for a while since there is so much other food for them. But wolves are not conservationists.

    Colorado wolf reintroduction

    The release of wolves in Colorado is simply the next step of the governor and his animal activist husband’s war on agriculture and hunting in the state. But it doesn’t matter now. There is now nothing that can be done. Wolves are here and there is nothing capable of stopping the explosion of...

    Jeep announced 5000 pound capacity for 2024 for the auto 3.6 and 2.0t motor and produced some marketing material with that number. But then printed all the specs that came with the vehicles with 3500. It is causing an uproar and someone will probably sue.
