Yeah, what Ron said. Good looking rake but damn that thing has to be heavy. Clean looking 5M, how many hours? Tough to beat those dozers for what they are, I almost prefer the M's over the N's.

Your about nuts if you like finger tip controls slammin you all day, I'd much rather have a 6N than a M. I do realize they didn't change the 5N to differential steer.

Hi there,

Well my chisel plow turned out to be a great purchase. I'm really glad I got it at an auction last fall. No one wanted it as it is quite frankly too small to get anything substantial done. But I don't want it to work fields, I wanted it to work fencerows and bush. For that it is plenty wide enough.

Really need to put the big tires back on this tractor and space them out again. What a wild ride at 60" centers. T7060 could probably pull at least one twice as wide by how easy this one pulled.











This was the first of what I've cleared this year I've tried to clean up. I don't want to use the excavator for much of this as that is what the dozer was bought for, I tried initially with the dozer to rake up the sticks and roots what were left behind, but that didn't work well. The compacted soil (from tracking over it so many times in the rain clearing) just balled up in front of the rake and the dozer just pushed the roots dirt and all. The chisel on the other hand worked extremely well. Broke though the compaction with ease and brought up all the sticks roots and even a missed stump to the top. I think once the sun and wind dry out the soil the dozer and rake will be easily and quickly be able to gather up the wood and get it off the fenceline in a hurry.

I don't mind FTC on the 5's, but I do love diff steer. I guess I meant I'd prefer the M's for an owner/operator situation, they're relatively cheap and reliable dozers. The N's on the used market still fetch a decent amount.

Hi there,

As promised, the June update is ready much sooner than the May one was.

Here is the link. Please take the time to look around the site and comment on what you have seen. I'm still open for suggestions on how to improve the site. Is there something in particular you'd like to see more of? If so leave a comment. As always, please check out the youtube account and subscribe if you haven't already. Also I'd appreciate you supporting the site through the youtube partnership programs ads. Every click counts.

http://www.cedarlodgefarms.com/june09.html

Here is a taste of what is inside.











Keep checking up on the site for July updates coming soon.

Thanks for the support.

Warren

Yes Ron. It is anhydrous ammonia. (NH3) It is by far the cheapest form of nitrogen fertilizer. The only thing about it is it is rather dangerous stuff.

The material changes form several times. It is stored under 110-125psi in the tank as a liquid. It expands to a gas to flow out of the tank though the hose. It enters a heat exchanger on the toolbar and it changed back to a liquid to be metered, then back into the heat exchanger to turn back into a gas and into the ground it goes. The gas expands rapidly in the soil and clings to the moisture. Here it bonds with the soil particles and is available to the corn.

That is a serious Aphid problem.
