Started planning how we'd route the hoses so they wouldn't pinch when folding. Was nice to get an idea of what it will look like in the field.




Should take a good bite out of the field each pass!




8200 on its way to Greentech






Wrecked tire from the guy in Alberta on top of the new one he is getting a bill for.


Designed and built a spire to support the hose bundle and hold it above the CCS hopper




Painting


Fixed the blower on the 1990CCS. Still don't know what was wrong, but after taking apart the valve and putting it back together it is working again. Contamination?


New tire installed


Built the hose tower inbetween the hoppers. This will force the hose bundles to take the shape I want in both folded and unfolded positions


Another inch of rain tonight. I don't expect we'll be in the fields before May anymore.

Warren

What happened to the tire on the cart that you had to replace it?

More progress made.

Wanted to find out how sharp it turns. Answer, very!






The whole cart is actually beside the planter. Really strange to see the wheels so sharply turned but the fertilizer hopper facing towards the tractor


To my astonishment I could unfold the planter there without being on the lawn. Don't ask me how close to the fence it is though. HAHA





I hate having to redo things, but sometimes it is necessary. The PVC pipe idea didn't work. It worked well until the Dawn openers were put on. I didn't take into account how far ahead the bolts would sit. They were going to break the pipe. So we welded on some 2*3 square tubing for the hoses and one for the wiring harnesses.




In the last few days we've got the roll tarp installed on this wagon.


The pto pump plumbed and working. The Montag goes but there is something not right with the compressor, Precision is working on it


Seed tender is set up and ready to roll


Box on the front is to hold a pallet of seed or loose bags


Air seeder is ready to go


Long way to go yet but it is getting there. I hope to get all the 24 fert hoses on tomorrow

Went for a spin in the field. I took the 1990CCS up and down the field with the openers in the ground and it didn't actually go that bad if you avoided the muddy spots. LOL. Maybe someone could have got some wheat in but that is about it.


All 24 3004's were tore apart and turned into 3005's. Actually got pretty good at doing it by the 24th one. They are freaking heavy though!


Ready for the rain






We bought a straight truck today. 1992 International 4700. 9k fronts, 18k rears. 8ft wide by 18ft box. Roll up door. 5LL tranny? Is that a thing? Two ranges, 5 gears in each. Runs great, shifts great and anyone with a full G license can drive it. 162000km on it.


In the back we are putting a 1350gal tank for 6-24-6 as well as through some bags of seed in. It will pull our trailer with Yetter seed tender on it.



Hoses are all on. Still need to be organized a bit but our system worked well




Those are so heavy! Look great though




Still have the air dumps to add but this is roughly what each row unit will look like. A lot going on in a small spot!




Out of 1000ft of hose that is all we have left


Going to tidy those hoses up a bit to give another few inches for filling




Still very wet here. Got an inch of rain last night in about 10 minutes, and there is supposed to be another thunderstorm tonight. Seems to be a good clearing coming. Hopefully get rolling by the end of next week full speed.

This story started 3 years ago. In this thread

http://www.toytractortimes.com/messa...d=29975#273929

15ft culvert to widen this driveway


Crawled down into the gully to clean out the bottom


Tight fit, but I got it in...that's what she said. HAHAHAHAHA


Leveled a bit off to climb up on and start swinging blocks


Dug out the soil to the clay




Packed it as I went


Yes I know the track is lose, need to repack the tensioner






20ft wide now. Will be much less terrifying with the combine now. Need one load of gravel and will be able to get semis into the field now to turn around








New hay rack


New hay wagon as well


Going to bale the last field of first cut tomorrow


Warren
