Hess lawns 2015

Took a couple days off and visited my brother in Indiana. He has built a rather large farming operation. Lot of changes from old days. He has 3 trailers and now has a bottleneck unloading into the bins. presently they use air to unload

I believe this is the first time I have replaced rear brake linings in a truck. Big chev only had 42k mile

Maybe because it's only a half ton...my 2500hd trucks have rear disk and usually don't need pads until 80-100k miles

This one was making a little noise and rear pad was just about to wear through. I have got to get into our two 2500hd diesels. But next on list is darn trailer brakes. My goal is to get all those done in next two weeks.
