    Just ask, Warren will (eventually) reply. No question is stupid.

    I always leave her running while on the truck. I'm quite paranoid about that.

    Is that really true?

    Anyone have any first hand experience blowing a turbo due to going down the road with the pipe open. I just can not see it happening. Where is the air going to go? It goes in the pipe, through the muffler, to the turbo and back into the motor and into a cylinder if an exhaust valve is open. Now how much air is really going to go into the turbo when the cylinder is already full of air/gas to begin with?

    Here we go again.........if the whole capping off the exhaust or you will blow a turbo was true, then you would have a messy and blown out air filter.
    And lets not forget, what about parking your machine with the ass end in a strong wind?????????
    It's not possible people, my brother has been hauling his equipment around since 1998 during all kinds of wind storms and never capped off the pipes, and the oldest machine is 7000+ hours and still going strong.
    I really think someone thought up this myth and spread it all over the interweb and some little jackass kid just keeps repeating it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

    Either way I still cover all my pipes up before I move anything.

    Oh hi there.

    Haven't done this in a while. For some reason got the urge to upload photos. As always comments and questions are welcome.

    Switching the auger pan to the Kernel processor. With the new fork lift this job is much easier and safer.

    Started getting the combine ready for soybeans. Never been able to get the combine ready in August before.

    The first time in my life we have been ready to chop corn silage before the first farmer called to start!
    [​IMG]

    Crary air reel needed some work.
    [​IMG]

    New knife and guards.
    [​IMG]

    First silo at the neighbours. Holy corn borer. The one variety was about 60% lodged!
    [​IMG]

    One of our fields, not the one we intended to put in the silo but because it is normal height and not 6 ft tall we are going to chop it.

    No fun chopping that

    New Holland dealer had a sprayer day. I missed it but was able to take the sprayer out to the salesmans farm and play with it. Very nice machine. Glad I finally got to run one.

    Blue power!

    Getting there. These beans are by far our worst. They didn't nodulate. We spread urea on in July and it seems to have helped.

    Hand shells at 25% moisture. Unheard of for 100 day corn in eastern ontario for september
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Getting ready for cob meal. Only one more ag bag to fill with corn silage
    [​IMG]

    New yield monitor from Trimble installed. This is the moisture sensor

    Whenever we have time we've been working on shelves in the shop

    Parts room is starting to take shape
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Don't think I've ever had the corn head out this early
    [​IMG]

    Definitely never had the corn head on the combine in September
    [​IMG]

    Amazing what one rainy day can accomplish
    [​IMG]

    Apparently if you put duals on this mast will go 4 ft higher! Don't think that is necessary
    [​IMG]

    Ready for cobmeal
    [​IMG]

    I set up the knives on the corn head. Loads of fun!
    [​IMG]

    First load of cobmeal. Never chopped high moisture corn before a killing frost before
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I am more optimistic about our corn yields

    The POS T6020. They were drunk the Friday they built this one

    Thanks for the update Warren. Did you add a second excavator to the fleet?

    Hey Wil, no that one was hired for about four months. Glad it wasn't ours, it fell apart more often than our own one does and with only 2000 hours on it! Still we got a lot stumped this summer with both machines swinging!
