    Lime Spreader HP

If it is a spreader with a floor chain to take the material back to the spinners , as you unload it takes the...

    Standing Hay Price

    I used to make hay on shares with another farmer , when we sold it he got 1/3 and I got 2/3 , When we made it real nice we both made out , and if we got caught with a shower both of us took the loss , he also furnished a barn to keep it in. If you're keeping the hay for yourself , you could put...

    Zero Turn Lawn Mower

    Two years ago we got a Cub Cadet zero turn with a steering wheel , It's a lot easier to control on hills and slopes . My wife really likes it , we had tried one with lap bars and she didn't care for that at all on our hills . Where I work we got a new Exmark with lap bars and it gets to be...

    j.d. 494 corn planter

    I had a 494A planter years ago , the 494A was a later version of 494 most of the basic parts should be the same . They were good planters in their time , if you don't have a lot to plant and have level ground , it will work fine.There were a lot of them around years ago.

    Tractor question

    I have a 10ft NH discbine , my 80 hp CIH 5120 runs it good but when I put it on my 70 hp IH hydro 86 it always ran warm , it never totally overheated but it ran hotter than normal . As long you 80 hp or more for 10 ft you should be ok . If your discbine is bigger , then you might need more than...

    Width of Stock Trailer?

    Get the wider one , I did , it might not make a lot of difference for loading cattle , but I use it to haul my skid loader , it has a 66in bucket and it wouldn't fit in a 6ft . If you ever need to haul something else in it you won't be as limited to what fits in.

    Tractor Tires & Combine Tires

    My neighbor just replaced all six tires on a Magnum tractor , I not sure what price was but he saved $2000 by getting tires made in China. We'll see in a few years how they hold up .
