It's safe to say some people wasted a lifetime of summers picking stones by hand around here. The first farm quarter I bought has a 20 acre field on it. Previous owner told me his grandfather was given the quarter for service in WW1. There's 3 piles 6-8' high with a footprint of a fair sized house on the edge of that field.Here we have picked them up our whole life. Bedded a few roads with them.
A bit of trivia. Around here some areas have stones and some don't. Talking to another old timer who said he heard from his grandmother when they homesteaded etc. they looked for areas with stones, Stones were necessary for foundations, chimneys, cellars etc. Times have changed. We were to the Ayran Islands a few years ago. Yes you can have too much of a good thing. farmguy
Love the Fendt. There's very few around here besides the ones the custom chopping guys bring through. I was lucky enough to find mine this winter well used from a grain operation where it had a gentle life. Decided to buy a little older with more hours in order to get a (hopefully) superior tractor. Fast, good on fuel and nothing to speak of going wrong so far. The Vario trans takes a few minutes to get used to but once I got on to it I wouldn't want anything else. Hopefully I have 7 or 8 years to scheme a way to buy.another.Nice roller and tractor. Leaves a nice seed bed and looks like a great field to work in. Not many Fendts running around here.
