ATIS General Tractor Discussion / Re: Firewood Cutting
« on: March 31, 2018, 11:17:57 PM »
I love the old buzz saws.  Here is my Cub Sawyer mounted on one of my Cubs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HJTFe_PbSk&t=0s&list=PLtp1H4xtbucLmb8p7zUMSUQiVd7kuRn3e&index=1

I have to admit that tilting table on your saw looks to work pretty well. You just needed another guy throwing away the cut blocks so they don't pile up and get in the way.

You might have seen some of my youtube videos of cutting firewood with the old buzz saw powered by the Wisconsin V4 (former Case combine engine).
This one is a little different as I didn't shoot it. My nephew does some video and has his own channel so here we all are at work earlier this winter.

Always nice to view your videos. Just like Lay's potato chips, one is never enough. They just keep reappearing as long as I sit and watch.


Thanks for watching Gene. I have a few more I need to get on youtube. One of these days they might start paying me for them. :-) Cold cold Easter here this time. Near -15F this morning
but at least the sun is shining.

ATIS General Tractor Discussion / Super 90 Massey
« on: March 31, 2018, 01:43:12 AM »
Some video I recorded last September hauling hay with the Super 90 Massey and finally got around to editing and uploading to youtube. If I'm still making hay this year I'll probably use the "new to me"
John Deere 2140 as it is nice to have a tractor with working brakes.

ATIS General Tractor Discussion / Re: Foggy Morning.

Nice picture Ralph. Reminds me of some of my early morning flights.
One morning after I took off from Marysville, Oh flying to Virginia, after
takeoff and turned east the ground fog was thick and could only see
the tops of the power line towers and tops of the tallest trees. The visibility
above the fog was unlimited and had a good flight to Edinburg, Va.
That must be a little exciting if you have to fly down into that fog to land Gene. I was up in it with the drone last May and was surprised to see the sun shining when I got up above the fog. You might have already
it in the video on youtube. https://youtu.be/vg6zjx37_hU 

ATIS General Tractor Discussion / Foggy Morning
« on: March 27, 2018, 09:18:03 PM »
It was a bright sunny and foggy morning here so I took the drone up for a picture and some video. Scared up a few deer that were feeding on the hay bales but I guess they are getting short of feed
with all the fields covered in snow. I took this shot of the old Red River Special threshing machine that sits on the hill in my pasture.

That sounds like one tough tree and I'm glad we don't have to deal with it here. I was going to say its like our carraganna trees but they are soft wood, easy to cut down. Spread like weeds though. They were imported here years ago from Russia I believe . To be a quick growing hedge for the new settlers
farm yards. Once they get tall they tend to break down and branches die off. Takes a lot of maintenance to keep a hedge looking good. Easiest way to clear them, and any trees, is with a big bulldozer. Pile and burn.

ATIS General Tractor Discussion / 730 Case Video
« on: March 25, 2018, 11:23:58 PM »
I shot a video of the 730 Case today. Not at work, just a walk around tour pointing out a few details. Its the one my uncle bought back about 1965. And the one I learned to work summerfallow with in the summer of 1970. We both survived.

Hi Guys. Looks like I made it successfully into the new forum now. I think I have uploaded an avatar of my lawn ornament McCormick. Now maybe a picture too. Got a video of the 730 Case uploading at youtube.

'round the pot-bellied stove / Western Ohio Update
« on: December 14, 2017, 10:21:22 AM »
Sure is quiet here for the past month. That snow from early November has partly melted. Lots of ice patches to slip on. I got some more rusty iron to work on this week. A 53 Merc sedan to match the 52 I've been driving. Its a non runner but if nothing else I've at least saved it from the crushers. The body is better than my 52. Tractor reference: I used the "new to me" John Deere 2140 to unload the car from the trailer.

'round the pot-bellied stove / Winter is Here

November 4 and it looks like winter is here in Sask. Maybe 5 inches of snow overnight. Temp just over 20 degrees and the sun came out so I went for a short drive in the Merc. Good thing harvest is long finished here.

Hi CHarlie
Glad you got that surgery over with and on the mend. Hope it is satisfactory and improved.
Harvest done here although I  have  potatoes to dig. Got myself a new old tractor this week. A 1981 John Deere 2140. Great little Mannheim built 70 hp tractor with a 146 front end loader. It  will be an improvement on the old Massey as  it  has working brakes, pto and steering.

Been a long time since I've seen any activity here but I'll post a link to my latest Gopro + drone video anyway. Harvest done and awesome scenery in beautiful weather. Took a little drive in the Merc down the highway and through the woods to get some great scenery of the autumn leaves. Have to enjoy them while they last because it won't last for long.

No luck at all with the rain here Charlie. We are still working on that first inch yet to fall since spring. Subsoil moisture is all that keeps us going. Not too terrible hot although today was 85 and we had a day or so of 90 which had a visible negative effect on the light hilltops in my crop and others. No hope in sight for rain either. I've tentatively agreed to use one of my Cockhutts for next weekend's threshing demo in town. Not sure how that will work but I guess I'll find out.
Here is another start up video where we got my brother's Massey 444 and Ford 6000 Commander tractor fired up after a long rest. Maybe you have already seen it but for those who haven't

Quote from: Charlie V;2857
Oh good.  This web sight is back up.  Thank you Spencer.  I was worried it might have been hit by an astroid or???
Six and one eighth inches of rain.  Wednesday AM till Friday AM.  PRETTY WET

I never knew the site was down Charlie. Sure am envious of at least some of your rain. I don't think there has been an inch of rain on my yard since the snow left. Crops are surviving  on the subsoil moisture stored up from the past 7 years of floods I guess. Looking not too bad. Mainly due to  the fact we have  not had  the extreme heat like we did in 1988. That year we had a little more rain but a lot  hotter too. Short short crops that year.
Drone pic here of me and the Merc by the back road beside my wheat field on the weekend.
