The prices are very good for wheat this year, but the farm is not mine. I just contracted to run the crew and take care of any breakdowns.

Have a safe harvest, I miss running combines. It was relaxing to watch the reel and auger gently feed the wheat into the feeder house. I spent a lot of years in the MF 760 when it was the big bad boy. Than it was the 8820, now the bullet rotor is the grain eating machine around here.
What are you running?

Only the ranch owner, his wife, and I know about it. We did find out that one of the local high school "bad boys" got his truck impounded last week tho, and it hasn't happened again...............

Just chiming in here, we use to have a problem with local kids syphoning gas out of the trucks...until we drained the aux. tanks and filled them with 10 gallons of diesel. They suddenly stopped stealing after that. lol. But now all of our fleet is diesel semi's.
On a different subject have you guys had any problem getting your straw dried down this year for baling? Seems to be a big problem around here this year. To moist to burn decent or bale.

We don't bale our straw at all. We incorporate it back into the soil.

Yesterday was fun...NOT! One of our combine drivers slid off the field into a draw. Then instead of calling me on the radio and asking for help....he tried to drive out. WRONG!!! He wound up getting the damn thing high centered in the ditch! So last night I had to drive the dozer and backhoe 10 miles overland to the site. This morning I got to dig the damn thing out and fix all the broken parts. Here are the pics of the disaster.....
















This was soooo much fun......After I got it repaired another combine had a bearing go out on the main rotor shaft and will take all day tomorrow to get running again. The fun never stops.........
