Peter is all John deere, Allen is all Ford, this should appeal to both worlds.
Pete's 57 chevy at the bottem of the hill, it is my favoret to drive, 2 speed rear axle and the Stovebuilt 6 cylinder is dependable and good on gas compared to the red chevy's 400 big block and troublesome 2 barrel carb.

Allen's done, the 2640's put up and the next day i helped put up hay for Allen in his barn.
1,220 bale between both farms in one day and that was just first cutting, many more followed.
Hope this bring's back good memorys for you guys, we still do it every year.

Pete's father built the drag in the 70's, has always worked good.
I would of gotten more Ford Pic's but Allen has the kicker on the Hesston baler so only on guy was needed more or less, he bales very fast with the high speed baler.
No MF around here, sorry :(

Thanks for sharing the pics Jesse! I used to help the neighbor bale hay. No kicker, all picked up off the ground and thrown onto the trailer, stacked by hand then stacked in the barn. He passed away several years ago (still miss him) and his wife leases the land to a local tree farmer.

That was the only kind of baling I was involved in during my brief farming experience. Daniel is right, thats good old hard, hot, dirty work, thanks for the pictures.
