Hard work ?
Good for you, make you a man.
I run the trucks and wagon, can't sit and bale for no more the an hour before getting impatient and passing it to someone else, me and Pete are the only ones who knows how to run the modle B and 57 Chevy and keep them running, Pete or his brother-inlaw bales.
We keep up on them 3 times a year with oil changes, grease and prevention maintenance with my little brother helping, after each cutting. My little brother stacks and throws, he's a strong worker and ties in the bales tight 5 rows high when it's needed.
My favoret is pushing the wagons into the barn with the pusher (model B ) the barks echo throughout the barn and calms my nerves after chasing the baler for a few hours, i back out knowing it's in and dry with a feeling of relief.
I never really liked the kicker/thrower on the baler unless loading it all loose, kocked me off the wagon a few times when i was not paying attention, Allen does the best he can driving and controling the kicker, the Hesston is a high speed baler (forgot model no) and can be ran in 3 rd gear for 3 rd light cutting.
He has a MF
round baler but never liked it, high maintenance and expensive to run compared to the Hesston.
766 Farmall is a good old work horse, never ran one but still see them working.
