Good News Daniel!! Glad to hear they think they can fix you up with the Meds. Hang in there, the heat has let up here some this week, only up in the low 90's with high humidity. 

 

 

Bout the same here Bryan, but it's the payloader heat that's getting to me.  Had to come in for more Gatorade.  Almost finished with "Silage 2013"!  Just a half hour or more longer.  I'll finish packing/surfacing tomorrow.  But I'm waiting till Thursday morning to put on plastic & tires.

Good news.  Did he say why you are still having palpitations?

 

There is nothing they can pinpoint.  Often they cannot find the cause,so then they just treat the symptoms.  I guess I'm shorted out somewhere!  :smilewink:

Do you want any semi tires that are in 2 pieces, only sidewalls? I have some that can be had for free if you want them. Can bring them to plow day.

Daniel, glad to hear nothing serious and hopefully they will get you back to normal rythem without the palpatations.

 

 

Speaking of tires, anyone coming to plow day got any old worn out 38" or so tractor tires? Actually just need one, my niece wants to make a small sand box for her grandson.

I did have one if it's still around, but I think it's an odd size, like 35 or 36.  It may be gone, but I'll see tomorrow.

I'd say you have enough to haul as it is!  Long as you offered though, how many do you have?

And for the best news........drum-roll please........... Silage 2013 is D-U-N-N done!!   :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:

That alone should help me feel better, by not being in that oven of a loader all day.

  We only left enough corn to shell for calf feed, maybe a tad more.  We've been running it close on silage for the last few years, but we will have plenty this time.  We can buy grain, but not silage.

 

And did I mention silage is done?  :thumbs:

I'll have to look and see. We let a road service use a spot on our yard for their tires, they have to pay to have them disposed..

What a wild day so far.  Milked, sawdusted 90 stalls with the mf1655d, Took a check for another load of sawdust to my supplier.  Get back to try to eat a late dinner and my brother comes talking about buying a 27' camper 100 miles away and needing a truck to pull it home.  He's never pulled that large or heavy a load, so I'm not so sure I want to loan him my truck, and I don't have time to pull the camper for him either.  Then phone rings twice while he's here, then my feed truck shows up & the driver comes to the door wanting to know where to put the feed.  So I gotta go take my truck to load the feed into, then finally my brother sees he needs to let me get back to work.  Finally at 1pm I get to eat!  Hope the rest of the day is calm.

Isn't it always good when one huge project is finished - till next year.

 

Maybe you need to look into an AC unit for the loader.

I agree with Uncle Willie, How hard can it be to pull a complete AC unit out of another vehicle and install it in the loader? I no probably a lot easier said then done, But health wise would be a good investment if you no what I mean. A winter project may be. Last year they took all of r little loaders and put aftermarket AC units in them. None of them were the roof type ether, but Ive seen them on loaders as well, but I no they can cost a bit of money. They also glued thin insulating material to the inside of the loaders keeping out the heat or cold. They work vary well. Its something to think about anyway, Not that you haven't already thought about it lol

Maybe I just need to mount one of my Rigmaster APU's out on the engine hood!   I'd have air conditioning, plus AC voltage to run a PC in there too!  22" monitor tucked o the side, oh, and a minifridge!    But seriously, it would be nice, but the engine bay is stuffed, and I don't see anywhere to place an AC pump.  Yes, I've looked, and looked a lot!
