Yep, after forgeting to scrape the snow off the roof of my tractor shed, the rain today overloaded the main beam and caused the rear panels to fall in. Now the back row of tractors has a covering of snow and rain. However, the beam did not come all the way down, and did not cause any equipment damage. And now for the pics-

Sorry to hear of your problems. You folks up that way have sure had more than your share of bad weather. I'm glad to see that your tractors weren't damaged. Keep us updated on your progress.

Sorry for the damage, but it's good nothing was crushed by that beam.

Glad no one or nothing was hurt. Sorry to see they have to weather it, but they are tough... they 'll be ok.

Hope the repair is simple.

When you are able to repair your roof, you really need to add a post in the center of that busted beam. That's too long a span without a post.

Thanks, and yes, its getting a post. i think what we will do is scrape the last of the snow off, jack up the beam, and bolt some steel plates to the sides. Then add a post with a wide base in the middle. That way it cant sink into the mud, and it holds the roof up.

Thanks, no one was out when it fell. It was fine this morning when i took the plow tractor out to push the fresh stuff before the rain hit. So it must have come down within the 2 hours or so between when i parked the tractor again, and when Ben looked out the window and saw it.

Better get them Masseys out of there, it's alright though if you park any Bolens or the John Deeres in there. Hate to see one of the red ones get damaged :D :poke: :ass:


On a serious note I am glad no persons or equipment were injured in the making of the roof collapse.

That is so true.A Bolens would just shake it's fenders off and go on. Now those red ones are already tring to find a place to go and hide.:poke::laughingteeth::laughingteeth:
