Even my tractors are growing!
Posted September 23, 2016 - 08:12 AM
So I bought a bigger tractor.. 97 hp tractor..Got me a good deal on a David Brown Case 1594. This should run my 8'brush hog just fine. Also need to find me a round baler that will do balage as it is too late to make small sqares now cant get the stuff dry enough for safe bales..
Anyways, this should make a decent field tractor as it has a cab and a/c that blows cold best part is how quite it is and NO COMPUTERS!!!!

When I was bailing a lot of small squares for horse people I run the moisture meter on the baler as well as prior checking. I also run a preservative on the baler when I thought it might need it. Meter checked the bail that was being made and could turn the preservative on & off with a switch. Made a lot of 16% hay and never had a problem. There were times I would bale late evening to keep the leaves on, like from 8 to 11pm. When the tires started to come up damp it was time to quit.

And olddeeres you are correct.. your 4040 is a beast.. too long and too heavy for my fields.
Never cared much for the green ones because i grew up on red and blue. Red being David Brown and blue Fords.. doing a heads up comparison ;ford 800 to a DB 950...Id take the DB every single time!! And I did..the 1020 deere was about the most worthless tractor i ever sat on that we tried to use, powerless, trouble at every field.. and it wasnt just one thing.. it was always something different.. and when the same thing happened twice that was it.. no more green ones. My best friend was deere washed.. he broke 3 tractors and a crawler in half and still went back for more.. the pain...he finally saw the light and bought a used DB/Case 1394.

There's a farmer up the road from where I work that has a round baler for sale. Not sure of the make or price. I just saw the for sale sign on it when I was driving by the other day. Stewart
