My quad thread got me thinking

Test
Nov 29, 2020 | 05:13 1 Getting harder to throw the ole leg over things.

Age buggered hips knees etc.

Got me thinking I’m a 63 vintage reckon I’m one of the ole farts on here.

Average ade on agriville mid 40s even low I reckon.

Blaithin the young exuberant one early 20s.

Betcha no one wants to show there age.

I know sask3 and I are same year so we’re the elder statesmen Reply With Quote
Nov 29, 2020 | 06:56 2 Me and a few others older.
I have an old HD that I haven't rode for a few years cause my hips are shot.
I'm on the list to see the guy that makes the list for replacements.

    Some years ago when I was shopping for a machine, I was impressed by Bombardier's design. It had a nearly-floor depth open space between the front of the seat and the console/engine compartment. Reply With Quote

  • Nov 29, 2020 | 10:20 15 1945 model,so have seen a lot of change in ag,some good some not so much.
    I was ridiculed in a previous thread for mentioning 50bu bly in pickup,well that was common then, hell if you had a 1 ton you were a big farmer,mabey 3 .quarters,few cows, ran strs to 3 and 4 yr old, and pigs (mortgage lifters) roads were poor so when wet you stayed home,couldnt use lantern because might run out of coaloil before you got to town .
    Pretty self sufficient only bought flour,sugar,few spices and coal oil,the rich had gas lanterns,way better light,must have been more expensive dont know except we didnt have them.
    Any way that was my world now you all have yours. Just remember a good neibour is still better than having that extra land. Reply With Quote

    March of ‘83 was when mom got two for the price of one since my twin brother decided to tag along as well. Funny part is my sister’s husband shares the same day as us.

    Age is just number. I know folks younger than me that act old and whine about every little thing wrong with their body. Most everyone on here seems to be a mover and shaker and that’s the kind of folks to hang around.

    Kinda interesting to find out a bit of everyone’s backstory Reply With Quote

    Nov 29, 2020 | 10:44 19 A good neighbour of ours who passed away a couple years back shortly after his 87th birthday worked like a man half his age right up to the time of his death. He was often a source of inspiration to me when he could be heard saying, “ God Damn I wish I was 65 again”. Lol. I like to remember that when I think I’m feeling my own age! Reply With Quote

    My dad was impressed too, so he bought one. He quickly learned its easier to lift your leg over than lift up and through. Reply With Quote
    Nov 29, 2020 | 11:27 22 I am 1959 model came from large family. so learned fast to take it and learn to deal with it What ever it is ! Just to mention some things that I think were big improvements in farming . Airseeders ! High clearance sprayers! Distruction of the cwb! Straight combining! Reply With Quote

He had started a 40 acre wheat field with his new IHC 6 ft combine. He brought us home and he still hadn't finished it. Bought a new ****shutt 110 Sp combine the next year. Reply With Quote

  • fjlip's Avatar Nov 29, 2020 | 12:09 25 1952 also. What a ride, was alive in WET 50's, no roads to get to towns at times. Saw a threshing machine working on this farm. Picking roots on breaking land at 14. Fencing, hand milking, cream cans to the train station, lots of manure, pigs chickens, cows. Good crops and total frozen crap. Heavy hay bales by hand into barn loft or a monster stack. The dust, no masks like everywhere in 2020, the noise and now hearing loss. Square bins, full of wires, dust, mice and steel grain shovels. Changes constantly to get to present time. Never been easier, but none can work forever. Yes 20 years younger will see even more change. Those will see if Ag survives in the highest cost place on earth, with the climate that has always changed. Good stories people.

  • Nov 29, 2020 | 12:50 28 Nifty 50 next summer
    Over half our grain storage was wood bins, used them for many years . Almost never had to worry about heated grain in them . Biggest danger was climbing over and under all the wires lugging the grain drag around .
    Biggest job as a teenager was removing the loft floor of the barn when we moved it for our “new” shop . Pulling 8 in spikes all summer from all that heavy Fir wood ... then saving the nails after . Not much went to waste .
    Had cows , pigs , chickens , mom had a huge garden .
    Still remember the first “big” bins with air floors .. 3850 bus lol .
    Then the first hoppers were the next big step.
    Started combining on a IH 915 , then moved way up into an L3 Gleaner.
    First field job was cultivating with a 275 bidirectional versatile and a 14 ft cultivator
    Thought that was awesome... for about 2 days .
    Filling the old Morris seed rites
    The bourgault 138 air drill and 40ft air seeder was a big deal.
    First big 4wd used was an Allis 305 twin stack with a high / low trans .
    Still have the first case tractor , 9270 .
    That pulls the planter now lol .

    Lots has changed since , we did a very slow transformation compared to many just 10 years younger or 10 years older. Grew up in a very cautious time frame compared to many . Reply With Quote
    Nov 29, 2020 | 13:13 29

    Was a good tractor actually, except the hi low trans was a weak spot
    That ended up out in Sawyfly’s area . Not sure if it’s still going. Reply With Quote
