  1. I was expecting something different. Anyway... Later, William
  2. My guess is that, that is the mayor's son. The judge will decide to settle the matter at the dirt track on the weekend. Later, William
  3. In Ontario, we have a plethora of fuel regulations. You need a fairly large farm operation to justify meeting all of the fuel storage regulations. This has curtailed truckers running farm diesel to some extent. The vast majority of MoT inspections are performed on divided provincial highways, which are not open to farm machinery. Anyway, the things farmers get caught out on around here are bad tires, no SMV sign, lack of safety chains and improperly secured loads. Also, the occasional abandonment of common sense.
  4. If an image hosting site is free, it is either bad or will be in the not too distant future. Over the last two decades every "super awesome" free site has gone down in flames. I've relied on web hosting sites. If you can justify a moderate fee, you can dump your photos onto the server and organize your directories any way you wish. It isn't the cheapest solution, but it has worked well for me over the long term. Quality hosting services will provide a means for auto backups, have high percentage up-time and reasonable load times. Later, William
  5. I looked at the CWC (Silvermans?) site earlier today. The price tags on these new watches sting like what I suspect a Christmas tree might, heading the wrong way up ones fundament. I suppose there are no actual new/real military watches anymore. This situation certainly appears to have ended that affordable tool watch niche CWC used to occupy. Later, William
  6. The proper way to break a tractor in half requires a mostly stock mid 60s Farmall 1206. These were the first factory turbocharged tractors manufactured. Re: Road operation in the U.K. From what I've seen on YouTube, as long as you have a number plate and original safety equipment (on old machines that consists of rear brakes), you are good to go. Here in Ontario Canada, we have a magical thing called an SMV sign. I can drive a tractor on any combination of the road and shoulder I please, pulling almost all manner of things, as long as I have an orange triangle and don't exceed 25 MPH. Oh, if it is past sunset, I must have two front lights and one rear marker light. Kind of a drag. Later, William
  7. I've had the rotary cutter for a couple of years now, Roger. I picked up the tractor a year ago, and have been repairing it ever since. Later, William
  8. Well, aside from becoming more decrepit, I have been well. Later, William Thank you gentlemen. Things have been fine. I don't seem to get much done, it just feels like I'm busy. Later, William
  9. Roger's situation has slowed this thread a bit, so here I am cutting the front yard back sometime during July: Later, William
  10. This afternoon in a car-park adjacent to nowhere. As ebullient as always. Testing a new smartphone. Later, William
  11. Here is another pointless Dexta vid: At the 3:00 minute mark you can see it hop up while pulverizing a large pile of sh!t. Later, William

    Just for the hell of it, you could do a reformat of the card. Later, William

  20. Krypto currency: There two drawbacks to crypto currency. The first being the absence of government protection and regulation, and insurance of investment. The thin air banking institutions seem to get hacked too frequently. The second drawback is mining. Mining is no more, or less, legal than crypto currency itself and devalues it. There are literally millions of computers operating 24/7 in China, doing nothing but generating viable currency that undermines the actual cash investments that back the crypto. Short answer: Buy low, sell high and move like the wind. Later, William
  21. Citizen Challenge Timer, cal.8110a 23 jewels. June 1980. Later, William
  22. Very interesting. Over here in N.A., those remotes would likely be used for a grapple, such as a rock rake or root rake. They are super handy for gathering large stones, logs, brush and so forth. As for the steering, we had that on a couple of models of cars at the end of the 80s. The idea was when the wheels turned in the opposite direction it would be good for high speed turning, and the parallelogram mode would be good for high speed lane changes. It scared everybody that purchased them sh!tless at 60 M.P.H. The idea was abandoned a year later. Seems much more practical on a low speed piece of equipment. Any maintenance issues with the profusion of hydraulics on the Ryetec? Later, William
  23. I settled on Politeness Man! Wise words. Later, William
  24. It is rather wet in some areas at my farm as well. After posting that video, I tried to move a wagon load of hay and buried the tractor in about a minute. I had to lift the front end up with the loader and place planks crossways under the front wheels. It was a prolonged 900 point turn, stopping to lift the frontend and shift the planks until I was at a right angle from where I started. Needless to say, the trailer I really needed to move isn't going anywhere for a few days. I would like to get a flail mower to deal with all of the softwood trees that pop around my place, but that will have to wait... considering they cost more than I paid for the tractor. That Ryetec must need a lot of ballast with that sort of extension. Later, William
  25. Camera phone pics??? OK... Later, William
