Harvest 2017 rolls on...for the most part. Today we had a Major combine break down with our John Deere 9870. We also filled our 2nd grain bag while we dealt with the snow, freezing temps, and mud.

I’m 36 trapped in a 46y/o body. I feel your struggle man, being a farmer makes us age horribly. Must be all the dust we have to work in😂

I wonder when he stopped bagging grain? When I was farming running grain cart I was dumping into bags. Its exactly what Zach said. The bagger unload equipment will work like a charm, IF that bag is perfectly straight, not overfilled or under filled. Basically you had better hope you filled it right on the money. Because its hell if not !

@Becky Watt yeah, I know it's common. The one I saw didn't have duals. But just broke off right where it pivots in the middle.

joyfilters VFD’s cuts costs on the run , not just on startup, but there is a point where installation cost vs savings make it less sense. The larger the motor the better usually

Oh the joys of farming. I farmed with my family for 27 years of my life. Just north of you up here in Manitoba. Back in '97 it was so wet the grain carts couldn't even get in the fields. I drove the combine up on the side of the ditch and was dumping in a truck that was parked on the side of a road. When I backed up I mistakenly backed the rear tire into a culvert and ripped off the entire axle. Same deal. Crippled in a ditch full with 4 ft of water. What I've learned is that if you can survive grain farming you can survive any other occupation with ease.

Alex Veldhuis
Alex Veldhuis Yil oldin
This statement is really a rather oversimplified and somewhat incorrect way of stating the real issue. Both producers and consumers are dependant on market prices. It is the guys in between who all want their cut. Right now there may well be a change in what consumers demand, but sometimes such changes are initiated by those involved in the food business, whom in turn have a say in what farmers should be growing. That is the kind of control/power at their fingertips. So, as a grower, their frustrations are misdirected if they feel the need to react to consumers complaints. One either acknowledges their grievances and ensure that their points are responded to, by way of dismissing that which is factually incorrect and explaining why various choices are made, or one can dismiss the complaints outright, since the consumers grief is related to the marketing and pricing of product, which invariably are issues outside of the producer's control..A big part of the problem lies in the huge disconnect between producer and consumer, where we have gone from an agrarian economy society, to what we have today where a large service sector exists and there is even a noticeable chasm between the producer and consumer in an 'us and them' kind of way. Now, I don't know where and how it started, but you see, your line up there isn't helping matters. There are no complaining consumers here, so what is your actual issue?

I can’t even count the times something like that has happened. The only thing you can do is grab the jacks, some wrenches, and a couple of spot lights and go to it. The fact that no one was injured is the important part. There are lots full of combines.

donnaandrob123 Yil oldin
Basic problem is the axle may look broken ! but a fatigue in bolts "U" bolts what ever is maybe the issue. Being from the UK can also say following your farm and subscribed, love what you's guy's do and are up against along the way. But something is always going to become against your side, Damage and cost is stupid considering the bolts alone only cost coppers $$$, being a commercial mechanic over they years on Trucks and busses, maybe it best to keep older equip on what we called a TRIA annual, every three years strip the beast down and other machinery as much as you can and get rid of these unfortunate happenings that would cost you a days work and expenses from them John Deere guy's. Air bags and springs bolts and nuts were exchanged and replaced as ness to keep old and loved machinery going. PS: love all the vids and the latest with Welker was also a great vid from both sides, watched them both and wish you all the very best with future harvests. Between you and Welker are the only Farmers in op I actually watch. Nice job guy's

I remember back in the day, we ran 7720. In three different instances managed to break each of the final drives. Than one evening our hired man was pulling out of a field cranked the wheel sharp and dropped the rear axle off a 5 foot culvert snapping it in two in the middle of the road. That was a long night getting that out of the road.

How good do the two boards work for closing the end of the bag? I was thinking of using one board and just rolling it up vs what we do now (grab end of bag and twist) but that looks even better. Might have to steal that idea :) ALSO, do you do the same thing on the other end of the bag or just twist and tuck the start end? I have been considering doing the board(s) on the start end as well but was concerned about it holding together. EDIT - Found the unloading video, yes you guys do use boards for the start. Thats a very good setup, i'm going to start doing that for sure now! :)

I am seriously underwhelmed by Green any more and ha e unloaded myself from all their gear by now with the exception of two of their riding lawn mowers. I've gone completely over to Case/IH and the "ownability" factor is reason #1. But c'mon! Breaking the spindle bolts is wrong on all levels. Bad metallurgy? Chinese steel? Undersized? Bad engineering? Bad John Deere! More than likely.....
