    I could not believe it when I heard you say “NOTCH JOHNSON”, then I said no way he’s talking about Son Of The Beach! That was awesome. Long time STERN fan here!!
    I’m not a farmer, I don’t even have a garden, just an electrician from southern Maryland. We have a bunch of farm land around us but nothing like what you guys have, pretty cool stuff. GREAT VIDEOS, enjoying watching all you guys do

        So are you going to buy that green Protill hahaa. We have a 20ft protill and its amazing to use cleaning up sloughs, ruts, working grass land up, etc.

          "There is no tool on the market that that you can cover as much ground and do as much residue management in one pass as this tool." Come on, really. They obviously completely ripped off Degelman. Degelman has had this same exact tool for over 5 years. And now John Deere comes out and says they invented it? Same with the RX track systems. John Deere spent 20 years telling people 2 tracks are better than 4 (John Deere even stole the 2 track idea from Caterpillar) and as soon as Case IH's quadtrack patent runs out, John Deere releases the 9rx saying it's groundbreaking technology. I am getting sick of John Deere stealing other companies ideas, calling them their own, and saying they are the only ones on the market with this equipment. They've been doing this for years.

                                  That was a very short demo. They should have let you use it for at least 2 or 3 days. And you should have tested it on some tougher wetter ground to really give it a good test.

                                                                        I have always heard that a bail of cotton or round bail of hay catches fire it will burn inside for a long time.
                                                                        Several years ago I put out round bails of hay. I put hay hoops over the hay so the cows won't hook the hay
                                                                        with their horns and scatter it everywhere.
                                                                        It had been raining so the (run-a-round) where I put out the hay was pretty wet.
                                                                        It took the cows a week or so to eat what they wanted and left the rest a real mess. I pulled the hay hoops away from the round bails or what was left of them and used my front end loader to make about 3 piles of wet soggy hay along with cow poop and all of that and smoothed out the area and put out more fresh hay.
                                                                        I noticed some of the bad hay wasn't very wet so I decided to stick a match to it and burn it up. We did not have any burn bans in the country so the hay started burning and smoking like crazy. It odor was pretty bad.

                                                                        The cows had enough hay for a couple of weeks so I had to leave town on business. When I got back, the cows
                                                                        had finished the hay.
                                                                        They piles of bad hay I had set on fire a couple weeks ago didn't look like they had any more fire in them.
                                                                        I used the front end loader to stir up the burned mess. All of a sudden the smoldering fire inside those piles
                                                                        erupted into fire and the smoking mess was burning again.
                                                                        That's was when It was confirmed about a fire that could keep smoldering in a pile of wet hay could come back to life.

                                                                        • terry vair

It's amazing how things have evolved but yet stayed the same. Our 12' cultipacker and disk cost about $800.

They have old time values like helping their neighbor. They include family(Zack's blessed with a gorgeous family). They all seem to get along great and work as a team.(or am I fantasizing?). They all have great personalities. Lastly, there's not a real millennial among them. At least within social norms and age not withstanding.
