video should be decent if i can get enough footage...if anything i'll wait till next spring and combine it with everything, i ordered the camera through qvc and they cheaped me out on a charger and the proper cables so video might be delayed


its nto too bad, all depends on the field though. There's some fields we havent chiseled in 6-7years and i'd be going about 4mph or power hop would start and i'd have to pull up some and make another pass.

if we're in the ground we chisel every year im runnin 6.5-7mph so it's not too bad. Turn up the radio to 15. flip it to Octane on sirius and just keep drivin.

why only 10? your fields too wet?

their 7" points without moldboards on the shanks (will be on next year), and thats about normal for stalk coverage...if we get 70-80% covered we're happy because the soil finisher handles whats left in the spring pretty easy.


The first busts off eventually, when the bearings went out 2 weeks ago it flexed enough to take the scraper bar assembly off to, somewhere in the field (we looked and couldnt find it...so it'll probably end up in our tire next spring). We dont have any bar assembly layin on hand and we dont have that much to go, otherwise we'd wrap a chain around it and go.
