well, we needed the 8130 across the pond the last week so i got the wondeful job of driving it over. aLL two hours lol.



Here's a neighbor. Really nice operation. He has 6 8030's, manly 81's, and 3 7430 premiums.



Here's a RED neighbor's equipment. I didn't drive by his barn, unfortunately. He has, i believe, 3 or 4 305 magnums and a couple 275's. He is also getting two of the reD module builder pickers for next year.



Waiting on a train.



Good 'ole West Texas.



I made it! Here's our decked out 8420.



My ride, the 8130.



One of our 8120's through a nasty cab window.



And another.



3 of our 5 planters.



Hauling off an old disk.



a few of our trucks.

We were cleaning out the shop pictured, so thats why all of the equipment was outside. Thanks for looking!

He's south/southeast of Lubbock I think, judging by the pics.

Awesome pics man! That pic of your red neighbor's with all those toolbars is along US 84, I alway's see his place when I drive home from Lubbock.

Thanks for the comments. Yupp, just outside of lubbock is where i live. My dad and grandpa own the gin there off of 84. We have land from tahoka to lubbock to crosbyton. Yeah, the red guy has some nice stuff. Funny though, he bought a 7920 this year. And even though there's not going to be much wheat this year, i'd look for him to be buying a 7010 or so. He just got a brand new brent like last week.

Yessir! we run off of their rtk tower when we're out there. Just about a half a mile from the barn we have out there. Yeah that machine was a beast!!! They ran it until 06 and then traded it for another 60. They're the only people around that can make more modules than us in a day. We made 32 in a day with 2 machines! But we're never pushed that hard since we got the third machine last year.

Quote:I dont understand why you allways use these smal tyres

I assume you're from Europe by your spelling of tires? The reason for the "small" tires (are you talkin' in width?) is to fit in between the rows for cotton, corn, soybeans, etc etc

Whats the yellow thingy for on the front of the 8430? And it looks like the tires are wider then I see. What are they set on for cotton?
