Its farm tractors today, your electric hybrid truck tomorrow. Some of the taxation in a post gasoline no fuel tax for roads world, is suggested to be based upon data tracking of your car computer with a per mile assessment. This isn't so differrent than fuel apportioned taxes semi already have to pay. I avoid apportionment licenses, so others best chime in with how it goes. Can we petition to repair our own stuff? Can we do whatever we please on non road race vehicles? The needvyo find a affordable tractor right now is forcing me to bid way too high on a slightly used less than 10 year old machine. Apparentky from the hyper aggressive bidding on machines prior to this 2015 foolishness, is exactly because of this power grab by big rich green paint company.

What size tractor do you need?

I want around 125 to 140 HP MFWD, but its very hard to find one in this market. Trying to find around 4000 hrs, maybe 20 to 30 years old. They are out there, but get bid high. Lot of pressure on the used fleet because the new fleet mandates dealer support (computer) and you have the DEF liquid, etc... HP also drops as you go into tier 4, or translate, torque at wheel drops at same rated HP as before.

What type of work will it do? Late model emissions standards have driven up the price of pre-emissions diesel pickup trucks, so I understand your dilemma.

plow, finish dress, plant, scraper box, pull grain wagon, batwing mower. Can't go down below 100 HP, and do much of that. I notice how farmers have gotten really huge, even if their operstions don't demand 500 HP equipment, they often are sizing equipment to couple thousand acre size farms. I'd be happy with their hand me downs, if I could swing the money.
05/02/2021 14:59

Do you do all that farming yourself? What acreage? What current tractor?

I did zero till now. Change happens. My business is in path of a 4 lane highway. The govt took all my parking lot. They are very unjust, screw property owner. I got screwed royally,,so if I can do it, that farm will be site for new building. First, need used equipment to manage the acreage. Big money and I do things conservatively so I may struggle to achieve the new site plans. Crops not my immediate goal. Property development and preventing the poison ivy and black locusts from ruining the field are this years goal. Really don't like quadruple cost lumber, hard to build, or even plan.
05/02/2021 23:24
ASHLEY P
Sir, I concur with hating lumber cost. Consider ICF construction. Super insulated, quick to build, and really cuts down on wood use. Also, beware trying to invest in all the stuff to maintain property vs hiring somebody to mow a few times a year. If you think you're conservative.... :^) I payed off my farm last year. 15 year mortgage, drove junkers to work, and used my "twin turbo Pontiac" bank account for the down payment.

move on dude. He fixed covid if you were smart enough to breathe. He is fixing the economy if the laggards will just let him. FWIW, drove Utah and NW Colorado, saw much much gas infrastructure and drillers lot, empty, no work being done. If you can't do work on gas rights you already possess in a $4.25 fuel market {out in Wyoming), I think you aren't trying. Even Biden gets we can't just flip the switch on gasoline, natural gas, and just cough up hydrogen solutions over night. So how about we try and fix some of our paramount issues like these weather caused natural disasters which have so much to do with the planets deforestation and the lack of thermals those dense rainforests produced. We have scienced out the issues, we just need to be intelligent enough and man enough to face the facts.

Biden fixed Covid? Prove that claim..... LOL Covid is still going pretty strong, masks are a joke to it. Yet the socialists still want kids in masks...ya can't fix stupid.

A President can take the lead. He can't make people act. I can't make you remove your underwear because you are a no interference in my personal rights freak. So people are going to act stubbornly because that is all they know. WIth all due respect, Trump led on Covid too. He backed the research, incentivized the best in Pharma to develop and expedited the drugs and waived all liabilities to those doing the research to give us a chance at a fast response. I put the blame on national endorsement of the vaccine on the naysayers who think life is all about them, who believe in their hearts they are the epicenter of all creation and at least this planet. Has any one of them contemplated that every single second, they are putting foreign substances into their body. They breathe second hand farts, smoke, particulate polluted air, and viruses. They do it all day long. But soon as you start talking about the jab, its all about fetuseses, research, chips from a O.S. designer of the 1980s. MORONS. Enuf said. Can't fix stupid. Ever hear that before?

You should be planning on getting Covid. Not if, but when. So lacking the vaccine, it goes like this, you end up in a hospital when your white blood cells can't compete with the virus which slams the body's defense systems. If you had the vaccine at least 10 weeks back (the second dose), you have a bit of immune response built up and are prepared to get pretty sick but not require hospital care. This is fact based. My own brother, a MD who got his Phizer back in likely Dec. did get covid in the past 3 or 4 weeks. I asked him how it went, he was down a couple weeks. He had a very rough few days at the beginning. It really knocks you down hard. His wife had the Moderna, and her situation as a Physical Therapist may not have gotten her first round vaccine. Not sure. EIther way, they qualified in the early 2022 pool on their ages. The general population weren't eligible till April 1, which is the day I got mine. I had a couple symptoms back in March 20. I wouldn't call them severe. No one did testing for months, and each time my wife tested, it was negative (she qualified as a hospital employee). I fully expect to catch Covid now, because this has swept 98% of all counties in the U.S. and is around 10,000 times more transmissable (goes to your comment about masks being pointless). I take a lot of effort avoiding the problem places, don't go into stores, use the gas station pump to authorized when I get fuel. Masks are on if the outbreak is surging. I traveled and we took pains around the crowd heading to Sturgis because they are imbeciles. None matters, were gonna get it. Some of us will just get sick and be fine in 2 weeks. Other's, well lets just prove what Darwin researched.

are you questioning Trumps first steps? Why did he sabotage the medical research response with his quackery medicine alternatives? Then when he took the vaccine mid December 2020, why did he keep it a closely gaurded secret? His poor record on this war against covid has cost hundreds of thousands of lives. We are the U.S. We lead by stabile intelligent decisions. That has not been his legacy. It is one of bouncing off the walls of the pinball machine.

Looks like Trump and Biden got the case for Afghanistan way wrong. And you argue he isn't stable. Doing exactly the same thing as GW Bush, Obama, Trump, and now Biden. You can talk till the cows come home, but if you study the course of American history with respect to Repub vs Dem President, you always, ALWAYS find the continuity in our foreign policy. And this time, just like North Korea, and Vietnam, and Rwanda, and Iraq, we GOT IT WRONG. Can we agree that you can't fix stupid. Maybe we don't need CIA running out military campaigns whatsoerver. The FFF it up every single time and put us in a far worse place. where is Osama Bin Laden's DNA? I want proof we took him out. There is a powerful case for him dying of natural causes from his ailment, think it was diabetes or other similar routine killer. And where is the Seal Team 6 victim? Why did 30 of them have to die on a Chinook and why was there a screaming arguement over the airwaves that night when observer fighter jet above was denied permission to take out the suspect on the ground. Or was it the insider Afghan enemy who infiltrated our troops, and there were two of them on that Chinook. Facts. How about talking about something important for a change you whiner? Bigger issues by far than my wife's personal life, and your meddling in a woman's absolute and constitutionally guaranteed right to charter her own path apart from a controlling manipulative man's desires. Try reading the actual constitution, not you white hate manual.

I think I met you several weeks ago in the interstate. I'd stopped at the KY rest area on my way into KY from TN. A traveler inside was looking at maps, and asked me in a chuckling manner why it was that every map was of KY, and none of TN. I pondered for a few thousandths of a second and said "maybe because this side of the interstate just left TN and is now KY?" That was you, wasn't it?

It wouldn't kill you to actually respect government including Office of the Presidfnt. Even DJT deserves respect, he did have good intentions through some of his plank. Biden is TRYING to steer a pretty divided screwed up boat badly storm battered. Mockery is lying. LYING. The hall if Presidents video is very easy to find. I would say on a positive that my visit to Thomas Jefferson's plantation, Monticello, was a historical highlight for me. You cannot understand our founding fathers, how Jefferson was influenced, and where from (France many trips), and how his close by neighbor George Washington was a cohort in so much of Jeffersons direction and political development.

Are you not a part of the lying right media? Non stop disparage,mock his obset of dementia (theoretical, not substantiated). We have the hardest decade of our nation ahead of us. Don't think we get through it divided. In case you sre oblivius, climate change has established its effect cut big time. You don't live in the greenbelt where I do and not see it every hour. Spotty crops, yields on average 30 to 50% down (USDA reports by Novenber will confirm). Is there a crop you count on? Beer, it's wheat, barley, hops. Their climate zones were devastated. Almond milk? Sorry, California cut up and burned their dead groves. Wasn't any irrigation water and they drink a ton. Water alone is going to force a massive inner 48 states migration. There is no border patrol for that radical change.

Right to Repair In my state, a diesel tune shop got sued for chipping and producing excessive Nitrous Oxide byproducts which is what is commonly known as rolling coal. This was new, like past few weeks. Nearby me is a diesel shop in much less regulated Illinois, due to their basic inability to get squat done in ass backwards state. It's where all our locals get their chip work done and we have a lot of the Trump Coal rollers around here. Have no clue why they all align that way, but they aren't a deep thinking bunch. Ask any of them how their wages improved under Trump, you guaranteed will get a vacant stare back. What Got Nothing red boy?

Study logic. Then use logic. To say others "aren't a deep thinking bunch" is pretty neat when you claim to not lie, to lie, to make truth.....you sound like the President. That's not good, at all.
