Re: Spreading Manure
Dumping the bucket. Nice actionshot.
The manure was piled up in June and ready to spread in
Re: Spreading Manure
The John Deere Loader. Very good capacity for its size. And
a lot of fun to drive.

He did it again!
Re: Spreading Manure
Last one.
Ready to go. We had to haul quite some distance (4km) so
loaded it right up. The spreader didn't seem to mind. It
worked pretty good besides being to small.
Re: Spreading Manure
Martin, where abouts in Alberta? Why do you have a
different flag? I have seen a farm nearby that looks the
same, has the same type of loader and spreader, but I have
not seen a NH there...what model is the tractor? And
loader(both FEL and Crawler)? How old was the
operator(crawler loader)? We have a Cat 931(similar age)
that we use for our brush and manure. See post 225044. I
don't mean to be rude but, I don't really like the deere
track loaders like yours. They look great but they seem so
much more complicated to operate than ours(I love pedal
steering). Are you happy with it? We were looking at one
like yours when we bought ours but the guy had sold it the
day before. So we got the Cat and we love it, they are so
versatile(crawler loaders in general) and even though it's
so small it can out-lift all the tractors we have without
even groaning. Plus, you can't get them stuck! My only
complaint is that they only have one reverse gear(a real
pain for back-blading).


P.S. You really should look at downsizing that spreader! ;-)
How happy were your neighbors that you were speading on the
road(it was so heaped)? :-D

Hi Josh

The farm is located 45 min east of Edmonton. The next little
town is Lamont. My flag is german, since I am german and
only went over to Canada for the summer. Hired for harvest I
did lots of other things because of that late harvest this
The NH was a 8670. The JD i wouldn't know. Nor do I know the
year they were made. But the JD seemed to have had its best
days. That's why we used this JD 7210 a lot.
About operating the dozer I don't really know which is
better, I only drove this one. But for someone only knowing
tractors and trucks it's good fun to drive a tracked
Where are you from? I read about your family situation in
some other post. Not very nice. But once you grow up you
will know everything about farming at a really early age. So
don't worry to much. You'll be alright.
Take care Martin
