Re: First job of the year.
I've never seen such methode to fill a manure tank, is it going a lot faster like this?
The spreader hangs so high, isn't that innoying when their's wind?
You are stuck a lot I see, hasn't it frozen enough? :-)

Nice tractor! What is the purpose of spraying liquid manure on snow? It will end up in the wrong place, once the snow melts. Don't you have environmental laws to respect.

@aslomp: Is that the problematic tank?

Maybe the steering is not alligned after all? There are 4 axles, and one or two might be dragging when turning under load, and then lug nuts break...

I thaught the word is about a 2 axle tank, but if this is the troubblesome one, look again at the steering...

Not a big fan of the green stuff are ya slomp?? :-P
Nice pics, although I'm curious too as to how effective it is to apply on the snow?

Tom, yes Deere's are very popular around here now, but in the 1970s-1980s there was a huge Massey dealer in the area, it was hard to find a farm without one! But it was shut down and people now have to travel farther for them, personally I haven't seen a single new Massey recently aside from 1 on a dealers lot a few months back. Then again, I live a very sheltered life. But there are still areas where they form the majority. They're getting to be real nice machines, last time I looked at one was in 2001 and I was mortified by them, big improvement since then, but Agco's never been too good in the cab area.

Re: First job of the year.
I know that we had to get a special permit to spread our manure in December last year. It works pretty well to spread on the snow, the manure was warm enough to thaw the ground and we even got it plowed. Spite the fact that there was about 6 inches of snow. Great photos btw. Where about were you spreading that day?

@Steven:This pump can fill this tank in 3 minutes. At the bottom is a propeller to mix the manure. When it gets to windy I put the spash plate at the bottom.
We got a foot of snow at the beginning of winter before the ground froze so there is no frost in the ground.

@Nothing Runs Like A Deere: When your pits are full you have to do something. If you have enough manure storage your not allowed to spread over the snow. All new farms have to have enough storage for nine months. The older farms are not required to make extra storage space unless they want to expand. This customer only has about room for 2 months.

@Bobo: Yes this is the tank. I used it all day without a problem.

@Warren: This was in the Barrhead area.
