Big UPGRADES for the BIG BUD

We've used GPS auto-guidance systems for many years on Welker Farms. This typically means an awkward motor mounted over our steering wheel and a mess of electrical cables across the dash. It worked but no where close to the accuracy of integrated systems. Working through our local dealer Torgerson, CASE IH equipped our 600/50 BIG BUD with a PRO 700 monitor and fully integrated auto-steer! It works so well it is almost as if the system was designed for this BUD. Plus...it has AccuTurn!

  • Like Hot Rodding..."MODIFY." Now I can see why Big Island Farmer "George Kawano" has a big shop & why his Stieger runns so good. He had that tractor for over 40 years now. Wonder if my Cousin "Earl Yamamoto" watches your video's. He was the 1st one to combine the way Pineapples are harvested with harvesting cabbages. Being a "Machine Nut" I find modifications like these as fascinating as Superbowl Sunday to the Sports Nut.

  • Couple points. For every action,there is a reaction. #1 older equipment is always built better. But some have become virtually worthless if you get paid for your time. like non ztr lawnmowers ,small tractors for construction and small farms that don't pull equipment. #2 the larger equipment,the more real estate and sense to add on accessories. I had an opportunity to buy an 1957 Ford 801 Jubilee that has been in my family since 1960. No 4wd nor front-end loader made it useless for my needs,so we sold it. The GPS will be much more efficient,but if you use the same track you will have compaction issues.

  • While you’re at it, you might as well replace the head gasket. That thing is burning some serious oil. Keep a case of oil with you, out there in the field, and check the oil regularly.

  • Don't tell Zach this, but I find your videos more interesting and fun to watch. I enjoy Zach and his dad greatly, and getting to see the new machines and tech is fun and all, but YOU guys rock the house in upgrading older machines, recycling used equipment to give it new life. THAT is so cool! And Robert, now that I have your waffle recipe, I hope to create some of my own starter this coming week!

  • I wish our case dealers were this knowledgeable. I mean there is basically nobody who knows the tech side who would be able to retro fit all this new tech into this old equipment. And imagine if we could take our old equipment and pull the newer planters and air seeders. It would be wonderful. Instead we just use old stuff and don’t upgrade anything cause the money output to swap a line of equipment over is expensive but doesn’t seem like our case dealer is up for tech like your guys dealer I wish we had a dealer like yours around.

  • What you are calling a Sector Valve is the incorrect term. It is a Orbital Valve. Sector valve would be just a very generic name for any valve that has the ability to send/meter fluid flow to a desired port. You can technically call a Orbital Valve a DCV as well, but that would be incorrect as well.

  • my dad was an old school mechanic that worked on old school tech (Clark line-skidders, Poclain log unloaders, Case industrial log loaders). he always thought the idea of jamming a BIG engine in a tractor and pulling a BIG plow was really something. I have yet to play on your map in FS19 but am looking forward to it. nobody in northern Saskatchewan (we pronounce it Suh-skatch-awun) has anything close to this kind of power. whats a ballpark figure for how much land you guys farm?

  • You leave all your gear out in the open? We don't get any snow on our cropping land in Au, but just about every machine here is in sheds. BIG sheds. It seems little criminal to see all your machinery and trucks left outside in the weather. Why do you think this is so? Local culture perhaps?

  • Decades ago, farming moved from putting a seed in the ground to finance, futures, options, etc. It now seems farming has added space technology to the equation. Basically, a farmer today is more a finance and technology person than a person who plows, seeds, nurtures, and harvests.

I saw the video of leg arms fighting the big nut (lol) too get it out but otherwise y'all just said they were trying to determine what kind of steel it was, etc..... Did i miss a video portion on that? Or still in progress? Keep up the good work! I'm subbed and love seeing your vids!

  • Have y'all ever considered selling wheat to customers who like to grind their own to make bread for their families... I was just thinking it would be a way you could get paid what it is really worth.. I am seeing 25lbs sell for 25+$.... That's ridiculous when y'all are paid 5$ for a bushel.. I would buy wheat and corn to grind for my own use and I am sure others would purchase it also.Allot of people now grind chic peas also... I have had a hard time lately even purchasing flour.. I have been forced to buy it in 25lb bags to even have it.. I don't understand the shortage... Thanks for putting up the Vid's my Uncle grew Wheat, Soy beans, Corn Milo, Maize, and much more in MS. for years.. I miss the farm and Combining hauling grain for him.. I drove a dump truck for him when I was 12 hauling grain on the farm.. His bins were set up on an auger system but he dumped into a cone type pit ..Thanks Again from Texas...

  • At 20:58, it looks like Big Bud is climbing the wall, until you realize it is the camera angle. Looking forward to seeing how the new technology works with the older equipment. I wonder if those upgrades would work on my old body parts?!?! I could run faster, jump higher, Yippee!!!

  • This video is very timely, we have a CaseIH 9170 that we are doing the same thing to. We have owned it since it was new and just put a transmission in it this past fall, next in the plans are to add the same auto steer and ISO setup you did on the Big Bud and at some point it needs some new paint.
