Finished with yellow peas but spring wheat isn't ripe yet. Perfect time to work on our bin site and make the final preparations for electricity. Also decided it was a great time to mount those Westeel hoppers on their new concrete slab.

  • A little late now but you should've kept the skid on until yoy got to the pad. Would've kept it more ridgid for the move.

    • @E DieselDad sorry i shouldn't have replied like that, you have a good point and I agree it definitely would have helped keep it rigid. It's been a long day, little edgy I guess, thanks for watching and commenting!

    • @Welker Farms Just an opinion! Keep it up! You guys and that Millennial guy make me want to have a farm!

    • I disagree, it was more than strong enough how we did it and as you see they are in place and secure.

  • BTW I Can't get Notifications after the middle of August because Google stopped sending notification Emails even though you have the channel set up to receive notifications.. Refer to this Google note in quotes below.. Many folks are wondering what happened to their automatic notifications. "USworlds has a few different methods of notifying you about new videos from specific channels, including push notifications on the mobile apps, alerts on the desktop site, and email. However, the last option is going away, as Google alleges email alerts aren't used very often." Please pass this on to your USworlds Application as I found out I lost all notification Emails for all of my subscribed USworlds channels. BTW I really like your videos as I am a retired farmer and enjoy watching today's farmers operate.

  • You should billed a solar station out there and billed it out too three phase. Three phase is common technology for solar the inverters electronically connect in a group off three for three phases and your battery back up can be changed by standard phase and thin converted to three phase in a bind at night if you run out of battery back up.

    • @Gregory won't to remember that thay only need to billed a sistom that runs the max off what thay use at any one time. That can be done easy with dual breakers.

  • Please include the "School Lunch Program" in your videos with reference to the damage sufferred by Iowa from the recent Derecho in their state. I am sure that that program is probably critical to their and your survival. Since the libs are doing their best to derail this critical program it seems to me that a little gentle reminder to your audience wouldn't hurt. Thanks!

  • I see the door is in the wrong place on the third bin. they should be beside the load out augur so the grain is drawn away from them to you have access to the bin while running the sweep without having to climb in from the top. you will learn the hard way on this one.

    Daniel HillerDaniel Hiller3 months ago
    • The sweep will auger towards the door within a short time. If needed we have access port at the door for our vac

    gacikplgacikpl3 months ago
    • @Welker Farms it's crazy. I was digging the electric line into the barn across the yard and threw in there a cable three times thicker than required and two ethernet cables, now I wish I had given some conduit and fiber. The cost of this wiring was very small compared to the time, hassle and cost of excavation, so I preferred to protect myself for doing it again.

      gacikplgacikpl3 months ago
    • It is about 4-5 times the cost believe it or not!

      GregoryGregory3 months ago
    • it might be set up for the wrong voltage, or there maybe something wrong with the voltage regulator........ no telling. If they really wanted to know they'd be smart to call a generator company with good reviews.

  • Hi guys. Could you give us some details on the GPS setup you have in the combines? For example, how does it know the shape of your field. Do you set that up manually before the first use. Does the combine do 1 or 2 turns around the outer perimeter before parallel runs? It is a great use of GPS, but I would like to know more. Thanks.

    Bruce KerrBruce Kerr3 months ago
