Horse Progress Days 2005 - Draft Animal Power Event

Apr 04, 2024
Hello, I tell you more: welcome to the

2005

Horse Progress Days versus the Horse Progress Days here in Lebanon Pennsylvania. I'll be your guide today as we look at some of the new machinery on the ground. There is a lot of

horse

-drawn machinery being manufactured these

days

. It is very fascinating to see. This is a 25 bushel ground driven lightweight manure spreader, primarily for use by small

horse

breeders, hobby farmers. It can be pulled by a pony with a fork carriage. We pulled it with a garden tractor. We work. We pulled it with a bigger tractor. but it would be a waste, but anyway it is made by the Peck Way Machine company in Newhall in Pennsylvania, it has a lever to start it and a lever to adjust the feed rate to spread more or less manure as needed. you travel through the countryside, the jack is standard on this; they ask you to look at the excellent scattering action on this one.

This is a 25 bushel ground drive manure spreader manufactured by Lancaster Manufacturing and is distributed through Pet Sharpening at Rocks Pennsylvania sales. a top beater that pulverizes the manure and this curved shield shoots the pulverized manure onto these extended paddles and the extended paddle spreads a nice even layer of manure its 25 bushel ground drive again is for a small hobby farmer with two or three horses and that you don't have sheep, something like that, you can take it right to your barn with your garden tractor or you can do it with a single pony, a single horse or a small team, the dealer is here, they have a booth that we really want to talk to. you, this is the original spreader company, they have heavy duty castings on all polychloroprene beater designs, you can get an end gate and if they show them an option for a front ground kit, there is another Lancaster spreader, This one has a capacity of 50 bushels and is all loaded ready to go when it has the same features of the green one we just looked at It has the top beater inside that pulverizes the manure The shield that shoots the manure onto the extended paddles It has a slightly larger capacity its ground drive and is distributed by pet sharp in bug sales pennsylvania again this is a two wheel job so you need a four wheel cart to pull it this is a 35 bushel ground drive spreader made by an easy to use spreader company Sugarcreek Ohio, so they are one of the small spreaders that are favored today, this one has an upper beater and a lower beater to help pulverize the manure and then it feeds back to these paddles which spread it in a wide, even swath behind the machine.

it from rotting because manure is very caustic and will rust the metal and rot, but this polyplastic holds very well made levers here and gets the thing going and this sets the speed of the track and controls the amount of manure spread per acre. All spreaders are tailgate land-drive options. There is a lime attachment, brake bands and a one year warranty. This is a 75 bushel four wheel drive spreader made with easy spreader manufacturing. Sugarcreek Ohio, you can see it has a platform seat and a safety bar for the driver, so you don't need a four-wheeler, just hitch up your rig and go, this lever here sets the speed of the conveyor. and the bottom part and governs how fast you are spreading your load of manure the lever on the other side puts the spreading mechanism it is a running mechanism it has an upper beater a lower beater and then the extended paddles in the back this spreader too It has the polyethylene plastic case to pr

Tracking: This machine is made by H and s manufacturing company, they are out of Wisconsin and this particular one was provided by Their Farm and Turf in Co Incorporated, which is a local farmer. It would be better if they made 25 bushels at their work. a full 660 bushel spreader Now, how many horsepower would it take to calculate that Roberts is full of 660 bushel spreader? It's a 100 bushel model made similar to the smaller ones we looked at before. It has steel sides. Steel case. The top beater. The lower beater. It does not need any takeoff parts to propel it throughout its life.

Very well built with heavy duty rabbit ear bearings. It may have a two-wheel drive model. Here we have six belt speeds. It is available with John Deere green or all red. Below Boise, it will have a two-wheeled, ground-driven spreader from New Hall's Peck Away factory in Pennsylvania. Peck way makes a full line of manure spreaders, most all sizes have the top beater, bottom beater and extended paddles, just like the rest of them, it requires a four car, but it is ground driven, so that does not need power take-off. It has steel wheels. Many Amish farmers prefer steel wheels instead of rubber.
This is the original spreader used on farms across the United States for 30 years. meters design with polyethylene floor, you can get an optional front end and yes, the pick weight is 175 bushels, the PTO drilling rig has a large capacity and requires a four motorized carriage, it has a steel, rubber tires and a simple beater spreader in the back, perhaps by the Peck way machine from Newhall in Pennsylvania, the heaviest point would be here, but when you lift the belts up high and hook it here, these cars make a kind of counterweight and this is not heavy at all here.
I know I use a cart similar to this every day in the woods ears young horses old horses and I have never had neck pain from the log cart or from the weight of the tongue, it's all a matter of fitting the collars properly and keeping the high tongue This is the log cart from Forrest Manufacturing. It has many interesting features. A place to hook your PV or not to hook it, as the case may be. They seem to prefer. They can't get hooked here. That's really nice a lot of times when a log gets tight. the tree or something like that and you can't back up your card and it's really nice to have this VP with you so you can roll the trunk or like it just begs the question, what do you do when you run out of space?
You could take this. I can't hook and roll the logs a little closer, a feature I really like about this cart, we'll have to turn it a little, but there's actually a slot in this PV holder and the PV can't turn, okay, I'll do it. we consider and the PV can't change what can happen with some of these homemade cars that don't have a groove if the PV is here, that point goes right on the tires and a lot of loggers spend a lot of time repairing tires because of that and I'm I'm sure this was trial and error until he figured out a way to not replace so many tires.
A couple of other cool features of the David stroller. He's got a couple of hooks back here to hook his lunch on extra chokers, whatever he wants. I think there is enough room under your feet to put your chainsaw in there or maybe you could even hook it to one of these handles. Quite a comfortable and comfortable seat. It is a pioneer seat with a spring, a protector between you and your equipment and this tongue. removable, that's really nice when you're pulling the cart, a lot of us put the cart in the front of the trailer and the horses in the back so we don't have to make two trips to the logging job and if you take that tongue it just does it much more efficient and if you have a couple of different teams, they had a big Belgian team that weighed a ton and you also had an extreme mediums team, you could use the same team on the same cart just put a slightly shorter tongue in there , a really sturdy hammer right here, that's very important in the woods.
These uniform errors are similar to those used by most horse pullers and are also made by forest manufacturing. This white tree is really nice for big horses, especially these Suffolks with all the muscles. What the single white tree does keeps this pull off the horse's side a little bit, especially you could see some space back here and that keeps the horse from getting hurt a little bit. A single tree will have that pull very close to the horse and when these horses get off and are really dragging the harnesses it can cause pain, but if you use good techniques, good fit, harnesses and collars like Chad has and a good set of bugs pairs, you can really reduce a lot of that and of course the best feature of this log cart is the slotted choker bar and I just remembered I don't want to stay back here because these things fall off, I might get my leg pinched or something like that, you want to get closer to the side when you unhook this choker bar, just step on the head a little bit and you'll see when he passes them, it comes out well unhooked.
Chad will hook that rig right up Farmer Brown's trunk. cart, you can back up until the front of this bow hits the log, he knows he's there, he can hook it hard, and there's usually the right place in the woods to pull the log hard. What are you doing? You kind of run over him. a rock or a high place, the front of that log will be in the air. Nice, drop your car, wheels in a hole and you can lift a lot. Another option too and I think we'll do it right here as we're very embarrassed and this is a great method for dragging large logs.
What can you do? You can clip your chokers at the three and nine o'clock positions with two chokers. I trust these horses a lot. not only with all the equipment, I would stand here and put my hands there while they are still attached to the log, you'll see us. Chad walks away and says that this system, even without a good place to lift it, can really lift a funnel. in front of the trunk and that registers three or four inches anyway, maybe six inches in the front, a lot of cars aren't much use if all you can do is hook up here on the ground and pull straight through the field, the forest , you end up getting a lot of tight spots and weaving a little bit and these combs really simulate that and show how maneuverable a logging card is.
Watch Chad lose a cone right there and if that was a tree and he barked at it on the road, he could have ripped off the bark. on that, off that tree, especially this time of year when it's easy to tear off the bark and that can damage the tree as long as it lives and you can see that he's making the corner good and wide. You also notice that these carts are pulling, there is no tongue sway many carts that are not specifically designed for logging have a lot of tongue sway and that gives you neck pain quickly but these log carts are well balanced and well designed and they require a lot of trial and error, anyone who actually builds a good log car probably built five or maybe ten junkers before finding a good car.
Whitehorse makes this car with a three-point hitch. The carts have the wheels, the frame, the tongue, etc., and it has three. -Point hitch to which any category one three-point implement can be attached. This cylinder raises and lowers the three-point one. It has tongue direction. Hydraulic tongue steering. You can move the frame this way or that way on the tongue by using that hydraulic cylinder, this particular frame is set up to be used with a plow that White Horse also makes, they make this plow with a three point hitch on the bottom and what is unique about this plow is the fact that it has hydraulic reset for each bottom, some plows have safety pins that break when the bottom hits a rock or obstruction, others have a spring hitch that disengages due to to the tractive force, but the white horses come up with this hydraulic reset that is connected to the hydraulic system.
You see the cylinder here and the arm. on the back of the bottom and if this bottom hits a rock or a stump or whatever on the ground, it overcomes the pressure in the hydraulic system and this cylinder, this arm moves inside the cylinder and the bottom rotates back just above clogging and hydraulic power then resets the bottom automatically you don't have to get off and do anything with it it just resets automatically it's a really nice feature and I'm really unique in the old

days

every plow manufacturer made two plows in a group . and lower three sometimes larger than that, but probably in the 1950s they all stopped making group plows and this is the pioneer outfit from Dalton Ohio as they are making the first group plow built in this country since the 1950.
This isa version of it. it's for the right hand, they make it in both hands, in the right hand, in the left hand, they make it in 14 inch bottoms, so I think in 12 or 14 and 16 inch bottoms, it has a platform for the rail For driver safety, this is a lifting lever to lift the bottoms. off the ground has other levers to adjust the plow angle and plow depth has high speed disposable bottom cover boards shares a two way plow made by a White Horse machine from Gap Pennsylvania has a soil driven hydraulic system which is a little different than what we saw in that this hydraulic pump instead of being driven by a growler chain there is a cam on the shaft and it operates this roller and this roller and it operates this plunger which and then this is the plunger pump and this plunger goes in and out and provides the hydraulic power that builds up in this accumulator tank, but this is a specially designed machine that is only used for two-way plowing, of course, it plows in either direction the same way. go down there use the bottom right turn it towards the field release the bottom left you come back in the same furrow this has the hydraulic resets they have the white horses that are perfected if the bottom hits an obstruction it pops the cylinder works it allows The plow returns, jumps over the obstruction and then hydraulic power resets the bottom into position.
These two weight plows are useful for slopes that you want to throw in one direction first. They are useful for small or irregularly shaped fields. I had never seen this one before. It has supports for the reins. Hold the reins. These small weights are on an eccentric. You can slide the reins under them and drop the weight. holds the reins in position that's an accessory I'm not sure if it's a white horse accessory or a type placed there by someone else this is an older McCormack during the two way plow it has been reconditioned by Beiler machinery they rebuilt the thing and then added high speed dips with deck boards.
It has a lifting lever for each side. It has other levers that set the angle of the plow. It has an old style hitch for a two way plow on the bottom facing down. your double tree slides to that bottom which gives you the correct line of throw, that's all automatic when the bottom right is down it will slide to this position you get to the end of the field and turn you release the bottom left . it slides to that side and gives you the correct line of fire. It's not a new machine, but it still works.
This is the right 14 inch sulky plow made by Gap Pennsylvania's White Horse machine. They make it in 12 versions of 14 or 16 inches with our bottom is for right or left hand depending on your preference, it has high speed bottom deck boards, the disposable blade type shares have several levers to control the depth and angle of your plow, the furrow wheel can be directed with this lever of this type. from a small basic sulky plow works quite well, yes this is a 14 inch right handed sulky plow made by pioneer crews from Dalton Ohio. It is also available in twelve, fourteen, sixteen inches with a right or left bottom, depending on what you want. it has levers to adjust the depth at the angle the bottom has a steering lever for the furrowing wheel it has a nice tool box this could be this one it has a tab I think it is also available as a tabless version and this is the tabless version where we just saw has a very similar construction to the one we just saw, but this one does not have a tongue, as you can see, the one we have seen for a long time features a pond and the subject may have never seen this.
It is the European style Cumberland bottom, it does a better job of plowing and all types of sport oil, especially inland and heavy bucket types, turn the ground and have a longer and slower stroke than standard bottoms. The Coulters have fluted blades with an adjustable stem and a hub with tapered roller bearings. This particular style of bottom has been disputed by a pioneer from Norway. It's something that's been designed in Europe, where they have a long history that continued after a week designing horse plows in the '40s, they kept working on some of these innovations and came up with something that's a little bit easier. for the horses.
I was talking to the lending family and they told me that all their evidence indicates that this particular fund is pulling 10 to 20 percent easier. A very significant saving in efficiency and

s if you go to the field could make the difference in how your horses feel the next day when you return to the field. Farmer Brown Florist in New York buys these old plows and rebuilds them. This particular model is a John Deere Syracuse two-way plow. It still has the cast moldboard of Syracuse and Cher. This is to pull a furrow to the right or left.
You can plow the furrow and turn. and come back in the same groove, throw each ball, you are throwing all your grooves in the same direction. Farmer Brown came out of New York specializing in Leroy plows, who was a famous plow maker also of New York many, many years ago. and this is a Leroy plow that he brought in to show how old plows worked, as you can see, it has wooden handles, it has a cast iron moldboard, it shares the land side of the chine, it has a Colt jointer gauge wheel on the front part, has a fork.
Here, to adjust your horizontal line, there is a draw and this fork can be raised and these notches can be moved up and down to get your vertical draw line straight. Browns farmers plow 14 inch right wall, all made with pioneer equipment from Dalton Ohio, we have wooden handles, everything else is made of steel, the brackets, the rail to mount when you place the plow at the end of the furrow, It has a high speed steel bottom, it has a gauge wheel fork for the horizontal line of hitch holes. of the vertical hitch line, Pioneer manufactures them in twelve, fourteen, sixteen models for right and left hand.
They feature a Sun freakin gasket for better trash can cover coverage, adjustable depth, depth measuring wheel, sliding steering handle to protect the wooden handles when you drag it. the ground and a convenient turn, it's smart. Next up is Robert Redford, Rich Holdings' younger sister and he's fighting and me and J. Car-mounted 3-point 10-inch player or ing manufacturing. This unit can come in 8 inches, we are 12 inch radix. the bottom is also available it has a simple walk behind there is an Oliver four bottom tractor plow which has been slightly modified for use with horses by adding a top platform railing and a seat now this has a mechanical lift this rope operates the mechanical lift The rope was used to move towards the tractor, but now it is operated by the driver up here.
This particular case is being pulled by a white horse. Hydraulic cardinal. The hydraulic system is not used. It is just the machine that is only used as a basic machine for the car. This four-bottom plow. It is used to demonstrate the beating of the twelve mules, it is a popular feature of each day of horse

progress

, everyone wants to see the twelve

animal

s pulling the four-bottom plow and they handle it very well, the four mules and the team of wheels are hooked to the single trees and double trees and even ER at the rear, just in front of the cart, the swing gear is hooked around the front of the tongue and the lead gear is whistling to the front of the ropes and with pulleys, the pulleys equalize the load and make each horse pull its share of the load and it works very well.
Save all the weight of three rows of even errors like they used to use with twelve horse strokes, you would have had three rows of Eve like the ones at the base of the tongue and they are heavy, they are running away and the horses are going over them. This rope system has even gotten a lot better than this is an 8 inch mobile plow with a bottom made by I&J made in Gap Pennsylvania, it's just a pretty simple little machine, it has two handles, it also has a rail here to mount when you pull it that way, it has a small bottom with a disposable grate, it has an adjustable clevis hitch, you can adjust it this way for your horizontal side draw you can adjust it this way for your vertical view or your vertical draw line would be good for a 9j herro spring garden plow I&J calls it on the back, as you can see it has three rows and spring tines with duck foot blades on the end of them, they are good for weeding, made by I&J, just another use for your little three point hitch car on a little three point implement, lifting and loosening action that you'll see when you go down that drive. ground there, this little five foot disc is made by a Loyola Pennsylvania rough machine, you see, it's a little little disc, it has a manual hydraulic pump to raise and lower the discs, it has rubber tires, so on the end elevated distal you can transport it. very easily on rubber tires, both treads are permanently angled, you can't adjust the angle slightly by unscrewing them and they will rotate a bit, but the angle is pretty much preset, the rear tread is locked in position right now to follow directly behind the front group by operating this latch, you can unlock the rear group and can turn to follow the front group and curves etc.
This particular one is the m12 because it has 12 discs, it's four feet wide so it can easily be placed in the back of a pickup truck or a trailer and can be held up to make custom gardens if you want, it has the shock absorber on top of that adjustable front to go backwards or back and forth so it doesn't cut any more weight. with more weight with the front or rear disc, it's really nice and as you can see it's probably sinking in there, at least about five inches. This is the three point hitch car made by NJ Manufacturing of Gap Pennsylvania, with a manual lift. three point cut.
I judge the adjustments here for his angle on his three-point arms. In this particular case, there is a small four-foot three-point record holder mounted on the carriage. The disco era is not made by I and J, but by the bandwagon. This is a hair roller, it is manufactured by a horse manufacturing company and is manufactured and sold by Beiler machine company. It is four feet wide, has two rows of hair tines in the front, has a roller behind it, great for working in a garden and smoothing them out before planting them there, you can see the way the sticks break in the spring, If you have some hard dirt clods and you put that roller on top of it, it will do a really good job for you, you have the weight of the driver is there to help the roller work well, flip the transport disc right now it is in the position of Transport with the wheels down to use it in the disc position, unlatch it, flip it over, twist its tongue and latch it. and then you have your discs, they are discs as simple to transport as the ones you can find here.
We have retreated to be with the spectators of him and he is pulling this twist, this Henry is demonstrating how it works. He just pulls it out, twists it and hooks it. back up again and you are ready to start another innovative idea to make a transport disc, this requires some cold push and pull and it works, 9j and 4ft cultivators of course, PTO driven and en I have these tines that spin and dig up the soil and it's a one-pass soil prep. You do it again once and your soil is nice, soft and well worked and pulverized, it makes a good seed bed and the demos were using this before. the most layers to work the soil and get a good seed bed and then they put as much of it in the drip tube and then they came with another implement and planted these color ators from Gap Pennsylvania injection manufacturing, it's also for use in mulch production business, you can see the spikes are sent four feet apart so we can straddle the row of plastic mulch and cultivate between them between most of the paths, just one modification, the cultivator Vine J's regular two-row has the lever to lift the lure.
In gangs, she has foot steering than D to steer the wheels so you can avoid things you don't want to hit. This little 5-stroke cultivator made by Gap injection is used behind a pony or a medium or a small horse, so there's not much to do, it's got a lever here that you can put the tines further apart, closer together, closer together Depending on the width between your rows, all you have to do is start your horse down the path and walk. behind it and keep it in position and ready, we used to use one very similar to this when I was a kid in our big garden at home, oncethat you place the plastic, you generally place it on 7 foot centers, about three feet apart and this is just an ideal piece of equipment to call oval between the plastics.
You have a horse, you can steer that kolevatov by leaning to one side or the other and if you get a small garden and a big pony, you know this would be an ideal piece of equipment for working at home, it can handle a lot of several acres of produce with plastic only to cooperate between the plastic grows, the pioneer three-section spring towards there, manufactured by Dalton Ohio pioneer equipment, is useful in separating Oh. clods dig up weeds the hair of the teeth our spring steel so they take four rocky terrain is also very useful because these spring teeth will move on the rocks the angle of the teeth is set by the lever to be more or less aggressive It has raking teeth on the back for straightening, so it's kind of a combined spring for straightening hair, this little wrote cultivators made by IVA Manufacturing in Narva, Pennsylvania, it has pedals, one on each side, direct the wheels to close the crop, it has a manual elevator to lower and raise. the gang cultivators have spring tie down cultivator tines with duck foot tines on them just a pretty basic little single row cultivator the two row cultivator made by Inj Manufacturing of Gap Pennsylvania has a manual lift to raise and lower the gang has standing direction to close crop has spring spike arms and ducks duck foot teeth here and that's a crow crow foot teeth duck foot teeth whatever you want to call them here is to elevate it to pink this is a John Deere KB's oldest six-foot disc and wide Groff Dale machine from Loyola Pennsylvania has made a name for itself rebuilding and restoring old John Deere tractor discs and using them for Houston behind four trucks.
These particular discs are probably 40 or 50 years old, but they are a good machine. Groff DL replaces all bearings. the reels he puts new disc blades on them he rebuilds everything so that it is nice and tight this lever there is a rope on this lever with which the driver can adjust the angle of the disc the groups of discs it has two groups in the front and two groups in the the back Two front bands come out, so they're angled this way and the other angled that way. The back bands are angled so one is angled out that way and the other is angled outward like that and these various holes here just set the degree of angle of the discs.
These gangs there is a pioneer in sectioning the hair with barbed teeth in each section six feet so that the total width of the hair of this particular version of Harrow is 12 feet. It's a pretty simple machine. This lever sets the angle of the teeth to be more aggressive. If you want a really aggressive heroine, move her towards the back of the apex teeth. in an upright position to be less aggressive, you move it as such, carry, move your teeth, it is flat, the pioneer does this and almost any width you want, a six foot pioneer blade, this flame is useful for leveling the land in movement, it is adjustable, the angle of is adjustable, pull the pin. here and you can swing the blade to throw it straight this way or throw it that way this is the lever that lifts the blade it has a pair of shoes to prevent the blade from digging in too deep they are adjustable this is a plastic bed lift where This is manufactured by manufacturing smoke and Sylvania olefin.
This is actually one of the new innovative models of it. Has a mounted address for site

draft

card on the back. That's what the guys do that I would look for and it will keep it especially on a little hillside it's pretty easy to do and it rises and with this direction you can keep it straight this will make a raised bed the next layer that comes up will be a flat bed the raised bed gives you a bit of an advantage if you are in soil that gets wet easily, it helps with dreaming especially if it is raining a lot and the weather we have been having around here lately you know this is not a problem but in early spring This raised bed also helps.
Warm the soil a little more to make those spots grow a little faster. This will be plastic up to three feet or 4 feet. Today we have a four-foot roll there and you will see the others that are the earth. in the front and then the bistas back in the back will cover it on the side and we actually take some for the horses to pull, the soil the seedbeds are prepared and the mulch is put down. They come with this transplanter. This one is also from Nolte. produce has a water tank it has racks that you can lay flat the flat parts of the seedlings it has a wheel that spins this wheel is lowered into the center of the plastic mulch and as it spins these teeth drill a hole through the plastic and inside In the soil there is a hole through the wheel here, which are the wheels filled with water or have water, so when the holes are drilled, a stream of water is released into the hole to give the seedling a little of humidity to start, then two people will do it.
They come back here, one on each side, they have seedling plans in front of them and they take turns sticking a seedling through the holes in the plastic mulch and giving each seedling a little bit, they have to stick it in and give it a little twist to settle the roots, the water gives the seedling a start, the mulch keeps the weeds down and hopefully you end up with a good crop and we usually mix it with that Miller's twelve forty eight eight fertilizer which is a good start. The fertilizer gives the plants a good shot of energy to start growing with a high phosphorus content and it gives them a good shot of water and you will see when the wheel turns and makes a hole in the plastic that they will fill that hole with. water and as thin as this soil is today that silk just sucks up that ball and the kids are going to push those tomato plants down and now they're not going to let them fall into the hole that they're actually going to push in.
Put them in there and give them a bit. I&J Manufacturing from Gap Pennsylvania has made this machine that spreads over plastic mulch and you can have a liquid fertilizer that you're going to apply at the same time. It has a 24 volt battery. which activates the pump that pumps the liquid fertilizer to the rose. This is called a roar spray. Now there are some people in a produce business who put down their plastic in the fall or near winter to plant wheat, rye or rye grass in the aisle. shapes, that's the area between the plastics and then we let it grow to maybe 1218 inches tall and then we go through with this machine and the rollers roll out and roll down that live mulch and then the shielded sprayer sprays the rodeo to kill it .
The company manufactures these horse-drawn planters using John Deere planting units. The Peck Way pot company is located in Gap, Pennsylvania and makes them in ones, twos, threes. I guess that's all I've seen in a two-row and three-row version, so they probably make any in any size. they want to use the John Deere fused maxi planting units that they build through the frame and put wheels on it has a container for fertilizer it has seed cans for seeds it has a 24 volt hydraulic lift system to hydraulically lift the planting units from up from the ground you have V disc openers that open a trench in the soil, you have pressed wheels and at that point the seed is dropped into the trench, you have these pressed wheels that firm up the soil on each side of the trench and then these wheels are These V wheels cover the trench clothing behind.
They are accurate for rolling planners using John Deere maxi combination units. They come with or without fertilizer attachment. Dry or liquid fertilizer. The Truax flexes to a TRO drill that covers a width of just over five feet. is for no-till drilling, it is equipped with ions and a manufacturing quasi-remote hydraulic system to operate these discs until the strip of soil in front of the planning units, the planning units then each have a V-disc opener that open the trench on that little strip of tilled soil and the seed and fertilizer fell in and it has pressure wheels behind it that closed the trench and firmed up the soil on the litter discs over the seeds remove the litter to allow the seeds to have contact suitable with the soil.
The result is good grass germination, handles a wide variety of seeds, and is easily pulled with four to six horses. The bi-fold sprinkler manufactured by the Fisher Spring Company in Pennsylvania. It can be between 45 and 60 inches. 660 feet wide. The side arms extend hydraulically to the height of the arms above the ground. It can be adjusted with a crank here on a winch. They can achieve up to seven feet of clearance above their rows. This particular model is 45 feet. It has a 300 gallon tank. It has foam markers at the end of the pens. I see some foam leaked out of this one, that's how you see where you've been and you have these barriers extended 45 feet.
Go to the end of the field to turn around and go back. It's pretty hard to know where you've been. Notice where the foam is and that's how you can tell where it was last. It has a separate fresh water tank to rinse any chemicals out of the system when you're done or to rinse your hands once you put things on, get chemicals. in you, it has a Subaru Robin engine, pump power and hydraulic system, this sprayer is manufactured by IVA Manufacturing of Northland Pennsylvania, it is a single arm, the glass can be extended hydraulically, this particular one does not have a marker foam, but it has that seven horsepower Subaru engine turns on the hydraulic pump and there is the pump for the liquid that is in this in the sprayer.
These are used to spray pesticides, herbicides, you name it. Now this will rise up to eight feet and you can spray right on top. top of sweet corn with this options in this our rinse system with wheels in tandem inducer tanks and up to four hundred pounds of pressure this one is now configured but 300 psi and tank sizes from 200 to 500 this trailer type field sprayer from hive a manufacturer in an Argo in Pennsylvania has a four and a half horsepower Subaru Throbbin engine that drives the pump to pump the fluid through it. I have foam markers.
The ends of the arm are extended manually and can also be raised. Up and down the boom can be raised and lowered using this winch. They have boom size options available between 30 and 45 feet. The trailer type has a 150 gallon tank, but can go up to 750 gallons if it is foam. markers and hydraulic folding arms field sprayers manufactured by Fisher Sprayer Company of Errors Pennsylvania has a 35 foot six horse arm our Subaru engine the pump power has a fresh water tank to flush the media tank and is a manual fold no there is hydraulic system If you know, the boom deploys this way and that boom folds that way and covers an area that is 35 feet wide. 50 The 150 gallon tank is in the one we're looking at.
The 15-gallon water tank with a rinse nozzle is available in the front. 35 foot boom 7700 per L roller pump Six horsepower Robin engine 150 gallon tank Dripless nozzle bodies 14 30 inch rows I'm Charlie Penny from Wales in the UK and farming with horses on a mountain top , we have about 30 acres of good land and then another 20 or so woods around the edges and now we do most of our work with horses and I'm just here to try to show what the European view of machinery is. We start doing land tours. things that have many uses because they are low and pollute, etc., but they also have many limitations, that is why we have created this four-purpose multi-use cart with an engine that you can remove and use.
It's a simple card and the most important thing is that you can take it to different sections to do different jobs, the horse is just dragging a bit of the equipment that is needed for that job, in other words, like in the setup right now. with the grass cover it is fine, but it would be silly if we wanted to go plowing to have to have the engine on also because the engine is not necessary for plowing, so we have designed a system where the entire engine unit slides and in its Instead a bench is placed with a small hand pump to power the hydraulics, so you can actually adapt the configuration and weight of the hitch truck or service station whatever you want to call it for the job. in your hand and that's all you have, for example, since it's in this now more complex full wheel configuration.
If you want, we have a standard category one three-point hitch on the back so you can hitch your implements and we have a 540 PTO. Well, what can you do, for example? I mean, this is not a hay cutting machine, but assuming you imagine we have a conventional sickle bar lawn mower, we get outand we cut the hay with it. On that layout, then on the same layout we set up our turner and windrower and set up the hay. Now we're ready to shrink it. Well, the sun has been shining unlike Wales all the time, so what we do now is take the whole rear axle.
We walked away and then back to a basic two wheel four wheeler with a motor that we can use to pull our baler. Ok, we've made the hay. We have all my neighbors nearby to come and load it, so what can we do? then we don't need the motor anymore, what we do is slide the entire motor unit out. It has four legs that actually hook into the frame, so you simply slide it off the frame of the hitch carriage and onto its little subframe. We take the road out and put a bench seat in the front and all we have then is just a simple, classic two wheel four wheel cut with a bench seat, we hitch it up to the trailer and we go and haul the hay in so we can tailor the machine design - exactly - every operation precisely and that's the most efficient way to do it.
My name is Park Orson and I'm from York County, Pennsylvania and this is a Norwegian harness. The things that make the Norwegian harness different from the typical one. English harness so to speak, one thing is the collar, the collar is attached at the top and bottom with straps and then there is a wooden frame on each side that is padded, so instead of having the collar separate from the frame, they are attached and it makes it easier. put on and also means that the collar can move a little with the horse's shoulders rather than swinging like a full neck collar.
Sometimes the second thing that makes the Norwegian system different is that the back pad or saddle is metal or sometimes wood. rod that is rigid and then there are these swivel pads that sit near the horse's withers and the third thing that makes it different is the harness ring and when it's set up the pull comes here from the collar obviously and it clips on there, the chair hooks there. and the breakout does too and then the shaft connects to this harness ring. My axle is not the typical Norwegian one, it's kind of improvised, but you get the idea that the connection between the harness and the load is this metal plate called the order and it's just a plate that you can slide on.
If we were in Norway, there would be a slot in the axle. It's very evident that when I saw them using the horses in Norway, it seemed so easy that they could just put that on. pass the axle and hook the horse up quickly without having to worry about trails and then separate the backs the same way I was doing with my English harness, so we were doing a little plowing with this horse with this set of axles and it worked. pretty good and I'll wear her a little bit so you can see the harness and how the collar moves when she does it.
More recently I went to Norway and worked with a horse trainer called Olaf Newby and then I asked Olaf if he made me harnesses and he did. He comes to the United States from time to time and he measured, he measured my horses and made a harness to fit them, so I've had the harness for about four or five months and I'm still learning how to fit it and how to use it properly, but it's been very fun and so far I haven't found any disadvantages. It really is quick to use. I find it easy to put on. on it is adjustable between my two mayor projects that are on both horses so they are a little different in the way they are built but the harness is adjustable for either of them and I can use it for a draft job for plowing or drag a log or can I put it, use it in my cart, my name is hard and I'm from Germany.
I am editor and publisher of German Drops magazine and I was first here in 2000, in the days of Kansas horse

progress

, and I am interested in the development of equipment and machinery for the use of draft horses , we have horse progress days that are similar to their progress days, we try to promote working with horses and show people the possibilities of working with horses and we try to introduce modern horses. The traction technologies there, the main difference in the progress phases of their horses, is that our Germans are probably more American than us, so we have many different competitions, such as plowing, felling or pulling competitions and a show program really big and we normally have between fifteen and twenty thousand visitors each year.
I'm interested in seeing how things are done and I'm one of the organizers of the German host's progress days, so it's interesting to see how that's handled and yes, I think we can learn a lot from your work and maybe you can get something out of it. little of our I&J makes this 7 foot lawn mower, they take a three point hitch tractor plus mounted on this frame that they build and it's powered by a 25 horsepower Subaru Robin engine, it has a hydraulic lift it has the travel that brings the power take off to the mower the more knife there is in the guards working out of directions it's kind of a scissor cut the guards move this way in the lower sections we'll move that way you can remove the mower that carriage with three point hitch is something that could be used for any other for the manufacture of other implements makes this conditioning lawn mower can be used strictly as a lawn mower, it can be used alone as a conditioner or it can be used to condition while mowing the lawn, whatever you prefer that is powered by a 25 horsepower Subaru engine, you have a nine foot cutter bar that is hydraulically driven, there is a hydraulic motor right there that runs the belt that drives the cutter bar , it has two rubber conditioning rollers underneath if you are conditioning while you cut, you have the blade down, of course, and you are cutting a row here, meanwhile, you are conditioning the row that you cut in the last round and the conditioning system, for Of course, he collects the hay and squeezes it. between these two rollers and that curls and breaks the stem so it dries faster and more evenly conditioners with rubber or steel rollers this unit is fully hydraulic if the conditioner has a Peachie spring float mower purchased in Belleville Pennsylvania reconditions McCormick Deering mower probably as old as I am, but anyway it has been rebuilt with a six foot cutter bar, new clips, nice guard sections, etc., it is equipped with a front axle that keeps the weight of the tongue off of horses and this is an axle with spinning wheels recently, when most machines had two.
The front wheeled truck sat a little further away and actually steered it. In this case, the tongue simply steers the mower and the caster wheel follows, but it still carries their weight from the front to the front of the engine. that relieves the horses from the weight of the lawn mower, some people don't know that Cormac Deering paid for these lawn mowers until 1948 and under a tool box, if you crouch under it you will see a raised cast plate that has a number of numbers that will tell you the day, month and year it left the assembly line.
This is a new and old idea. More conditioner and of course this piece comes out and cuts the hay. He passes it between two steel rollers that are crimping rollers. and shoot without the rear in a row. In this case, it does it all in one operation in Mo's final conditions, at the same time as one manufacturer makes this nine-foot hay conditioner. Each manufacturer is located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Your PTO driven machine. It has a hydraulic system. cylinder to raise and lower the conditioning rollers carries two spike-shaped rubber conditioning rollers and they pick up the monk and pass it between the two rollers and the pressure and the crimson spike breaks bruises the hay stalks so that they dry more evenly and more quick in this case of course it's a standalone conditioner so you have to cut it first and then go back and run and run the conditioner on it.
This is another Tedder to hate baskets. It is made in Italy. PTO driven hydraulic cylinders to let the end baskets lower to the operating position as you move forward, the rotors rotate in this way and kick the hay back and lift it, turn it to dry in case it is a dam, this is a little j2 ion basket, hey, cheddar cheese outlet. driven like a spike twist, they gave it a kick, hey, loosen it up and fluff it up so it dries better. I have an adjustment here for its height above the tines above the ground.
There is a way to peck. 7 feet. I hate cheddar cheese. This is driven by the ground instead of being the basket. tears of hate type as we have been seeing this is a real type and as you move it forward the tines rotate in this direction and lift the lint from the hay it dries it from the rotating center bottle number kW 550 this tenor is price listing for $6,350 local dealer is thinking about lunch WF will approach the Triple H team. You can get these heads up to 49 feet wide, the strongest and heaviest build tenor on the market.
This unit will withstand shocks less than 9 feet. Hydraulic adjustment and folding routine arms. with five turns in the tines staggered tines large tines hit the ground evenly thanks to pioneering equipment to allow people to use their motorized car there is a ten wheel Vermeer wheel rake it has a hydraulic control that allows these arms to lower and is int so the wheels are in a V formation. A V says it will rake three strips of seven foot molars in a single row of wind in the center because when the wheels come out like that, you have a V formation as such, it requires a Four hydraulic carts to operate have a center wheel that picks up some loose hay in the middle that could be overlooked, otherwise they say it is good to use on uneven terrain because these wheels have spring spikes and ride over rough terrain with very easy but still rake the hay in a row and these are not these wheels they do not have a motor, they simply turn on their own when they come into contact with the ground is what makes the wheels turn.
This is another ten foot V wheel. The rake was actually built in Italy, but is distributed in the US by AG Equipment of Luverne Tennessee. It has remote hydraulic hoses so it requires a white horse hydraulic system for the car to operate it and the hydraulic cylinders, when working, lower the two arms. Its ten wheels and a V formation, it has a kicker wheel that picks up everything left in the center and this works again. Why wheels that come into contact with the ground cause them to rotate and move the hay in a V-shaped format in a windrow. it's a Miller pro-park spin takeoff hey Rick, as you can see, it's got the arms coming out of a center hub, it's got the teeth here as it spins in this direction, there's a gear in the hub that causes right here that the These arms, the rake arms, they start to rotate forward and lower the tines to make contact with the ground, they move to the other side and then to the back corner at about 11 o'clock, there it starts to lift when they get here. the tines are all the way up and that drops the hay in a row back here.
This is just a windbreak to help maintain the integrity of the row. These rotary rakes are said to turn hay on one side so they are good for Wet Hay Rick and wet hay like to turn it over, let it dry and also they don't tie up the hay like normal side delivery does. Rick, do they just leave it in a straight row without wrapping it with string? This is another rotary rake made by Inj manufactures in Gap Pennsylvania and this is a land drive model, although I&J also makes a PTO model, this model was driven directly from the land wheels and operates similar to the Miller Pro which we just saw in that the arms of the rake as they rotate this way they also rotate this way on the axis starting right here they are down and they catch the hay they move they move the hair and then back they start to rise and they drop the hay row on this side along this side here these this this can is 10 feet wide and it's a little wide for transport but it all folds up these arms can be easily removed from the center there are holes here where you can glue the arms together for transport , this folds down the other side and comes down to about 6 feet wide to fit through doorways and such, hey Trey, wrong number, a 10 board is available in two additional sizes, this particular range has an 11.
Width foot braking with 8 or 8 horsepower motor Standard lift hydraulic system made in USA tandem walking beam axles and has a pretty smooth lifting action, boy yeah, you'll want to notice this once it comes out , this is a Vermeer 5400 round baler, was provided to Glenn by the Freiburg, Pennsylvania dealer, a local dealer whofactory. The bales are mixed with round bales, the large ones can measure from 4 feet by 5 feet to 5 feet by 6 feet and are good for dry hay or high-moisture hay on which to make silage. Of course, it has the knock-off out of the park. There is an axle here that comes from the fire truck and provides power to the rubber belts that roll the hay in and form the big round bale.
It has wheels here to guide the hay into the truck underneath the front of the baling device. right here it tells you how big your beak is and when you have to stop and tie it, this arrow moves down the scale and when it gets here, then it's a 5 foot diameter bale run, you can stop it earlier, but you have to stop it and then ties it, wraps the twine around the bale to tie it down and then ejects the handle out the back, ideal for equipment due to its ultimate weight of 4000 pounds, handles both dry and sigh chain, requires a horsepower to operate this unit is equipped with hay saver wheels and flotation tires.
Monitors are optional. This is a four by seven bottle here. Rural agriculture is incorporated. They also have a four four four five seven which is four times five four six seven four times six. five five seven five times five four five five four seven five times six and our five times five and they also have a five times six. This baler we are looking at is owned by Henry Stoltzfus, Kor 125 crown round baler model, Baylor has low horsepower needs and low repair cost all Ravens Baylor's will handle all types of wet suspended jobs. An additional bail buffer is available so that the equipment does not have to back up to lower the veil.
This is a new idea of ​​7200 five straight square balers. A company called Johnny Landis mounted this engine on the baler to eliminate the need for a power take-off. This is a twenty-nine horsepower Briggs & Stratton v-twin Vanguard engine and is belted to the floor, the steering wheel of the machine normally being its part. The take-off shaft would have been ahead of your tractor or a power card, but this eliminates the need for the PTO take-up spools underneath to pick up the hay and shoot it directly into the bale chamber and directly to the rear. a new well.
I wouldn't say it's a new concept, but it is a newer concept. The older Baylors had to be picked up on the side and the hay had to go up, in and then into the bale chamber, which created a lot. There are more opportunities to get stuck, so this direct design is much better in that regard. I have the two daughters here at the top to tie the ropes and of course the bullet just came out the back. This shot is set to push the rim outward. and lift it up and there's a hook, a wagon behind it and it pushes the bale directly into the baling chamber of the wagon into the feeder for uniformity on solid bales, cutting edge big block engine for torque and power, shame Baylor is burning the hole and mini value, makes an 8. 11 inch by 11 inch bail with converted self tied otters and this one has been converted from a New Holland ash prosthesis.
The team is the manufacturer from Strasbourg PA and they are also the distributor for this baler. It can be a semi, field or stationary baler. It can be driven by hydraulic or electric PTO. The bail causes the baler to manufacture these small bales with variable lengths depending on the configuration. Bail has many uses, the main one being decorative straw bales for inexpensive decorations. It can also be used for horses as a bailiff or feeder. for horses, ideal for horse trailers at the races, shows no open bails lying around. This is a bale loader and transporter. It is made by brazing Brandywine with Brook Pennsylvania honey.
It is hydraulically operated and has a 13 horsepower Honda engine to operate. the hydraulic pump, this is a tank for the hydraulic fluid and these levers operate this fork that goes down and then you pull it forward and it slides those forks under a round bale and then the hydraulic power lifts the bale and dumps it here. on the bed and there is a conveyor belt on the bed that can move that bale back, put another one in front of it and then move it back. It carries three small round bales and two large round bales when ready to unload. the conveyor moves the bale back to here, the hydraulics one of the hydraulic levers lifts it up and lets it push it down in that direction and then the bale just rolls after the first bales go out of operation it operates the conveyor again , move the next bale into position and it can be removed This is a bay loader something similar It is a moose loader that obeys the moose It is made by Sonny Holloway teams with Lincoln is Pennsylvania and has the hydraulic tank, Honda thirteen engine horses, you have the hydraulic valves up here to operate the various components of the machine, you have the fork that can be lowered, slide under a bale, lift the bail and throw it on the conveyor move the conveyor back and the bale moves forward back, pick up another bale, listen again, it will hold about three four foot round bales and it will probably hold three five foot bales as well to unload the bills moved on the conveyor back to here and this rear end tilts like this hydraulically and that it simply tilts the bale as it rolls in that direction once unloaded, then moves another bale back and does the same with it.
This Tecna bail 900 neck bail motor is also provided by Glen Binder from Freiburg. It is manufactured in Beaumont Quebec, Canada, by the Innovation Agricole Atom company. It's kind of similar to the other ones we've seen in that it has two forks that you lower hydraulically, you slide under the bail, lift it up, and it rolls onto this tray over here. It is a solid metal tray, there is no conveyor, but there is an A-frame type arm and a pusher that is hydraulically operated and simply pushes the bales back to unload them, the bales are pushed back on these two arms and the paca is guarded.
I go back to these two arms and the arms are lowered and the machine is pulled out from under it. It's a round bale hauler from Trail Farm Supply of Dundee, Ohio. I have a five and a half horsepower Honda engine to run the hydraulic pump. I have two. The control valves say it will carry two 4x4 handles or two 5x5 handles and to load them I will use this machine. These two arms are lowered to ground level and then the backed things are hydraulically cut so that the arms are on each side. of a round bale, then you operate one hydraulic lever and the two arms move under the bale and then you operate the other hydraulic lever and these arms come up and place the bail right over these rollers and the rolls just spin freely. so to unload when you get where you're going, you release them again and you just manually push the bail and then you pull the thing out from under the bail.
This is what an Anderson RB 9000 Baylor can do for grabbing bales. from Martins Farm Supply Greencastle Pennsylvania the bales are a round bale that is placed on this platform back here, it moves forward through the wrapper that is right here and has moved forward, it comes to these rollers, these rollers are placed another bullet behind it and as it's pushed forward, it continues to wrap around this platform is down at the time, so the bullets, the Royal Bill, keep coming out of this, coming out of these rollers when you get to when the bill, the end of the tube of the bullet hits the ground, then these drive The wheels can be activated and the whole machine just moves that way, that way you could have a row of bales from here to Fort Knox.
I guess okay, this whole machine is powered by a 13 horsepower Honda engine right here driving a hydraulic pump and from there. everything is operated hydraulically all the hydraulic cylinders have been moved to various functions and make their hydraulic motors drive the front wheels there is a hydraulic motor that drives the bail wrapper this is a small square bale wrapper made by Ish Manufacturing of Lancaster Pennsylvania fired by a four-cylinder Kubota diesel engine and a hydraulic motor, in this case several small square bales are placed in that area, there is a plunger right there that goes up and pushes them into the chamber, compacting them as those compacted bales are pushed out of the camera.
They are immediately wrapped with several layers of polyethylene plastic film that keeps them in a compact state. This can make a long tube, just keep pushing the hooks in and this keeps pushing them out and wrapping them around as you go. They use a large foam board starts with that and wraps around as part of the tube part. When they end up with a tube as long as they want, they put another one of these foam plastic end pieces on the other end and wrap it around it. so you have a solid tube that has to be airtight and this system, these bail wrapping systems are used to make hay, it takes the bail to the hay with high humidity and wraps it tightly, excludes the air and it ferments there and creates a form of silence for a wealth of information and knowledge about logging with horses, mules and oxen.
