** Ok guys, I wasn't sure if I was going to release this video just due to I wasn't sure if it was a fair representation due to field conditions, but I think I said that enough in the video, so people will understand.
** I feel really blessed that I have the opportunity to work with different manufacturers, and dealers and get to try different products. So thanks again to Canada Harvest West Centre and I look forward to trying it again in better conditions. πŸ™‚
** Hopefully we can do a "till down" with different types of high speed tillage, and do some in field comparisons. Especially since they seemed to have shut down all the farm shows due to covid.

I imagine farming equipment in the future involves an overhead transmitter that relays energy down from the ionosphere.
And work like this is done with vibration as opposed to mechanical blades and knives turning the soil

Literally every Reuben here in Eastern Ontario had those stupid harrows ripped off and thrown in the fencerow! First 50ft heliador showed up at a bto's farm this spring.

What's up with the hydraulics? Usually they are faster when it is cold because the oil is thicker and the pressure is higher. I wonder if you have a plugged filter somewhere or one that is almost plugged because that's insanely slow.

@Mike Mitchell Really. I really don't remember that being an issue growing up in Northern Wisconsin. Maybe it's the sands of time eroding away at my memory though. I know I don't miss visiting the outhouse when it's minus 25 F. Maybe I'm thinking wrong I would have thought the oil would have been warmed up when you were finished tilling but is that not the case?

The Hyd are always stiffer/slower when cold.. When it gets to - 30 it could take 10mins to lift the front and loader on any tractor

Soil erosion and it drys it out
Christopher Alton Carlson
I know what cattails are, not just because I work for Duck Unlimited. Cattails are there to tell you you aren’t draining the swamp you’re farming isn’t drained well. Also, a 20 mile drive on a 550hp tractor on dry hard ground (bad for tool) really worth it? Also, how about you leave the cattails, they are good for habitat, eat up pollution, and are effective erosion control. I notice neighbors are hating, maybe get a cow? I grew up on a farm but having visited so many you guys get every square foot possible. I think the previous person doing tillage left that long swamp grass and cattails as a grassed waterway? You just barrel in and destroy all that erosion control. Also, if you’ve seen a slough, you know you cannot farm it. They usually have a bit of standing water, you can’t simply run over a slough with your tractor and call it good to go. It’s always going to be wet. So a., you’ll get crap crop, and you destroy one of the most productive ecosystems, for plants and wildlife. Not guys who drive their father in laws tractor 20 miles for kicks. You are a dork, and you really should read a book about conservation practices in farming. Long term you save money and save the few pieces of bird/duck habitat so you can shoot them later. I don’t mean to bastard. Farming used to be a bit harder than a walk in the park, bad backs and borderline deafness, as well as broken bones that healed badly because it was harvest. You know who really suck? Red River Valley sugar beet farmers. The only controlled market in farming, for an inferior product. The sugar is in the top 20% and it ain’t much compared to the left over hot beats ground up. A semi dumped a steaming load about 4 inches thick in the winter on interstate and it was steaming white crap. The majority of sugar beets. Sugar cane is what we should be buying. Maybe you should come to NW MN for some doo-ing this winter. We hit a slough, then show you what Lake Agazzi beach line looks like. Hint, rocks. Will u be my best friend? My dad would tell me minimum 5 hours if you fire up our old beast, the 8550 Allis. I guess you did 5 but mostly driving

😳 😳That was the longest comment I think I have ever read on US-channel πŸ˜‚ Mine will be shorter! πŸ˜‚ First off, thanks for the feedback I really love feedback! I even love haters - tho I am not saying you are so calm down haha.. But with that said, I love the soil and I want to know what's under those cattails, the previous farmer may not have been very aggressive in his practices, where I am. If it's something I can farm and make some money awesome! If not, I ll seed something to it that likes the moisture and hay it. If not, then I ll leave it or drain it into a another bigger slough of mine, so I can go around less sloughs. Point is, I love what I do, I love the soil and I love improving the ground - whether that's using crop, grass, or whatever else is needed that also pays my bills - key point here.... Pay bills.. We all got them πŸ™‚πŸ‘Œ

Did you say you have to drive that tractor 20 mi to get to the field that you're going to work in? And who's property, who's fields, woods and frozen pond are you driving by to get to that field you're going to work in?

So only tilling around the slews. I ask a lot of questions because I find this interesting. I’m not a farmer, but a gear head. I worked for Detroit Diesel for 42 years and spent the last 18 years in the states before retiring and moving back to Canada.

Drop that Rubin 9 back Mike, they are outdated now by the Rubin 10 which is a far superior machine to the 9 for several different. Much easier implement control on the 10 and a lot less maintenance. Whats causing the plugging is the tines between the discs. Its slowing down the soil too much for the speed you're driving at then causing the plugging. Ive removed them before makes a hell of a difference. On the Rubin 10 you can get a lever on the side and turn the tines up out on the way. They are an awesome disc cultivator.
