First 2017 Hay

PostBy: wilder11354 On: Sun. Jun. 11, 2017 7:42 pm

well it was a struggle, grounds still damp, cutditioner broke a float spring, otherr misc things. Got down enought to make about 100 squares. This will help pay for 2 new float spring for one side of cutditioner. :no1: New springs are $156.00 EACH!! that side has always been slow rising and drooped some. Didn't think one spring would keep that side from coming up at all, guess they are all getting weak thats why 2 springs.
