    Myself been born raised on a Saskatchewan farm and old enough to have operated some old John Deere gas tractors. I have a love for the old 501 cubic inch D model.
    Dad taught me how to flywheel start our old D when I was 10 years old.
    Found this video today of a good ole Kansas girl who shows how it's done.
    You have to watch the whole 7 minutes it's a real hoot.
    Her name is Christy "lone eagle" McCormick who is actually a commercial pilot with over 3000 hours under her belt.

    I'm officially done with harvest!

    Didn't have any trouble at all with soybeans. :)

    The combine header decided to stop running three rows about a good acre from being done...:(


    So I just took three rows at a time! :D

    Last load of corn is leaving in the am!

    I can see those things being really handy!

    Does it leak when it on a angle?
