Thursday we got our training on one of the big boy toys that we will be operating while we are here.
Wallace got to go first.
The plow had to have the cylinder replaced which caused me to be delayed a bit. My plow was wider than Wallace's, so, my extra instructions were to be careful going through the cattle guards. Oh, no...my first time out and now another challenge!!!
Darrell followed me out to the field to make sure I made it out without any problems.
That's Wallace coming toward me.
There I am on the John Deere 7710 with a/c and radio!!! We ran in C 3 and made sure the throttle was in the right placement according to the tachometer. There is another lever that raises and lowers the plow and that is used whenever we hit a wet spot that causes the tires to spin. Of course, the plow is in the up position while going down the road.
I just had to stop and get this picture of those straight rows. My brother-in-law was a farmer and I always wanted to get on a tractor and make those straight rows. Not bad for our first time doing this.
We have two more plots to plow and we will be plowing again tomorrow.
Until next time...
