Looks like you got in some good earth smelling time JM, good on ya. Our forcast is for rain next weed, about 1/2 to 3/4 here in Sonoma County, need it bad. Nice looking tractor and disk, is that a Killifer?. Thank you for sharing, Tom.

Hi Tom! Ya know, funny you mention smells, as the ground was so dry there wasn’t much other than dry dust! I doubt I have Coronavirus, as I can still taste my food just fine. 😝
I tidied that small parcel because someone I knew made some snarky comments about my plowing job from last year... I told them to keep their eyes on the road or better yet, don’t drive down that street anymore. Hah!
That’s the first Killefer disc I got in a package deal a few years ago (time flies collecting/hoarding btw).
It’s an 1100 series. I have another one that could use blades that I would like to sell. (Hint hint).
Deas if you’re out there, how is the one at SM treating you folks? That was a nice one.
Today will be fences make good neighbors day.
The ripper shank/beam got swapped out yesterday for the $5.00 V ditcher. I will make a moat around the field to keep people from driving in and around. JM

I like the look of that muffler JM - is that a Cat part #?

Cheers,

Sure is Neil! Good old Donaldson brand. It is much quieter than some off brand off shore thingies that were definitely aftermarket. Zinc coated too!
The story goes like this: I ordered mufflers for the D4D SA repeatedly, and they always came back as 3" inlet per the book. OH well... I finally got the correct mufflers for the D4D SA machines (HUGE THANKS to EDB) when Eddie shared the parts listing for CAT mufflers with dimensions...Every vendor said I was incorrect... well darn it, I can't help it if the turbocharger outlet is over 4"...
Apparently the parts system isn't all that accurate from you know where.Hahaha.

thanks for the pics and the urban disking JM !
-when somebody tries grossing you out for your farming practice(s)....gross them out with where food actually comes from ! (hint..it's not Safeway etc...)

-i still have a vivid memory of my first dozer experience...my dad had a friend dig a couple small ponds...mid 70's....never seen that kinda power up close before (D7e)...even got in the operator seat for a bit...but had no clue how to really operate it...

and wow...i never smelt dirt, ground, the earth... like that before....it's etched in my little brain

Caterpillar D6C 99j

Nothing "Sucked" about that purchase! Some decent buys that day. I bought the D68U with blade, toolbar goodies etc. for about $2000.00;
What sucked was the CAT #1 pull grader that sold for $15.00 to some jokers that ended up scrapping it!

Its all good. Actually a good family friend . Myself, I would have never said anything like that, but oh well. I had fun bringing out several crawlers out there to "work". As mentioned before, I call this parcel my "test track",  as I really don't have anywhere else to give them a decent workout anymore (all orchards now). Add to the fact that several tractor tires and disc tires have been destroyed by foreign objects discarded along the fenceline from swell neighbors. Tracks to solve that problem...
I have memories of this place too. Our trusted custom farmer back in the days when I was a little kid, used to do the majority of the work. He had very nice Caterpillar tractors, even some TD-6 62 series IH crawlers just like the one I had recently purchased from SilverStreak. I even snagged (and bent) tw0 disk drags on the same Tangerine tree that he caught his Marvin orchard plane on! That dinky tree out lives us! Hah! Glad you have fond memories of your dad as well. JM
