After talking to Tony last night and doing some more thinking today I think it's time to retire the D-EO-20 rakes. I love using them but I have also lost a lot of hay this year due to it getting rained on because I couldn't get it raked and baled in time. I need to speed up some of my processes. I had already decided to retire my TO-20 in favor of the diesel 135, the #62 moldboard plow has been retired in favor of the disc plow, I guess the rakes are next. The sad part is I guess I won't have any watchers anymore. I have had people stop and watch me work with some of that stuff. I was plowing two weeks ago and I looked up and there was a guy with his two boys watching me. He wanted them to see how they plowed in the "old days". With my job I'm usually off in the summer months and I sell my hay to make extra money and I just got to thinking about how much money I've lost due to the speed and the fact that a bar rake ropes the hay and hurts drying rather than helps. I guess I could keep one of the D-EO-20 rakes of mine around and break it out on special occasions. What's your thoughts?

No you didn't talk me into it, but after I talked to you and did some more thinking today I realized I need to update some equipment. The first D-EO-20 rake I got was still raking,actually I used it back in the spring but like a lot of them the frame had been broken and welded back several times and a few other things. I had robbed some clips and bolts out of it to put on my other D-EO-20 rake and now it is just sitting there in the weeds. I tell you what Tony, if you want that rake when you come down bring a trailer and I'll load it on there and you can take it back and play with it. That's right...it's free to you if you want it.

Jason I think Tony was out in the dark hooking up the trailer after reading your last response last evening so he should be there when you get home from work today.
