Had hoped to have a pic of one of them working, but it keeps raining and raining.... Fan (outside of housing) measures 56", hopper pan is 34" wide. How does that compare with a Kools?

After seeing the pictures, it looks more like the old Hustler blower we had. The lifting hook really makes me think so.

It was a great blower, but then some of the sheet metal let go after rusting out and it took out a paddle. I'm pretty sure it was a 56" as well- our Kools are both 54"

I got to thinking about the ammount of time it takes to unload, too. Have't been able to time it this year, but I do remember that the year I timed it, it was taking me 12 minutes to fill the wagons, and my cousin would be pulling into the field by the time Ihad it filled...so it may have been more like 5 min. to unload, allowing for 1/2 mile of road plus pulling in and backing out...

This is kinda OT, but this pic sort of gives you an idea how much rain we've gotten here in the last few weeks. Before all this rain started, there were several places you could walk across the crick (that's how we say it - it says "creek" on maps) on the rocks without getting your shoes wet, and most places were no more than ankle deep. In the deep part near the bridge, it was probably still a good 2 feet deep then. It normaly only goes over the banks in the spring. Looks like the rain has momentarily stopped again, so I gotta run to the mill for a ton of lime, hopefully won't get too wet before I get it unloaded. Then try to haul manure without getting stuck. Came close to it yesterday- rode the diffy lock for about 100 yards on the 7000.

I hear ya. We got lucky and the fields were dry for chopping, but now that I want to start plowing some we're getting just enough rain to make it slick. Dad wants to plant some type of winter forage we can put up in the spring or plow under as green manure.

Main thing is erosion control on that one field that seems worse than the rest.

My brother and I also have to figure out where we want to put our pumpkin patch next year, and he wants to try planting some type of rye (not the normal stuff either) that we spray and then plant right on top of it next spring. We've been having troubles with a type of fungus getting some of our nice pumpkins this season and the rye is supposed to help stop it.
