@  haybaler101 : (27 July 2016 - 10:18 PM) I run 88-89,000 hauling corn (local, low chance of dot) and 85,000 on beans. Bad thing with beans, have to run interstate for 30 miles so playing Russian roulette with the other 500 grain trains and one dot.
@  mlappin : (27 July 2016 - 09:59 PM) 80,000 here, allowed ten percent overload if no scale at the farm.
@  stack em up : (27 July 2016 - 09:27 PM) 80,000 legal here, 88,000 when roads are frozen. Had some friends haul corn to the elevator 2 miles away. Maxed the scale at 102,000, had to split weigh it. They hauled a lot of corn before the DOT found it. Think it was $1,800 PER LOAD fines.
@  Shetland She... : (27 July 2016 - 08:33 PM) Semi dry? And they're converting from green weight? Or better question. what are they using for conversion ratio?
@  PaMike : (27 July 2016 - 08:25 PM) Hey Rutt, how about some pics of this logging operation..always love that line of work in the winter...just do about 15 cord of firewood on our place to keep me busy over the winter.

@  deadmoose : (27 July 2016 - 06:52 PM) Under 80k to make it legal here.
@  RuttedField : (27 July 2016 - 06:13 PM) Tri-axle trailer obviously (which I should have added)
@  RuttedField : (27 July 2016 - 06:11 PM) What is the average weight of a loaded semi? Rolled into the mill yesterday at 102,000 lbs and weight wise only had 14 cord on. I scaled it on the deck and had 17 cord. 3 cords shy seems like a lot?
@  Shetland She... : (27 July 2016 - 04:50 PM) Tied strings 'round a couple hunnert idiot cubes of mulch! And no, I din't waste time tedding it! ;) :rolleyes: :P
@  Vol : (27 July 2016 - 04:43 PM) @PaMike it will smoke it...but no help around beans and alfalfa.
@  Vol : (27 July 2016 - 04:41 PM) @HL649 just mowed or has it been a day or two?
@  PaMike : (27 July 2016 - 04:41 PM) We have resistant mares tail here. Wont 2,4D kill it?
@  HL649 : (27 July 2016 - 04:21 PM) tedding alfalfa
@  stack em up : (27 July 2016 - 03:36 PM) We are the only ones in a pretty big area that raise any small grain. Rest is corn and soybeans.
@  stack em up : (27 July 2016 - 03:34 PM) First Rate is commonly used here. Used to use it a lot with Fusion in beans.
@  endrow : (27 July 2016 - 03:26 PM) , they say the only thing that gets Palmer and Mare's tail and this area is a product from Dow called first-rate anybody have any experience with it
@  endrow : (27 July 2016 - 03:23 PM) We will have trouble next year on our farm the weeds are near Palmer amaranth and Mare's tail will be the problems. We will continue to use residual on the full season beans
@  endrow : (27 July 2016 - 03:19 PM) We have yet to have problems on our farm yet because we rotate out of other things and do not grow row crops year after year
@  stack em up : (27 July 2016 - 03:05 PM) Was rotating every 3 days, moving every day now. Really sucks to move drinkers all the damn time though
