Doing some maintenance on my John deere 336 by replacing a few bearings, ajjusting the plunger, new pick up times, and chains and while I had it apart figured I would go ahead and sand it down a little and give it a new paint job.



Finished painting and custom decals on my John deere 336 baler.

Back when we had silos the 70 footers first silo unloader had a lot of big parts and I would go up the outside ladder and hoist the part up with a pulley and then shove the part threw the roof door and the lower the part down to the using  the same rope  and pulley. 

Did you do away with silos Endrow? You go to trench? It seams people either love or hate upright silos...

Wrong shade of green, but its still purty. 

Around here our landlords would want more money as they would think we could afford a new baler therefore must be flush with cash.

Sure SCtrailrider. Just do it before April , the Refueling Outage at VC Summer starts then and I will be working 6 days or nights a week for 2 months. Or wait until June and see haymaking in action I hope.

Yea the pic make the color look a little off it is OEM John Deere AG green from dealer which is the the shade painted on all John deere tractors from like 1990 on. So yea it is still the wrong color it was originally John Deere classic green but figured I would paint it the new color due to all the replacement parts are painted in Ag green now that is also why I painted the pick up green and figured while I was at it I might as well put decals on it that matched the newer balers.

Love the jack with the WHEEL. 

Man I need those on some of my implements!

However, whenever I go to buy one, I always think the wheel is too small or might break on a heavy attachment like a baler or a 15' batwing??

Or sink in soft ground

Yea they help out quite a bit when trying to move stuff around my shop without hooking tractor up to it. I just add a universal wheel to my factory jacks seams to be a little stronger that way but still not the best.

Never had to do that hope I never have to. If its something big either make it work till to the bottom doors or pitch with a silage fork. Always do preventive maintence when they are at the bottom. We did take the blower off the silo-matic we had at the time in the 16ft lowered via rope down the chute about four doors so we could weld a bead on the ends of the paddles cause they were so worn it wouldn't blow the silage. Then hoisted it back up... I really dont miss days like that. Some of the best days were taking out old unloaders and replacing with much better ones

Our small silo did not have a permanent unloader. After silo was full we would pull the individual pieces up the shoot and assemble and when empty disassemble. It was only 14 wide so pitching wasn't to bad.

LOL. I was referring to more it’s not Oliver Meadow Green and Clover White ;) 

It’s still a pretty baler though.

Makes me have dreams of sugar plums; that's second on my wish list. Gonna bust open the piggy bank in the spring and build another barn. If there is enough fat left in the ol' hog, skid steer is next.

A few of the projects this winter......

This is the Perkins engine (1000 series phaser) out of my JCB 520 Tele......seems the water and oil water to intermingle. Thought the problem was with the head, no such luck......it is a common problem on these engines. If you run with little to no glycol, the water will corrode by electrolysis where he two dissimilar metals meet....not s good pic, but as you can see, it had definately been run with just water, probably creek water :o had to remove engine to do necessary repairs. Back in the machine now and performing excellent. Went ahead and replaced water pump while we were there....love this little machine

Those timing marks are courtesy of my daughters fingernail polish :o. She wasn't happy
