But you're not taking into consideration the time saved utilizing net over twine so in same given time you could bale more bales with less fuel making even more $$$$$$$ not accounting for the depreciation deduction on income tax  :rolleyes:


I’ve said this before, the cheapest piece of machinery to run is the one you already own.

You would also have to add in the extra cost of net over twine then. And what does Mike charge himself for his time. There would be fuel savings, but minimal on a low number of bales.

I’m with Mike on this one, for $30,000 I can get off the tractor a lot of times to make up that money. In that case we can also add in his savings from not buying a gym membership. :P

I never stated or implied that Mike should spend anywhere close to $30,000 for a baler with netwrap. Besides time & fuel saved there is also less wear & tear on tractor & baler with net vs twine to the tune of around 25+%. I know I wouldn't want to return to baling with twine.

 

PLUS I was just kidding around!!

Excerpted from the 2nd paragraph of my reply above, "A new one would have a time saving advantage which I would like."

 

My depreciation allowances are about maxed out for a few more years.....but maybe someday soon! Maybe you will pass your well used baler on to me Jim and I can take in Coyote Flats when I come after it.  :) 

 

Regards, Mike

New could imply "new to you a pre-owned" baler. Sorry I'm not ready to stop baling just yet but it's getting closer everyday!! :D 

 

Besides I can just imagine if I passed my ""well used rd baler"" to you & then my old baler broke down & you lost a hay crop the amount if stress you would be under!!!

I just wouldn't feel RIGHT.  :wub:

I thought I heard a red winged blackbird yesterday. A little cool for them but definitely a sign spring is on the way! That and there was a road kill skunk yesterday, mating season for stinky kitties in this neck of the woods.

Very nice Cy.  That looks a little more spacious than the track buggies you used in the past.  Satellite TV and all?   :D

What's up with the ads today every page I go to there is a ugly woman telling me about business ownership full screen and dosen't go away when the time counts down,just ask to replay. Hope this goes away or at least they find some better looking models.

Sounds like you might need a cleaning on the computer.  Download SuperAntiSpyware.  It's free, use the free version only.  I've used it for over a decade and the biggest computer repair shop where I come from uses the free version to save customer's computers.  Then run a full, complete scan and you'll be amazed at the garbage it gets rid of.  I've never had a problem you can't fix with this!  You can donate some cash to the founder/owner if you feel like it's worth it.  I have because he's saved my butt with his program multiple times. 

Then install AdBlock.  It's worth its weight in gold and free to boot!

Have a antenna TV but it only gets one network station if lucky and a few PBS channels.I never even hooked it up this winter.I used IPad and watched some U Tube.

 

it does have microwave,stove,oven and the main thing is a furnae,lol.

 

Has a bed and a recliner in it also.

 

Has a built in fridge,open a unused hole and set food on ice under the fish house.

 

The Sno Bears on tracks I’ve been in are on guided trips,spendy outfits about $75,000 new.

Do you know if one can utilize SuperAntiSpyware when already utilizing Malwarebytes for protection?
