Very nice! We need a new one on the farm soon and I hope we can find a nice one like that!

Yes Brian, Will is correct, those were taken in Three Rivers at Fillmores. I don't get to see iron that big on the farms around here. It's pretty wild to see the operations around there and in Indiana.

Thanks, but we will be looking used. We just don't have the acreage to support that large of a purchase. :unknown:
The 9510 is used. Should not be too pricey, depending on hours. I hear ya on the prices, incredible for sure!!

I wonder why the right rear tire is backward? More traction in reverse?:lol:

It is RWA (rear wheel assist). Pretty sure they do that so you don't tear the ground up. That is fairly common on RWA equipment like that. (forage harvesters and the like.)

Almost all of the combines in my territory are RWA. None of them have the tires reversed. You say it helps to reduce turf damage when turning? I have never heard of this. You learn something everyday.:thumbup1gif:

I see a lot of it up here. The euro immigrants do it, on RWA addition equipment, and some do it on FWA tractors.

Lugged tires, R-1's are mounted "backwards" when used on non-driving wheel applications. They wear longer that way, same as they wear longer mounted normally on driving wheel applications.

R-1 tires are mounted "backwards" on ground driven equipment like manure spreaders, like this little guy.

I've always wanted one of those but sort of impracticable for this area.
They are made for operations like yours with a couple horses. Your wife or daughter would have no problem running it. Or doesn't the great leader of New York allow manure to be spread on the ground? :dunno:

Some folks up the road from me have one for their indoor arena. It looks like a great idea, they pull it with an ATV or riding mower. I priced one at Murdoch's and it was a little over $1,800 though. You could buy a full sized one for less than that.

Most of the time I give the manure away or sell it, too many weed seeds to spread it. I also like the convenience of being able to unload via a PTO without moving the spreader.
