Where are the T3 and T4 made these days? I can't really keep it straight. I thought they were still produced in the US or Mexico. The various CNH companies have been mostly owned by Fiat and the Agnellis for over two decades, so that's nothing new.

I think my girlfriend ghosted me or just died. Not sure which one. 2 weeks without contact.

E: Not sound like too negative, I did reach out her best friend if she could ask how she is, we're not in the same country and I know she can be challenging to reach when things are rough. I love her, she knows that, we've been seeing for roughly 2 years, I just wanted to vent out the worst case scenario just to make sure it isn't that.

All manufacturers lock the emissions control systems down. Any part besides emissions related components you can replace with JD. They even display the trouble codes on the monitors inside. The locking things and slowing tractors down if they ignore emissions codes is every manufacturer with dpf/scr systems, and even ford, chevy and ram trucks. Its expensive. (Deletes available for most of them)

The thing about JD - you can still go to the dealer and get parts for your 4020. And they stock a lot of stuff too, so it wonít be down for months. Last year I broke a three point stabilizer on my mahindra. The selling dealer was closed by mahindra and started selling massey in its place. You canít order mahindra parts online because the dealers have regions they are allowed to service. So I had to go to a dealer an hour away, give them the part number, pay for it, wait for it to arrive, pay shipping on pickup. Major pain in the rear end and one of my fields sat all winter with broom sedge on it because I couldnít finish bush hogging after that month long setback. Ive got an accepted offer on a 97 acre parcel, 50-60 or so needs to be baled and or mowed. Hay canít sit on the field while parts come slow boat from china (or italy).

And a bit of soapbox: If you believe the big grain guys about how much money they loose tillable wouldnít be 10k an acre and they wouldnít be getting millions worth of new equipment every other year. They get more government assistance than anyone. poo poo, if you buy enough seed some of the seed companies will give you a new combine lease. Kickbacks and assistance galore. Small operations are a different story, I get that. But guys farming 10,000 acres and farms milking 38,000 cows are fine.

Aww, so I had my slant on. Lay off me!


I posted about this last month or the month before but it got lost in the Covid talk, but I'm looking into getting a battery electric mower and was curious if anyone here had any experience with them.

I was set on the Kobalt 80V self-propelled mower but the new 2020 Ego mower, while only 56V has a 7.5 amp/hr battery and a double blade cutting deck a la Honda which I'm now leaning to because I mulch 99% of the time.

I can't find the amp hour rating for the Kobalt but it claims a longer run time. Does voltage matter that much that I'll be giving up mulching power if I go for the Ego, or is amp/hour the better measure of power?

Iím not talking about emissions on tractors. Iím talking about the major electronics systems. Look up the Motherboard article on JD vs. Right To Repair.
I really donít give a poo poo about what sort of farmer they are or what kickbacks they get, requiring factory mechanics only can eat a dick regardless.

Anyway, Iím sitting at home in the dark. About 4-4:30 the power started flickering and then blinked hard a few times, mit spitzen sparken outside. I figured the gusting wind blew the lines into the trees (both just the other side of my fence) or vice versus. Then I noted one of the trees trunks smoking near the top. *Then* I noticed the line dangling from the pole just off the corner of my lot. The other end managed to zap a few more times behind my neighbor to the rightís yard before settling down.

We both called Oncor to report the downed line. It took them until 6 to kill the power. With a notice that it would be expected out until 4:30 am. Nice. I canít game. Iím canít sleep, and neither can my wife (we both use CPAPs). And I have yet to see a loving truck out there. Good job, wait until dark you shits. Meanwhile, my neighbor to the left still has power, and is having their semi weekly family noisy party in their back yard with like a 100-bulb string of lights over their deck.
Got some LEDs and a couple hurricane lanterns.

At least the plumbers finished the plumbing. Still some details and closing the walls, but the plumbing is now functional, and Iím happy with the work that was done.

I hope power is back tomorrow. I need to get started on repairs to the bottom of the kitchen cabinets and drywall work everywhere else.

We did at least go have dinner at Chiliís, since Phase 1 of relaxed restrictions started today. Wouldnít have bothered if the power was not out, but didnít want to eat in the dark.

gently caress this Subaru Outback. Absolutly completey and utterly gently caress IT. I hate this car, I hate that it is in my garage, I hate every single particle of it and I wish I had never seen the loving thing in my life

I have spent three weeks trying to get this thing to start - I have today replaced the harness FOR NO GODDAMN RESULT. It is ruining my brain. I have spent I dont know how much. I am angry, I'm having meltdowns and honestly right now the only thing I can think of is that something is fundamentally wrong internally but I cant see what it is as I'm sure it's got spark, it's got fuel and it has enough compression that it should at least run a bit.

Nothing. Absolutly goddamn loving nothing. I have also changed every sensor in the car for known working ones.

I loving HATE this car. I hate it with a passion I havent hated something before. I want the owner to take it back because there is no way I want to even spend another second trying to work out waht the ever living gently caress is going on.

Same dumbass cosmetic style ban the US let lapse a few years ago too, aimed at 'military rifles' wherein such is designated based on what makes them feel apprehensive to look at. In a country with about as many shooting deaths per year as Chicago.

I understand the desire for safety, but it'd be great if they'd stop treating knowledge of guns as suspect when deciding what's too dangerous to own.

I have little problem with making laws, or even banning things if the government is honest about and has some even some most basic sense of logic.

But using terms/buzzwords such as "military grade", "assault rifle" which are literally, meaningless.. and I say this honestly. What does that even mean with firearms? Made by the lowest bidder? Made to fire military calibers? Black in color? Pieces of plastic? Literally who knows. "Scary looking and black in color" would make more sense... although there are tons of exceptions of course.

Bizarrely, the Canadian Government appears to have been very thorough in making various, even very obscure firearms prohibited which can probably be counted on by 1 hand in the country, by the stroke of a pen, but basically any bull-pup style firearm (thinking the IWI Tavor and Norinco Type 97) are spared

In true Canadian fashion, makes literally zero sense.

Oh well... I'll give this more thought when I'm not 6 ryes deep into the night.

I finally managed to get a ryobi 36v mower last week (the only thing sold by a store within 50km of where I live, even then it took two months before it was actually in stock). I've only used it to mow the lawn once so far but it handled the 2 months of growth that built up while waiting for the thing to arrive. I stalled it once by overloading the mower and had a bit of drama getting it to start till I realised it had some safety lockouts that I needed to pay attention to. Beyond that it's fine for my usage (~130m2 yard). As it's the only cordless mower I've used I can't really compare it to any other brand/model.

Canada already doesn't have 30 round mags from an AR15. Breaking that law on that is like bringing in a rocket launcher. It's already illegal as hell, totally prohibited device. Making it double-double-dare illegal isn't going to do gently caress all. A mass murder spree with an AR is literally just as deadly with a T97 or any other number of truly legal, and more popular and available firearms. Canadians are not killing Canadians with 30 round AR mags. It simply isn't an issue.

I am totally on the side for reasonable gun control, as are a shocking number of Canadian SA firearm owners, but all anyone is asking for is some sanity and logic. Making up "facts" and twisting them into some mantra isn't helping anyone EXCEPT potentially the far right wing that truly seem to be the only people that disagree with this poo poo for 9 times out of 10 the wrong reasons (or use logic when it suits them).

Yeah, but on the balance y'all don't share 5500 miles of open border with the US.

As slidebite points out, this ban is one of those that literally only affects legal gun owners. Criminals already have weapons outside of the registration scheme and aren't going to care about another crime on paper, and mass shootings are suicide attacks in the first place, so another charge doesn't much matter to someone who doesn't expect to live though the day.

Double-digit millions of dollars of buyback and making thousands of people paper felons to take weapons out of circulation that are involved in double-digit numbers of deaths per year.
