What A Day! Harvest Edition
How Did That Auger Get Bent? Ever unload grain around a corner? We don’t think it’ll work out well for this farmer. The angles are all wrong for grain flow.
So Much for a Clean Combine This combine’s tracks couldn’t keep it from getting buried in muck! Somehow, the only damage was a dent in the lower step and a bottle of soap.
Clipped Corner Leads to Calamity Rushing to the grain truck, this tractor and gravity fl ow wagon turned too tightly, clipping a sprayer tender tank. The right front corner of the wagon was crushed, as well as the employee’s hopes for getting off work early.
No Solid Ground to be Found While out in the fi eld, the ground gave way under this farmer’s grain cart. Thankfully there was no damage to the wagon or hitch.
Don't Rock the Boat When this tractor and grain cart stumbled upon a sinkhole, nearly 1,000 bu. of wheat poured back down onto the field. Hey driver, you forgot your Wheaties!
Son’s First Load Something went wrong as this young farmer pulled his fi rst haul from the fi eld. It ended with two empty grain carts and a ticket for “failure to yield.”
Left! No, Your Other Left! In a hurry to get to shelling, this farmer moved the irrigation the wrong direction and right into his combine.
Up in Flames There are all kinds of challenges that can cause harvest to come to a screeching halt. Two days after this farmer made his final payment, his combine caught fire. Combine shopping wasn’t on his to-do list.
