Just to say hi?

Don't most bosses? Anyway, he'd probably been calling from 03.30, but the line was busy to Jay.

Boss called at 4:10 am Eastern Standard Time. Called with instructions on what contracts to head to first.
I was fast asleep when he called.

The forward view...
The orange handle on the left is the shuttle valve - forward and reverse control, with neutral in the middle. Auto clutch on it.
The orange 1 at the bottom on the speedometer is the gear indicator (1-4)

Gear shifter. This has a button controlled electronic clutch for shifting A-F.
Throttle control to the left of it. I don't use this as I am constantly changing speeds. I use the orange throttle pedal on the floor instead. If I set the minimum throttle with the slider, the pedal control will not go below that setting.

The joystick.
Buttons 5 and 7 are transmission control - 5 shifts up, 7 shifts down (1-4), auto clutch.
The other buttons control other hydraulic circuits that aren't used on the plow. I do wish the wing controls were on the joystick instead of on the console.
The part I'm holding back with my finger is the lockout. If it's not open, with the green light on, the joystick will be shutoff. Protects against accidental movements.

The main info screen. At 5:04 this morning the engine temperature was -9C
This is all touch screen.

My 2 year old, almost 3 year old broke my 55" 4k smart tv tonight by repeatedly hitting it with some pool toy. My wife and I were busy cleaning things in the kitchen as the 17 y.o. and 10 y.o. just yelled at him to stop hitting the tv. Question is, whose fault is it?

Parents for buying the tv last year?
Small child for beating the tv?
2 other children who witness said abuse and did nothing but issue verbal directives that failed?

I'm perplexed.

The answer is so simple. Don't replace the TV, at least for a good long while.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Attempting to use a tractor like this without any prior experience would be daunting.

Having grown up using farm equipment, and learning new systems as they come out, makes it a lot easier to figure this all out. And it all relates to my skill sets. The touch screen with all the custom controls has just consolidated a lot of manual controls. And it cleans up the DIC, so there's less gauges needed there.

The transmission controls would probably be the most confusing for someone to figure out on their own.
