    What I have learned from watching the Millennial Farmer: The folks who farm are HARD working, kind-hearted, and have a passion for the land. They face CONSTANT adversity with determination to keep tilling the soil, harvesting the crops, and maintaining all the equipment. They embrace new technology for the sake of running and having a better farm operation. Farmers are good, caring neighbors. Farmers are our heritage. A simple 'thank you' doesn't seem to say enough, but it is heart-felt and sincere. Thank you to all of our farmers. ❤️️👍💪 P.S. What I said....for livestock farmers, too. 😊

    You need antigel in the tanks. Or is it just the diaphragm getting iced up?

  • Tim Woodring
    Tim Woodring 17 days ago

    You’re getting moisture in the bearings and than the water freezes cracking the bearing housing. Reason to never steam clean, or pressure wash equipment in the fall, wait till spring.

    Lots of people and experience but you WAY over torqued the hub bearing. Tapered roller bearings or Timpkin bearings on hubs are firm hand tight. You actually want to feel a few thousands play when you jerk on the wheel when mounted to the hub.

    All the breakdowns and stuff in this video must be so frustrating. I’ve been in your situation with every single one of them. But I think the most frustrating out of all of them is the propane shortage. You would think propane companies would be prepared for this with extra help on deck extra storage closer to their customers etc. I realize it’s a lot less simple than it sounds but still… Anyway keep up the good work man

    Their here also trying to get the corn out. Western Nebraska. I really think highly of your channel and what your doing. I just watched your interview 3 months ago. Can I please pass some knowledge to you. Just to help you understand what is going on with the weather. It will only take about 1 hour of you time before they totally shut him down. It mint help you as all the other farmers that look up to. Again it's on the weather. Yet still a lot of people dont understand the why yet. And as farming goes forward maybe this mint give you all a better understanding and help you for the future. Just an hour of your time all I ask. Please check out Mike Morales. He is very good at understanding the weather and why we have what we have as weather. Take care and be safe.

  • Everythingisgoingtobealright

    All summer I watch and think, I wish I was a farmer. Then I see bare hands in a windy cold field fixing a wheel bearing and I think, fuck that.

    10:55 At least he uses the right stuff to seal the wheel seal to the hub. The best silicone gasket I have found for automotive repair.

  • Douglas Cushing
    Douglas Cushing 25 days ago

    A maintenance tip - as an aircraft mechanic I've learned in order to increase the life of wheel bearings, you should spin the hub as your tightening the bearing, to prevent Brinelling... What is Brinelling you ask ? Brinelling is a process of wear in which similar marks are pressed into the surface of a moving part, such as bearings or hydraulic pistons. in other words spinning as you tighten prevents brinelling thus saves the internal raceways of a bearing to permanent damaged.

    Love the comment about cutting down the rain forest haha. I think it's funny how everybody was crying about the Amazon rain forest being on fire earlier this year talking about how it's the "world's lungs" and "the planet is being destroyed". The annual United States corn crop yields about 40% more oxygen in a year than the entire amazon rain forest does in a year. Not only that, but the ones contributing to deforestation are the developers that are buying old farmland and wooded areas and knocking down trees and clearing land to build spec houses on quarter acre lots of land. Loggers, timber companies, and investors that own timberland raise their trees like a crop and replant them after logging/clear cutting. Wooded areas that get cleared to have houses built on them do not get replanted. It's also funny about how everybody whines and cries and pitches a fit about logging and what they call deforestation while they sit in their lazy boy recliners (which are built out of wood, go figure) that is inside their 2000 square foot house (which is also made out of lumber, who woulda guessed). Kinda like the hippies that fill their cars up with gas on their way to protest a crude oil pipeline being built.

    You know Zack love your channel and I’m not one to bitch about a lot of stuff but your guises dealing with that bearing and no torque specs and other things may be the reason that you’re having so many issues with your bearings

    First of all, you need a tree magnet; not a camera magnet. Secondly, the torque spec for that spindle nut is referenced in German as guedentyte. You're welcome. 😉

    Living out here in West Texas, it's ironic that there's a propane shortage in the Midwest. We're flaring an ungodly amount of natural gas out here - partly or largely because of bottlenecks. The oversupply is so bad that the price of natural gas at the Waha Trading Hub has spiked into negative numbers several times this year. Granted, propane makes up a small percentage of natural gas, but still.

    Just found your channel and I'll be subscribing.
    Almost every farming channel I watch on youtube has broken vehicles/equipment in their videos. We know farming is extremely demanding on equipment. You would think the manufacturers would make their parts last a lot longer. But then their parts department would go out of business so I get it.
