Yeah, newer is often not better. Not only that but the equipment that is being sold nowadays probably won't be around in another 50-80 years like a lot of the gear, tractors included that we run. So what if you can do it faster, if you are leaving a lot of hay in the field it kind of defeats the purpose of making hay in the first place.

 Re: The dealer said I needed to update my equipment in reply to Inno, 06-25-2013 08:11:56  
That's kind of what I thought. The rake I was using there is the old D-EO-20 I bought at the auction a few months ago. It was made in November of 1949 but it still works good. I like using the old stuff and more importantly it's stuff that I can afford. I see everybody around using new equipment and making big payments and I just don't understand it. Although I have to admit I enjoy my seat time on my Ferguson and I enjoy some of the comments and looks I get using it and the equipment. I got some really strange comments on the disc plow, they were never popular around here and very few were ever sold in this area, but I've done made up my mind. I will not go back to moldboard plowing again. The disc plow is easier to pull and it doesn't leave the hard pan that the moldboard plow does.
