I think each of us have had days we wonder why we did not get anything done. Today was one of those for me. When I got up this morning I planned to cut beans all day today. WRONG. I am using a Oliver 7300 combine. I cut three acers then had the main drive belt come off. It took me an hour to get it back on. I finished the one field I was in and had a truck full. I thought to myself, go take this to the mill while they are open and then you can cut another truck full this afternoon. The trip to the mill went fine. I got back to the combine moved to another field and notice a jar lid size hole in the floor of the header. No problem I thought. I deceided I would take a peice of thin sheet metal and some self taping screws and make a tempory patch. Well that called for a trip to the hardware store, the barn for tools and a hour of time. I got that screwed into place and thought to myself, "I can cut all of this feild and maybe the next one before dark". Wrong again. I made one round and deceided I should check my patch. Not only was it gone, but I now had two holes the size of soft balls.

Upon much examination and figuring I deceided that it was best for me to let a professional weld a permanet fix on this machine firt thing Monday morning.

I was aggrevated that I did not get more cut than I did, but I was happy that no one got hurt and I did not tear up anything harder to fix.
