Thought for the Week

"What the mind can conceive, it can achieve." Napoleon Hill

Grain bin incidents don't just happen to dummies
Prairie Farmer
The dummy won't feel anything if he's submerged in corn. Besides, the "dummy" is attached by a harness so he can be rescued right before the corn takes him under. This scene is a mock rescue training for firefighters and students that occurred a while back. It was part of a program put on by Steve Wettschuranck and the Purdue University Extension safety effort, headed by Bill Field. Steve has trained so many fire departments both in and outside of Indiana that there aren't any trainings scheduled this fall. That's not because the topic is no longer important, it's because so many volunteer fire departments and rescue units that want the training have already received it.

Winterize your mower now so it works in the spring
Consumer Reports
Once you’ve paid the typical $1,500 to $4,000 for a lawn tractor or zero-turn-radius rider, you want to make sure you maintain it well enough for the machine to last the expected 20 years. These tips from Peter Sawchuk, Consumer Reports’ chief tester of outdoor power equipment, will help keep your machine running well through next season. If this is your annual tune-up, there are other things that need occasional attention or replacement. For example, some components of the steering mechanism come with grease fittings, as your manual will identify; add grease using a small grease gun. Your air filter needs swapping out about once a year. So does your fuel filter, though you’ll need to clamp off the fuel line to do this without spraying yourself with gas.

Trailed beet harvesters fight back
Farmers Weekly
You might think that beet harvesting contractors only buy giant self-propelled six-row (or even 12-row) machines. Well, Norfolk contractor SC & GM Savory has just bought a new trailed machine – a type that isn’t much seen on UK fields these days. The Edenhall 753, may be tractor-pulled but it is packed with much the same technology found on larger harvesters. Basic configuration is a three-row lifter with hydrostatically driven oppel wheels, although walking shares are an option.

How crawler dozers became infinitely more versatile when stripped of their gears
Equipment World
Once known as one of the more difficult earthmoving machines to master, the crawler dozer­­, with the right technology, has become one of the easiest to run. The difference? In just 10 years, hydrostatic transmissions have come to dominate dozers in the under-130 horsepower class. That combined with GPS machine control have turned what was once a bucking mule of a machine into a smooth mover that can take down mountains or skim the last few millimeters of dirt off the site as well as any motor grader.

Get ready for robot farmers
Precision Farming Dealer
On most lettuce farms, workers weave between rows to cull extra heads of lettuce crowding out the healthiest plants. The practice, called thinning, is labor-intensive and a labor shortage has made it difficult to find workers for the task. In 2011, Jorge Heraud and Lee Redden came up with the idea to use robotics to mechanize lettuce thinning as part of their coursework in Stanford's executive MBA program. "Mention robotics in agriculture and people think it's R2D2 and C3PO going into the field, but that's not quite what we do," says Heraud, the former head of precision agriculture for GPS tech giant Trimble Navigation.

3-D printing parts, tools a decade away from you
Agriculture.com
Three-dimensional printing may be closer to reality on your farm than you might think. Local Motors, an AZ-based company drawing upon the work and ideas of scores of engineers, has released its Strati, a 3-D-printed car. While not every piece of the vehicle — which more resembles a dune buggy than a standard automobile — is "printed," the majority of its body and mechanical parts were produced using this new process. The company's engineers are also working on new ways to use the technology for vehicle manufacturing in new ways, some that could have major implications for farmers and some of the tools and implements they use every day.
