In this episode, Dave Mowitz visits the Gerstacker farm shop in Midland, Michigan.  The heart of the Gerstacker shop is an extensive fabrication bay.  The shop also boasts a dual hoist system with both an overhead crane and a swinging jib crane.  Besides the large work area, there is a maintenance bay with an oil changing pit.

In All Around the Farm, we see a farmer built cattle feed bunk scraper that hooks up to a skid steer. Also, learn about an idea to protect tractor and implement electrical connections by connecting them inside an inexpensive tool-box. Finally, never forget that you've drained your vehicles engine oil by leaving a wrench on the seat.

The Ultimate ATV/UTV Test examines the Arctic Cat Prowler XT 640 in the mountains of the Little Goose Ranch in Wyoming.


Laurie looks at the Millermatic 140 Mig and flux-cored welder with Auto-Set in Cool Tools. Visit the Miller website to learn more.

In Hot Iron Laurie takes a close look at the 4730, 4830, 4930 series self-propelled sprayers from John Deere. Visit the John Deere website to learn more.



  Machinery Pete explains the important part that geography plays in the used farm machinery market. We see that auction prices on Case IH 2166 combines can very greatly depending on where it sold.

Finally, Roger Welsch explains the idea behind Tractor Whispering.
