Fundamentals and Safety 2014

We got 36 students for the Class of 2016 off to a good start. They endured a couple days of orientation and we have been working with Service ADVISOR, metric conversions and tools. In the shop we have started moving wheels, checking out new tractors and disassembling combines. Here are a few pictures.

John Deere Tech 2014

Well another year has past and it is time to say goodbye and good luck to another class. It seems like only yesterday that this group started but two years have passed and its time they move on to new adventures.
We look forward to the chance to meet again.

Alex 4.5L

This was the first time this little 4.5L was apart. In its former life it was used on a wood chipper. It was a little rusty inside for setting for several years. It has a Lucas rotary pump on it that needs to be timed with a light after it is started. It may be small but it can still hold up that big chrome stack.
