Yep, that sounds like a day in the life of us Ag folk. I started today trying to lay down 2nd cut alfalfa. First I made some cuts where I was going to park the sprinkler....that's when the fun started. Sprinkler moved a short distance & stopped...worn out center drive motor gearbox. No problem, I had a spare....an hour later ready to run. Start her up and the another tower had a very noisy gearbox. I was standin' there hopin' she would move far enough that I could get back to cutting. No such luck....70 mile round trip and two hours of installation time LATER, I finally got her moved.
What should have taken 15 minutes took all day. Oh well, better luck tomorrow, for you and me.
