75 HP Forecart, 4 Horses abreast, cutting hay

As we fill this page with information I will insert photos of different pieces of machinery
 we already use on our farm. At the end of that we will list the pages from the
 Pioneer Equipment Catalogue.

   We will also identify other pieces of machinery from other manufacturers that we use on the farm. We also use "vintage" equipment that works as is or we have modified to work, some we own, some borrowed .

cutting hay with 9' discbine
We were first introduced to Pioneer Equipment about 10 years ago when we attended our very first Horse Progress Days.  Because of that experience we chose to incorporate our Belgian horses and our mules into helping work the farm & land. It has been a very rewarding endeavour and we continue to learn about & add new equipment as it becomes available.
In these pictures Kim is cutting hay with 4 horses
abreast pulling him on the 4 wheeled motorized 75hp forecart from Pioneer. It will handle every-thing that our 75hp White tractor did. The forecart
has Hydraulic Crab steering ( all 4 wheels turn)
which keeps you on your row with very little effort.
Cart has crab steering for row accuracy

Mulching seed bed
Helping work a friends market
garden with a multi cultivator from
Shipshewana Farm Supply in
Indiana. It leaves a fabulous seed
bed for planting. You can get it in
many widths. We used this one
between the rows of our Pick-Your-
Own Garden for weed control.

                                                     At left horses are attached directly
            to a vintage Hohn Deere K spreader we use for the house garden. At right Kim uses the
