Farming today requires a lot of specialized equipment, equipment that has changed so much in the past several decades. Although these machines have changed and advance so much, they still eventually break down and need to be repaired. Of course, farmers will always try to keep their equipment in tip-top shape and will constantly maintain them to keep the running and working for as long as they can. These machines still have limitations and will still reach an end to their lives. Many can see this as a big hassle because not only will they lose some productivity for a short while, they now have to buy a new machine to replace the one that just broke. But did you know, you could still make money from your broken farming equipment and machines?
Tractors are a very common machine used in farming because of the many farm implement sets that can be attached to it. However, when a tractor breaks down for good, there’s not much a farmer can do with it. Why not take that that broken tractor to a tractor salvage yard and make some money off of your old machines. Not everything breaks down so several useful parts can still be reused by others. The farm implement sets that work with could also be sold since a new tractor may not be compatible with your old farm implement.
Broken equipment and machinery is still useful, find your nearest salvage yard and turn your old wares into money for the future.
The Suez Canal crisis in the late 1950s sent the whole world into a fuel crisis. Car makers started to panic and one bright spot was the birth of Mini in 1959 in England. Ever since that time, the stylish and intelligent Mini continues to thrill driving enthusiasts. Mini is known for its fuel efficiency and as well as its smaller size. John Cooper turned Mini into a world-champion rally car.
Today, Mini caters to a wide variety of drivers. Modern day Mini family includes traditional Mini Cooper Hardtop, Mini Convertible for those who wants to fold the top, very functional and versatile Mini Clubman, roomy four-door Mini Countryman and two-seater Mini Coupe. Some of these come in all-wheel drive. Owners can expect to get 32 combined miles per gallon from many of the base models and 29 combined mpg from turbocharged models.
The sporty, fuel efficient and innovative family of Mini Coopers coined the phrase “MINImalism” that stands for doing more with less. It became a popular car in 1960s and after a brief period of absence in the U.S. returned again in 2002, stills a British car with new German engineering thanks to BMWs involvement.
The Lone Star State otherwise known as Texas is the United States No. 1 market for trucks. That may be why all major truck manufacturers including General Motors, Toyota Motor, Ford Motor, and Chrysler Group make their presence at the State Fair of Texas.
One of every five vehicles sold in Texas is a truck compared to one in eight nationwide. Texas is a thriving market for bigger and better trucks. This is why some say Texas is a testing ground for many trucks. The GM introduced a new heavy duty truck, High Country at the State Fair and will be available at the end of the year. Bestselling GM trucks in Texas include GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado. But the top seller in Texas is the nation’s best Ford F-series. Luxury trucks cost more than $40,000 and High Country will start just over $44,000. The appeal is 25 percent more chrome on the outside.
Ford F-series is a formidable contender to GM’s High Country. The ever increasing energy market and agricultural businesses are credited with creating the demand for more bigger and better trucks in Texas. GM is doing all it can to promote its trucks in Texas.
