2/9 -All Crop Harvestor and Roto-baler seminar: If you have never wished to have the chance to see and hear Gary Agrimson lecturing the history of the roto-baler...well your wish has been answered. Gary's lecture lasts for about 22:00 minutes...At that point, Arland Lepper gives the training session of the Living History of the All-Crop Harvester. After Arland has finished his lecture, the video continues with a few minutes of the activities of the 2013 Orange Spectacular...Click on the link below and ......ENJOY
There is only one (1) glitch....the video starts about ten (10) minutes into the lecture.....To take the video to the beginning, slide the "dot", just above the timer, on the lower left side of the the video frame, left click/hold and drag to the left to start at the beginning....I have tried to change settings and I can't figure out what went wrong as the video starts at the ten (10) minute plus mark. NICE JOB GARY AND ARLAND!!!
