Unplugging the Hoses

 Farmer Fred has been using the Concord Air Till Drill to apply fertilizer to the Bean ground. With so many hoses, an occasional plug is inevitable. 
A bit of dampness can gather the fertilizer into a clump.
 Which caused the plug.
 When applying fertilizer, Farmer Fred carries fertilizer in both tanks.
When the cover is removed, it is easy to see which hose is plugged and why. 
So, Farmer Fred gets out a handy tool and scrapes the crusty build up away.
 He will loosen as much as he can with his knife.
Farmer Fred then turns the air system on the drill which blows out the hoses in a puff of air. 
The plug is gone and after the cover is replaced, he will be ready to go in GriggsDakota.
