Fluent in Farm-Speak

One of the happiest parts of my day is hearing about my husband's day. I love it. But sometimes I see his mouth moving and the words just aren't making any sense.

"The new PTO shafts are really beautiful."

"The sheer bolts broke on the flywheel... the bull gears never jam. The plunger needs a shim."

"I have to replace all the springs on the pickup reel."

"The 16' header on the swather puts the windrows too far apart for the rakes."

I think it's English, but I can't tell.
