    Re: Nor'easter

    We had a little wind, gusts maybe 50mph (if that) and a few inches of rain. It did hang around 33 F for a while, but it never froze. It was pretty much a non event here. Hope others fared as well.

    Very rarely. Most of the time I just shuttle shift into neutral, pause, then reverse. But if I am forcing my way into a pile, there are times when I do modulate the power with the foot throttle. I...

    Re: Shuttle Pause

    Martin ,


    I don't think so. I own a L3710 GST and I do a lot of loader work with it. I give it about a half second pause in neutral. If I push it to fast, it will give me a little "grind"!

    Egon,

    I am sure your blade works fine on your soil. But hear in Maine things can be a little different. Here are some shots of a few trails I am restoring on my property. I don't think easygo...

    easygo,


    If your land is anything like mine, a back blade will be all but useless for the trails, I know, I have watched others try! If you have the time, a box blade and FEL will work. If...

    Backhoe Re: backhoe

    I have a Koyker FEL. I am very happy with it. If I were in the market for a new BH I would not hesitate buying a Koyker if it met my needs / specs.


    Good luck,

    Re: Weld on bucket teeth - advice wanted

    I do not think it would cost you all that much for the extra piece of steel and two extra welds (ok four extra welds if you count both sides!) to make a "tooth bar". In the long run you will be much...
