    Re: Tractors and wood! Show your pics

    I made my own cross wedge. It only has the power to 4-way 8-10". TSC sells a 4-way that would work.

    Nice splitter and that is some saw and wood. Lots of these options weren't available in 96 when I bought my splitter and I didn't have a tractor. It does vertical as well so I can man-handle large...

  85. Re: Adding Rear View Mirrors using ClickBond technology

    Does cold matter? I want to use it to put flashers on my ROPS. The weight is not a problem or clamping. Just thought it might be too cold outside.

    409197 One reason I like a stand alone splitter. 409198 Dragged from my neighbor's house.

    I got mine from Northern tool. Bigger than I need but go big or go home. That's a great improvement. I use mine to lift big logs onto the splitter or move them around. Picks up rocks too. 409195 And...

    When I ordered mine I upgraded to the 5.5 hp Honda motor. Aside from oil changes and plugs it's been running fine since 1996 splitting 4-5 cords a year. I don't use it in cold weather; the wood is...

    Re: 9mm Ammo for Groundhogs

    If GH (AKA woodchuck) is a vegetarian why wouldn't he taste OK? I was trapping beavers with friends and when I asked why they didn't eat them, they shrugged. SO we tried it. Delicious and very lean....

    Re: Conventional oil vs synthetic oil question

    And the ironic part is this "pass through tax" (if I might call it that) is a bigger burden on people who spend a larger portion of their income, which is the middle class and lower economic classes....
  92. Backhoe Re: Log splitter vs. aux. hydraulic hookup on Yanmar LX4900

    I'd rethink the 3pt splitter. I know it seems logical. But unless you have at least 11gpm output it will be real slow. And then you can't use the tractor for anything else, like hauling logs or the...

    Re: 9mm Ammo for Groundhogs

    I have no experience with groundhogs, but when I used to shoot rabid raccoons with my 9mm with police ammo a head shot was impossible and it took more than 1 body shot to do it. I started using 00...

    Re: Conventional oil vs synthetic oil question

    I use the synthetic in the WRX cuz the manual says to. I don't want any warranty issues. Do you change the oil very frequently in your Hi RPM race cars?

    Re: Sales Tax?? Out of State Purchase.

    In NJ you pay on the net price after rebates, trade in, etc. But it's the regular sales tax rate of 7%. If you buy the car out of state or used they collect the tax at registration time. Legally if...
