    Re: Arc Welder Breaker

    You can run it on 30A but may not be able to use the higher settings.

    Re: tractor for maximum traction

    I guess it all depends on what we use our tractors for. For bigtime ag tillage, maybe a little slip is better.

    For me towing a trailer of wood through a field, grading out some dirt, doing FEL...

    Re: 11 Million Dollar Home / Only One Welding Plug

    Best ZTR for $3k-$4k IMO is a used commercial grade unit. Scag, Exmark, Hustler, Bobcat, Bunton, Toro, etc. Many out there.
