    Buying a new truck ? Times have changed.

    I bought a new Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 dual cab High Lift in July last year. I was lucky. It came into the dealer the day I saw it and the bloke that ordered it had changed his mind. It was the color I wanted too. They offered it to me for Au $61,000. I said if you make it $58,000 we have a deal...

    Why is my flail mower binding all the time?

    Sounds like some of the stuff I have to cut. Keep the revs up and go slow in stuff that tall and watch your radiator doesn't get clogged driving through tall stuff like that. I have to clean mine regularly. I watch my temp guage. As soon as it is above normal I stop and clean. Even sharp blades...

    Good morning!!!!

    Kyles making me feel bad. I have to wash the Ranger and the 'speedy red car' too but can't find the energy today. I took the Mustang to the city today and bought some new shoes and socks then some lunch and some mince at the butcher on the way home. Going to sleep typing this and it's not even...

    Good morning!!!!

    Spent the night at my daughters last night as I had promised I would after she got her new home. Had a good night with some of her friends arriving for a session. Had to come home about 7.30 a.m. as my wife and I had appointments for 4th alligatoritis shots. Needed sleep after I got back from...

    Good morning!!!!

    We had a cold 11.4 C this morning but a beautiful 22.4 right now with a slight breeze. Wish it would stay like this year round. Must be something about Tassie Wagtail. Some friends are moving down there at the moment (Burnie area I think) and a couple from my club were down there a few weeks...

    Good morning!!!!

    seems every day (or at least every second day) lately requires a trip to the city. Can't get any real work done at all. I got a letter from the hospital saying they are going to operate on 2 fingers and one thumb, BUT, it may take 12 months before they can do it. grrr. Geez, I waited 20 months...

    What have you hit with your mower lately?

    I have just repaired my flail mower after it hit a low stump and bent the main shaft. Normally the hammers would jump the stump but I had just sharpened them and 1 hammer dug into the stump like an axe. A new shaft cost me about $1100 so it was a costly lesson. The mower is only about 4 years...

    Good morning!!!!

    Sorry to hear of the loss of your buddy LS. Having worked for Emergency Services for 21 years I am fully aware of the comradeship built up over the years. In fact a group of us, all retired, are having a get together next week for old times sake. Sadly we have lost several amongst us as well. A...

    Good morning!!!!

    Those wattles drive me nuts. They don't live long and are always falling on my fences. I have found that the branches are very hard and they last longer in the aviary with the parrots than most other timbers. So I guess they do have one good point.

    CK3510SE HST shifting issue

    Mine has been like that since 2006. It is normal. You need to rock the Fwd/Rev pedal to take the load off the gears to shift it. (Preferably with foot on the clutch I should add.)

    Good morning!!!!

    Been through the horses 'thing' LOL Hook the trailer up every 2 -3 weeks and go pick up haybales. Luckily it was my wifes thing and not mine. I didn't envy her going out to feed every night rain hail or shine and worse if we got home late. She commented the other day that she doesn't know how...
