    The gated community issue.

    I have gates across my driveway. But they are not locked - they are to keep out stray livestock. Nevada is an "Open Range" state - which means if you don't want livestock on your property then it is YOUR responsibility to fence the livestock out.

    The gated community issue.

    Same where I live. The Post Office does not deliver to individual homes in this area. There is a bank of mail boxes in one location where everyone for several miles has to pick up their mail. For me, it's close enough that I walk it, just for the exercise. On the way I walk past one of my...

    why so many jeeps now on road?

    Jeep Wrangler owner for many, many years. Current is a TJ Rubicon, lifted, 4.10 gears and 33" tires. I maintain an Excel spreadsheet for all my vehicles that calculates actual fuel mileage - I've yet to find a dash display that is really accurate. That Excel spreadsheet tells me my Rubicon...

    M7060 Stalls when PTO is Turned On

    ^ This is exactly how I do it. Not because just turning the switch on would stall the tractor - it did not - but just to ease the shock on the components. You're talking about taking a stationary heavy mass to instantly rotating that mass at a couple hundred rpm if you just flip the switch on...

    Where are all my birds?

    Oosik, I got a shot of some of "your" flock heading south yesterday. I was standing in the mountains at about 7500' elevation when I heard the honking and looked up to see this. They were WAY up there - this is a telephoto shot. But I don't ever recall seeing two small V formations within one...

    Regen Issues

    With about 530 hours on my M7060 there have been no problems whatsoever. Only way I know regen is going on is if I look down and see the light on in the dash.

    Why do we keep driving to far away stores that are understocked, understaffed and don't care?

    Porch pirates work in areas where the public road runs right next to houses. Where I live the public road is a LONG way from my house - one of the reasons I chose to build where I did. No one comes up my driveway unless they are invited. And out here in rural Nevada the Sheriff and DA have no...

    Farm UTV/RTV Purchase

    I have a 2020 cab model Can-am Defender HD10 (1000cc). There is NO governor on it, and on the Defender forums I frequent no one has mentioned one. They have mentioned that the stock Defender will do about 62 mph. So if yours has a governor it is not OEM.

    Farm UTV/RTV Purchase

    Exactly. I have a couple pickups - and a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. All great rigs but too big and TOO HEAVY for a lot of situations. The Rubicon is ~ 5,000lb and the pickups - even the aluminum F150 - are a lot more. My Can-am Defender is under 2,000lb, even with a full cab on it. With those...

    F150 on Moab Jeep trails?

    30+ years ago...when I was a "young" man in my late 40s I did the White Rim Trail, from Mineral Bottom all the way around and then up the Shafer Switchbacks, on a Honda XL500. Easy trip on a dirt bike, really. Not far from the Shafer switchbacks I saw someone staggering ahead of me. I mean...
