    Trying to find and old thread- google earth with property lines

    A few years ago, someone posted a link to a website that had a google earth database that would over-lay actual property line boundaries. I thought I had it saved but I can't find it. Anyone remember it, have a link or have another similar one? Thanks!

    Ferris IS4500 Diesel- anybody own one?

    I found a pretty good deal on one. So, I'm thinking about selling my IS3000 that I bought pretty cheap (not much difference in price). I keep reading on the internet about not being able to see what you are cutting around- the edge of the deck when you are trying to edge up against something...

    I've been in contact with a US 200 geotextile fabric distributer. Their rolls are 432' long, 12.5' wide and $360 per roll+ tax. Are there other brands I should consider? Is there a better quality product out there? I really don't want to cheap out on this. I have to live with it for the...

    JD 450C Clutch Housing Oil Change??

    Ok, I've changed just about all of my fluids in the 450C. However, even with the book, I just don't understand how to change the clutch housing fluid. I see what looks like two drain plugs but I can't seem to locate the fill hole for each side. Any ideas?

    Flail Mower Mott/Alamo Parts: gear box

    I have my 88" flail mower that's fine. However, I keep twisting the drive-shaft I got from Tractor Supply. I don't have a slip clutch, the belt has worked quite well for that!;) There is a local tractor shop that has an 88" offset Flail pretty much just like the one I have. The gear box is...

    Well, after taking Eddie's advice I bought a dozer.;) I looked at 350's, D6's, Internationals, Allis Chalmers, Komatsu, and D8's but finally decided on a 450C for various reasons but mainly parts. I see parts all over the internet and we know ole' guys up in the hollows that have them sitting...

    Redecking a Trailer- where's the thread that had tips?

    I found it.....never mind.....was looking in the wrong section! There was a thread about redecking a trailer and someone posted about wedging as many as you can in at an angle and then on the last two using a 4x4 and a hefty buddy to "bow" them in to place..... I'd like to reread it before I...

    I went and bought this on Saturday....... It's an Arctic Cat Prowler XTZ 1000cc...... The factory won't release a HP # but claim it produces 188ft lbs. of torque!:eek: Honestly, with the power it has, it's more like a mini-sand rail......it's unreal how it'll get up and go. I've run it up to...

    Seat with arms, tool box- help!

    I stopped to look at a TC40 gear tractor today. I'm thinking it is an 03 or older, it has the older style hood (which I actually like better, as far as looks). My wife's uncle is interested in it and wanted me to check it out. While looking at it, it seemed to have a lot of extras. What I...
