    Chipper Woodmaxx WM-8H on mobile base?

    My Victory 8H is on a dolly I made from the shipping fixture. Supports the unit just fine-suppose you could put the legs down too.

    Case 580c dead instrument cluster- Anybody familiar with this machine?

    I can’t recall for sure if the c has the same crappy gauge panel as the d that I have but if it does it is very common for the gauge panel to fail because the ribbons and board fail. I replace all of the gauges, panel and connectors and have never had a problem since.

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    About 3 years now-have a lot of experience with pressure tank systems and much prefer this.

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    With the constant pressure valve you get all the the benefits of the VFD without all the added cost and complexity. I have run my pump off of my generator. So I still have water and most everything else when power goes out. My system shown below. CycleStop valve is red item in photo

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    Not sure what you are asking-if you’re asking about the ‘drive’ part of a VFD well pump-I don’t have a VFD pump-the constant pressure valve (CycleStop) valve is used with a standard constant speed motor.

    My Industrial Cabin Build

    I have the constant pressure valve system from CycleStop on my Grundfos well pump. It does have a tank (I have the optional larger tank on mine) that you draw from for low demand (less than 0.5 hon iirc) until the pressure drops below cut-in at which time it will refill. At higher demand you get...

    MT357H vs MT357HC

    I would echo what Avenger has said about his cab. I have the 4155HC and my property ( which isn’t all that far from Avengers) is wooded and hilly. I bash through the limbs pretty frequently when mowing and have yet to scratch/damage a window. I have more than a few scratches on the hood and a...

    Bathroom in the shop

    I suspect the ‘permit’ you are referring to is the well log that is filled out by the well driller and submitted to the state for recording purposes. The county health department also gets a copy along with the water quality test report prior to issuing either a COO or (in my case) a septic...

    Bathroom in the shop

    The idiotic thing was that it overturned 150 years of western water law precedence and all of the lower court rulings which consistently held for the original application of water law for permit exempt domestic wells. Additionally the ruling basically put the onus on counties ( and thus on the...

    Bathroom in the shop

    A couple of years back the Hirst decision effectively killed building permit issuance in Growth Management Act counties (King, Pierce, Snohomish, Spokane) where the building permit relied on a Permit Exempt Domestic Well for water. Spokane county allowed you to grandfather your well under the...

    how deep can I run a subsoiler (for running pipe) with ck2610

    Couldn’t have done mine without my 580E. Layer of decomposed (and not so decomposed) granite at about 28-32”. Not getting through that layer without it.

    how deep can I run a subsoiler (for running pipe) with ck2610

    At least on this part of WA- unincorporated Spokane County at ~3400’ elevation, I was required to bury my lines 18” below frost depth (24” around here). So 42”. I trenched ( with a construction backhoe) to a minimum of 48”. Knock on wood- no line freeze so far.

    Bathroom in the shop

    Put a 3/4 bathroom in my shop when I built it a few years back- had to put my newly drilled well into ‘beneficial use’ as a result of an idiotic WA state Supreme Court decision on domestic wells. I also did the laundry add as it keeps really grimy work clothes out of the house laundry room...

    Building a barn to live in- interesting article

    At least out here if you permitted and built it as a ‘non accessory storage building’ or in non code parlance ‘a barn, shed, shop or other non living space’ and then converted it to a partial or full living space you’d be setting yourself up for claim denial if you ever had a loss. I originally...

    Anyone out there Have a Mini-Split Heat/Ac unit?

    I have 2 units one Mitsubishi unit installed in our current residence (16k btu unit used to heat/cool master suite and upstairs bedroom) and a Mr Cool DIY 36k btu unit I installed in my 2400 sf shop building. Very happy with performance of both units. The DIY unit was less than 1/2 the cost of...
