    Harbor Freight Tools that DO SUCK II

    I'm going to go ahead and say the 16" Atlas 40v chainsaw DOES suck. I only bought it for a quick utility job and I wanted it quieter than my trusty Stihl because I was along somebody else's property line. It ain't any quieter than a small gas Home Depot saw (I'll bet) and in order to prune...

    Anyone like traffic circles-roundabouts?

    As it's been said 100 times, they're better than sitting at a 3 minute light with nobody coming.

    A new Texas delicacy

    I think I had a little bit of an appetite... BEFORE I read this thread. :D

    I think it COULD be done, but I'd have to do a lot of rigging and fiddling. You'd need a sprayer at the same width as the cutter and have it spray slow enough to cover the whole mowed area. I think on these rough fields it would be very difficult. The 300 gallon sprayer I rented would pull...

    Kubota M4900 Overheated

    I had something like this happen on my M5400. The fan belt had snapped and I didn't notice until I heard the furious boiling in the radiator. I'd just check the fan belt along with the radiator fins. I also had my M5400 get super hot while bush hogging. I couldn't guess why she seemed to...

    Failed attempt to smooth property, how to correct?

    I think that field looks really good, considering how new it is. I think you'll be chasing it for a few winter/summer cycles and the grass will have to get nice and established before it will feel smoother. I had a field like that and with years of finish mowing, the clump grass...

    I'm guessing that it does. I think the biggest problem is that ground is very rough and rocky and I can't get grasses to grow thick enough to take over. These fields are on my wish list for dozer/grader work and planting with good grass. I just have to save up my lunch money for that. I...

    The one animal I would eradicate from the planet...

    Riding our dirt bikes this time of year, we end up covered in them. After a couple of hours the goggles are a mess with all the sticky web material. We call those 'conch-shell spiders' since we don't know what their real name is. Tiny black spider that looks like he's got a sea shell on his...

    Starter spins, pinion gear jumps up to flywheel, but, wont turn engine over. Battery well charged...??

    When a fully charged battery gets to a certain age, it will show full voltage, but then drop to nothing when you put a load on it. Could that be it? The thing that got me recently was a poor connection to ground. For the life of me I could figure why the big girl wouldn't crank. Replaced...

    Titan 7 foot rotary mower.

    I had one 'smoke' on an 1810 too. They sent a new gearbox but didn't say anything about replacing the grease. Getting someone to install it was the not fun part. Thankfully I haven't had any problems since then.

    Sammy the Snapper, on the Move

    I have a lake with a beach area and my kids wont go near the water if they see a snapper, so we shoot them on sight. I'm friendly to most critters, but snappers, cottonmouths and poisonous spiders are a no go.

    Horrible News. 3 brothers die.

    Very sad.

    Blades for a Rhino SE-6 rotary mower?

    Looks like they've been nicked up and sharpened a lot to me. Mine get horrible in 3 years.

    clearing land

    I hope it works well for you. I'm afraid the Volkswagon-sized rocks just under the surface at my place would tear it up though. :(

    They told me to use Remedy while the leaves were intact and do not mow for three weeks. It made them turn fall colors in one week and then I mowed. Field looked great last year, just grass. This year they look like they're back to 100%. Do you spray the Crossbow to the leaves, or after the...
