    Got to love developments in rural areas

    Short answer, No. We are grandfathered at the back end of a 1.5 mile 1 lane gravel road. County would require me to upgrade the whole road to 40' with 10' shaped drainage and streetlights. Not feasible because most of the easement is across a hillside.

    Got to love developments in rural areas

    It's the same all over NC. In our area Wake, Durham, and Johnston counties have all over built with McMansions and high density housing (Read "townhouses"). We live in Granville county and the only thing stopping additional development is the South Granville Water system was built during...

    No, I have a guy that rebuilds cylinders for me. That's one thing I leave to the pro's.

    Help .... Frozen hydraulic pivot pin

    The pin and sleeve you are looking at (with the drift pin and grease fitting) is one of the ends of the arms. What I am working on is mid span of that arm, where the hydraulic cylinder connects. I am removing the hydraulic cylinder to rebuild it with new seals. I added that picture to show how...

    Help .... Frozen hydraulic pivot pin

    I'm concerned about the ends also, I think it's time to cut the pin in the center and push it out either side. Anyone know a good source for a 1.5" X 12" pivot pin ???

    Who rides motorcycles?

    The DCT should be a nice upgrade, but they made the GW smaller with the redesign. At 6' 8" and 300lbs my 2013 F6B took a lot of mods to be comfortable. I have a feeling I will be going to a Spyder to get the DCT....

    Can a X738 front blade system be mounted on a rear three point?

    Shouldn't be hard to attach your mounting / hydraulic assembly to a 3pt frame. The only issue I can see is all of the hydraulic connections you will need. Could be interesting ....

    Help .... Frozen hydraulic pivot pin

    I just realized some clarification may be needed here; 1) There is no production work being impacted here. I buy old equipment that I have a specific need for, fix it up and then sell it after I'm done. In this case, this is a Marklift boom lift I plan on using to add a garage onto my house...

    Help .... Frozen hydraulic pivot pin

    Just an update, we have been able to move the pin a 16th to an 8th of an inch using the jig and a sledge but it just won't go through. Too much flex in the square tubing to allow me to push with full pressure. Next step is using the hacksaw blade to cut the pin and drop the cylinder out of the...

    Help .... Frozen hydraulic pivot pin

    I have a 1.5" hydraulic cylinder pivot pin that is seized and will not come out. It moves easily on the cylinder end but is frozen to the sleeves in the square channel on either side. The pin was held in the sleeves with vertical drift pins but over the last 30 years moisture has gotten in them...

    Clamp on pallet forks

    I got the clamp-on to use for the rare occasions I need forks. They work great and store away in minimal space. I have lifted several #3,000 pallets of blocks without a problem.
