    In a nearby city they suspended a 4" I beam on chains in front of the low overpass. It gives plenty of warning, you'll know it when you hit that...

    Caught 4 small feral hogs at a time, this morning

    Those little cages dont work: Most hogs are too smart for it anyway, and if they werent, they are as soon as you catch the first ones. Drop cages, that dont look like a confined space, work better

    Have trailer prices started to drop in your area?

    Phenol coated concrete form plywood lasts longer than pine planks, and tropical hardwood planks are just too heavy. By covering them with aluminium diamond plate, i dont damage the phenol coating so they last 30 years

    Have trailer prices started to drop in your area?

    In my area (eastern Netherlands) i have no idea... my trailer is 1991 vintage, modified and regalvanised in 2015 and parked dry. I will not be in the market for another trailer until i retire. Or actually: I might need a new plywood floor with aluminium diamond plate cover when i retire, but it...

    Need Help ID this Nut & Bolt

    Interesting... when i get my hands on imperial fasteners, i measure them up in mm, divide that by 25.4 and then try to find how that translates to a fractional dimension... Then i set my caliper to 25.4mm and count the threads per inch. When i have metric bolts of a non standard pitch, i count...

    Compact telehandler

    In Holland it is pretty common to use a loader for grading, whether its a 2 ton compact loader or a 20 ton industrial loader levelling crushed rock roadbase. It does take some getting used to, because you have to plane the bucket on the heel and adjust your depth of cut with the bucket tilt, and...

    Compact telehandler

    Home - Giant Loaders has expanded to the North American market in 2016 and is building quite a network. It has a good alternative, whether you want a compact telehandler, a telescopic wheel loader, a mini loader, or a mini loader with short boom and increased lift capacity.

    BANANA BALE SHAPE PROBLEMS WITH NH 570 BALER

    Interesting. On Welger balers it means that you have to gear up, because there isnt enough hay thrown in each stroke to fully fill the chamber.

    Turn up the fuel in a 5211.

    Radiators are the same, just the core is different.

    Can a propane tank be repurposed?

    Before touching it with a torch, welder or grinder, unscrew the valve and flood it with water. The water will push out any source of explosion, whether its heavier or lighter than air.

    We have a Navara at work. What surprises me most is that the frame doesnt snap behind the cab, because they rot like crazy

    Near my hometown a train hit a tracked manlift that was used to trim trees. Because the lowboy couldnt pass this overpass without getting the bed stuck on the rails, they waited for the train to pass, so there was time to pass the single rail at snail pass, before the next train, because the max...

    Shoveling out a dump trailer - really!

    What kind of cylinder does it have, if it is a telescopic one, you could perhaps swap it for one with a stage more than the existing one. This is really a design flaw that would aggrevate me terribly.
