    12'h x 16' w Roll up door vs panel door

    The wind probably isn't that bad here. It just seems bad at times when I'm trying to close and secure the lightweight sliding barn doors I have. It's a hassle to keep lugging the 4x6x16 into place every time I secure the doors for overnight.

    Nice. Looks like the panel doors are the way to go.

    Thanks for the info. I may contact my local garage door installers as well.

    Very nice, I'd like the window panes also. Did you buy locally or online. Also, did you do the install?

    12'h x 16' w Roll up door vs panel door

    On my main barn I have the standard sliding doors but I'd like to upgrade to an electric roll up or panel type bay door and I've got a few questions. My opening is 12' h x 16' wide. 1) Is there much of a cost difference? 2) Will one hold up better to windy conditions? 3) What are the pros and...

    Hello from TEXAS

    Congrats on your retirement. I'm still working as an unlimited HP Chief Engineer.

    Kubota M7040 with grooved R4's

    I may just try the fronts only this year. My neighbor across the street has some chains he wants to see if they will fit so I'm waiting for that. He's a real good guy and I don't want to just run out and get chains after he was so kind to offer. I think the steering like you mention will be at...

    M7040 Cab full LED conversion

    I only got around to one of them so far. These flasher assemblies are a pita. Right now I've been working on getting heat in my shop. As soon as I have it I'll get back to the flashers and see if it needs the resister.....and what resistor will work.

    M7040 Cab full LED conversion

    The first night I took the tractor out I quickly realized the headlights are useless with a loader attached. That was a newb mistake on my part :) I only use the worklights at night. I also did not get interference on my radio when right next to the tractor.

    Log Splitter....had to pre-order for May 2022

    I just ordered enough split wood to last me a good three years in my shop so I'll have time to do splitting a bit at a time throughout the year to start adding to the stacks. I may regret the cycle time down the road but I'll work with it.

    Log Splitter....had to pre-order for May 2022

    What I have on my property shouldn't be too bad to split. I am closing in a few bays of the lean to of my barn for wood storage and will only be splitting adjacent to that area so a very short cord for me. I can see this wouldn't be the splitter for you.

    Log Splitter....had to pre-order for May 2022

    I'll find out. The largest I'll be splitting from my property will be about 15-16" and not usually too tough. If it's too much for the 4-way I'll go back to the standard wedge.

    Nice, let us know how well they work for you.

    Kubota M7040 with grooved R4's

    I guess some tractors are easier to put chains on than others. I think the majority of M7040's came with R1 tires but mine has R4. That makes for more room in the wheel wells. I'm going to get a set but not till summer for next winter. I think my current set up is working just fine for my...

    Log Splitter....had to pre-order for May 2022

    I got a wood stove for my barn/workshop and will likely put one in my house to cut down on winter heating too. I have plenty of free wood on my land so that's not an issue. I really don't want yet another engine to maintain so I decided to go with am electric log splitter. Most of what I've...
