    Where to find SYP lumber in SW PA?

    Here in SYP land, we try to use SPF. Pine sawmills all over down here. # 1 SYP goes overseas. I built a house for a guy at the sawmill. Got a bundle of 2x12x20 without a single knot or flaw. They do exist.

    which gear for bush hogging with ford 4000

    It's just 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8. Low is the first four and high is the second four. Granny has nothing to do with it. Granny gears were trucks with a 6:1 or lower first gear. The rest were normally spaced.
