    Real thoughts/experiences with military trucks

    I see lots of beds in Lancaster Farming (take offs) that are very cheap, particularly in those longer lengths. Are you over in the s/e corner of PA? I remember a picture over the tractor hood in DE.

    Scenery pictures, what does your world look like............

    Beautiful. Did you say it was spring fed?

    Strat-O-span, anyone have one?

    Got it.👍 The steel numbers seem high to me in comparison with wood materials but I'm out of touch having my own sawmill. There's really very little wood in a "pole" building.

    The gated community issue.

    For some traffic and rif raf, sure. Gates are just like locks, they'll keep the honest out and those that want in, will get in.

    How about your orange fleet? Don't say your going all the way to ''the other side"😆. Either way, like you said smell the roses. 👍

    Strat-O-span, anyone have one?

    I saw the Gettysburg location on your quote, are you in this area and have you priced out wood? There's a ton of companies around south central PA that could price out anything you want and build it.

    Cold Rolled or Hot Rolled

    Come on Rick, you know what I'm talking about. A couple hundred pounds of compression I'm assuming that the op is concerned about for a few minutes while checking the oil. A day long repair or service job would prompt anyone to take the 5 minutes to drop the loader completely. I was being...

    M7060 Stalls when PTO is Turned On

    Mikester makes a good point. Is it stalling from the load and some issue with the drivetrain, or is it a safety switch related issue? Pull the mowers driveshaft and engage the pto and see what happens. It seems that the electric PTO can be "feathered" on my kubota, is it his technique? Maybe a...

    Cold Rolled or Hot Rolled

    I meant blocking the cylinder (in the same fashion as a piece of steel), not a 7' 2x4 to the floor. 👍

    Cold Rolled or Hot Rolled

    The loaders on our little dink tractors could be held up by a couple of 2x4's in reality, especially if they dropped the bucket or attachement.

    My tractor bay, out in the barn -- 3D view you can roll around and travel through (kind of experimental)

    Nice accommodations for your tractor and a pretty cool photo thingy!

    Cold Rolled or Hot Rolled

    That's a compression load, very easy for a 3/16-1/4" angle. Maybe 2x2, 3x3 might provide a better "footprint".
