    White Oaked my mower trailer

    When I went to get my new mower last week I had to lay a piece of ply down on the deck so the 800lb beast didn't fall through. I fixed that problem today, had some white oak left over from a customer who supplied logs to deck his gooseneck.

    Hydraulic filter change on MX4800DT

    I have a very slight almost insignificant dent in the hydraulic filter on my manual transmission MX4800 and I'm thinking about changing it before I make a skid guard for it.

    Built a quick and dirty thumb.

    OK here's V2, dad and I talked and he felt the rod failed because the mount failed and vice versa so I welded it up proper this time. Besides the repad I also changed the open width to 36" instead of 42" and that alone made a world of difference in the smoothness of operation. The gussets are a...

    Built a quick and dirty thumb.

    Had the same thought about the welding last night as I was settling down I think I'll just reweld it as is but maybe add a little preheat to the AR before I do. Here's the pics of the pin you wanted I took them then got sidetracked with broken stuff.

    Built a quick and dirty thumb.

    Well thanks for all the compliments but I'm afraid I have some bad news, I've already broken it. I was trying to grab a pile of brush and had the thumb half open and pinned it against a tree and rolled the bucket down at the same time and bent the rod and tore the mount off. I was a little...
