    Harbor Freight Tools that don't suck

    My little Johnny needs the engine replaced. Drive belt on my Craftsman failed. Tired of balancing little tractors on little bottle jacks and jack stands. Needed something better. Shopped around for mower lifts. Lowes, Home Depot, TSC, couple other local tool supply places, all had various...

    Grapple vs forks

    You could get a pallet fork with a grapple attachment on it if you really need to save a few bucks and have a tool that is nearly "all in one". There are many styles available: Personally, I like a separate grapple and forks. I purchased my forks first, which I would advise for anyone...

    2020 Siverado HD

    Then what is with the new superduty? It uses the full headlight area, it remains lit all the time for both low and high beam, as well as daytime lamps. The height used to make sense of low mounted headlights before this. But why now? It apparently doesn't matter...

    2020 Siverado HD

    They all should do as they have with their muscle cars. Just do larger modernized builds of their classic designs. I think we would all agree this is much better looking than the 2020 HD... Same for Ford and Ram.

    Bradco Backhoe Thumb

    Well, since Paladin took over Bradco, they no longer make the 485 backhoe. Now they make the 490! It appears by all I can find to be the same unit, just built from a milder steel (80ksi versus 100ksi). What do you think the chances are that the thumb is the same? The few pictures and...

    5k on 5k trailer..

    I purchased the basic EAZ-Lift, which is made by Camco. The original/first designer and manufacturer of WDH systems. The same ones who famously took the rear wheels off Olds Toronados and towed trailers to advertise the systems. I didn't add the optional mechanical sway control since my...

    New (to me) safe, need ideas.

    As the title states, I just got the deal of a lifetime on a safe. It is big. I need the best ideas on moving it. I have my 14k equipment trailer that I just equipped with a 12k lbs winch. I also have a couple snatch blocks to increase the pull. I also have my tractor, which will be woefully...

    If you look at the frame at 1M23S into the video, it appears the ramps are held in place by the same bolts that hold the wheel block he installs at the front after loading. Considering it is a manufacturer supplied solution, I don't think they would provide unlatched ramps. Any good ramps...

    Anybody recognize this cylinder holder?

    On the couple carts I have made, I've just used a small piece of chain from a kid's swing set. If they can withstand kids up to 100lbs swinging on a pair of them, one will hold a cylinder in place. Less than a buck per foot and doesn't turn brittle after 10 years...

    A new reason to avoid Deere

    FEL removal - Any tips?

    Nearly the same. I have an "alignment bar" that has a tapered point that is ideal for lining up many things on a tractor. It rides beside my seat with my rag where I can reach them from the front or rear. It is my most-used tool on the tractor (perhaps the rag is used more often). Best...

    Ford to try their hand at a diesel 1/2 ton?

    Not many people over here buy the basic F150. I have the 3.5L ecoboost that makes something like 90% of it's torque between 1000 and 2000RPMs, and doesn't drop off until about 5000RPM.

    My first modem was a cradle you laid the handset into. It operated at 300BPS (bits per second). It takes 8 bits to make 1 byte, which is one character. Plain text was transmitted at a whopping 37.5 characters per second. This is a moderately fast reading speed. There was no "internet"...

    Now I just need a trailer...

    Just added a new 3.5L Ecoboost F150 Lariat to my list of to(ys)ols. Now I just need a trailer. Looking at a Sure-Trac 14k implement trailer. Overkill for what I need it to do, but I think it is still within reason.
