    Pole Chainsaws

    I had my 150' cedar edge trimmed last summer by professionals. They switched to electric edge trimmers and wouldn't go back to gas one. I have a 18V 6" pole saw that works great and bought last year a 10" 18V chainsaw (using the same battery as the pole saw) to cut limbs from branches before...

    Snowblowing rules of thumb

    I have a 300 meters private road. Takes about 15 minutes to blow it. One pass going out, one pass coming back in. Done. Now with my electric actuator to move the chute up/down, no need to get out of the tractor. It's gonna be even easier than last year [emoji846]

    By adding another inch, do you mean to cut it shorter by another inch or cut it longer? I'm going to use this with my angular grinder to cut the shaft straight. https://www.princessauto.com/en/angle-grinder-stand/product/PA0008864951

    Thank you both. My snow blower came with its PTO shaft precut when I bought the tractor so although I'm somewhat used to using an attachment with a PTO shaft, it will be the first one that I'll cut one. You both gave good advices [emoji846]

    Should I fill the hydraukic oil tank on a new chipper before storing it for the winter?

    So, luckily, my local Home Hardware store received a batch a 5 gallons AW32 (Wakefield) hydraulic oil so I went and buy one during my lunch hour. Poured it in the tank, which filled it to the top, tilted the discharge chute to expose the flywheel which I turned by hand until a twig I inserted...

    Should I fill the hydraukic oil tank on a new chipper before storing it for the winter?

    They replied --------- Yes, do not leave the tank empty. It is best to make sure everything is coated. The tank will get rusted. --------- So, either I overfill the tank to get all sides coated, turn the PTO by hand to bring oil to every parts, or, I unmount the blower, mount the chipper and...

    Should I fill the hydraukic oil tank on a new chipper before storing it for the winter?

    Thanks all. I'll go buy some hydraulic fluid. Wasn't expected it to be delivered so soon so I was caught unprepared lol.

    Should I fill the hydraukic oil tank on a new chipper before storing it for the winter?

    So I bought a new PTO chipper that feeds hydraulically using its own tank and pump driven by the PTO. I bought it now although I won't use it until spring because it often goes out of stock. It doesn't come with its hydraulic tank filled. Is it safe to leave it like that for the winter, under a...

    Blower is already attached to the tractor and having no Quick Attach, it's a pain to remove and install so that's the main reason why I'll wait.

    Twice I rented Vermeer towable chippers after storms took down many trees and is one reason why I wanted one with hydraulic feeding. This things are a beast. You had to be careful around them. You could get a branch in the face very easily!

    I had (well still have until it's sold) this chipper from Princess Auto. It's opening is 3"x5" and anything bigger than 2" would bog it down to a stall. It was pulling the branch in too aggressively. Had to pull the branch away when I heard it bogging down. It's main problem though was it was...

    Awaiting my Woodland Mills WC68

    I was hesitating between both but went with the WC46 because I didn't think my 23HP PTO couldn't handle anything bigger than 4" anyway. But you're right, adjusting the feed rate, I might be able to chip a bit bigger. For the price difference, it might be more worth it so I've called them and...

    Awaiting my Woodland Mills WC68

    Just ordered a WC68. Tractor has a 23HP PTO and I feel that's right sized wood chipper for my tractor. Delivery lead time is 3 weeks so chances are I'll have to wait until next spring to use it. Edit: changed from a WC46 to WC68. Same lead time.

    Added an electrical actuator to my snow blower chute deflector.

    Good idea. The actuator is IP54 which should protect it from rain but adding another layer of protection doesn't hurt.

    Added an electrical actuator to my snow blower chute deflector.

    Not much but I added this electric actuator I got from Amazon to adjust the chute's deflector. No more leaving the tractor to adjust it :) Used a scrap piece of metal (1/8" thick) to extend the actuator so it reaches the holes of the original deflector's adjustment rod. Switch to control the...

    Would a check valve work and if so, where should I put it?

    First time using my new valve since I installed it. It fixed the problems I had with that log splitter valve, which were, 1. backfeeding the valve's vent port when raising the 3PH, moving (ie, pushing) the valve's handle. Now the handles (I now have a two spools valve) stay put whenever I move...

    So from what you're saying, no firearm were ever fired by negligence? But if it's because like you say it's deliberate act to pull the trigger, one could argue that pushing the stick twice to put the car in autopilot is also a deliberate act.

    Us it's $0.06150 per kWh for the first 40 kWh of the day (actually, it's not checked daily but over a billing period, which is around 60 days so 2,400 kWh) $0.09502 per kWh for what's above that 2,400 kWh $0.41168 per day of billing (flat rate, so $24.70 wether you consume electricity or not)...

    Where are you for kWh/mile being the same as ounce/mile? Here, it' s about 1/15th. My 2013 Hyundai Tucson used 10L per 100 KM so 0.1L per KM. At $1.47 per L, that's $0.147 per KM. My Telsa Model 3 SR+ with its 50 kWh battery drains 30% per 100 KM so 15 kWh per 100 KM, or 150Wh per KM. At $0.0615...

    So far only the SR+ comes with LFP. Not sure if the SR+ will be the trim of choice though. If you look at the millage rented cars have after just six months, they are obviously not rented to go get the groceries, hence why LR would make more sense in my opinion.

    Battery based electric vehicles of today and tomorrow.

    I wonder what will renting EVs do to the batteries. My thinking is renters don't keep their cars for very long and to increase range, they might to always charge them to 100%, which unless they are LFP, is bad for the battery longevity. They will probably replace the vehicle before it becomes an...

    It's a small shop that is affiliated with Kal Tire which is a retailer/distributor here in Canada. Yes, for the work done, I think it's fair.

    Battery based electric vehicles of today and tomorrow.

    I'm on the fence. They are heavier, hold less charge and its usable voltage range is lower than NCA batteries, meaning the BMS has a harder time figuring the range (power) left. They require more frequent almost full discharge/recharge to make sure the BMS has a good idea of its charge. On the...

    They didn't replace the tires, just patched them where the old patches fell off. Edit. Just reread my message. It's a misunderstanding. It's not the tires that fell off, but the patches that were on the inside of the tires.

    This is what the rims looked like. Awaiting the final bills. Tires were patched and according to the technician (I wasn't present unfortunately), they fell off and needed to be replaced. They now have tubes and topped up with NaCl since one wheel had less than the rim height. Thanks all for your...

    They took different route because the charger offered by the Mustang were out of order and they only found out once they reached it. They couldn't make it to the next stop otherwise. In Tesla, you know which stalls are out of order and even how many are occupied right now.

    Battery based electric vehicles of today and tomorrow.

    This answers your question. They used a Tesla S Plaid, but it has basically the same (348 miles) range as a Model 3 LR (354 miles). Not all EV are alike though. Actually, there are Tesla EVs, and other companies EVs. They are still playing catch-up.
