    moving a building

    I have moved a couple of buildings that did not have skids, the smaller ones I dragged them on my trailer anyway, but the ones that were wider than my trailer I jacked up and backed the trailer under them. I have not tried it but that might be a good time to add the skids.

    moving a building

    I was told by the building mover that he would have to check some data base to make sure it is paid off before he would agree to move it. Wish I could check it, I guess I'll wait till I hear from him. The building looks in good shape but it shows signs of being moved a few times when I asked him...

    moving a building

    I was told that but after doing some research I found 20 pounds per square foot to be more realistic if the inside is not finished. I figure about 11,000 pounds.

    Cordless Grease Gun Storage

    I make sure to never leave the battery in it, I use vinyl gloves when I grease and when I'm done I wipe off the gloves and slide the grease nozzle into the finger hole then sit on a rag on the shelf.

    Milky hydraulic fliud.

    Mine was a bad seal on the pump and it did not leak a drop. That being said I don't believe it's your pump must be something you changed or cleaned or maybe over tightened, hopefully yours will show itself in the form of a small leak.

    Milky hydraulic fliud.

    need to figure how it got milky is it water contamination or is it sucking air some where? My B26 was sucking so much air it was foaming out the vent and looked milky. Is the level higher than when you last checked it. Was the oil you drained out milky looking?

    Ditch Digger

    When I went back out this mourning and checked the conduit had dropped about a 1/2 inch or less so that means what I did yesterday worked. I took a female coupling and lathed off part of it making a nut that was about 1 inch tall and I screwed that on instead of the metal ring I believe this...

    Left turn on 2 lane. Stay in R/H lane or L/H to let cars continue on?

    My in-laws told me one time I should turn on my right turn signal when the vehicle in front of me is turning right, even if I am going straight. It became a big discussion between both families, me saying no I should not. so a year or more later the father-in-law turned his blinker on for the...

    Sabre Samurai Cutter attachment

    That's what I did on my B26 when I first got the samurai and it worked just fine but was a pain to connect and run the hoses up front so I could see what I was doing. I also used the RPM's of the motor to control the speed of the cutters. I later added forward remotes and connecting it was a lot...
