    Recent Kubota RTV 1100C deals?

    I'm looking to finally pull the trigger on an RTV 1100C and am wondering what any recent buyers have paid. Here it looks like MSRP and a 2 week to 2 month wait. This is a cash deal, that saves me another $500.

    Hi Guys, It looks like the knuckle joint on my front end is leaking oil. I just topped it off and it took 2 quarts. How much work is it to get this rebuilt? What kind of seal does this have? Does this repair require any special tools? I'm fairly handy and have air tools. I hate to tear it...

    1949 Ford F-6 firetruck, weight?

    Guys, Anyone know what this truck might weigh? I just bought it, the owner has no paperwork and it's 200 miles away. I'm guessing 6000 - 8000 #'s. My trucker can carry 6000 #'s on his smaller truck and moving up to the big rig the delivery cost doubles. Thanks in advance, JT

    Any Front Loader washer testimonials?
