    12'h x 16' w Roll up door vs panel door

    The wind probably isn't that bad here. It just seems bad at times when I'm trying to close and secure the lightweight sliding barn doors I have. It's a hassle to keep lugging the 4x6x16 into place every time I secure the doors for overnight.

    Nice. Looks like the panel doors are the way to go.

    Thanks for the info. I may contact my local garage door installers as well.

    Very nice, I'd like the window panes also. Did you buy locally or online. Also, did you do the install?

    12'h x 16' w Roll up door vs panel door

    On my main barn I have the standard sliding doors but I'd like to upgrade to an electric roll up or panel type bay door and I've got a few questions. My opening is 12' h x 16' wide. 1) Is there much of a cost difference? 2) Will one hold up better to windy conditions? 3) What are the pros and...

    Hello from TEXAS

    Congrats on your retirement. I'm still working as an unlimited HP Chief Engineer.

    Kubota M7040 with grooved R4's

    I may just try the fronts only this year. My neighbor across the street has some chains he wants to see if they will fit so I'm waiting for that. He's a real good guy and I don't want to just run out and get chains after he was so kind to offer. I think the steering like you mention will be at...

    M7040 Cab full LED conversion

    I only got around to one of them so far. These flasher assemblies are a pita. Right now I've been working on getting heat in my shop. As soon as I have it I'll get back to the flashers and see if it needs the resister.....and what resistor will work.

    M7040 Cab full LED conversion

    The first night I took the tractor out I quickly realized the headlights are useless with a loader attached. That was a newb mistake on my part :) I only use the worklights at night. I also did not get interference on my radio when right next to the tractor.

    Log Splitter....had to pre-order for May 2022

    I just ordered enough split wood to last me a good three years in my shop so I'll have time to do splitting a bit at a time throughout the year to start adding to the stacks. I may regret the cycle time down the road but I'll work with it.

    Log Splitter....had to pre-order for May 2022

    What I have on my property shouldn't be too bad to split. I am closing in a few bays of the lean to of my barn for wood storage and will only be splitting adjacent to that area so a very short cord for me. I can see this wouldn't be the splitter for you.

    Log Splitter....had to pre-order for May 2022

    I'll find out. The largest I'll be splitting from my property will be about 15-16" and not usually too tough. If it's too much for the 4-way I'll go back to the standard wedge.

    Nice, let us know how well they work for you.

    Kubota M7040 with grooved R4's

    I guess some tractors are easier to put chains on than others. I think the majority of M7040's came with R1 tires but mine has R4. That makes for more room in the wheel wells. I'm going to get a set but not till summer for next winter. I think my current set up is working just fine for my...

    Log Splitter....had to pre-order for May 2022

    I got a wood stove for my barn/workshop and will likely put one in my house to cut down on winter heating too. I have plenty of free wood on my land so that's not an issue. I really don't want yet another engine to maintain so I decided to go with am electric log splitter. Most of what I've...

    I actually have some of that in my shop. I'll try some tomorrow.

    Pole Chainsaws

    I've been very impressed with my string trimmer. I figure I'd only get half way through my large yard but it does the whole thing on a single charge. Been great for several years now. The pole saw works equally well. Greenworks make solid products for sure.

    Is a spike in tractor prices coming?

    Right. I was quoted $36k for a cab tractor with frond snow plow last year. This year for the exact same setup it was just shy of $46k! I was actively seeking a tractor all year and noticed the prices on all the tractors have gone up quite a bit.

    Good morning!!!!

    It's 19F outside here this morning and the 45 year old wood stove I refurbished is just sitting there in my shop. Got some of the stove pipes at my local supplier and some of the class A chimney pipe arrives this afternoon, but a few pieces won't arrive till the 21st. I sure wish I could use it...

    Regret a cab tractor?

    I think we may be experiencing the same weather system. We also only got about 4" of snow but there were a few hours today it was near white out conditions from the wind....along with some drifting. I'm looking forward to our warmer weather as well. That will give me a chance to get up on my...

    Pole Chainsaws

    I just got a Greenworks 8" 40V 2AH battery powered pole saw. Partly because I've got a Greenworks 40V weed trimmer a few years ago that still runs strong. I've had it out twice now and so far it's working gtreat.

    Regret a cab tractor?

    Looks like North Idaho and Northern Michigan had the same weather today. I'm with you on that one. I love the outdoors but in this stuff I love drinking my coffee and wearing a t-shirt in the cab :)

    I think next summer I'll get a set of the 9mm talons. I see them now for my 16.9-24 rears for about $1,300.

    Kubota M7040 with grooved R4's

    Both of those look very good. And I see the Talons are a good $400 less than the TRYGG yet look to be similar in construction.

    Kubota M7040 with grooved R4's

    I suppose if I'm going to lay down the money I might as well get something good, I have seen a few videos and review of the4 TRYGG and they seem to be well regarded by many.

    Did I Stumble On Gold?????

    I'm sure "toy soldiers" aren't the only one's who take being prepared seriously. Some people just see the writing on the wall, and make sure they don't get caught with their pants down. These are rapidly changing times.

    Kubota M7040 with grooved R4's

    It got pretty stormy here last night and windy today. Touched up the driveway and around my barns no problem. It's not even that slick yet but I went back on my main two tracker and couldn't back up a couple hills even in 4wd and the rear axle locked. Had to go at them again with a bit more...

    Love that you guys found it with the price sticker still on. Always nice to find ammo. I just found some S&W .460 in my tool box. Box stores aren't the place to get ammo anymore anyway. The prices are through the roof. I've found the greatest selection and prices online at places like SGammo...

    The M7040 got a 7' snow blower today :)

    I think they call it and 8x8, but I kinda just see it as a 4 speed with high and low range. What is the appropriate way to refer to it? Last night I was in high range 1st gear but the snow wasn't deep or particularly wet. I'm sure I'll be making use of the low range before winter is over.

    Thanks for the post. I hadn't given too much thought about FOD. Have you ever had a squirrel get caught up? Would that meke it a flying squirrel then?

    Installed a rear camera and tested it tonight.

    I forgot to mention something I did and read in the reviews for this camera. One reviewer said only after removing the plastic on the screen it became more difficult to view because of his polarized sunglasses. Si I left the plastic on my screen which was exceedingly difficult because if I have...

    Tractor Brands Market Share

    I think a couple of huge factors play into all of this as well as peoples preferred tractor choices. One factor is triple digit hp machines used for serious agricultural tasks. Most tractor brands just aren't building for large scale ag work. IMO, that is an entirely specific market. ymmv...

    My lean to addition

    Well that makes the project even better. Anytime you can repurpose and get great results it's a win. I haven't had the place I have now for very long. It's got three large pole buildings the previous owner used for boat storage. I let someone do that with two of the three buildings for a bit of...

    Installed a rear camera and tested it tonight.

    The angle would be nice but the lens would quickly be covered in snow and be useless. My rear camera is inside the cab and if it weren't for the rear wiper it wouldn't be much use. My snow blower is a rear 3 point.
