    Bending Metal?? Looking for some advice

    I've never ran to any issues, but I do run unusually large TW size tanks, 350 CU/FT. My buddy works at a gas tank filling station and got me the tanks free, I had to pay to have them sent out to be pressure tested and refurbished with new paint and valves. The nice thing is that they last...

    Bending Metal?? Looking for some advice

    Rosebud tip on your torch will put a lot of heat over a larger area. That can be reshaped like it's made of butter, easy with the right tip on the torch. It's tough to cherry up a larger area of thick steel when your trying to use a burning nozzle on a torch. If that is all you have, try and...

    Premium UDT Oil for Kubota

    So far as I am aware, there is no "aftermarket" hydraulic fluid that matches the requirements for a Kubota that is designed for using the Super UDT2. The $60 TSC fluid would not meet the requirements.

    How to make a 12' to 15' light post?

    I purchased some solar LED 300W street lights to place along my driveway. What I did not think of was how to get a post to mount them to. I saw some Youtube videos where people tried 4x4 posts and they said that a 16' 4x4 stuck 3' into the ground with concrete swayed like the dickens in wind...

    Harbor Freight Tools that don't suck

    I bought into the Lynnx brand that was prior to Atlas. They no longer sell batteries or anything related. Let's hope your Atlas doesn't get rendered obsolete as well. I'm going to move to all Ego with the 54V Arc Lithium batteries.

    DPF Regeneration driving me crazy...

    I have a 2021 Kubota L3560SE that has 105 hours on it. At almost exactly 50 hours it went into regen, and again at 101 last weekend. I typically run at or very near full throttle, so both regen cycles would have been un-noticed by me if I had not had the display set to show the filter %. There...

    If You Were To Get A New 6 Ft Finish Mower - What Would You get?

    From around late November to mid April you can't drive a tractor or UTV on our slope unless the ground freezes. You'll slide 400' down into the trees while peeling the grass from the wet ground beneath. Even at this point your sliding sideways trying to get across, screwing up the grass. I do...

    Riding mower vs BX

    That has Hydro Great ZT-2200 hydrostatic drive units. That wouldn't make a single mowing season here pushing my steep yard. Those value ZT units are likely the cats meow for folks living in the flat lands, but I happen to live on a cliff covered with grass [emoji23] and any tractor I buy has to...

    Riding mower vs BX

    A BX mows flat out in low range at 3.5 MPH. A garden tractor with the Hydrogear G730 mows at 8 MPH and a Garden tractor with a Tuff Torq K66 mows at 6.5 MPH according to GPS. I own both. The BX would be a horrible mower in that it is slow, heavy and costly. A Husqvarna 354DX with a Kawasaki...

    Hi-Lift Jacks... debating 4ft vs 5ft..

    I've had a Hi-Lift Xtreme 48" since 2014, and I have used it. I also consider it a tool of last resort. It has tried (never successfully) to hurt/maim/kill while being used. They are awesome once you pull of that task, but they are scary as all heck to use... especially after you have witnessed...

    Hydraulic top link ball end liberated itself.

    Oh, it was his fault and he knows it. He had a triaxle of dirt dropped and wanted to knock the top off and drive up onto it and push the top of the pile off the backside. As he climbed the front wheels up, the box blade that was fully raised ended up gouging into the ground and he was pretty...

    JD 450C Dozer?

    Man. I think we may have under-valued the one we sold 2 years ago! It was a fully operating and functional machine, sold for $7,000 plus $500 to deliver it aver an hour away. I believe it was about a 1984? It had 1,100 hours on the still working meter.

    Trailer Purchasing Advise

    A big trailer can haul small loads. A small trailer can not haul big loads. My son and his F-150 hauling a young ladies little Ford car. He doesn't have air bags yet, but I've told him to save and get them.... It's a 20+2 Iron Bull 14k equipment trailer.

    Hydraulic top link ball end liberated itself.

    My father was running the Kubota L3560 today and had the ball end of the hydraulic cylinder decide that it wanted to live free... so it escaped its life of bandage. So, can I buy a universal weld on ball and cage? My father is something else. He can break an agricultural machine designed to...

    Truck Detailing

    I just bought my son a 2010 F-150 XLT from lower WV, pretty decent shape, frame looks nice. Slight rust on the bed cross tubes, but the rockers, cab corners and bed sides are great. We are in the process of clay, compound, polish and ceramic enhanced sealant. He's 16, this is the first time he...

    Truck Detailing

    If it is a 5 year, it is a ceramic or a nano-glass. It could be the new gryphene coating type, but that is still pretty new and not fully embedded into the detailing world.... yet. If I were a betting man, I would guess Gtechniq C1 Crystal is what he used.

    Trailer Purchasing Advise

    I agree, after owning both a goose and multiple bumper pull trailers, if I had to get into tight places and be the most menuverable with a trailer, I believe that I could jack the bumper pulls into places that the goose would have me throwing fits. It is totally different in technique for...

    He originally bought it brand new as a lawnmower to drag the families big old Woods mower around the pastures no longer being farmed. Some time later he added the loader to it. Just recently, he added a box blade and a rear grader blade for doing work on his property where he is taking fill dirt...

    Like you, I know I have seen folks within the confines of this group that have come up with less expensive yet very workable solutions to this kind of upgrade.

    Not a good time to buy a car

    According to the manufacturers, they will not go back down. They never again want massive on the ground inventory. They like this lower inventory and more per customer order along with the sales prices at sticker cost. They are saying that we will likely never go back, there is far more money...

    Trucks! Geez....

    Be careful! I almost went to Arkansas to buy my son an F150 and in a whim I asked the guy I was talking to... to take pictures of the frame, springs and rear axle. All rusted. Turns out it's a Pa truck sold to Ohio, auctioned from Ohio and shipped to Arkansas. Same junk as I have up here.

And at midnight tonight Ram is tacking on an additional $1300 to the base price...

    Year of manufacture

    What year was it initially purchased? That is the year if you wish to assign a year to it. Tractors tend to be distinguished by model, a given model is made for a chunk of service years, and when the manufacturer updates the model it will be assigned a new model number. Think B2650/LX2610 and...

    If there are aliens, what will they look like?

    I think that like a previous poster suggested, their physical design as well as senses would be based on the conditions that they lived in while developing. I doubt we would meet the green skin, stubby legs, giant eyes and pasty smooth flesh of childhood stories.

    Honestly, The one bar I used to frequent has a female bar tender who truly believes not only in alien or extraterrestrial life forms... but she is convinced to the core that she is one of them. She has alien tattoos all over herself, she talks like a nut case half the time and she is convinced...

    Would a 12' trailer haul a Bobcat CT2035/Kioti CK3510 with loader?

    12 foot is crazy small. I wouldn't want that for free. But I guess if your totally cash strapped and can't get anything better... you make sure with what you can get your hands on. I run a 22' Iron Bull and I don't think it's everything I want. A 24 or 26 foot deck would be better when I have a...
