    Bx1860 won't even click when I turn the key

    pull the pto lever back and HOLD it while trying to start. i assume you already made sure the hst pedal is centered. it doesnt matter if you are in the seat or not . everything else is not needed to start bx. I wouldnt worry about the battery since you can hear the clicking of fuel pump.

    Building a Bridge?

    using this fact - Over 12 feet, which is the maximum allowable span between supports, a 6-by-6 beam will hold up to 102 pounds per lineal foot.
