    Outrage after NY paper publishes names of gun permit holders

    I realize this is oversimplifing, but we could tax everyone in the country 100% and we would still be in debt. I like the idea of abolishing income tax and raising sales tax, but I think it would encourage more cash deals and "under the table" sales.

    Firewood Gathering With A Power Trac

    Here is the one I made, it's nothing fancy. It is 10ft diameter at the base and about 7-8ft tall.

    3PH question on dk40se

    I bought a 6ft box blade from my neighbor for my new tractor. The problem is it dosen't seem to drop down very far. Both levers are all the way down and it only seems to go about level with the bottom of the back tires. I tried playing with the toplink adjustment which will tilt the blade at the...

    This may seem like a dumb question, but while researching tractors I've noticed some loaders have a breakout force that is basically double the lift capacity. While other loaders' rated lift capacity is only say 400 lbs shy of the breakout force. So is the rated lift capacity simply what the...

    Why are tractors rated in hp?

    This question has prolly been asked before but I was wondering does anyone know why they rate tractors in horse power instead of torque? It seems like torque would be a more desirable rating than horse power since tractors are not designed to be raced.
