    Plan Has Come Together To keep Me Busy In Retirement.

    I put a plan together, now that I have retired from the medical field. Step 1, tractor too small - get bigger tractor. Step 2, now trailer too small, get bigger trailer. Step 3, now truck too small - get bigger truck. So I ended up with the NH Workmaster 75, a Big Tex 14 GN 20+5 trailer, and a...

    Ads Showing Up When Logged In

    First it was the Summit ad in the first few posts, which I figured was intentional. That started a few weeks ago. Now additional ads are showing up between posts.

    Replacement Battery No Longer Available For 2014 Ford Focus EV

    Looks like the early model EVs are disposable. The battery is no longer available for a 2014 model. Even if the battery was available it would cost more than the car is worth.

    Video of the NH UK Factory making the T7 Series

    Interesting video showing the insides of the NH factory in the UK where they make the T7 series. A new tractor rolls off the assembly line every 4 1/2 minutes.

    Getting a new portable fuel tank.

    With the new WM75 having a 20 gallon fuel tank and using more fuel per hour than the Boomer 8N that I was using for mowing, I needed a better solution than 5 gallon cans to fill it up. I bought a 3/4 ton military trailer with the idea of putting a 100 gallon tank and pump system in it. That...

    Truck with GN trailer rear-ends semi at 60+ MPH.

    Somebody must be living right to be able to walk away from this wreck. Impressive that the trailer didn't suffer much damage and the load stayed in place. The damage to the truck will buff out. :laughing: Very Bad Truck Wreck! Pickup Rear Ends Semi At 6+ MPH - YouTube

    Micro Rain MR25 Portable Sprinkler System

    The wife was tired of dragging hoses and sprinklers to water her riding arena, 20m X 60m (66' X 198'). She wanted me to install an underground sprinkler system. I would have to overkill on the heads to get uniform and complete coverage as no heads could be in the arena. I did some research...

    GE to phase out CFL bulbs for LEDs

    Hope it drops the price of LEDs even further. Walmart had a 2 pack for $4.99. I just have to get adjusted to the watt equivalent from old incandescent to LED, 60 vs 8.5. I almost had it down for CFLs and now they go by the wayside. :laughing: General Electric to phase out CFL bulbs, amp up...

    Just FYI for those that are not the original owner of a 07/08 Chevrolet or GMC HD pickup. Just got my recall notice in the mail. Seems they have Takata airbags and can overinflate if activated. I am to receive a second letter when parts are available at the dealers. Until then it states it...

    5-20% Percent Biodiesel

    I filled up at Murphy USA tonight and noticed a new sticker on the pump. It stated the amount of biomass biodiesel may be between 5-20%. The old stickers stated contained up to 5% biodiesel. I wonder how MPG will be affected. It is still ULSD.
