/ Small but annoying problem.. #21
it's not a problem because I wear hearing protection for the noise, but I don't want to use them all the time when I shouldn't have to.
It's true the Workmaster 40 is much louder all around than the very quiet TC26DA that preceded it, but It's still quiet enough at most RPMs to drive comfortably without hearing protection unless there is something noisy attached, like a box blade, etc. I generally have the ear flaps on board, but just don't like to use them when they're not needed. When mowing with the RFM, they're definitely needed. In the summer, they're hot, and in the winter, they can be a PITA with winter hats on, though with the rear blade, once there is a packed base, the blade makes very little noise. So, I enjoy riding around without them when I can, and it also allows me to hear any unwanted sounds coming from anything mechanical, that I might miss with hearing protection.I know nothing about your machine so if it's otherwise super quiet... I didn't know and pardon my ignorant comment.
So you understand my point of view:
1. backhoe has a cab but all glass has broken over years so all engine noise comes to ears.
2. Tractor (International 1066) can make a ton of roar when at full throttle
My opinion is it's ALWAYS good time to wear hearing protection....ALWAYS.
So if hearing protection fixes your problem.... and it's advisable to wear hearing protection.... do you really have a problem?
Just make it a habit of putting them on and save your annoyance.
Yeh, this is a common complaint about folding rops. I have buna-n backup rings from work, so just fit that in there to take up the space (when I had the tops of the rops still on). Otherwise, Ace hardware or whatever has nylon washers in all different sizes. Just buy a few of those, fill up that gap with a one or a few of them, however many it takes, you'll be good to go.I can't believe I'm actually asking this, but all previous attempts have failed.
I like my NH Workmaster 40, but one thing that is driving me batty is the racket generated by the ROPS at the junction where they are hinged. I've tried various shims and things which work for awhile but vibrate free, disappear and don't last. Finally today, I cut strips of neoprene and put them in between, clamped it down and it worked beautifully for about 15 minutes at which time the ROPS cut the neoprene strips in pieces.
Anyone out there know a material that would work for this? When mowing, it's not a problem because I wear hearing protection for the noise, but I don't want to use them all the time when I shouldn't have to. I've tried wood and plastic shims, and the neoprene. I was thinking maybe peelable caulk because I don't often put the ROPS down, but that might cut just as easily.. Don't want to use anything that would fuse the ROPS up permanently. My TC26DA never made any noise from the ROPS.
Geographically grouped casino wins have a significant positive effect on consumption and employment. For example, lotteries could be used to supplement budget revenues, but this is unlikely. Still, unlike tax increases, they do not suppress economic activity. But as far as reality is concerned, I have never won the lottery, except for small amounts. But thanks to reviews on sites like I have always had a good knowledge of reviews. The best thing you can get is extra information in your brain. Get smarter, and good luck!
