I finally got the rest of the better pine bucked up and brought over to the splitting pile, four loads. I then brought two more loads of pine branches with the pallet forks over to the fireplace for burning.
Before that Dave from the Wood Chop Shop came over to install a inline orifice/restrictor in the hose coming out of the radiator (it makes the 4540 run warmer), it did the trick. When he was here I changed the fuel filter which went well.
Nothing here. Power loss every time I try to do anything with my Mahindra 3550. They came today and tried to fix it and couldn't. Back to the shop it goes. Again. I have managed to put 260 hours on it in the days I've been able to do work with it since February. Divide that by 8 hours in a full day and you get 32.5 days of work. I have counted the lost days, between 32-33 days of tractor work while waiting for them to fix the multiple problems I have had with my tractor. That's right at 50%. And apparently there is nothing they are going to do about it. Except fix it. Again. Winter is setting in and ground work season is almost over for my trail projects.
