As nobody right now can even post on Yahoo Groups at this time,
this was the only other place referenced by the Struck Company website.
Struck Corp - Compact Crawler Tractors


Struck Group and Mr. Russell Courtenay,

Are you moving the group? Maybe to GroupsIO?

Did you request the Yahoo Download of messages and content?

A few of us from the AT (Archive Team) are running with PGO. I've found your group via
the Yanmar, Mitsubishi, Struck Group references.

We are on borrowed time. There isn't enough of the AT people to save thousands of YG from
going in the DARK forever.

The YG servers are super slow, not sure if this message would even reach you.
(It actually didn't, took 4 hours and bounced back)

I've been able to snag your groups' LINKS, FILES and PHOTOS. Messages on the YG servers
are almost impossible to retrieve. What would take 30mins has taken all day
snagging the Struck Groups messages. I'm at message 518 at the moment. Not sure if it
would complete.

For the tractor AT effort, we saved the Deere, Yanmar, Iseki, Mitsubishi-Satoh, Gray
Market Tractor Group and a few others off of Yahoo Groups. Sadly on my listing, there
isn't time left to save others. Struck is my last on the long list as YG is super unstable.

It took 27 hours, all of the message database is now saved and available.

If someone from the group can give a shout to the YG CF Struck owner(s)/moderator(s) that would be helpful.

I was on the Struck Group, Wheelhorse Group and others, so I got the email notices.

Not much activity lately and I didn't see a need to save anything.

The last few posts over there folks had concerns of the wealth of shared information and helpful experiences would go away or be lost forever.

I was in one or two. Always a royal mess and very hard to follow. Never understood why they didn't use boards like this. Kinda glad to the whole schlemeil gone.

So, maybe the manuals and photos are still worth while for this saved group then?

Images totaled over 550Mb alone. A few hundred of them actually.

Yep, still worth while for some, but not for me at my old age.

I still have the archive and the files. Not sure if the user's group will abandon it all or move to GroupsIO or FB. There hasn't been any communication since January this year.
