  7. Bondo

    Do yourself a favor and use a marine waterproof epoxy filler. Bondo sucks and absorbs water. If you want to learn more, google West System Epoxy. They have everything you need. The Six10 epoxy works great, is dispensed using a regular caulking gun and has mixing tubes so that the epoxy comes out the end all mixed up. If you are reproducing molding you can cut the shape into a stiff piece of plastic and screed the epoxy to shape so that there is very little sanding or shaping. You can get it at Ace hardware or off of Amazon. https://www.westsystem.com/specialty-epoxies/six10-thickened-epoxy-adhesive/
  8. flu fires always in the back of my mind

    Probably the steam from the potatoes put it out?? I have also heard of burning aluminum cans to reduce it too. We have a Fisher stove and a SS flue tube down the chimney. Being smooth and straight helps with the buildup as well.

  13. 'Tis WARM Again!

    +5 here this morning. Supposed to be cold through Sunday then back to the 40's for next week. That out to be a rotten mess when this snow melts and the ground thaws!
  14. I lost a friend to exactly this scenario about 15 years ago. He was a very seasoned operator who had done this for 30 years and that excavator had a ROPS. A falling tree has tremendous inertia and can easily crush a well built ROPS..
  15. Of course it depends on the size of the trees! Pushing them over gives you a lot more leverage and is easier on the machine generally. You do have to be careful about knocking the top or tree limbs out on yourself. Don'r ram them. Push with the bucket up to apply leverage. You can use the hydraulic down force from the loader to elevated the front of the machine and put great pressure on the tree. If they are bigger trees do some digging first. Be careful not to get high centered on the root ball as the tree falls over.
