  2. …...neighbouring farmer has a bunch of hounds....for his sheep farm....He is one of those blokes who really cares for his dogs...….Because as we all know, eventually dogs become "old " dogs...and as such there are consequences of that in escapable fact..... Dion has a new Isuzu double cab , flatdeck 4x4...a very common little truck here in NZ...……..so we meet him on our narrow gravel road, shifting stock...…..and in the back seat of the Isuzu are two old huntaway dogs, sitting up and barking frantically ..in that "old croaky bark " that the elderly do...…..this whilst the younger brigade do al the real work.. Drives him nuts he says with a grin.....gets bloody loud in there.....but the old hounds like being part of the "team "......so...... You have to see it to appreciate it .......you also got to like a bloke who treats his hounds like that Mike Incidently, I was entrusted to feed the Rainbow Stations dogs, last night (Saturday )……….all fifteen of them....

  3. Long time lurker-first time poster. Thank you in advance for any information you can share with me regarding this T9. I found it on Craigslist and have been obsessed with this machine ever since. Probably spent 60 hours this past week searching and reading what’s out there (basically read about TD6 and TD9s due to the lack of info on gas engine models). This crawler is a 1941 T-9 gas engine TracTracTor. Is this the least discussed tractor of all time?? I have gone down a lot of rabbit holes chasing different obsessions, but I never googled anything with virtually NO results like the T-9. Note-I have already purchased this machine so pointing out my poor decision making and lack of common sense won’t serve any positive function. Haha The uncertainty is a big part of the fun though and I can’t wait to get started refurbishing this machine. I’m am committed to bringing this thing back to life no matter what. Feedback is appreciated, positive or negative. So i’m looking for some advice on how to proceed with transportation. This tractor is 230 miles from its new home (too much for my half ton pickup to haul safely) I am getting bids to bring the tractor to my property It hasn’t run since 1971 it weighs about 10k lbs tracks and idlers look pretty good There is no oil or coolant in it The engine is not locked up I bet steering clutches are locked up Hope the brakes are not locked up So my questions are: Will this thing roll onto a flatbed? Will I need come alongs or another tractor to pull it on to the shippers trailer? Can a haulers winch pull it up? Will the guy/gal I’m paying to transport know how to load it? I don’t want to get to the tractor to find out it can’t be loaded and waste time and money. Was thinking someone here may have been through this and could offer some tips/tricks of the trade. Thank you for commenting.

  4. I thought maybe. I have a part heeler, part corgi and she is a fantastic dog. The heeler personality traits dominate and I love her like crazy.

  11. Lol. If you watch our sled dog races here you will see that they fly out any dogs that are dropped at the check points. One of the pilots told me he was flying out a dozen high strung pups and they were getting grumpy and he was figuring he was going to have a dog fight in the back seat, so he did a altitude adjustment, I can only guess your video is a great visual of what happened. Lol. He said everything was quit in the back seat for the remainder of the flight. Thanks for sharing

  14. I built the forge and burner myself. I like the coal forge but this is quicker and cleaner to use by far. The burner below is inserted into the top of the forge pic above. That is a pretty big rosebud tip for a torch in the picture. It was 35-40° in my shop last week when I fired up the forge and within 20-30 minutes the 30x50 shop (insulated) was 70° inside just from the ambient heat off the forge.

  16. You won't see ads for it nowadays but binder twine used to be one of the main inputs required to harvest a crop here. One of the biggest name brands was Brantford made right here in Canada. Pretty sure I remember Brantford baler twine too.

  17. My coal forge can be moved like a wheel barrow. Otherwise it would be a bear to wrestle around. My propane forge is on casters. It would need heavy equipment to move it otherwise as there is 120lb of refractory cement in it on top of 150lb or so of metal.

  19. We heck....talked to brother today. Last min they left her in ICU. Concussion thing. By happenstance i looked across Church and there were her girls! They dont attend ours but the friends are members! Such sweet kids. Gave hugs and all....the oldest (10) said they hadnt seen mom yet. Brother said that the grandparents are worried what the 7yo will do seeing her. He said her eyes are a struggle to open b/c of swelling and the rt one is blood red. She has a few issues with her dad checking out already I guess. No visitors today Dr said.

  21. I know that sounds like it should but I think those numbers have something to do with weight vs jaw width. The larger numbers are larger vises but mine says “50” and the jaws aren’t 5” wide. I really like that large one in your picture.

  27. I have 806 back from the shop after nearly 2 months. Total bill was $7k for new flywheel, new clutch and bearings, new rear main engine seal, new radiator, new loader hoses, all loader cylinders resealed, and new starter. About $4k in parts and $3k in labor. 28 hours labor. I probably used up 28 additional hours by stopping by and checking on progress. So, 28 hrs seems very reasonable to me for taking the loader off and splitting the tractor. I wonder if I should have put a new hydraulic pump in while the loader was off. But it still has plenty of pressure for the things I use the loader for. My 1967 806 is running great, the new clutch is super, and leaks have been reduced by 95%. I am glad I got it fixed. I could/should still fix the following: brake seal is leaking, front end needs worked on, parking break doesn't hold when parked on an incline, oil plug leaking, injector pump leaking a bit, ...

  28. Haha, yeah it worked great. I can't take credit for the idea, it was from a friend of mine. I will say though, 12 weights is just about too much on one drum. Next time I do it, I'll get two of them. It was hard to get paint down in the area that hooks over the edge but I did get it.

  29. I am starting to lean towards 45, but in the end I just want reliable. I was hoping to not get hung up in a glock or a 1911 even though there are lots of people who claim they meet my expectations on reliability. I carried a 92 in the service, and it went thru heck and worked, it always worked, dad had one when I was growing up. I loved them. The one I have now is probably the last Berreta I will ever own, until I can get it out of here, bad gun, bad customer service, and horrible contact methods and means. Out of the box and junk. Not 120 rounds thru it and it won’t cycle
