  1. When I realized I had it we were still traveling...we stayed at a nearly empty hotel with a dry sauna that night and next morning I spent a couple hours on and of cooking covid out of me I really think that's why it went fast for me...
  2. I agree but it hard to get her to drink on a good day....
  3. Running thru the house...was a mediocre cold with sinus pressure for me lost all taste a few days. It's coming back same for wife except more body aches... kids it was a cold mom's got it and it's hit her pretty hard....if she gets any worse she's going to need a hospital. Got a boat load of vitamins and stuff in here today she should have been taking all along. Hoping she pulls out soon and does not need the hospital, but she has health issues.
  4. Yes but over the years in time spent in chasing deer. Replacing trees buying new trees... etc that fence starts to look cheap..
  5. Just end the battle 20 96 12 fence will stop them.
  6. It's been a hot minute since I had a camera that worked. Dog yard project here 13 48 3 with top rail Pulled it till the machine slid its tight... Showed up to the fall fence forum (fencers get together) and got asked to compete in the contest. Worked with a guy who was 6 months in the business we did alright for machines we had never used... The protect Evo compact....it's like my machine but refined. This is overall faster. We got 6th place. But these are 8 of the best usa contractors so I'm happy...we were tool light and lower experience in comparison as mesh is not my wheelhouse... Took a few wrong turns on the way home from Indiana to Montana found some lumber along the way. Oh and a little auger for my post driver. Should run slow but decent off my machine. It's the head of a line truck...the price was right and hopefully I can sell the 18"x104 bit as I'll never use it...it should help defray the cost of the hardox rock monster 3 inch bit I purchased. Somewhere along the last couple days of the trip john deeres started looking good and food got mighty bland. So I guess I got the light version of the covid. we tried to avoid people... but I got lucky and it was a mild head cold for me, wife got it when we got home a slight fever and kids too...pretty well on the mend. Mom's got it too her health ain't the greatest...so it's taking her more time... Nice to be home and back able to add pictures...
  7. That's the redi here I believe.
  8. Well I kinda a had to resedule for a later date.
  9. You get what you pay for, I've got skidril gd20 But when it dies I'll replace with a rhino. From swi fence. If your In soft ground it's hard to beat pushing in with the bucket. The cheap ones are not worth it....
  10. 2x full dimension fir from the local sawmill works best for me any pressure treat I've bought is to brittle
  11. Beat down the door of the hospital/ Medicaid to help pay for most of the treatment... When dad had brain cancer after his insurance they somehow did not have to pay a penny out of pocket. Dont take no for a answer.
  12. It met a forestry mulcher... It's on YouTube (the guy we all love to hate) whistlendiesel.
  13. Delta dirt Re: Armstrong blade that may the mader treatment. And added power angle.
  14. Ill have to get a picture of the other side drive sprocket that was welded back to useable... It pretty impressive...
  15. They had the front idler off and said it was ate out but seems like it could be rebuilt if a guy could find center perfectly... I know a decent fab guy....
  16. I would assume that new bearings on that from idler will add a fair bit of tension if there is a half inch thick bearing race and wear it'll pull the track near where it needs to go... Kinda think a guy could get some dom tubing and build a new center for it... Would it be tapered bearings or flat or a bushing? It's a 5500 and a 14k trailer but I have put 15k of hay on it behind the 3/4 ton...
  17. Track was not tensioned after assembly
  18. It's got the 344 motor any ideas on weight?
  19. Here you go its all womped out in the center of the front idler
  20. Allis chalmers hd6. Dozer for scrap rate... It was headed there soon....the good its pretty late model the bad is it needs a front track idler...the bearings are shot. Parts are pretty rare...pretty sure if i cant find parts i can fab something up, No pics yet but it's decent shape...other than the bearing... Why do I do this....got to pick up some time soon a friend had it but is done with it...
  21. I said that too till I upgraded....
  22. Been taking practice test online One question was what do you do if you are being tailgated... I was a little upset full exhaust brake was not a option....
