  1. No but they don't speak of my class at my school. It was the Christian school attached to my church and last time I was there the class pictures on the wall still skipped 05. But class motto not so much. Probably something about teachers least favorite students.

    Then fire up the Michigan if you need more pushing power!!

    (Just do NOT tell the Michigan to “waddle faster!”.  You would like to buy a tremendous amount of ice cream.....

    The cab really helps too. That was what I missed most....my wife got off work last night at 9 and we found out her when my 5500 crossing the scale at 13,000 says the road is passable it is infact not as passible as I thought in the hour between trips the snow hardened greatly.

  3. The old post driver had a issue on hills where it would run the pump dry if the hill was to steep and the right hand suction gets above the fluid. And the fluid got way to hot... 4x fluid resvivour and center sump should help the issues.

  4. It's bad here. Post are already going in hard...second year of this. First time I've seen ranchers excited for a the "calf killer" spring snow storm. About 8-12 inches of snow coming. Hoping it hits I'll gladly loose a couple days of work for a inch of water.

    I wonder if it was the old PT that had arsenic (CCA) or all PT that you can't use? I do remember there was a push to get the arsenic treated stuff out of playgrounds. 

    A guy in town installs docks, which he manufactures out of PT, so I looked up NH guidelines which say no CCA, not in production anyway, but today's stuff is ok although it sounds like they'd rather you use stainless steel for the direct water contact. Here's a paragraph I cut:

    EPA, along with the U.S. Department of Human Services recommends that “treated wood should not be used where it may come in direct or indirect contact with public drinking water, except for uses involving incidental contact such as docks and bridges.”

    That doesn't mention salmon of course. Maybe it's time to dig further and see if your buddy can use today's PT?

    CCA is still in use in fence posts. But only for agriculture use.

    This or something very similar was posted with other machines, at a auction I believe. Because it was joked just what Mader the professional fence builder needed.

    If it had park brake a better driver and walk beside It would be fun.

    I still don't understand how that brace works...or how you install it?

    So the end (king) post is mortised a do about 2 5/8 square a inch deep and and the end of the strut is tenoned to fit tight...a tight fit keeps water out. The strut Is less than 19 degrees to prevent uplift. And 2.5 times the height of the fence. The soil is removed as clean as possible to the width of the strut. A second post is driven to grade or rejection on angle and after its in abit its leaned back to the king post to tension the whole assembly. A good fence guy with all the tools can assemble this brace in 10 minutes in good soil.

    Brace will be stronger than a double h brace.

    AC lines for rear climate control will corrode and leak near right rear tire if you live in a salt state.   Have not heard anything bad about them. 

    Again no  salt here...

    Does that have the selector knob for mud, sand etc?

    I would have thought after the seat in that 01’ you've been riding on a barstool bolted to the floorboard would be an upgrade. 

    No selector. The 01 was top end trim  and mom's is mid trim.
