    I see your doing something stupid

    Linemen work poles everyday and grab hooks and a belt before a ladder. The difference is pretty impressive when you are belted up to a pole

    What do you know? Michigan wheel loader

    We had a 275 straight frame with a 8V-71 (318) that was a great old bear. When moving it any distance we would travel in reverse. It just plain steered better than going forward. I do not know if it was just that worn out, or if it is like driving a car in reverse (steering axle trailing) versus driving a car forward (steering axle leading). Then we got a 275B, articulated with a 400 Cummins.
  6. My dream tractor was always a John Deere 8010/8020. Now that I discovered Big Buds 20 years ago I will have to say that it will be a later model Big Bud.

    some people should be shot

    An eye for an eye Rick. As for the perpetrator(s), they had best turn themselves in. For their own well being. If Seth gets ahold of them there is no telling what he would make them do......

    Welding rod question

    For root passes on rusty, dirty, greasy, oily, in other words "a typical farm repair", my "go to" rod is 6010. Not quite as much penetration as 6011, but the flux on 6010 seems to blow through almost anything. And because of its cellulose flux it can be run over its own flux if the existing flux was not completely removed. I do not know how well 6010 works for welding over flux from other rods. And yes, before someone says that 7018 is stronger than 6010......, I do run cover passes of other alloys as appropriate.
