  1. It’s definitely not at 40. I’m not as gutsy as I was 10 years ago but I’m far from pushing a walker. I think I’m just as active today as I was back then also
  2. Speak for yourself. I turned 40 in September and I’ll be damned if I’m getting old

    Blue Jeans

    What’s the deal with dawn in a washing machine. We always use it on my greased up jeans and I’ll rub it in then let soak before I wash them. That’s what my wife does also and we have pretty good luck with it.
  4. What model Deere did you use. I extended mine with just flat iron pieces I had then welded them up. They are right at the top of the arm rest on my seat now. Coarse I had to also paint them red
  5. Dang it. Now you have me questioning my opinion of them.... Perhaps they were smarter than I give them credit. They were smart enough to know they didn’t know how to run a tape measure and knew a chainsaw was asking for trouble. Good call
  6. I heard that a couple times and they were talking about their 8 foot tall horse trailers and hotshot trucks. One place had to get their hired Mexican hand up a tree to cut limbs with a machete. Got a million dollar + horse facility but no chainsaw or brains.
  7. We loaded square bales of alfalfa in cattle pots 15 years ago. They would slide motorized conveyors in the trailer to get the bales up front. I hated doing that cause it took an extra day to get anywhere and the idiots with money that had no idea how much room a truck needs to get in their driveway or under their trees were clueless.
  8. Is that a state thing cause I think I could walk into my local vet supply and buy a bottle of micotil.
  9. I grew up around trucks more than I have farm machinery and have done it a few times myself. Don’t feel bad. What’s worse is when it’s a cattle trailer without adjustable landing gear. Have to shove a pipe or something under the plate to get out from under it
  10. Been times Lorenzo that I wanted to use that on my whole truck
  11. Good to hear you can stretch your legs out a little bit.
  12. Could of used your help this week Ron. Didnt get any pictures cause I didn’t have time. I’m divorced from my first wife and have two daughters with her and every weekend I have the girls so I do my best to get home for them. Luckily my current and last wife is great with them and the three of them get along great while I’m hurrying home. Between her and my mom they make it easy for me with those girls. All I can say is yesterday morning I pulled out of Carrolton Ga and 22 hours later I was in fort lupton Co and now I’m home in Oklahoma. Long trip but we did alright. I picked up my dad last night on my way by and he saved me a couple hours by not having to nap this morning. It’s hard to sleep behind someone even if they taught you how to drive years ago and the thousands of miles you slept behind them as a kid doesn’t seem to matter. But for that long of a trip every little bit helps. Oh I forgot about this one. This was my wife good morning pic at 730 getting close to Denver. Hope your feeling good Ron.
  13. Hook a chain or rope to the handle and pull the **** out of it. It’ll give

    Paccar owns Peterbilt and Kenworth. I wouldn’t call them an engine company. They never made anything but the cab and chassis for decades till about 10 years ago when they started building some. Never had one but never heard anything good about them either. That’s what they were built for. Rough country and geared down for big loads. Torque ratings on those trannys and rears are a lot lower than the driveline behind a big horse highway truck. One is geared to put power to the ground at walking speed or slower and the other is geared to pull 80,000+ up mountains. There’s not much comparison

    If those transmissions were that weak they weren’t big cats. C12 maybe so but not a 3406e over 400hp or a c15. The dealers wouldn’t even turn up power past 475 if they didn’t have at least a decent 13 speed behind them. They were putting 14613 trannys in the b models in the 80’s and 90’s and those are rated at 1450ftlb. The factory 600’s came out with the bigger driveline and 20918 trannys. They were heavier to make paccar feel warm and fuzzy inside with a warranty on them. But I have been told the part numbers are the same between the 18, 20, and 22 series Eaton’s. The 550’s and some 500’s came out with 18913’s
