  1. Thanks Danny and Red211 for the replies. They look so different I didn’t even notice the old one there. Dave
  2. What do the standard rollers look like? Guessing it’s something less than 3 flanges. Are the tracks different too to work with the 3 flange rollers?
  3. Did you write it into the sales agreement that Matt has to join the site and post regular updates for all of your followers Chris? Glad to hear that it is going to a good home. You will just have to find another piece restore and post about... Dave
  4. Merry Christmas Chris (and everyone else)! While I don’t post often, I appreciate reading everyone’s posts and seeing the friendly support that everyone provides to each other. The world needs more of that! Stay safe and best wishes for 2021! Dave
  5. Have there been any cases at the end of the world Joey? I know it’s a long way to a hospital, but seems if they controlled who’s coming in the rest of you would be okay going about your daily lives. Enjoying your daily posts as always. Dave
  6. How about a new thread with photos of the Power Wagon? Dave
  7. Welcome Pirate! You are off to a great start with photos in your first post. This thread is in the “General IH” board. The Construction board is down a bit further on the home page. If you click on the “Red Power Magazine” logo above and scroll down you can’t miss it Dave
  8. Nice save Pirate! You might try posting over on the IH Construction Equipment page on here. Lots of experience with gas start diesels over there. I’m sure the folks that hang out over there would enjoy some more photos. 🙂 Dave
  9. Might be out of Danella’s rental fleet. The railroads are one of their biggest customers. In addition to used sales they have an auction a couple of times a year. https://www.danella.com/product-category/used-equipment/plymouth-meeting-pa/?doing_wp_cron=1606409414.7431368827819824218750 Dave
  10. Looks like a prime candidate for a new Tonyinca project! @Tonyinca 🙂
  11. I left a corporate job at the end of March and went to work for a friend’s construction company as an estimator. Best move ever! It’s like I get to play in my buddies sandbox every day. Our son graduated from HS in the spring and youngest daughter started HS this fall. Older daughter graduates HS in the spring and has been accepted to multiple colleges for fall of 2021. Everyone is healthy in my immediate circle and the grownups haven’t missed any work. Overall felling very blessed and can’t complain.
  12. Pretty cool. Went to a truck drag race in Maryland many, many years ago. Guy ran in a Ryder truck. Announcer called it “the rent-a-racer”. Got points for originality in my book.
  13. At least they could have loaded it rear first to reduce the tongue weight... Then again maybe that would have lifted the rear off the ground... 😂
  14. IH called them “Sightliners”. I believe the window concept was to improve visibility. Save
  15. The kid's Scout Troop has one that someone donated used. Didn't seem to have had a lot of use. I've had the chance to run it a number of times. It's a workout, but more productive than a string trimmer by far! Only trouble we have had was breaking shear bolts on the hubs - or at least having them disappear. Seems to happen at about the same location that we run out of line with the string trimmer... We joke that we feel like the people in the adds as we come crashing through the high grass with it.

  16. "Ran when parked". Might be a good one for KoO to add to his fleet.
  17. Excavator doesn't have the reach that the cranes do - you can see this in the footage from the news coverage. Grapple might have penetrated the jamb better, but I'd expect everything was packed in plenty tight. Crane closer to shore had the advantage of working from an open face too. Not sure you would get me out on the middle of the next one in the crane after seeing that one fail! DavCut

    9/11

    I was sitting in the hospital next to my wife holding our 8 hour old son when the second plane hit on live TV. I remember looking down at him and asking myself what kind of world we had brought him into. 18 years later he is our shining light on a somber day.
