    The landscape company I worked at had mostly 1 ton flatbed dually's. I chose an older one with a manual transmission so no one else could take it....... each vehicle looked like a closet and a garbage can between shirts and fast food wrappers left in it.....mine was spotless. My fear was though if I got hurt on the job the kid with me couldn't drive me to the hospital.

    that's what ambulances are for

    What % of population owns a car now?

  3. Carefully remove the end cover. The small nuts have some little wires attached you need to watch out for. they energize the solenoid. The big lugs generally can just come off with the plate. There is a disk that the solenoid presses against the inner ends of the lugs to connect battery lug to starter lug. May be able to clean tighten  etc a;nd be ok. Round plate can be turned over or maybe buy a kit or new solenoid. Depending on the pain of removal there is get starter rebuilt or replace. I prefer to repair myself if I can as i have an allergy to chinesium and avoid it if I can.

    All this carbon and carbon credit talk makes me very nervous. I don’t know where all this money is coming from. But Im sure we will know soon enough.  
    I’ve been approached with info on it several times this winter.  I don’t trust all this science.

    On the money-three guesses and the first two don't count.

  5. As far as forests go proper harvesting will increase carbon storage as the thinned trees grow faster and store more carbon. Good forest management is a carbon storage plus and removing all the dead wood, etc. reduces fire danger. The harvested wood if used for lumber means that carbon is stored for a very long time. Also more CO2 means faster growing trees so it is removed anyway.

  6. We had those for years. Worked good just needed a lighter flint once in a while. Shut off pilots on gas stove and just used one of those to light burner. Once one was lit the others would light. used for oven also. last couple of stoves had electric ignition and i haven't seen those for years. Worked on Coleman stoves also.
