  1. I was told that I’d you turn the bull gear over your direction changes. If works correctly you would have 4 gears headed towards rear tires and reverse would move you towards your front tires (smaller). We have a M that I need to try it on as we use it backwards with a loader. It come from a log home place but we use it to move round bales.
  2. It makes me laugh to see the Big Hole Valley mentioned as it’s where I live. The loose hay stacks keep better than the round bales and way better than the large squares. We would feed 3 year old stacks and the first 2 ft would be brown after that lush green. It is all native grass. We would use teams of horses and barker hydra forks or a stationary loader and then pitch it off. We could feed a lot of cows every day with this set up. The horses always started when it was below zero. Unfortunately not many are doing it anymore because it takes a big crew to put it up and getting one hired is hard unless it’s family . I’ll see if I can come up with some pictures.
  3. In Bozeman Mt the city does bail them. If I remember right they use a Massey Ferguson round bailer. It was on the news.
  4. I have used scent killer soap here. Usually have it around for hunting season. I have found that Dead Down Wind seems to work the best on both humans and dogs. It takes a few times but it gets better.
  5. I had never heard of the Hitachi pattern. It kinda makes sense after you explain it. I may have to swap my excavator to it to mess with people and myself.
  6. It takes some getting used to but running both patterns becomes natural. I have a mid sized Daewoo and my buddy had large Komatsu. Each had different patterns and we used both on the same job allot. I got to wear I could go from one to the other without breaking stuff and run them efficiently.The case backhoe I run at work now is the opposite of my excavator. Enough hours on each and it becomes second nature.
  7. I don’t know where you live for sure but I do know where there is a couple in SW Montana. They where for D8 Caterpillars but could be changed. Let me know and I can get pics and prices if you’re interested.
  8. It should work for awhile. Looks like a good repair. I had a friend tell me when he did his skid steer track he used a flat piece of steel on top of the track to keep the washers from pulling through. I can’t see if you did that but it maybe an idea.

    I have watched and looked for a long time and finally joined. Originally just Google searched something for a 1086 and started reading the forums. We have have been able to fix a lot of things with older posts. We have a few M’s and Super M’s, a 560D, and the 1086. I’ll post some pics of the M’s one day. The purists may not be happy with the way they are built but they work and do what we need. Grew up in this valley and am lucky enough to have a good job in it. Thank you for the welcome and I enjoy the forum.

    A tip of the hat to all the dads out there. I know I would not be where I am today without mine. He taught work ethic and integrity plus how to do many things. And is still teaching me today.I am glad that my kids have both of their granddad’s to help show them the way. I also want to give a shout out to the moms because I missed Mother’s Day .
  11. I believe this is the other side to the one we found in April. I have to get it over to my brother in law’s and see. Found 3 so far and all 6 points.
  12. You are right. I read right over it and thought Vise Grip. Funny how the mind just added words. Thanks for all the replies.
  13. We found this one 2 weeks ago. Most of the small ones I have seen are still packing.ing
  14. I have a question I figured you guys can answer. My brother in law has a set of pliers we have no idea what they are used for. They are Vise Grip with no49 stamped on them. I tried the Google and it didn’t bring up anything that looked like them. I have no idea if they are complete or not. Thanks for your time to look
