    new job

    yesterday they sent a new guy up. asked me to check him out. the fellow had no driving experence. cdl school for 2 weeks. first thing he let the clutch out fast. the truck lurched into the air. then he tried downshifting into low low at 30mph. caught that just in time. couldnt shift without using the clutch then went to shift into high range without flipping the button. caught him in time. couldnt back up either. he admitted it was too much and shook my hand and left 1 hr later. unfortunatly he drove 3 1/2hours to the site. one day wonder! oh well

    trailer is a vacumn but doesnt have the pump on it. the well flows 800 gal a min to fill the truck. if it had the pump it will build 20 lbs of vac or pressure. the guy i am helping has a pump just doesnt have the time right now to install. runs it off the wet line on the KW.

    it will work well when its dry. you will need a big dump truck so you can haul gravel to your lane. wish i had a rubber tire loader.very handy to have on a ranch. and a old grader too. neighbors have them to maintain thier roads. one neighbor has miles of roads on his place. bigger than a township in area.

    Rotary PTO driven mowers opinions

    bought my schulte used a numbers of years ago. the salesmen told me to loosen the driveline clutches every year. i didnt and had to replace a shaft in the 3 way gear box. lesson learned. never had any problems. mowed thousands of acresof sage brush. dealer has been super on the parts. had a wheel bearing go bad and it was greasable. i was greasing it regularly but the hub held a tube of grease so i wasnt getting enough in it. . whatever mower you buy getthe walking beams stump jumpers and the solid tires. Schulte are the best mowers by far loke was said in previous posts
