  1. Mark, maybe you need to call Atila for instructions.๐Ÿ˜„
  2. ....and Iโ€™m very happy about that.
  3. Thatโ€™s great. Iโ€™ve been looking forward to seeing those pics. Glad it started. ๐Ÿ˜€
  4. Fantastic pictures, Tony & Danny. Thanks for posting them.
  5. All of the above are good ideas however here is another approach that I have used successfully on several tractors. There are valves available that will split one hydraulic circuit into two with the flip of a lever. (see below) I have plumbed them into the remote that controls the bucket curl and then added a second set of female couplers either directly to the valve or with a break away mount. Pioneer makes a female coupler that will connect under pressure if that is an issue. The valves retail for around $75 and are available from The Schaibley Co. at 800-409-3276 or on their website at AgandFarmSupply.com.
  6. Good looking truck, Tony. Looking forward to seeing you work your magic on it.
  7. Oh how I wish that were true, Jerry. I assume that's how it is supposed to work, but with that particular loader on that particular tractor the massive brackets that mount the loader would still need to be removed to access the front opening on the battery boxes. I'm a little embarrassed to say that it took us 5+ hours to replace 2 batteries. Keep in mind that we were trying to be extra careful to not scratch any of that beautiful new paint and were working with only the tools that I carry in my truck. Not to mention a work light that seemed to be trying to send Morse Code signals. Yeah, I know that I'm getting old and slow but that was not an easy job. The steps were not a difficult problem but getting the 4 straps that hold the battery boxes to the floor boards lined back up with their respective holes in the floor was a real bear. My compliments to Matt. When he tightens a bolt, that thing is tighter than a bull's azz in fly season. At 9:00 that night I told BJ, "I'm cold, hungry and tired. I'm goin' home". I think he was to. Still gotta go back and load up my tools and the official "2+2 Guy battery jacker upper". ๐Ÿ˜„ See ya tonight, BJ.
  8. Ya had me goin' for a minute there.๐Ÿ˜ณ
  9. So sorry for your loss, John. May you find comfort in your faith and your loving memories of her.
  10. May God be with you and your family, John.
  11. It was a good trip. Matt did a fantastic job on that tractor. He loaded it and got it chained down so well that we never even had to tighten any binders. BJ did an excellent job of driving and I was extremely impressed with his Dodge/Cummins truck pulling a load like that.....and that's coming from a diehard Chevy guy. I'll have to admit that I was one whipped pup when I got home, but I think that might be an age thing.๐Ÿ˜„
