  1. I think your on the right path. A canvas cover with some bungee cords will help a lot. Look for a tent and tarp place. How often do you change your fuel filters? They also sell different heaters that run coolant to warm the fuel. Lots of the big rigs here have a coolant heater coil in the tank. Makes a big difference. You may also find a silicon heater pad to put on the fuel tank while it’s plugged in in the shed. I assume your covering the radiator also?
  2. Called the guy on the dozer. It will only push dirt if you pull on one of the steering levers. Clutch or steering clutch issues?
  3. Big shaker https://www.adn.com
  4. was looking on Craigslist, and found a nice little dozer https://fairbanks.craigslist.org/hvo/d/north-pole-international-td-340-dozer/7342939704.html But then doing some research i found this https://www.1ststrike.com/auction/667/item/27662/ So it sold a month ago, or failed to meet reserve, for nearly the same price. This all happened within 10 miles of me and I find it hard to believe that there are two dozers exactly alike. So what's wrong with it? Hmmm
  5. Happy Birthday Ma Duece. seems there are stories of some in service with huge and long histories.
  6. Very nice, looks great
  7. For me a tractor with a cab, AWD, and a loader. a magnum would be over kill but work great A 544 with a mid mount sickle mower a 200 to go with my super c and the 230 and finally two skid steers, one with wheels and one with tracks
  8. Hmm. Three new fires around town and now an earthquake. Just a 4.2 a few miles from here
  9. Happy Birthday Gents
  10. Yep, a tradesmen that shows up, does the job correctly and moves on to the next job is money well spent And the references are important, just like you, we need to know you or how you got my number.
  11. yep, Sounds just like all the business classes and service industry. All the tradesmen I know that are successful do it by word of mouth. The only exception used to be phone book adds. I do a few boiler installs and plumbing. Like most here i turn away enough work, why would I want more? Seems like the customers that are reached by this type of advertising are not the ones you want, but this advise is worth the same amount as your in-laws
  12. heavy tractors tear up the lawn, and you can't have that. Also they never are willing to buy what they need to weigh the tractor down to do the job, they are more interested in ordering the tractor with a stereo with blue tooth that syncs with there phone instead of wheel weights
  13. Lots of people complain about the low quality of imported low cost stuff, and then turn around and complain about the high cost of American made stuff. Hard to get low price and high quality made in the USA. Sorry to see the SK name move offshore, but I for one can not find a local dealer to buy them from, or to get warranty claims honored. To me that makes it no different than offshore already so I stick with Snap On, i can find a dealer, they are USA made, and I can get my warranty honored, and yes that costs me more, but it is available

    Yeah. A perfect corral (the correct wire, capped fence posts for safety, and so one), a pasture that is organic and has no weeds, a fully enclosed barn with heat and water, hay with nothing but timothy grass, filtered water, and all the other must have items for horse owners.
  15. And another big caribou
  16. Been real bad here for fires, had one burn 35k acres just out of town. More fires burning out of town, like these
  17. Back at work, up in the Arctic had some visitors at camp this morning

    Lol. When the wife bought a horse she was being led down this path by some of the others. Lots of gals doing Dressage. We had a major course correction real quick. We kept our horses like the livestock they were, and from that point they could pamper the critters all they wanted. We avoided the Golden Corral syndrome.
  19. Our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
  20. Be patient, and good luck.
  21. Those work very well, and last a long time. We have some of them for welding, stout and useful FYI, they will break,
