    Machine shed estimate

    I have two Morton buildings one a 48 x 75 the other a 42 x 63 both on '9.0 ft centers both concrete floors and aprons one is the energy performer package that i really love I know a lot of the guys on here don't like the extra cost of Morton's vs other building manufactures and I am open to ideas from others However I have a very good Morton building group here and they are very aggressive at selling and taking pride in doing a nice job and when you can have equipment protected from the elements and also do off season maintience plus depreciate the cost of buildings It makes the decission much easier also I live in a very bad area for high wind and tornado's afew yrs ago we had a 100 mph + wind come thru here a lot of buildings in my area were destroyed and I had damage to my house but my larger building the 48 x 75 here at that time took it in stride doors and all I was very pleased it was intact when i got home that bad stormy day

    10 o`clock? 2 o`clock? 4 o`clock?

    Only thing i use spinner knobs on is mechanical linkage steering equipment My lawn mower and 560 tractor never used them on newer tractors because they don't stay in the same position most of the time I like them in the 8 to 9 O' clock position when i use one

    water getting in hydraulic fluid of my 856

    How would water get in thru that ? there's a seal in the pto nut that seals the push rod the boot is just a dust cover anyway

    another wedge question thanks

    Oh My well yea that would do it axles are case hardened inside is softer steel and any welding done on the outer surface is curtains once you melt through the hardened part its ruined

    another wedge question thanks

    I believe your correct sounds like a matter of getting the wedge bolt loose However heating the wedge won't bother the axle if it comes to that I have used that method and it works when other things fail I have seen the time I've rounded the head of the wedge bolt (not good) and had to torch the head off all kinds of fun stuff Haven't had a hard one in yrs now so maybe the worst is behind me
