  2. Sorry but I have to ask why would they be at risk? You recently shack up with Lorena?
  3. Skidsteer is the most versatile piece of equipment ever built with their accessories, I would go tracked on those slopes, I’m taking it you have access to that other equipment? The HD5 loader or dozer could be handy for road and site prep, steel tracks suck on steep grades on ice
  4. Wonder how much vibration develops Some mag companies used to have some multi fit slot rims and the washer offset centered them, definitely not their finest idea
  5. Tough crowd Mike😳I see your recreating hiatus from livestock operations did not last long before burying into another intensive activity, watch the body it’s great until it isn’t

  13. I did mount the ram to the plate and had to double up that plate and I think reinforced above also, but not the hanging part it’s all welded up solid now, I have a spare powerpak that I was going to use but just ended up using the hand pump, not sure if I will ever build the big one, going to have to be a bigger shop first 8 a little bench arbor press is extremely handy also, not every job requires a bigger press
