  1. I had one just like that back in the 70's. Direct drive with a turbo, was a good dozer. DWF
  2. I had prostate removed June 5, 2020. Surgery went fine, catheter 10 days. Laid low for about 4 weeks then started driving dump truck a little. After six weeks started operating the bulldozer, then the excavator and chainsaw some. All along had incontinence and still having some, but is much better now. I had PSA test at 3 months said it was 0.1, Doc said that was okay. Had PSA again at 6 months, Doc said 0.1, not good, wants it 0.0. Going again next month for the 9 month test, will see what that shows. I have had PSA tests done since 2004 and they always showed that I had some PSA. DWF
  3. I'd say a little South and East of Rice Lake. I live 6 miles west of Rice Lake. DWF
  4. I was a contract logger for Potlatch in NE Minnesota in the 80's thru about 2006. They sold the Paper mill in Cloquet to Sappi and then the three OSB plants around 2004. The OSB plants were sold to a Canadian Company called Ainsworth that everyone was told had big plans for the plants. They closed all of them by the end of 2007 and took out all the machinery in the plants and sent them to Canada. Potlatch has a stud mill left in Minnesota that's still running. They were the largest private land owner in Minnesota and have since sold most of the land. Back in the 90's they were great to contrac
  5. Thanks for posting, very interesting. They must sell around the world, not a lot of them in the U.S. at least not in my part of the country. I do have a Dresser TD-9H that I like, DWF

  7. You cause trouble on most all of your postings DWF
  8. Neat pictures. Thanks for posting! DWF
  9. I had a 66 1100 and if my memory serves me right, I remember 7:00X15 tires. I didn't have it new, but it was like a year or two old when I got it. DWF
  10. Have a friend that bought a 510 a couple of years ago. It had a retro fit 4BT in it and really works well and looks like it belongs in the loader. DWF
  11. When I lived in NE Mn about to the Canadian border I bought a Ford LTL9000 dump truck in New Hampshire. I looked at the picture and looked ok for the $$$$ so I had it hauled here. I'll never do that again. They only took pics of the good parts. I had a lot of work and $$$$ to get that thing road worthy. The people at the place that sold it said to fly out and they would pick me up and I could drive it home. It never would have made it. DWF
  12. I don't have a picture, but this is about an aerial photo. I sold a logging truck to a guy in the U.P. of Michigan about 15 years ago. While chatting he said he was recently divorced. I said what was the problem, and he said wife was cheating. I said how did you find out? He said one day he was home and someone came to the door selling a picture of his rural home. He said he wasn't interested but the guy persisted and the owner said let me see the picture. There was a strange looking car parked in the driveway in the picture so he bought the picture. After some detective work he found out it w
  13. I needed a bushing for the thumb and bucket pin on a Hitachi Excavator. The pin was 2" but the bushing OD had to be a metric, the size I don't remember. I went on line and found a place I believe in Ma. I called and talked to a guy there and he asked questions about what it was for and everything so he made sure as to what type of metal was needed. It was not long and it came and worked. It was not cheap, but I didn't think it was over priced. It is still in there today.it was about 2007 or so when I did that. DWF
  14. I had one of those when I had a wood barrel stove in my garage, really blew a lot of heat. DWF
  15. I like and have had good luck with USA made Carolina boots. Be careful, not all their boots are made in the USA. I've had good luck with americanmadeboots.com DWF
