I have a chance to buy a T340 with the Drott 4 in 1. $1500 might take it home. Won’t steer, but I’ve researched that pretty heavily and am hoping an adjustment will make it usable. I do have some questions. Several hydraulic leaks, but hey, it’s an old machine. Hydraulics seem strong. Engine runs decent for it’s age, I believe. How would you rate this undercarriage? One of the idlers has some damage, but might be usable. I have attached some pictures. It looks like the oil pan was damaged and has been brazed, but it’s dripping oil, which was clear (probably drains out over time and was new). Forward it drives straight with no issue. In reverse all gears, there is a rubbing sound and engine load. Is this related to brake adjustment? Main brake does nothing when pushed. I want this machine to clear brush and stumps. I doubt I’d put 100 hours a year on it. I’d like to get it going without a lot in parts. I know it’s possible the planetary brakes need relined. I’m very mechanically inclined (industrial manufacturing equipment service tech). Good deal or dangerous? If it turns into an expensive project, the wife won’t be happy!
I have ordered 168’ of electronet I plan to add at least one more section, maybe 2 . This is for my ducks, and I want to keep predators out and ducks in without hurting the ducks. Is a 5 mile charger enough? Do I want high or low impedance? My net is 42” 12 strand. I’m afraid of going too big and hurting my birds and too small and letting predators in. Any advice is appreciated
