Been there done that. One of the reasons I gave up ever wearing short sleeves because of sparks and slag. A world of cooling happens in the second it takes t0 burn thru a cotton shirt. But the thread bare material over my chest was no match for the uv light. I never did many projects that I welded for hours on end, so flannel or denim general was enough protection. Learned to keep sun screen in the box of welding supplies.

Son got better training he will not strike a ark without he puts his leathers on.

I bought some shirts from western welder with a good starch i get burnt less than with leathers. Just forgot the old wrangler shirt was not the same...

100 degrees

Blew a 1" x20 foot hydraulic hose on the post pounder and the seals went out on the main lift cylinders all within one post today when i started the hole  it was bleeding off quickly when i finished it would not lift the mast. Got home and saw the cylinders case was dented and took out the seals... not fixable... got all that cleaned up and saw both tractors have a flat on the front... this week has had 3 mondays so far...

Hammer lift hose blew when i caught the drop to fast...the impact of 800lb falling from sky blew the seals on the main lift ram... went to pull the piston and found the body was dented and the cylinder was junk. Can't find thst cylinder locally or surplus center so its adapt something else. I like farm store in-stock parts so 2 2.5x12 cylinder and some hoses later it works...just gotta finish welding it up.

Wife went to town had her get some fittings and while waiting put the pump drive seals in the 656.

Forks for a loader that goes more than a mile per hour. Just wish the operator station rotated for visibility like trackmader.20230819_200711.thumb.jpg.f6a1fda9474ed6c56443846baa090c34.jpg

trackmader had his hydraulic problems so weld time. Went from a single 4 inch cylinder that would lift way higher than needed to to 2 2.5 inch cylinders in a more vertical path.

6 miles directly up wind with nothing  but dry grass in between us. Glad it was caught when it was. That fresh smoke and light on the horizon sure wakes you up. 55 acres, pretty small. All out now good thing to cause we had 3 hours of 50 mph winds today.

Glad to hear that they were able to get it under control @mader656!  Way too much loss due to fires the last few weeks!

Really fortunate to have a too big fire department here..... we send trucks and crews  all over the  state and country. But when they are all here the response is really fast.

Took the old 656 up to the camp we support to help move some rocks....in good news i get to do the clutch while its warm not later this winter... might as well do the ta while im in there...it needs it.... was able to get enough clutch to get up on the trailer, blade and loader off. That clutch went fast. Like within 1000 yards from kill the motor in any gear to near nothing. 

More stuff to do in a already busy fall

Oof got the 656 stripped to the ta clutch took about 7 hours including a hour or so whipping up splitting stands both clutches shot...sure glad i can dont need to watch videos to figure out how to do all this... porta band was an attempt at cutting cab brackets loose turn out the plasma cutter was better option.
