    1 Minute Ago
    treebilly replied to a thread Grapple for mini in Gear Forum
    With a tracked machine you'll learn to feel if a track is about to throw and can usually correct it. That being said, I put the right side track on mine twice in the same day last week. It was a bit loose and I was rushing around to many stumps. With the tools close by and knowing how to do it, it only takes a few minutes but it still aggravates the hell out of ya.

    I think it's a fad that will be replaced by the Next New Thing. Mark my words. One day, we won't have to hold a device to use one. :drink:

    Forgive the shitty cell phone videos. I was inspired by the well I'm not dead yet thread. Here is me showing off my spar ascent 8 and some years ago.

    As I said before nobody mentioned it .However if you look at a well ran 020 or 200 you can see what looks much like carbon right up next to the clutch side seal .That has to be hard on the seal if it does have some traverse movement . Before they came out with after market cylinders and pistons e bay was full of complete crankcases ,with crankshafts from burned up saws for 50 bucks a pop .Fact I bought one just for the case to repair one that leaked oil . Those seals are not the best design but as tiny as they are I'm not sure what else would work .I'd say the best thing to do if you own one is about the first indication the saw is starting to lean out is at least replace the clutch side seal after all that carbon is cleaned off the shaft .Cheap insurance if nothing else .It's probably a 15-20 minute job on the clutch side .

    I have never thrown a track. And I've spent a lot of time on machines. I have blown tires however. I'm sure there are several people with the opposite experience. Hoping to demo the dingo this week. They have a bmg to go with it too! The tx1000 looks good. It seems to have more gpm for aux hydraulics than the bobcat.

    Ha. We were never informed either of when there might be a graveside ceremony. I recall it messing with us more than once. Frustrating when you've skinnied up a big tall pine and then have to bail out and come back.

    Thanks for putting that video up, I think we all benefit from seeing stuff like this, especially as a reminder to listen to our gut. And if we're honest with ourselves, I'm sure we've all had similar moments that we're glad weren't caught on a gopro. It takes some serious humility to put that up for everyone to see. On a lighter but somewhat related note, I worked at a cemetery a few weeks ago doing tip reduction on a row of white pines on the edge of the cemetery. About 2 hours in, I'm up in a tree and I started to notice cars pulling into the church parking lot. I didn't really think anything of it. A bit later, some well dressed people walked out into the cemetery and gathered around a freshly dug hole. Groan. I saw the ground guy talking to some of the people that were walking around and then saw the other climber on the ground talking on his phone. Once I got on the ground, I talked with the other guys and apparently there was to be a funeral service that day. I guess the priest/church staff didn't think it was important to inform us of this. We ended up stopping work for 2+ hours for the service. So much for an quick Saturday job...

    The most I have found was .033. Mostly I just feel but I have four 200T for sale and I check two of them, one had .013 and the other had .016. I am in agreement that with 1/8", I would do further checking. I have see nothing in service manual addressing 200T crank endplay. Thanks for the info.

    I have some old photos somewhere. I will endeavour to dig them out and scan them. I have quite fancied taking my kids to circus school training. Unfortunately there are not enough days in the week at the moment. Maybe when things settle down a bit I will find something for my boys.

    Good because whoever built this thing went to the same carpentry school as my grampa. Need a nail there? Better use three! So far I can see it's all cedar and fir for lumber. Old fir sets up damn near like stone it seems.
