    Burnham, is it true that later on in Dent's career he stopped teaching the "Dutchman" cut because he felt that it was unreliable at best? I forget where I heard that from.

    I have been running a Northern Tool 22 ton for 15 years(I think) now with no issues and have split many 100's of cords. Pile for a few years back I am trying to get away from selling firewood. I can talk to a guy and see what he would charge to deliver a semi load of hardwood firewood in either log or split if you want?

    You have some great buys there Brian. I know they'll make money for you. Maybe someday you might get a mini to slide into that dump trailer. ;) Good stuff.

    I've been thinking of starting a thread about useful info for awhile now, nothing trade specific but just handy things to know. Kind of like tips for doing random things that most of us come across. So here's a few that I learned lately 1. Penetrating oil Never buy penetrating oil again, just get an old school squirt can and fill it with 50/50 acetone and tranny fluid. Works better and is super cheap. Jb weld the rolled seam on the oil can first though, it will seep through leaving a mess everywhere. 2. Wax for stuck bolts If you have a stuck bolt, and are to the point of heating it or welding a nut on a broken stud, dab normal paraffin wax on it after heating. It will wick down in the threads, and work so well you will wonder why pb blaster was ever invented. It has to be tried to believe, it seriously works that well. 3. Mop pipe If you are grading with a backhoe or excavator, the best thing in the world for getting a finish grade is what's known as a mop pipe in the pipeline world. You take a chunk of scrap pipe, and cut a hole in the middle for the bucket teeth to set in, and a hole a few inches from each end. You then take a chain and binder over the back of the bucket (using the holes at the end to hook the chain), locking the pipe across where the teeth are. The pipe makes actual digging impossible, smoothing the surface and breaking up clods. Obviously the longer the pipe the better, and the pipe has to be sized according to the machine (in other words, at least 6" for a small backhoe)

    The travel time might be a deal breaker. Things are very busy for me this time of year. 3-5 chimneys a day and three weeks booked out and it's just starting to dip to cooler temps. It's a good season of the year to be a chimney sweep. I'm having my first fire of the season tonight. A quick hot one in the basement to take the chill off.

    I buy Wix/ Napa Gold filters from www.fleetfilter.com. I keep extras in stock for all my trucks, buy oil at Wally World a shopping cart load at a time. The Cat 3126 takes 5 gallons and the Duramax holds 4 gallons. I'll look into that oil additive and also check that air intake tube closely.

    Hell yeah, it's hard to get a read off of a craigslist ad lol. 8k for that truck in good condition is def fair, I just guessed the auction thing and the flip from certain things he said in the ad. I'm sure it will serve you well, any specific questions or problems that come up with it let me know, I'll be a pro here shortly after getting mine up to par hahaha. One tip I have to say after learning what I've learned so far with the 7.3 is to keep the oil changed, I know it's obvious and I'm sure you keep up on that stuff, I've just been dealing with injector issues on mine that are caused by time and oil. They make an oil additive called archoil that is gold for these trucks too. The other thing to check is the turbo air intake hose, they are very prone to ripping in the first gen 7.3s, and if you don't catch it in time it could dust the turbo or worse the motor. It's the hose that is right before the turbo. Cheers on the new truck Brian!

    Kyle, I agree with everything you said but when I met him in person I got a much different impression. I ended up agreeing to buy it for $8K. Kind of hard to go wrong at that price. Yes, he's making a few bucks on it but he also bought it right and had his mechanic go through it and fix several items. It fired right up and ran smoothly. It was NOT pressure washed and everything painted with black spray paint like you find at most car lots. No major leaks, just a little seepage as would be expected on a older truck. He is still working with the guys who bought his tree business and I believe he bought the truck with them in mind but they obviously didn't want it. I'll pick it up next weekend.
