    I had random issues with my thomas. one time i used a 6" drainage pipe hooked over my exhaust on the truck and blew hot hair at the engine. Worked a charm. Your truck looks like its parked on the correct side already :thumbup:

    I too thought the tire was a dangerous idea. Im pretty sure there was a study on those new turf fields with the ground up rubber tire particles on top. Something about a certain age group of girls developing a certain Cancer. Not sure thats 100% true but rings my bell. Your not suppose to drink out of water bottles setting in the sun because of possible chemical absorbtion into the water, would imagine a tires not so good either. Today i plowed the driveway, did the ball joints in my '99 F350, and some saw maintance. Found time to hammer down some xmas cookies too.

    14k holy shit. Looks good. I like a pintle bolted to a plate but looks like your body extends past the end of the frame. My trucks are short so I never need to do a slide in hitch as the frame stops where the body stops.

    I was making chains today and snapped this pic. These boxes fit perfect. I usually can fit two chains in a box to so plenty of spares, enough for a year.

    Best thing I learned was to say no. Eases stress, and helps create the market you strive for. I remember one guy making a fuss that I wasn’t interested. That was kinda funny.

    Ditto, that’s why I’m asking hahaha I suppose this winter I’ll replace all fuel lines, add a clear inline filter, and I had book marked a new pickup tube so I’ll do that also. I’m wondering. The fuel gauge that’s on it is from the hydro tank, I swapped them when it stopped working. I know the height of the tank is different, but I always check it with a stick. I can’t imagine the factory compensated for the fact that it can lose suction when getting under a certain point. Who knows. Maybe I’m at the point. Guess I’ll pony up and grab my ankles for the fuel gauge too. But regardless it doesn’t seem like it should be doing this with 4-5 gallons left.

    Not particular in reference to my situation. But can you replace a mechanical lift pump with an electric pimp?

    Lift pump above fuel pickup. Id have to check to see if lines off fuel filter easily accessible. Never replaced rubber lines. Stand pipe, yep. Mechanical. Havent cracked injectors, on the job so don't want to mess the ground. Good hypothesis, makes sense. Its a factory cap, id assume its vented. Right?

    Rubber line from fuel tank to lift pump. Rubber return. No inline filter. Plastic fuel pickup on an aluminum housing. Again, only when fuel gets low. The pickup is plenty long too, when i had it out i checked.

    2007 Bandit 1290H. John deere power, like under 800 hours. When the tank gets low on fuel, the machine starts up, idles for 15 seconds, then shuts off. It wont restart without muktiple lengthy cranks there after. But it will start eventually to chip a small bit. I thought i had a weak lift pump so i put a new one on. Still the same thing. I removed the fuel pickup thinking it was broke, but its plastic and no cracks or breaks. Im confused, any input? It did it today, had 4-5 gallons of fuel, but kicked my ass because the battery got weak and its cold out. Stuffed the truck instead :|:

    Ive never painted anything. My brother did my winch when i added it to my chipper. Paul seems to be into painting. Any tips on prep, paint, mixing, brands of material, and application equipment? I need to do my grapple trailer, and redo the poor paint from metavic on the loader. Also fresh up some mini attatchments.

    Where do you put the universal mic? Any trouble picking up voices? Do you have to speak loudly, weve been known to say things that shouldnt be broadcasted.

  3. Hi Brendon,

    I have a full time job as a Software Engineer. So what I have been doing is working weekends, after work(4-, and vacation days to do tree work. I've only done about 10 jobs this year. I do have insurance and even took that arborculture 101 class in New Haven.

    So unfortunately I have used most of my vacation this year. I would like to improve my methods and effciency; however until I find a more flexible job I don't have a lot of time. Do you ever do anything on weekends?

    Thanks,
    Chris
