    Fence Line App for my phone?

    I had a surveyor friend come mark mine out. He did what ever surveyors do from each cornerpin and drove a stake every 50’. I know that’s not what you wanted. But being in the construction biz, if you could get your hands on transit,that would be the way to go. Using an app you may have a line on...

    Sluggish Mule

    I have a 4010 mule with a diesel. I drove it today for the first time in months. I haven't been around much so I'm not sure how it's been abused. About 12 mph is all I can get out of it. It starts and idles good but is just real sluggish. Where should I start. Fuel system or the belt. Like I...

    Socket Organizer

    Does anybody have any good ideas for socket organizers. They are a mess and hard to keep up with.

    Adjusting a tiller

    I borrowed my nieghbors tiller and hooked it up to my cat 2 tractor. I can't get it to dig over 2 or 3". I have adjusted the top link in and out but it won't sit down and dig. It looks like it's sitting on the skid shoes and may not go any deeper. Or is the tractor too big to let it ride right.
