    In-Floor Heating for a Shop & Greenhouse - Considerations ?

    Its always nice seeing other installs! I built my 28x32 (12' ceiling) shop a few years ago. 5" thick slab. 2" of EPS foam under it. I used an electric boiler to heat glycol. I also have a wood stove. I have a water jacket on top of the wood stove as well, it'll preheat the water a little bit...

    How much trailer weight can my tractor tow?

    My M7060 is about the same size as your NH. I pull a 7000# dump trailer on the highway. Near griss weigh. 5-7 mile trips. A few slight hills. I changed out the 7 pin on the tractor to the RV style to match my trailer. Tractors generally don't have brake lights. So there's no wiring or...

    Kubota M6060 Cast Iron Rear Wheel Question

    Mine came narrowest setting. I bought it sight unseen and didn't think about the wheel settings. It seemed tippy. Widning it out made it a completely different machine, night and day, no kidding.

    file speed?

    I had the same issue with the stone bits wearing out, what's seemed like faster than they should. Problem they would get smaller diameter, making the tooth 'wrong'. I'm surprised those diamond cutters wear out that fast, I wanted to try something else here...... I go through many chains on a...

    McCormick X4.3 Frozen PCV - Blowing Oil - Big Mess at -40C

    Its common to drill a hole in crankcase vent tubes/hose on airplane engines to provide an alternate means of venting in case the end of the tube ices over from condensation. Many people have blown out dipsticks or prop seals as the pressure finds the weak spot!

    Gas Drill anyone?

    Our snowmobile club had a bunch, exactly as someone else mentioned.... we drilled holes to set stakes and sons in the ice on lake trails. They worked well. The last 2-3 years we've moved to 20v battery drills.

    Husky 353 damaged....

    After looking for a decent used tank/handle unit, it was easier and hardly more $ to order a new OEM unit from my trusted local shop. Shipping charges and US/CDN exchange to our little remote area in canada make things like that pretry pricy. She found me a used top cover too, which was $70...

    Husky 353 damaged....

    Yes you did, thanks, the shipping makes it almost the same price as a new unit, so I'll get a new tank/handle. The new oem comes mostly complete too. I did get some small bits and pieces used from chainsawr, so thanks for mentioning them!

    Thanks for the links. I love this saw, while I don't have a lot of experience with many others, what few in this size I've used have never rubbed me the right way. Once I have some time and the holiday rush is over I'll have some time to put into the fix up!

    Best Chainsaw Sharpener under $300

    Tires Removing loaded tires

    I remember something about using 2 pieces of plywood on top of another under the tire…. Helped to slide the tire/rim on and off the studs. A wee pump on the bottle jack to get the height just right. Tricky part going back on was having the tire in the right ‘rotation’ position.

    How does a glow plug work?

    Our snowmobile trail groomers have mirrors like you mention, almost like a school bus…… it’s a knack to get precise using it. I find with the rear blower one is driving ahead almost as much as backward to reposition for the next ‘blow’, it’s not like you’re looking back the whole time. Front...

    Rear blade angle cylinder protection

    Thanks LD1 for the lesson! That’s great knowledge and is excellent to know how the sizing strength works. I actually measured the rod and it’s 1 1/8”. It was just an old cylinder I had on a snowblower and was just to try, I learned the hard way about what’s strong enough! I’ve found a 3 1/2”...

    Rear blade angle cylinder bent rod

    I kinda thought the same Rusty..... then I overcomplicated my thoughts by wondering... if the cylinder is being forced closed, there’d be X oil from the base end going into the rod end. But for it to move say 3” after fetching a big stone, the 3” worth of fluid leaving the base end would put...

    Rear blade angle cylinder bent rod

    Thanks for the advice so far It’s a Farm King blade, 8’. It has a manual adjustment consisting of a bar with holes for pins, you simply choose another hole to adjust the angle. Chim, the mounts are very close to the king pin. Likely 4-5” at most. I thought about this but had it backward in my...

    It took 2 of us and another loader to swap tires around (remove and remount cast rim center disks) on m7060. Unloaded tires. I’m sure one guy could do it very carefully but 2 was gooder.

    Woodland Mills wood Chipper wait times !

    I here ya. But, just cause it can take an 8” log don’t mean you have to cram one in there. But if you did, with the speed control you just slow it down :). The big opening is great for crooked pieces and small trees with limbs, no need to trim them off!
