    Residential estimating

    I've got a client wanting to fill in a valley next to their yard to create more flat useable space. I think the people are dreaming cause it figures up to about 80 tri axle loads of dirt. This is not commercial job with plans, just having to go out and measure up (nothing is flat all valley...

    Komatsu skid steers

    I've put quit a few hours on a CK35. They are a decent machine, push like a tank, good lift capabilities, Yanmar motor can't beat, we had 2 and put at least 3-4000 hours on each and other than a final drive no real problems. Quick attach handles are junk and break off all the time, bucket...

    new takeuchi tl10v2 and updated radial lift tl12r2

    Kind of disappointing that the TL10v2 only has 74hp compared to the TL10 that has 92hp. The TL8 has 74, I guess they did that to do away with emissions.

    looking for a land leveler or rake

    I'm no landscaper but do put in a few yards, I've got a eliminater rake that I use even to finish grade with. A lot of times I'll rough grade a yard out and then rake it just to give it a nice look (probably more my OCD). For house lots and small yards it does good, but larger areas a harley...

    Takeuchi TL12 tracks question

    Go ahead replace them now! I'm still upset with myself. Mine spit out a metal link a couple of months ago and my tight ass thought I could maybe go all summer before replacing track, they were shot anyway. Well a week ago on a rush job, the track broke, so not only it cost me a track, but a...

    Track time! Hiqual, McLaren, Camso?

    Anybody got anymore experience or knowledge of the Hiqual tracks? I know that CNH is using them on their machines now, so I would think they would be a decent track, but haven't found much feedback on them.

    I've never done it, but guy told me, weld a small clevis just above bucket pin on stick and hook chain to it and then weld other end down by teeth or lip of bucket and make chain just the right length so you can curl bucket all the way back and chain will tighten up and pull dirt out. You...

    A Tb125 will handle a 24" just fine as long as he stays in his class of machine which on a wain Roy for a 125 i would assume would be a 4x8 hole in the back. I've rain 30-36" bucket on 125's before. That add you posted looks like a 24" for a backhoe with a 7x10 hole.
