    It Begins: Big Bud Tractor to be Produced Again, Simple and Repairable

    Look up Mike Mitchell on YouTube. They pull big air seeders and don't hardly have enough hp to pull on their hills. I read somewhere that they were planning on using 988 cat loader axles. I have thought about this and wondered why they would use loader axles and not use 773 truck axles or...

    Why drop belly guards.?

    I do kinda like queenslander said. I have a cable made up that I run under the machine and hook onto something on the other side and then it helps to put a block between cable and pan and then hook to crane winch off of service truck.

    After doing more digging found that somebody had run a jumper wire with a separate fuse to the front sensor and that wire had got broke where it went over the driveshaft. After getting that all back together it all works now. It appeared like somehow they had run the back sensor thru the same...

    Portable press

    Depends what you are calling portable. I made a h style press where I work I would transport it wherever I needed it if I had to. I also made another press that uses the all thread I use in my hollow ram. It has holes in 1" plate that are braces so I can either use 3 or 4 rods whatever I need...

    A few projects I have done recently

    Looks good CM1995. Per your ideas with making a bucket with removable teeth I built one a couple years ago and the guys on our crew really like it. It has held up a lot better then a regular bucket. The next weak point is where the quick attach hooks up the top flat bar in the bucket where the...

    Deere 850J LGP grousers

    Has anybody welded on new grousers? If so what is the process? Does the old one get cut off some to get squared up? New bars that were priced to me were 3/4" and 7/8" thick. Clears on dozer and end are less than 1/2" thick so do they get cut off so the total cleat height would be same as new ones?

    Volvo A40d Dropbox

    Thanks for the reply. Do you know how many hours it takes to swap them out? Our truck had an updated Dropbox from what it came from the factory so probably wouldn't know if it had the updates or not?

    Volvo A40d Dropbox

    Our Dropbox is bad in our truck if I get a reman how hard are they to change? I'm headed to look at the truck right now. Our dealer was out the other day and pulled the plug and it had shaving all over in the oil. Are most of the reman sellers fairly good options? Reman from Volvo is $13k...
