Re: Screenprinting shop gone

Glad everything is going well for you Stan. I don't claim to know you, but you seem like a decent guy and always helping as best you can on here for anyone that needs it. In that capacity I am glad you are getting your place put back together and ultimately the bills paid. Myself, I cannot afford in...

Re: Interesting Visitor in the Woods

Honestly; I am just glad that he did not walk through the pasture on his way to see me. I love my flock of sheep, but my dog (a Great Pyrenees) loves them more. She has chased off two coyotes, one very scared wayward hunter, and killed two fox. I would not mind them "just doing their job" if that is...

Re: merry christmas

Hi, Maybe someone will find a nice 350 for me. I'd be happy with what I had, even: A straight 350 with outside manual blade and no reverser. But, not one that needs a bunch of work. I know. They don't exist. Why is it folks always find neat cars in barns but not crawlers??? The crawlers are always ...

Re: 350D track spring problem

I have discovered that the later 350D’s have a different track spring arrangement...Does anyone out there have a track spring that conformed to that description. Have the part number up in the shop so can’t reference it right now but the serial # is 743518. I am thinking of having a spring made up ...

Interesting Visitor in the Woods

So the snow was coming down by the inch, covering my trees up as fast as I could fell, limb and buck them up, so I was not in a good mood anyway, and I see movement on the skidder trail. So I shut off the saw, cross my arms and watch this Forest Ranger approach. As you can imagine, I got about as mu...

Re: SNOW!!

We are up to about a foot of snow. The Soothsayers (weather forecasters) have really been off this year. Weather Underground showed no snow for yesterday, last night or today, and the local soothsayer said we would only get an inch. It must have been one BIG INCH as I fired up the bulldozer and plow...

That is okay Lavoy, thanks for trying. (I hope you did not spend too much time looking, I know everyone is busy this time of year).

Re: SNOW!!

We are getting snow now and have had a few inches over the last week or so. Nothing extravagant, maybe 10 inches total, just enough to plow once, with another plowing now due. The 350D handles it pretty well because part of its job is the barnyard, then a half mile logging road for the logging truck...

Re: Why

I don't have a shop, so for the majority of my winter mechanic work, I am done. I need to rebuild my track adjusters on my 350D, and I have the parts, but the last week, it has been 10 degrees outside (f) and I have no place to work. Thankfully I have a good wife, and she understands the need for a ...

Re: Here: More Questions than Answers

PTO is nothing special, if I know what end is on the generator, I should be able to get you one. My PTO shaft came from one of my suppliers when I built my new PTO generator setup last year. Lavoy The generator end needs to be female, 1.125 smooth bore, but keyed 1/4 inch. Driveshaft length can be ...

Re: Almost got hurt BAD!

Yes siree, light in the front TLB's loading forward on a deck over trailer--sometimes can be "fun" when it's not your usual/own rig.

Re: Here: More Questions than Answers

I have had Winco's, no adapter needed, someone has to have changed the shaft. Put a new shaft on it and go. Yes to the trailer, much handier. If you mount an electrical box with extra outlets and some breakers on it, lots more utility if you use it for off site power for something. Lavoy We did tha...

Re: Here: More Questions than Answers

Yes, in going to the Winco Generator site I see that a unique PTO can be bought just for it. I guess you have to order through a dealership, and I found one not to far away. I would call them today, but being a weekend, they are closed. $240 for a PTO shaft is not bad considering how much I paid for...

Re: Here: More Questions than Answers

I have found out this is a Winco PTO Generator after all, probably sold through Supply Center at one time. The 3600 rpm IS at the generator shaft end, but that Winco Generator's requires a PTO adapter. It is a strange shaft size; female, smooth bore, 1.125 inch; the latter being the most odd part. B...

Here: More Questions than Answers

So, I managed to finally get the PTO Generator I was promised home, and now that it is here, I have more questions than answers. The unit seems to be heavy duty, and is bigger than I thought. It is 20,000 watts, but I thought it was only 60 Amps, but is actually 83 amps...plenty for my house. But in...
