Re: Help issue with JD 350 B

On the same 350D and it would stop working after just a little bit of working time.

The problem was as simple as a clogged Reverser Filter.

Again, maybe being a 350B the problem is different, but always check the easy stuff first.

Re: Help issue with JD 350 B

I had that same problem when I bought my 350D as well, and my Grandfather was nervous that I bought junk when it did not move getting it on the trailer.... My problem was a simple fix though. The clutch pedal does not have greaseable points so it was sticking. The clutch spring that pulls it back ge...

Book Update

Lavoy was really a motivator in getting me moving again on my book called " Greater than Gold , which is a memoir about me finding the second motherlode here in Maine, as well as my struggles through an intense personal trial including ill-health, financial run, treachery and even human death. Just ...

Re: What would you like to operate?

Was told by a guy who used to work high iron, similar to tower climbing, you have to be an adrenaline junkie. I am really considering it. That job right now is in really high demand as the industry makes changes. There are probably four or five companies hiring Tower Climbers in my area alone. As I...

Re: What would you like to operate?

Don't you hate the guys online who, when you ask a question, say something completely different! (LOL) I am that guy! But my dream job is to Tower Climb. I have always loved climbing things, and heights do not bother me, so to get paid to change the light bulbs on the tops of those towers...that is ...

Re: What would you like to operate?

I always wanted to mow the sides of the road. I watched them do that all my life, and being a farmer I have always loved: Mowing Hay Plowing fields So last year when a friend asked me if I would mow the roads for him, I jumped at the chance. I loved it, and did a good job because I really cared; I w...

Re: Adding to the Fleet

Additional equipement? A 4x4 wheel loader with 1 yard bucket for the gravel yard, maybe a mini. I got a gravel pit myself, nothing big at 8 acres, but quite a bit of gravel because it is down pretty deep; about 32 feet according to test drilling. Some is above the waterline, but not much. Legally I...

Adding to the Fleet

Just curious what some of you wish you could add to the equipment fleet. Myself, I have quite a few additions I would not mind seeing. I figure I would break it down into two categories: Reality (as in, it might some day happen). Dreaming (as in, it is never going to happen, but I still want one any...

Re: John Deere 450 dozer

The 450 is a good all around machine. It will push quite a bit more dirt than the 350, but logging wise, they are about the same, just because it is hard to get more then 5 trees behind them. By that I mean, if you get 5 trees behind either the 350 or the 450, it will pull them to the landing withou...

Re: Making Tall Grass Short

I have run over a few chainsaws. One was a Husqvarna with my bulldozer which was not a bad thing because it was a Husqvarna, but I admit I said bad words when I ran over my Stihl with a skidder. Now I do not put the saw on the ground, but throw it up on my skidder when I am not actively cutting. I d...

Re: Purchase questions

I understand completely. Every situation is different, and it would be silly to think your place is exactly like mine. For me, I am working on logging off our White Ash before the Emerald Ash Borerer arrives. I got the majority of it logged off now, but I guess the Maine Forest Service has found a c...

Re: Question for woodworkers

Of course I am not thinking more highly of my parenting abilities than I should. Last week I was pretty proud of myself because my six year old made a snowman right in the middle of the driveway and I plowed all around it after another snowstorm, but never knocked it over so she could show her mom w...

Re: Question for woodworkers

Oh for sure, the wealthy are some of the nicest people, and I have worked for a few. I tends to be the people that worked their way up from little, that are generous. For the children of them, they have heard the stories of having nothing, and tend to be pretty respectful as well, but its the Grandc...

Re: Purchase questions

So, after adding a shaft you can't back up with it running something. Unless you tear into the trans and add an R, of course. Stan A baler is about the only thing I could see. It would have to be something with ratchet and pawl mechanism, or maybe a worm gear. Most things can spin backwards just fi...

Re: Purchase questions

I would not think twice about putting a PTO on a bulldozer, but I would think long and hard before getting a wood chipper though. I have one, but what I have found is, their stated "size" is about half of what they claim. For instance, a wood chipper might claim that it is 8 inches, but really about...
