Sure no problem.  

Speaking of oil baths, the return hose just jumped off the barb on my splitter and showered the entire pile.  Customers gonna love the BTUs in that load. LOL

Anyone have any info on the braking system for this unit?? All that I can find is the brake pedal it seems the master cylinder as been removed.  

The blade does work fine but I would like a brake, this is the first forwarder I have ever owned or operated.

It may have internal brakes in the transfer case.  That's where my 132 has them.

The Brakes haven't worked in some time, the blade is half worn away from being used as a brake.

Thinking of trying to install a caliber system as mentioned on here in previous posts.
