I have often wondered how they get them back on the wheels after that?

a frameless log dump seems like a terrible idea.

Agree. But we get them to this day on a regular basis. I don't recall any other problems except that one.

i guess it makes sense in a super high volume lot where the trucks have to turn and burn fast and everything is over a weight scale.  but what a mess for the yard workers to be unbungling.  i hope they have knucklebooms or atleast forks with thumb.

Volume through our yard is not high. No scales, everything is either scaled in the field or in the yard. Dump trailers are regular, but infrequent. Nearly everything is unloaded with a knuckle boom. 
After talking with the yard folks, the one in the picture was up-righted by chaining the body and frame together and pushing it back over with the front end loader (seem removing logs from the trailer). There was another one that tipped over around that same timeframe. In that case the air suspension was not relieved and the load bounced when the dump cylinder reached the top.

I am told a frameless with bags inflated is asking to go for a ride. Forget to lay it out one time and theres goes your telescopic cylinder.

from the recovery, but as it was pretty step there the semi looked like a prezel just from the crash itself.
a finca is a piece of land between 15-999 hectares, after 1000 it's called a hacienda, in theory

Those aluminum van trailers are built as lightweight as possible, think of it like a giant square pop can. The walls work like a truss to bear the cargo weight, and once they are compromised, they can rip in half.
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

Im certain you could have a replacement rod manufactured for less.
you okay?  looks like the rock did the driving over that day. sucks man.  still work other than the squirt boom?


My turn, and an expensive one.  :'(


(Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
 

Well  several quotes later, a crook stealing 1800 from me. I tried to buy a whole jib from UK. Which never arrived. 
It's back to working normally. I just bought another one. This time i paid attention to what i was doing. And the guy didn't know what he was selling i think. I paid less than the one i got stung on. 
Lowest quote for rebuilding the whole cylinder, 2500 from an italian company near me. The red one is already foe sale on a big french secondhand site.

not really carnage, just my day to day life.  seems like something needs my love and affection 3x a week.

yesterday after loading the junk bunk trailer with pallet logs, poof, magic smoke comes up from the winch motor area and the remote is click clacking the solenoid but nothing is happening.  the winch is 10 yrs old but sat in a box until this year, has very low hours.  

i pulled the motor apart and it looked fine, nothing to fix in there. only pic i took is putting the 4 pole brush holder back on, figured itll help someone in the future.  need 4 hands, use 4 clamps.






the remote was making the contactor click in both directions so its not suspect.  took the chicom 500A contactor apart and it looked fine but had some very superficial arc spots on the contacts inside.  few file strokes, reassemble, walla.  winch is back online.


the tractor has always been hard to start despite having enough batteries to start a semi. id put it off long enough and this was getting old




pulled the 1972 denso starter off and took it apart.  aha. carbon fouled commutator.








this machine has a decompression and glowplugs on a manual rocker switch.  it could barely turn itself over with the decompressor open.  it could never start without a few minutes of glowplug then crank 5 to 10 revolutions then glowplug then crank.  and since end of summer it has needed all that and a jump, then i would leave it idling half the day if needed to avoid shutting off.  winching has not helped the batteries at all since it has a 10amp generator..  the batteries are really doing all the work.  i have to pull the radiator hoses and do some substantial fabwork to put a delco 12si alternator on it soon.  it is my fault that the winch contactor arc'd because of the little generator allowing a big voltage drop.  the $50 generic contactors are made very well and are easily serviced. 

anyways.. used a razorblade to clean up the commutator keys, then file and sand the surface back to new.  



hose it off with brakleen, sand the brushes a bit, shine up every copper contact, grease the end bush, reassemble and walla #2..





the machine can now crank hard enough not only to start without the decompressor, but hard enough to do it without glowplugs, and hard enough to raise the 3 pt and drive the machine in gear.

so a little sandpaper and some tinkering from 9:30 to noon me saved like $500 today in normal person dollars.  with what stuff costs anymore i dont know how one can afford not to be a mechanic.

 I'm working on my 2010 dodge 1500, got in to start it last Thursday and the wipers started going full tilt headlights on hi and no rpm/speedo all dead. Started at the fuse box only one fuse blown, changed that still no help, thought the tipm was bad took it out, can't find anything wrong. So I moved the wires under the steering wheel the idiot light flashed then quit, I'm now thinking the wiring going thru to the drivers door has a break. It's so cold out 35 all day that I didn't go look.

Have the rear axle from a Iron Mule 5310 in the shop. Broke a sun gear shaft, which sent large chunks of metal circulating throughout. Not a single gear in the entire axle has all its teeth still intact, every bearing shot. It ate the pinion bearings allowing the pinion to move into the carrier and cut a trench into it.

The problem with this is finding parts. It is a Ford A62 end loader axle. Not many of them laying around. Also believe it is a front axle from the loader but not certain on that yet.
