Well, I could have scored a chassis mount truck crane with stabilizers.  They guy just wanted the cab and frame, the crane was free.  COOL!  But I'd need a crane to get the crane, and a bigger trailer.  If I already had a crane, I wouldn't need this one...  So I passed on it.

Here's the lift I was talking about. I don't know a thing about it, will it lift? Who knows! I saw it sitting in the scrap pile and I've got an in with the guy that manages that junk. If nothing else I can keep it around and it if it doesn't work or I can't fix it I may be able to scrounge some junk up off it. Oh yeah, for this and the diamond plate (if I recall it's 4 or 5 pieces about 4'x4' or so) I'll give them 20 bucks.

Sorry for your loss john.  Id have bent over backward to get it home.  Cranes and bucket lifts have all the parts needed to make a log loader. 


Bought a genie brand 115vac to hydraulic lift table from scrap and got $500 for it from a guy in NH that built incredible quarry and stone breaking/sawing equipment.  Pawjer construction, his place was awesome. Brilliant guy.

It's usually about $8 per ton delivered. I got these for free because there were a few big chunks in it.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking then a dose of reality hit me.  I only have 10 acres and I'm not logging it (other than to finish my cabin) AND I don't need another project. But, a logging trailer would be cool...

I cut n bent the stoved in back end to clear the blades this morning and ran the bush hog today. Its hogged bush.  

I heated and beated some frozen gauge wheels someone else rehomed to me and am thinking on if i wanna mod the back end to incorporate a tree pusher bar and open access to the cutter tips for psuedo directional felling.  Just cant leave well enough alone i guess. 
I bought mine gently used for $700 a couple years ago, and have made some of that money back bush hogging hunting trails. I want to rebuild mine eventually and get rid of the center tail wheel, ideally I want to have 4 wheels so it "floats" over the ground and keep the corners from digging in. Also for light land clearing I'd like to get a slip clutch instead of changing shear bolts constantly. 
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

I had pulled every dipstick and fill plug so I was pretty sure it wasn't as bad as it looked, but I told them to get it running and moving then call me to take a look and talk about more $. Girl calls back the next day, tells me it's mine if I will pay $1K. 
Banks do not want to be in the reselling used cars, machinery, etc. business, their business is to make money handling money. They will sell an asset just to cut there losses, and in this case they're probably glad to get paid above scrap price and have it gone.

I have a 5ft finish mower a friend gave me needing work.. I think i gave him $100 for it so there could never be bad blood.

I had to make 2 of the missing wheel forks and buy 4 cheap wheels/tires from SC plus a driveshaft, new blades and spindle nuts.  Last thing it needs is some belts, theyre about 30 years old and throw too often.  It has a floating linkage that makes for a real nice contour cut.










This bush hog im tempted to leave the wheels off and make some skids and a pusher bar on back.  I havent used it enough to know what they can do. Any ideas?  


I lowered it on some tops and it sure reduced that pile in a loud blaze of glory. Kinda like that feature with respect to converting junk woods to good crop ground. I want the nutrients to stay and get incorporated as fast as possible (without spending any money so mulchers are out)

From my other thread, Ford 545 D , I have this new to me tractor.  I installed a QA pate and in the future will have a snowplow on it.  So that means being out in the cold.  I'll  have to add a cab enclosure to it.  So that means I'll need some heat.  This showed up on my favorite auction site, BidRL.  Got it for $7.61.


 
Has a box of special heater and inlet hoses, a remote control panel and the diesel fuel tank.  Probably just plumb it to the main fuel tank.  That should keep me nice and toasty plowing snow!  Fresh air in on the left, hot out the right.  Combustion air in the bottom left and exhaust on the right.  Its an 8kw  output heater - they make a 2, 5 & 8.  The label says diesel but one spot in the instruction book says to fill the 15L tank with gasoline!

In about 2 years i made my friend right around $150k on things he mostly bought hauled in for scrap over the scale.  Where land is high space is premium so they toss it rather than be burdened with a sale.  Many people dont like dealing with strangers.  Theres a hidden cost to that anxiety.

Ljohnsaw what you've got looks like a copy of a "Webasto" heater that are used for sleeper truck cabs. Biggest issues we had was they would carbon up with soot over time. Common for the little exhaust pipe to smoke like chimney at start up, and clear itself as it gets up to temperature.
