Has a 105hp Yanmar. 3k hours and just had to to a head gasket. Other than that its been good. Working on it is much easier than the bobcats and NHs that I've worked on. To run tracks it has 2" wheel spacers making it 7'4" wide. It's long in the backend, and weights nearly 12k lbs with tracks on. Even with tracks she doesn't like soft ground at all.. The vertical lift is wonderful but all the linkage does give you some inherent slop.

Parts other than the Yanmar are proprietary but availability is good and prices aren't too bad.

If you have lots of open space and hard ground they are awesome as it'll lift more than you can imagine. Tight spaces and soft ground you will cuss.

Mechanical, 12v is all she needs to run. Stay away from the perkins they were plagued with problems in the newer 10 series.

Thanks for the info, good stuff.

Do the tracks get you out of trouble or just lure you into it?

Lure you into trouble. Haha they are better than tires for sure. But a lighter machine like my buddies NH LS180 will run circles around my Gehl in soft ground.

Wow that bad huh?  really puts perspective on it.  A 180 is no featherweight!   

Theres a 980 bobcat with planetary hubs complete and running for sale nearby [rare anymore] and i look at it and think imagine what it could load and dig up.. But its 15k# and super wide with a short wheelbase, maybe even square.  Reality bites me and says imagine how bad it can bury itself.  15k is a loaded service truck or daycab tractor. Itll make a pigpen out of any site.

His LS180 with tracks and bucket scaled out at just over 8k lbs i think, my 7800 with tracks and grapple bucket is 12,600 lbs. That is a lot of weight with not a ton more track area on the ground. Also hard to move as its too heavy and wide for most tandem "car style" trailers. So a deckover is a must.

If my calendar and memory are correct, you should be headed home around mid-week?
Sitting between Bannermans island and Storm king waiting out the fog, as long as we are to the city for Tuesday I'm good. Rumor mill says it's going to be in Eastchester / Bronx which works out ok. Gf leaves for work 1hr before I get home, she's not dealing with tugboating very well. Wednesday morning may sound like Eric Church's "wrecking ball", I should send flowers and a card to the neighbors now.
The mouth of moodna creek is opposite Bannermans, between Plum point and  Cornwall landing. You where close [ to me]

Hey southside... 

You reckon i got all the squeel outta that one yet?   ;D







Bead of the rim was shot from foam keeping the water in.  Even with tons of grinding it leaked like a screen door.  DAP weldwood contact cement.  Perfect seal.

My 01 F250 4x4.  It was my grandfathers last truck and mostly sat parked in massachusetts.  I got it at 87k miles, completely rotted. What a shame.  Every brake caliper on it has hung up and turned the rotor red.  Never happens at a good time and always messes up your day. 






These stupid phenolic pistons love to collect grime inside the bore and then refuse to retract.  If you catch it soon enough you can pop them out with air into a 2x4, sand them up and reinstall [minus the dust seal because it will never go back on right] and get some more time out of it.  If they get hot enough they shatter the piston and get stuck on the axle. 

  Theyre about $100 each and you must bring the bracket with your core because ford used so many different calipers.. Sold with new slide bracket.  If any if you have one of these trucks and are suddenly slowing down fast, smelling brakes and getting bad mileage, feel your rims.  The hot one is hanging. 


I wont have another one of these 5.4 triton trucks.

I love disc brakes, but being in New England, salt, brine, rust really kills calipers quick. Still rather put on a new caliper than play with rotten backing plates and shoes that's never fun!

We had a large wo roll over on a 462 as it turned out to be rotten and rolled during bucking.  Morale: keep other saws away from logs when bucking in dark :(.  Broke a few fins, handle is not good.  Have another top end might switch it up one day.
