This project began with moving the old pool house around to the other side of the pool near the garden to become a tool shed. After relocating the pool pumps building a temporary home for the breaker panel and pool controls, it was time to get the slab form ready for concrete.
After months of non-stop rain and cold weather, Spring finally brings warmth and a break in the rain, so that progress can be made on my new shop building, but I've got to work fast!
Squib is a strange word for a bullet stuck in the barrel of a gun. Recently, I had one of my own to deal with in a .38 caliber revolver I was shooting. This is how I cleared it from the barrel.
Soon after I got my Kubota L3901 (A.K.A. "Big Orange"), I knew I wanted a place to keep him out of the weather. My best option at the time was to build a lean-to shed off the back of my carport. The challenge for building this shed was getting the headroom and space I needed within space available.
Even though my front-end loader has a quick attach coupler, I wasn’t sure I wanted to spend the big bucks on a set of quick attach pallet forks so I opted to start with some very affordable clamp-on forks from Titan, purchased through Amazon. I quickly discovered just how useful pallet forks can be and bought a set of quick attach forks about six months later.
It doesn't get nearly as cold here in the South as it does up North and I am just fine with that! Since really cold weather is rare here, engine block heaters aren't as common as they are in the North. But occasionally, the temperature dips into the teens and single digits, which would make for a sluggish tractor start. So this is my solution for warming up the tractor on those rare occasions.
Having proper ballast for your tractor is essential for safety when you are carrying a heavy load in your front end loader (FEL) or pallet forks. Not having enough counter weight can cause your tractor to tip over and it can happen quicker than you might think.
The Titan Clamp on Trailer Receiver was one of the first attachments I bought besides the ones I got with my tractor. It has proved well worth the $69 I paid for it on Amazon and has become my favorite tool for moving trailers around.
The standard adjustable side link on most tractor 3 point systems certainly work for adjusting the angle of your three point system, but they are a lot of work and hassle to adjust. That's why leveling boxes are so handy to add to your tractor.
I have had this chainsaw for about 6 months now and have cut a lot of wood with in that time, so I think I can give it fair evaluation. I have to admit I was very skeptical of battery powered chainsaws, but this thing has won me over.
