Re: Large motors and soft start

That is the same way our old MG set operated as well. They bought Inductothem PowerTrak's and a lot of the "watching of the meters" went away. At that point, the only meters were KW, furnace Volts and Frequency. The new units now, it's all done automatically with the microprocessors.

Re: Help me Change a Kubota Quick Coupler

Ya, what John said. Kubota is another brand that uses a lot of their own fittings, so look at it good before going to Tractor Supply or whoever.

Re: Live Steam VLog Series: Building the UP FEF Northern

Wow! Loose clothing and strings around rotating machinery! Disaster waiting to happen. I have a friend that several years ago was wearing a sweatshirt around a big milling machine. Tool bit caught his sweatshirt and he went around the spindle. It almost killed him.

Sold it and bought a John Deere 4200, and this time 4 wheel drive. Some of the real small cylinders on this tractor are all welded together, ...
