Re: Hydraulic problem

Something like this Dale: http://www.sunhydraulics.com/model/YRDK Sun makes them is various flows. It would mount between the control valve, A & B ports, and the motors. Advantage to Sun, besides being a good product, is they have a lot of dealers. Last I was buying Sun products, among many othe...

Re: Adaptor for Gassing Moles

Caddy Shack Alert!!!!

FYI...soot doesn't matter. Exhaust is mostly CO2, with some CO and NOX for fun, and that is what gets 'em.
And no fear of fire & flame!

Re: Hydraulic problem

If I understand how your system is working, you are able to slow down or stop the pump, without shifting the solenoid valve out of forward or reverse? If that's the case, when you stop the motor, and stop or slow down the supply of oil from the pump, you create an over-running load. The inertia of t...

Re: Adaptor for Gassing Moles

I have a .17 HMR with a scope. Do they really stick their heads up? I'm ready to party. Gophers sure do. They roam around a bit on the surface. See the little beasts running across the road all the time. We have some barn cats that will sit and wait for 'em to peek out. FYI, the guy that wrote that...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

Well...it's just as exciting than watching paint dry.... ;)
I've never sprayed on stain. Thought about re staining the porch with a sprayer, but went with a brush.

Looks a lot like work Bill.

Re: Adaptor for Gassing Moles

My neighbor in Oregon, used to sit out on a lawn chair, with a cooler of beer, and a 12 gage shotgun after he mowed. He'd wait for 'em to pop their littler heads up, and BLAM!
Left a few divots....but it worked. Divots were a lot less damage than the moles did.

Re: Adaptor for Gassing Moles

Oh, and one more note....have the tractor & hose into position. I cleared out a tunnel, went to the garage to get the tractor, and when I came back, the beastie was there trying to plug the thing back up.
Full throttle, and I flattened that one. He shoulda headed underground.....

Re: Adaptor for Gassing Moles

I used a piece of 1" aluminum tubing, leftover from some wind chimes I made, to slip in the exhaust pipe of the tractor. It doesn't fit tight, but it doesn't have to. As a matter of fact, I don't think you want it to, to prevent from constipating the engine. The hose I used is just a piece of 1...

Re: Q: Need some boot purchasing advice

Look at Matterhorns. We wore 'em in the mine.
Warerproof, oil-proof, mud-proof, hard toe....come in insulated, and non, and hold up better that any other work boot I have worn. Rough duty in a mine.....
They are spendy, but not if you figure by the mile.
