Here's my day, look up prime tech 600, this is a bad motha.. She will ruin anything infront of its day. I think it's a d8 platform with a c13 engine. I'm not a tractor guy, I just fix the cutting drum.

I brought my camper to my remote storage facility for the winter Friday night. After lifting my wife's truck the tow bar won't fit anymore. ](*,) ](*,) I had to get silly with some harbor freight crap.

They use them for orchards, vineyards, fire trails and forest.

I saw a demo about them being used for land mines. Pretty wild machines.

Well , I went out to adjust the brakes on my 65 this weekend. I figured the rear shoes had plenty of time to center up and the pedal had got a little soft. I jacked up the front, popped the caps and spun the wheel around to locate the adjusters. In doing so I noticed mud in the drum! I looked closer and found that a freaking dirt dobber/wasp had built on my brake pad. ](*,) So I had to pull the drum to clean that chit up. I pulled the drum and it got worse ! Leaking wheel cylinder and the shoes and drum was soaked. I pulled the other side and it was leaking too, not as bad. I called and found new wheel cylinders and shoes local and got to work. I went to change the shoes and could not find my tool to remove the clips and springs from the shoes! #-o I decided I could use my super human thumbs to do the work!, after completing both sides this way my thumbs are still sore after two days. I got the part number for the brake shoe tool and told my wife I would love to have one in my stocking!
Got the brakes bled and put some miles on it this weekend. She stops real good now! \:D/

Nothing worse than jacking up your fingers when you don't have the right tool. Sounds like you got it done though!

Sir, yes sir! Thanks for the motivation. I'm going to spend some time with Ruben.

Just spent most of the last two weekends installing the kids xmas present.

Image

me and the mrs built the wooden fence(badly) removed washing line and unused old sandpit, leveled wonky old lawn and installed front fence.

Image

this was the easy part, 14 foot cheap pool.

best thing is it's big enough for mum and dad to enjoy and less lawn to mow.

Nice, but after 25 years of pool maintenance, I'd rather mow the lawn. Smile

be lucky if this thing lasts 5 years, and we can pack it away in winter.

the original plan was to retain the sloping lawn behind the new wooden fence and have it done there, but I got a car to build!
so this will do for now.
