    ^^ I think JJ got this more as a shop “toy” then a tool, cause he can.  Can’t wait to play with it. I’m thinking a rear engine cage/bumper for my baja will be my first project.

    We will build it if it comes.

    I had a great MLK day. I took delivery of my new to me Case CX250D excavator/track Hoe. I have alwys went with Cat but this one came along with warranty and low hours for a 2016 model. We had a new hydraulic thumb added and will put it to work Doing demo here on the yard. it is also good for hauling offsite for demo / clean up jobs. Case has a patent on a DPF that does not require DEF fluid. So may offer some cost savings and headaches there. have you heard anything good or bad about the new CASE equipment Andy? If you have serviced or worked with any.

    No DEF your golden!!! I haven’t heard or seen anything good from that stuff.

    I haven’t seen anything negative on them yet. Today I was out working on some John Deere stuff.

    Do something

    Andy , I read your response and got excited too! No DEF would be great. I meant to say Their tier 4 system dose not use a DPF, So it dose not loose all its power and you don’t have reburning cycles or costly filter replacement to deal with. Here is a quote from there site and a link to a video explaining it, If you interested.

    Fuel Efficiency
    D Series excavators use an SCR Tier 4 Final solution that’s cleaner burning and provides up to 14% increased fuel efficiency without sacrificing power. As an after-treatment system, SCR lets the engine run at peak performance to provide full throttle response throughout the work cycle. And best yet, SCR is simple. No DPF regeneration. No new maintenance. No downtime. Just pour and go.

    I’ve played with lots of different units over the years. Case and CAT always seemed to wind up holding up best and being the most comfortable for me.

    Good to hear! We have ran Cats in the past. All my wheel loaders are Cat. Just couldn’t find a Cat Excavator in the size or price point I was at. Equipment is harder to find at the moment due to all the construction around me. I hope the CASE will be around a bit. I have no complaints after its first couple days of operation.

    Big thing is to keep the basic maintenance up. Grease and check fluid levels every day it is used.

    I have this crank stand, I think it’s genuine VW tool, don’t use it much. Anyone want to give me $50 for it? Or a couple KCW shirts?? 20180905_183013[1]20180905_183023[1]

    I will give you $50 or buy you the shirts you want or both if that tool is still available.

    I had my friend Rob Rodine fix my forklift back up!!!!  It was a POS when we got it… But we pushed it on and made it work for a few months… Till it died..  Rob put a new HB motor on it, flushed everything, had my tires foamed…  Shit is like new now… and a REAL BACK SAVER!

    Thanks Rob!
