    I bought a set off e bay. They did not have the inner lip cutout for the rim. I have a lathe so I fixed that. If yours don't have that cutout, they may come loose later, check them.

    Covid 19 may be over exaggerated but, when it hits one of your family members, it's a different story. My sister ( in Ga) spoke to here son last night( in Texas) who has been tested positive.

    BX23S loader limit

    Who ever picks up anything at the "pin" ?? You would have to remove the bucket or forks and hang a rope or chain around your weight. Those #'s are like mpg for cars. Manufactures put #'s that are created in ideal circumstances, not real world. What you can lift is always less than what you...

    Found this site today

    They have a spring that pulls the tongs together. You have to manually spread the tongs to slip them on the tree, when you let go, it clamps down enough to hold untill you start pulling on it. I have a small and large one. Does really help if you have someone to do the clamping.
