    Expanding field, clearing stumps.

    Congrats on the selling of your business and your move And thanks for your service! I‘ve been fighting a similar battle, slowly clearing some of my land. I’ve come to the realization that I will eventually need to hire/rent a backhoe for my largest stumps. I have a bit larger tractor, for...

    Propane cost

    Just paid $1.69 a gallon here, last year $2.19, both were price before early pay discount. We own our tank, and only fill once a year under the “Summer Fill” (best rat period) our supplier offers. Mike

    It's Propane Time....

    Mine was filled yesterday, 8-30-23, $1.69 a gallon before the discount if I pay within 10 days, check went out today. I own my tank, and had signed up for the “summer fill” rate (no extra charge). I only needed 205 gallons to get me to 80%. We burn wood as our main heat source and last winter...

    Dryer cleaning. PSA

    Helped my daughter move into a house this weekend, it’s furnished with a dryer. We pulled the lint screen, unbelievably clogged up, I don’t believe the previous renters ever cleaned it. I cleaned the hose and exterior vent, now I wish I had opened the dryer to do a inside cleaning. Mike

    Here we go....

    Amazing, but a bit unsettling too. I think my wife would tell me she’s leaving but that I was welcome to go with her 😆 Mike

    In-ground Pool Utilities

    Sounds Pretty well thought out, we have had two above ground pools and 8 years ago installed an in ground pool. I may have missed it but are you going salt water? It’s the only way to go In my opinion. Once I open my pool and get it balanced I rarely have to do anything other than dropping in...

    Recovered B8200 - Found abandoned

    That’s a good point, water will separate from the oil and typically settle to the bottom over time.

    Recovered B8200 - Found abandoned

    I think addressing the fuel system first would be advised. If the tank isn’t too difficult to remove I’d pull It, empty and clean. I’d replace fuel filter too (fill the new one with diesel and install if possible). You will need a good battery and possibly a jump pack, it’s probably going to...

    Recovered B8200 - Found abandoned

    I agree with not removing the injectors ( my suggestion to remove was only if a cylinder lubricant was added). Mike

    Recovered B8200 - Found abandoned

    Have you checked the oil for water? Since it’s turning over easily with a breaker bar, I’d be inclined to move forward with attempting to start it. If you add any type of lubricant to the cylinders just be sure to spin the motor over without the injectors to clear them out, you don’t want a...
