    Just realized something…

    Just turned 75 and try not to act my age. Our 4YO daughter keeps me steppin' :)

    Propane question?

    Must be an awful shortage of real news. A day or two ago there was a headline "Genius Hack To Keep Clippings Out of Flower Beds". It explained that you should use a string trimmer in a direction that throws the clippings away from the flower bed. When did common sense become a genius hack?

    Propane question?

    Been clocking cover screws since the 1970's. It takes less than a second and looks nicer - especially on covers with multiple screws. Never heard anything about setting traps to catch amateurs. Several of the guys I worked with do the same. If you really want some entertainment start a...

    Propane question?

    The NEC has wording to include "metallic", ie: conductive stuff to ground/bond. PVC items are fine. Also grounding is different from bonding. Sorry I didn't 'splain it better. All metallic systems need to be grounded or bonded. PVC, wood, etc are OK to use for whatever the building codes...

    Propane question?

    There's a bell curve for every vocation but some people don't want to realize it. Whether it's baggers at the supermarket or brain surgeons. Wifey recently had successful cataract surgery. A large part of the success was due to her research.

    Do anything when you were young that amazes you now?

    Never had any problems with Jarts at home. However, when I was around 20 and worked for a small electrical contractor there was a mishap at our first (and only) company picnic. One of my coworkers took a hit to his ankle when he got in the way of an incoming Jart. Alcohol may have been involved.

    2015 BX2200D with 3709 hours

    Welcome aboard! I'd hold out for something with fewer hours. I had a heat-only cab on the last tractor. With doors off and a small fan it was definitely better than my open station tractors. It sounds a little undersized for your intended uses.

    Concealed Carry Gun?

    For WFM - My first CC was a Colt Detective Special with factory electroless nickel finish. You can poke a hole in anything within reasonable range just by wishing it had one with that little 6-rounder. Had it to the club's outdoor 25 yard range many years ago and noobs chuckled till they saw...

    Nah, it was worth restating. Nah, it was worth restating. :) :)

    Planted 80 green giants last october. All are doing pretty good except these two.

    I know very little about plants and what all could affect them. I do know that a fertilizer mishap by a neighbor killed a small blue spruce at our first property. Could be something either in the soil there or something that was deposited there?

    Concealed Carry Gun?

    Sorry, not much help from me. I've found the PERFECT carry gun at least 6 times.

    New 7060HD coming in 2 days. Any advice ?

    Congrats and enjoy! Read the manual twice and don't drive around with the loader any higher than necessary.

    Fitting 60" Zero-Turn in 72"-wide Trailer?

    I'd ask the seller. May be as easy as taking a bungee cord to hold the discharge chute up.

    2003 kubota B2410 with Loader and two other attachments value?

    UPDATE Looks like that seal was really needed. Swap was simple and didn't take long. The old seal wasn't difficult to remove from the piston:)

    Who owns what ?

    Which underground wires? In our area if the wires are on the utility side of the meter, the utility is responsible. Some places, the utility lands on an property owner's pole and the property owner is responsible for anything after that. Likewise, any onsite wiring to other structures, site...

    Sounds fishy to me.

    2003 kubota B2410 with Loader and two other attachments value?

    Sounds like a winner to me! One note of caution. It has the same style loader my B7500 had (with the bar that runs over the hood). My practice has always been to run without the loader and frame unless I was using it because it is so easy on and off, plus the tractor is a lot more nimble...

    Who owns what ?

    Been a while since I've done a residential service but I believe it's still the same: Overhead service - Customer installs and owns from the weatherhead down, including an anchor point for the power company. Customer needs to leave tails at the head for the power company to connect with their...
