careful Steve, you might get that truck dirty if you keep taking it out of the garage like that :ROFLMAO:

came out great! and the set up looks awesome.
As much as I hate to do it...it was necessary. Just turned 12K miles on it. Not bad for a 2018.

I had a customer to bring 5 Cedar logs for sawing last evening but it was too dark to do anything other than unload them.

The U25 handled that chore quite nicely.

So I went back this morning using the M4900 to move them to a more suitable place.

The Thumb on the forks helps to stabilize the logs. It will be at least mid-December before I can get to sawing these logs.

Looks like you have a fairly substantial sized counter balance weight on the mini? That must help quite a bit when spinning a load over the sides of the tracks? Did you add that weight or did you buy it that way?

That is the way it came and I suppose that it is not an add-on. If I normally had to do night work, it would have lights.....probably will add them anyway because it was dark last evening.

I may even investigate adding better head lights and add rear lights to the M4900. Did I say that it was dark last evening? :rolleyes:

Widened the driveway in a few places, and added 2.49 tons of 1" minus cinders. Rolled it in after.

I’ve got a question for you folks that use/abuse their tractors similar to the way I use mine! As noted in my previous post, I’ve had two rear flats. I have an MD60 with weighted (2 on each) rears. Closing in on 70 yo, it kicks my butt to remove/replace those tires! I may not be able to handle many more of these encounters in my future. Is there an easy way to challenge a tire change? memtb

A local tire shop that deals in ag and construction tires should be able to take care of tire changes and ballasting (if loaded). If using mobile service instead of taking the machine or wheel to their shop, they just need to be able to get a service truck to it. Of course all that costs, but it is much less physically demanding than doing it yourself.

Used mine as scaffolding. Set myself and the welder on the roof to reach an I-beam. Just beat the rain by minutes

I failed to mention an unusual occurrence that confronted me the other day when I was busy clearing riverbank and putting very heavy rears back on after a flat!

I started out with a full fuel tank, and noticed that I seemed to be using a lot of fuel.I blamed it on the fairly heavy workload placed on the tractor. After a while, not being very attentive to the gauges, I noticed that I had used a lot of fuel! I immediately went into “panic mode”, thinking the worst after a punctured radiator, and 2 flats......my mind immediately went to a ruptured fuel tank! There was fuel running off of the rear of the engine......well above the fuel tank. Thankfully, it wasn’t the tank.....but what! Raising the hood, allowed me to see that a small low pressure fuel line (I presume a tank return line) had become disconnected at a tee! Why....How....but, an easy fix! Seems there’s always a new or unusual challenge! memtb

Broken waste line repair today. House is sold, closing Dec 6th. Municipal sewer inspection failed it due to break in line. It appeared that the joint wasn't glued, or perhaps, not primed.

Easy-peasy job for a cold/windy Black Friday.

I had a similar occurence a couple of months back.
Finishing up logging for the day, I returned to the M to find it sitting in a widening puddle of fuel.
I went into hyper drive and hopped in the cab and gunned it for all it was worth towards home which was about a half mile away.
Luckily, or unluckily, the fuel tank holds 23+ gals and was over half full so I made it back with fuel to spare.
I dropped the tank; which entails removing a number of other components too while lying under the tractor.
The return line had been popped off its fitting at the bottom of the tank; probably while skidding logs through slash strewn logging trails.
Had I made a more thorough initial look-see, I likely could have reinstalled the line with out dropping the tank.
Still beats a ruptured tank
