Taking Crawlers into Canada

8 posts in this topic

Question for those that know - do crawlers have to be completely devoid of any soil or peat, as long as they are on newspaper? We try to clean them up as good as possible, and pack them on newspaper when customers ask. But I am just curious how picky the border patrol is. Thanks!

For the record, questions referring to bringing anything into Canada need to be specific to individual Provinces. Just like many States have different laws and regulations, Provinces have their own. So research the Province that you're going to and where you're entering for the answer.

All that plus questions on the world wide web of misinformation won't get you the benefit of doubt at any border, Canadian or American. smile

Very good point! I was refering to the province of Ontario, but only because I assumed (and we know what happens then)that was the province he was asking about. Going to the HSOforum of the MNR for the particular province you are seeking information about is the smartest way to learn what is expected.

I don't remember ever having them actually check the crawlers. When we've told them they're either in bedding or newspaper they've been good with that. That is at the Pembina crossing.

We got checked once at the Warroad port of entry, the crawlers were in paper bedding, the officer remarked that the bedding was too dark, after that we make sure to wash the crawlers in two seperate water's and put them in clean paper bedding, but haven't been checked since.

We were asked if they were in dirt or bedding, but never checked. First time I had taken any in tho.

    • Had an 09'. Got rid of it. Also,  you could not keep the front end aligned.  Otherwise a very nice truck.
    • Helps when I comprehend what I read.  I actually just cut the handle off my tongue jack on my Yetti and welded on 3/4 nut too.  My M18 drill with 1,200 in-lbs (2704-20) and it has no problem raising or lowering the tongue.  Biggest thing I noticed was making sure my drill was on the #1 low speed setting.      As far as torque goes and harming your auger.  I think you are totally fine and shouldn't harm anything.  The max amount that these K-Drills and Clam plates are drilling these days with the big drills are 8".  Most sized augers these days have no problem turning a 10" auger which is nearly twice as large of an area than an 8" auger.  Being 2 strokes can normally operate in any orientation without being damaged the only concern I would have would be your gears and any shifting of grease inside operating the auger head on its side under load.    They say Ions will do 10" holes but after I talked to their customer service reps about it, I wouldn't trust an Ion with a 10" more than I do a wet fart.  Just the fact that they don't even sell a 10" package indicates there could possibly be issues with torque and reliability when operating the 10" auger "accessory".  For now I'd just stick to your strike master going up and save your Ion any extra wear and tear.  Maybe even ask Santa for some electric jacks this Christmas
    • As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. - Town Hall   See for yourself.. U.S. Dept of Labor / BLS Date Viewer   Whaaa ???   OH, MY....  
    • I wouldn't do that for each one. I was wondering if you couldn't cut a winch down, or maybe just leave it as is, so you could attach a drill to the low speed post and tack weld/rig a socket or something for the other side and just hold it in your hand. It probably won't work because it sounds too easy. 
    • My, such big words!! Yer a talented liddle Smurf, aintcha? We might as well get to work doin' what we were accused of, munchkin!!! Like Carly Simon said, "no one does it better"....
