    Mower needed

    Well the 42” 14 year old craftsman LT1000 is heading to the hunting camp so I need a new one for Home. I cut about 2 acres with lots of tree so a zero turn only makes sense, looking 52 - 60” deck and have about a 5K budget to work with. Ariens ikon has me intrigued but also looking at a couple used stand up Wright’s with less than 200 hrs. Also looking at the z series. Thoughts?

    Steel Roofing on the House

    I have it on my hunting camp in the UP of mi, 200+ inches of snow per year sealed the deal for me, I no longer shovel rather, I let gravity take over. No issues over the past 8 years but again it’s only a 24x24 foot cabin

    Atv - Snow Tires or Chains

    tracks, tracks, tracks if you ask me. You can get some pretty good deals on used ones as well, just need to buy the mounting hardware specific to the machine. I have a 825 gator and without tracks I go no where in the winter with my snow load.

    Alumalite or Ice Trek skid house

    We also have slush and at least 4-10 inches of snow which makes moving mine with a sled very difficult if not impossible.

    Dozer issues

    I have a late 70’s model John Deere 450C that has been faithful to me until this weekend however, I don’t fault the dozer rather the driver. Long story short, opening up a food plot I sucked in a stick which crushed the oil filter thus causing the loss of pressure and engine oil. I did try to free the stick, but then shut off the dozer once I saw the oil. The dozer was not running more than 2 minutes after the stick crushed the filter. Freaking out, I did try to quickly turn the dozer over for peace of mind and just heard a click which sounds like the starter engaging the fly wheel but nothing else. I have 2 questions: Question 1. Can you pull a dozer that is in gear (reverse to be exact) if the engine is seized without depressing the clutch? I hooked up my tractor and pulled it off a few rough areas to get a better look at it after the issue happened and the tracks turned over without any issues. My logical thought process is you can’t because if the pistons are seized the engine is locked which would eliminate any movement of the tracks. Question 2. The stick or let’s say tree also ripped off a wire from the alternator, does that have any effect on starting the dozer? I know where it goes and I need a new butt connector when I get back there in 2 weeks with fresh oil and filter. I know if an alternator is bad, it drains the battery but this is not the case I still have over 13V at the battery. Any input would be appreciated.

    Dozer issues

    Just got a call that the crankshaft is cracked on the dozer, he can’t find One anywhere I guess. I guess everything else is fixed and he sent out the current crank to get polished and before that it was inspected by some Machinist that discovered the crack. Just my luck! If anyone knows where I can find a 450c crank please let me know. Thanks

    Alumalite or Ice Trek skid house

    My house weighs about 900 but it’s a tad bigger at 8x12 with 9 foot interior height. once it’s moving it pulls fine with my side by side but the issue is getting it moving as I don’t have chains. But I do have tracks, this is a great setup for me for a Day house and I only fish the chain of lakes my cottage is on.

    Vikings VS. Saints

    Bama is a powerhouse, that’s why everyone despises them including me:) they are the best team in the league again this year. Similar to the Pats, you can hate them all u want mostly because u can’t beat them. I feel the same about OhHowIhateOhiostate as I am a wolverines fan!
