72" manual soil conditioner Broken :-( 11/18/2009 2:25:50 PM   (Total replies: 1)
Recently took apart the Bobcat soil conditioner I have. I bought it used from the rental fleet at a nearby bobcat dealer. What I found was very disturbing. The female spline (10 tooth) was stripped. I now know why the drum stopped rotating! The obvious fix is to replace the female spline part which is of one peice construction and is connected to a square tube that drives the drum at a cost of $1000USD +. Any thoughts or comments? I was thinking if I could find a female 10 tooth ...

Air conditioning re-charge 4/2/2009 11:58:08 AM   (Total replies: 1)
I have an 2006 T-190 gold package loader that needs some air conditioning work. My shop has a machine to recharge the a/c in cars and trucks. My question is how many pounds does it take to fill the system on my T-190?

Thanks all! I really appericiate the info. Got a job tomorrow, then putting the machine in the shop for touch up paint, filters and oil change. I do know the clutch is working so will inspect for leaks as dye was added last time. I'll let you know how the recharge works out.

Re: best size skid steer for mowing 9/4/2008 5:50:27 AM   (Total replies: 1)
My Buddy recently purchased 12 acres. I was advising him to get a utility tractor with a 3 point mower. He decided on a zero turn mower instead. Man! I've mowed his property with both the tractor and now his new mower. If all you are interested in is mowing, those Bad Boy zero turns with a 6' deck at about 12 mph is great. It is unreal how much area you can cover with one of those. His also has a perkins (Cat) diesel motor. I thought he was nuts. I admit I was wrong on that!

Home made Tilt-Tach 5/14/2008 8:14:31 PM   (Total replies: 1)
Got an idea and wanted some input. I recently purchased a fork rotator aka "cascade" system at a local auction. This item is designed to be mounted onto the back plate of a forklift and uses a hydraulic motor to rotate the forks 180 degree. Many use it with bins to dump scrap into larger containers. I was thinking, why not mount this to my current fork back plate for the bobcat and instead of installing the forks, mount a bucket to the front. This will allow full 180 degree rotation of the ...

Re: Trailer? 6/14/2007 10:19:10 PM   (Total replies: 1)
I bought a dump trailer before buying my skid steer. Thinking that a dump trailer would be the best way to tsp my Bobcat. The trailer I bought had a low profile to keep the deck low (easier loading). This is good for loading and unloading however, not the best to dump. Topsoil has got to be one of the most difficult loads to dump and you must have a steep angle to do so. A trailer built higher would be best for that. The ramp issue can be a muscle builder. Even though you may think that ...

Good luck passing your CDL. - I believe if your CGVW is 23,000 or more you need a Class A CDL. I was stopped after driving all day just 10 miles from home. I drive an F-350 and pull a tri-axle trailer rated at 21,000#. Yes I had a radar detector and that is what got me pulled over in the first place. Long story short... Officer told me to unhook my trailer at a rest area and I was free to go. I did not have a CDL. I had to call dear old dad (has CDL) to come get the trailer. You can ...

Trenching rates 4/10/2007 8:00:55 PM   (Total replies: 1)
Hello all. Long time reader, first time post. Recently I was asked if I would quote some trench work with my T-190 to install field tile. I would have to rent the attachment from the local dealer. Should I charge my hourly rate with attachment, or by the foot? Along those same lines, in average soil, how productive can I expect to be with a standard flow machine going 6 inches wide at about 3-4 ft depth?
