    In addition to more capacity everything should run better, you had some voltage drop with that long of a run of #12.

    Remains to be seen I bought the tires and wheels the rest came along
    Now I have no problems lots of respect. I was bitten a few times by Dogs a few times by my friends Wolf/K-9 cross when we played we both got to excited at times.

    She said I was the only one he would be that free with . just like me his hips got the best of him.

    It is snakes and needles that trigger a deep seated fear.

    No way did I hand trench that, did need to do some delicate areas by hand, but I rented a trencher from Home Depot for $200 for the day. Well worth it!
    The machine I was issued had 4 hours on it, it was sweet!

    I sure agree, Orlando doesn’t have much rural living anymore, my 3 acres is my oasis. If I didn’t already have this place I don’t think I’d be living in Orlando.

    I was glad I opted for the hydraulic Drive version. I almost went with the larger version, but it was quite a jump in rental cost.

    Benchmade and Spyderco both had a price increase this year.

    I’ve got a Benchmade Foray that I’d sell you for a really good price. It’s an awesome knife. I’ve used the crap out of it and it is super tough. Its got 20CV blade steel.

    Cole and I tried to get some fire to this engine, pulled the flywheel and cleaned everything, filed the points too. No go. I’ll work on it another time.

    This is the deer my buddy shot yesterday we couldn’t find. Hopefully he makes it. This picture was taken Monday.

    If you have confirmed no spark, replace the condenser.

    I’m getting spark at the points but not at the plug. Tried a different plug and checked the plug wire as well. Ordered new points, condenser, and coil.
