  1. I passed it on to my Dad thinking he would be all over it, but he wasn’t.
  2. Our new Pete’s with the 15 liter Cummins have been great also.
  3. Ours are baffled. We can haul 52k in the tank which like 4650 gals. The tank pictured is a 5000 gal, when loaded is about 6-8 inches down from the lid. It pulls decent, but our 6200 baffled tank pulls better.
  4. We haul liquid fertilizer in them. It’s an old food grade tank that we stripped the outer skin and insulation off of to cut weight.
  5. I was running one of the Pete’s this weekend.
  6. The cowl on the front of the cabs are different, making it not work.
  7. Oh, and fun with electricity. Cant beat it. I have gotten more comfortable with it since I have been working with the ready mix plants.
  8. Agree on having the right spec’d truck. We got guys that borderline fight for the truck with the arm rest on the right side of the seat. 🤦🏻
  9. Wilbur that posts here. Lean,Mean, tonnage machine
  10. Mack powered OshKosh front loads are a thing
  11. We had this happen at Ritchie Bros while we were there picking up a truck. We drained the air and we aired it up off one of the other trucks and she came to life.
  12. Since we have completely hijacked this thread. I called Mark the other day and asked if he could get some loads to Lowell “ yeah, got 2 pulling into Thornton now” can’t beat it. Stop in some time, I was the one taking a pic of ya going by the other day.
  13. The main problem is that in Illinois you are only legal with I believe with 6.75 yards in a front. Where as a rear you can haul 9yards. With that being said the big companies run 10 yards in both. We don’t like making untimely monetary deposits to the government, so we run legal.
  14. I was very positive about it. The problem was that it was to tall to fit under the plant to load it. The way our weight laws are in Illinois, you can’t haul enough on it legally to get real excited about. Essentially you are making the contractors job easier with less manpower and not getting anymore $$ for the Crete.
  15. Occasionally, but tend to use Sid Kamp when we need help. But you never know.
  16. Got some Orings tonight at Napa. We are in business now! Shifts nice, an the truck runs real good. Thanks guys.
  17. Thank you 85snowdog. Everything seems good except for the orings. Hoping the local auto parts store has something that will work
  18. Learn all kinds of things here if you want too!
  19. I have no experience with the 3 position button like this one. The one I worked on many years ago had the splitter on top and the range selector plunger mounted on the stick. I was 16 or 17 at the time.
  20. The parts blow up is just what I needed. Thank you, I knew someone here would have the info
  21. It is not. We sold it at Ritchie Bros a few years ago
  22. This knob is in our IH 4300. It was leaking and wouldn’t shift into high range, so I figured it had a bad Oring in it. So in the process of taking it apart it fell and the pieces kinda went every where. To my defense, we didn’t have any orings, but I may need some guidance on putting it back together. Anyone have a parts blow up? I’m fairly certain one Oring melted away to goo, outside of that, I think I have a handle on putting it back together correctly. Haven’t had one of these apart in about 22 years. IMG_1617.MOV
