    Artificial Intelligence on the field?

    I agree with Dave, this is an interesting idea. How is the AI accessing or learning the manuals? Are there online manuals for everything you use, did you have to pay for the online manuals?

    Moving to USA

    I'm not in the business, so I can't be much help from that angle, but I wish you lots of luck and welcome to America, when you get here!

    What's your hoe doing?

    90 minutes seems about right.

    Yeah, you are right, I've got work for it anyway...

    Anybody put a winch on their backhoe, so they don’t get stuck in mud

    My last time stuck, which I think I mentioned in Jimmy's original stuck thread, was right next to my creek, where when it gets wet it stays wet. Like skyking mentions but not nearly as scary, I couldn't get a bite with the hoe bucket, I just pulled mud towards me. I was quite nervous that I'd be...

    What's your hoe doing?

    I'd like a good pile of composted manure... My buddy has horses and I always forget a container to take when I go over there. We've used it on a few things around the yard and Holy crap does it make things grow well. My hoe still sits. I haven't messed with it all for a couple months now. I do...

    Employee Search

    I'm not in the industry but run a few production lines in a high tech factory. We struggle to find good people too. I'm guessing that about 1 in 10 is the right fit for us and even then those are not cream of the crop. We don't pay real well but the work is easy. We can find someone that shows...

    what to do and what not to do when a engine runs on its own?

    Thanks for the explanation guys!

    what to do and what not to do when a engine runs on its own?

    I'm ignorant in such things... What in the world are you guys talking about? A machine won't turn off and increases in RPM until some of them explode? I think I can safely assume that cutting power to the machine not working is a cause but I don't understand why that would happen? I guess like a...

    need to buy a good underground utility locater ?

    Is there a service that would have something like this to either hire or rent? I know where the water shutoff is, in the front yard, but then it goes who-knows-where about 300 feet to the house. I'd rather not dig it up and I don't think Call Before You Dig spots water lines do they?

    Land has been cut and left in a mess. Best cheapest way to plant trees and fix it up?

    I watched a 33 acre plot of beautiful forest across the road from me get destroyed in pretty minimal time by a big excavator and eventually a big bulldozer. The hoe came in and knocked the trees over (but probably took a lot of stumps with them) and the pile looked similar to what you've got...

    What's your hoe doing?

    Great @cosmaar! Mine still sits with whatever the non-starting issue is. I keep finding other things to do than diagnose its trouble.

    Replacing halogen with leds

    Dave, I've heard the same thing with cities that installed LED stop lights. After the first good snow they realized a benefit of old school bulbs.

    What's your hoe doing?

    Looks like a box blade would do me nicely... The driveway looks great!

    NH Lb75.b Sticky Throttle

    Thanks for this write up and the tips @thepumpguysc . This is happening on my machine as well, same year, same model. I've just been dealing with it but now I'll have somewhere to check. It'd be nice for the machine to drop back down to idle when I let off the throttle. How did you mark the...

    Owner of some Heavy Equipment passed away

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I'm not sure of the amount of time for it to not feel insensitive but she probably wants stuff out and the money. "I'll give you 500 bucks for this pile of stuff."

    Owner of some Heavy Equipment passed away

    Again, thanks y'all. I appreciate the suggestions. Porsche is already gone, Carvana I guess. My wife was home the first time they (Carvana) showed up and said they were there for like 3 hours trying to get things running so they could get the Porsche out of the garage. Nuts. I'd be interested...

    Owner of some Heavy Equipment passed away

    Thanks guys. I'm not sure what she will want to do, really. I can certainly help some but I'm not smart enough, and don't really have the time to get smart enough about the bulldozer to help much beyond pointing her to a good avenue for that kind of sale. Also, for my own liability's sake I'd...

    Owner of some Heavy Equipment passed away

    Hey Gang, I just learned that my neighbor has passed away, leaving his wife with a few pieces of equipment that she has no understanding of. He's got a bulldozer (I've previously mentioned) that he was trying to get running, a skid steer, and likely some other stuff that I'm not sure about. I...
