    Kansas as opposed to Ohio it's an entirely different crop and methods .In Ohio very little wheat is grown and that is soft winter wheat taken off around the 4th of July .Kansas is part of the bread basket growing hard red sown in spring harvested in fall . The corn stalks are just ground up with big wing mowers and no tilled in .Soy beans they don't usually do any thing with the residue .They used to burn the fields but haven't done that for decades .However every so often on what few wheat is grown they catch a field on fire and burn up a $200 thousand dollar combine plus the whole field of wheat .

    More on this .I joke about being in the middle of a giant corn field but it's the truth .Corn as far as the eye can see,about like Iowa only with better corn .These farmers burn what they want when they want .Slash piles with a bunch of old tires and asphalt roofing and the black smoke just rolls .Nobody ever says a thing to them .

    It's in effect March ,April and May ,Oct and Nov .I have a slash pile I won't torch off until June .However on or actually in a sand stone patio I see little problems arising .The house is 600 feet from the road and I doubt any "smokey the bear " types would even see it being on the back side of a brick house .

    I've got a couple of the older 335's ,previous model to the 338 .The balance is great but it lacks the power of a 200T .A couple of the tree services tried them out as a cheaper alternative to the 020/200T but the oilers failed in less than a year .It's only an $8 fix but you have to field strip the saw to get to the pump .

    Most likely if that 200 is leaning out it's caused by funky seal caused by funky bearings .Both bearings and two new seals used to be around 60 bucks from a dealer .If nothing else change the chain side seal which is relatively easy to do .Cost you about 10 bucks at a dealer or you could find them on flea bay often .

    vharrison replied to a thread Dot and CDL stuff in Gear Forum
    Kyle, who told you doing trees would be considered commerce? Go straight to the source, go to your local DMV. Ask them in person because like you said, every state is different. I don't have to mess with DOT with our trucks, as far as registering them, but you might. I mean, they can inspect them because they are commercial, but that is not a big deal. If everything is in order, you are on your way down the road, if not you probably don't want to be on the road. DMV will tell you about insurance requirements as well. Fuel tax? Never heard of it for our trucks unless it is rolled into getting a tag. Inspections, Florida does require that anymore, but like I said DOT can inspect when they want. Me thinks you are making a mountain out of a mole hill.

    Al Smith replied to a thread Wire Rope in The House Of Splice!
    I've only done a couple of eye splices which were on the winch lines of a line truck 1/2" cable .Wire served .It isn't a joy to do and you'd best have a good pair of leather gloves because that wire will eat you up .
