    A communicator stone? I did that, heavily. Is there another way short of wet seating them? The only brushes that aren't fully down are oversized ones on the negative poles, which are actually for a 300, and are less than a 1/16 just on the tail right now so it's like it has regular brushes atm. Is there something that you use to seat them faster?

    And here's the machine, before the alternator swap. The horns are already gone, and it should be coming off the trailer next weekend and onto the new skid.

    Well, didn't get the skid for the truck built, but i got almost all the pieces cut. First chance to work my 72 sa200 a bit, the brushes arent seated fully yet but it's gonna be awesome when they do. Nice dry arc, a bit harsh atm but fully seated brushes will fix that right up. Engine runs very good, and I've chased down all the small leaks and such. Added an alternator to replace the old charging generator, so that took a bunch of time sat. Salvaging angle and channel slows down the process a bit, but it will be worth it when i get it done next weekend. This pic doesn't really show much, but it's what I'm working with... ignore the mess lol. And now for some reason my pics are sideways lol.

    Fair enough. I guess with my lack of equipment all of the tree work I've done is continuous hard labor, so i haven't gotten to that point yet :lol: I work at a pretty good clip, but i guess my point is that the wear and tear is real, and noticeable. I'm only 36, in decent shape other than a little gut caused by eating and drinking horribly for years, and out work most people on a jobsite. However I'm definitely feeling the years of work, and i can tell it's slowly wearing me down.

    Yup, not good. From what I've read it was due to an overpressure situation, possibly caused by electronic controls. I'm not sure how that would happen exactly, and to the point of piping failures that would lead to gas release, but not good.

    :lol: Mick, I'm gonna have to agree with Sean here that wear and tear is real. As is the costs of working so far from the house and working that many hours. We were talking about it at work, and we have decided that we can tell who has actually been working for longer than a decade in construction by how they walk and move. The guys who are new to it walk around with a purpose, thinking that walking fast will speed them up. Experienced guys walk with a slight hitch in their step because of wear and tear, and don't move too fast, because they don't care to. They get their speed by thinking ahead and knowing all the tricks to do the task with as little effort as possible. They also can work continuously all day every day, because they have figured out the pace that allows that.

    For something that will cost a few hundred, you can save your body and get more done. It's a perfectly fine idea.

    Yes, a crane sure beats a pole truck. Little bit of a price difference tho. I was planning on using it for way more than trees, mainly as a way to switch truck bodies depending on my job at the time, and the ability to lift things is a very nice extra bonus. For small fabrication stuff it would be awesome. And it still is far better than dicing it small enough and lifting by hand when doing trees.
