    Field repair on the chipper yesterday...the bolt that connects the bottom of the feed roller bar to the push rod underneath...fell out. Yes it was already slack, and so was I.
    We got to the job set up started up and no forward...only reverse.
    We first whittled a stick to try and jury rig it, didn't work...then remembered I always carry a set of new knife bolts and nuts...one was JUST the right size, and the combi spanner fit the nut, and I had allen wrenches for the bolt...whew!!!

    Note to self...don't postpone maintenance!!!
    (and...put the adjustable spanner and small vise grips BACK in my toolbox...)
    Keep smiling, they will wonder what you're up to...

    We were sent to help lift low lines and trim branches out of the way.
    It was listed as an air handler in my paperwork.
    The last few miles were the worst. It was wider than the road and no maintenance had been done for years. We busted ass to keep it moving. Made it without a scratch.

    it was close when we finished. We went back and put new belts on the bandit chipper while the mechanic adjusted the clutch in my truck. After that I went and saw my tax guy and back to the shop to mess with my pickup. The service trailer brake system indicator comes up now. I havenít been towing a trailer for weeks. I traced wires and found nothing. Pulled connections apart and cleaned them. Still on. Pisses me off. I never had problems when I wired in brake controllers. Now they make them integrated and there is issues.

    Rich, I've done that kind of stuff for probably 25 years working with a local house moving company. I get a call from him about once every year or two to help with clearance trimming for a move. When I was younger I even rode on top of the roof of the house and trimmed limbs out of the way as we rolled down the street.
