    • Well the Quadractor is back home

      I bought this maybe 10 years ago. I did a lot of work on it, sourced a parts machine and factory plow and 3 pt hitch. I never had the need for its primary use as a skidder. It was a tractor show novelty. 4wd, 4 wheel steer, weight is only about 500lb, 72:1 reduction, can skid 4000lb with 8 hp Briggs. Sold it and then bought the land/cabin. I began to miss it and occasionally checked CL. Well it popped up, clearly lost some of its luster but all there including parts.
      Time to bring it back to its glory

          Ah yes, very nice! I have a friend that does much like you and has money like you but lives on the west coast. He spends his money on houses, cars, and woodworking.

            I've always thought that you never truly know your car until you've had the entire dash out at least once.... although this may just have been because I was being called an idiot for having taken mine out! Contrary to popular opinion, it went back in fine....twice!

              that brings back all kinds of bad memories from when I replaced the AC evaporator on my Ford Focus. Shudder.

                • I've been doing some work on my second house (which is used for storage and workshop). About 10 years ago I had a guy do a lot of work on the downstairs section, including full rewiring. But I found stuff like this:

                  I noticed that when I passed close to a bush outside the house, a bird would fly out. Mama has some hungry little nestlings:

                  • I think that "Bubba's Electric" must be a national franchise. You surely hired them, whether you knew it at the time, or not. Now you get the fun of checking every bit of what they did. Leave one place un-examined, and you may get an unpleasant surprise one day.

                    One of their other franchisees apparently did work at my house some time prior to our buying it. Their prize-winning screwup was wiring 14 ga aluminum wire directly to a 40A dryer circuit.

                        Not massively familiar with US wiring. Had assumed that was just spare wires bundled like you would spare pairs in phone wiring....but is that supposed to be a joint in live mains cable passing through the box?! And is that the earth doing the same that surely should attach to the socket?!

                        Trust me, it's an international franchise..... and they do plumbing too!

                        Ooh, a free heater thrown in.... probably to help with the drying!

                              • Does everyone on the forum have to have two houses? (smiley included) Interesting transition that roofer has to do from roof to ladder. In the UK you have to have scaffolding now, even for single storey and personally I like handrails even if I'm standing on a chair and don't think I would even wear high heels if I were a girl.
