Mar 7, 2018 | 19:16 3 Too big and heavy for the mail “person” to deliver ? Reply With Quote
farmaholic's Avatar Mar 7, 2018 | 19:21 4 Nah, just that it's always a bit of a depressing thing for me. At least there's fewer coming in the mail.

More farm consolidation or tent folding or failures.....

Always was always will be.

I really don't need anything, nothing pressing any way. Reply With Quote
Mar 8, 2018 | 00:46 5 Haven’t gotten ours yet. We did some shopping last week at the Edmonton sale and just got it all fixed up with fresh fluids to go off to battle with the poplars. Dad is having fun since it’s a little nicer and bigger than the old D6C. 😎



Got a brush rake as well which should make a nicer pile. Hope to keep it going steady for a while now. Reply With Quote

Sawfly, There was a guy down here near the Slum of the Ghetto that was actually looking for a newer model low acre 5710 or 5810 last spring. I think he found one. Sell your stuff on Kijiji, if the price is right there is always a buyer. Reply With Quote
makar's Avatar Mar 8, 2018 | 08:33 8 Purpose of the rake is to lose dirt and snow and to roll and shake your piles,if you want a brush pile full of dirt that will never burn use the dozer, on a small scale i have broke land ripping the stumps and roots with a rake, used to own a cat just like that but no cab.

farmaholic's Avatar Mar 8, 2018 | 08:41 10 Makar, is the blade on the picture woodland posted considered a brush rake? Reply With Quote
makar's Avatar Mar 8, 2018 | 08:48 11 Yes that is a brush rake, a brush piler was usually used after a brush cutter and had teeth but not to lose material between the the teeth, much like a comb, after a cutter the ground is smooth and sweeps nicely with a piler, the rake has coarse teeth to deal with the dirt and stumps that come with dozing.

Mar 8, 2018 | 10:27 17 Makar I imagine if they’re interested they’d be a great help to you. Not many brush cutters around here. Normally the trees get walked over with a regular blade and piled with the rake. Thanks for the hint about the finals. The neighbor had one pile up and destroyed the housing which was a lot of $$$$.

The idiot who had it before us removed the outer engine air filter and the inner got choked off and collapsed with a hole in it. Checked everything else over except that at the sale.

Farmaholic the rake is on it the picture and Dad is using the regular blade for walking over the trees.

Yesterday the neighbor got a guy in with a D8K clearing kitty corner to where we are. The other neighbor a mile over is burning brush piles...... lots going on in the neighbourhood. Reply With Quote
Mar 8, 2018 | 10:52 18 Those final drives leaking into the transmission must be a common problem. We had an 8h that did that too. As long as a guy checked the levels and added as needed it wasn’t a problem. Sadly it burnt up. Good idea to clean out stump pan. Reply With Quote

Scrap is correct, dealer told me take carbide openers off, scrap the rest. Reply With Quote
SASKFARMER3's Avatar Mar 8, 2018 | 19:05 20 Yep no value on 5710s

That Cat is nice wish I would of upgraded from my 1974 but it’s still working good.

A best smell around fresh pushed bush ground. Reply With Quote
