Re: Dozer blade 1872

I don’t see the “plates” that bolt to the frame, if you have a 60” deck you should have these already. I think 450 is a fair price especially the Scarcity of cubs in Washington state.

I’ve seen many plows with the holes for the cutting edge worn off. I have yet to see the “ratchet” brake like that!

Re: Custom build 1772 Diesel

I think the 982 fire tractor was red power 2007 at Bloomsburg. Frame is from a 2082 I bought with no engine or tires. Funny part is I bought that 2082 around 2012? I just bought the tires/rims in February and deck from the same guy last week! I’ve been watching Dave’s projects for years now, this on...

Re: 2082

I have a 2082 I’m planing on selling soon, I’m thinking 1500 as a starting price, it has a 54” deck. If I included a 551 blower I’d want a bit more, your not far off. I’m guessing it has a 3pt? Mine does not.

Re: 1872 wiring question

Sounds like someone was having starting issues and added a ground. It’s not a bad idea, I never liked how the ground went to the frame and not to the engine block. If it’s a worker, I would go to the engine mounting bolt and run it like that.

Re: Best use for a 147?

Do you have a rear sleeve hitch? If so then yes it will work. If you do not have the sleeve hitch option then, no it will not work. Due to the way the rock shaft works, it will assist all attachments front mid rear.

Fan is installed and working, paint on the inside for the sake of sealing the wood and to give more light to reflect off of. After lunch I’ll build a door. The parts washer might actually live inside the booth! I’ll try that out later today too!

I do like hanging spinning idea, the plan was to get one for the bottom.
Our A/c unit in the house uses 14x30 I’m going use the same size In case it clogs up, I always keep a few around.
