  • Just figured out you are pretty local to me. I am in Lake K. I'm looking to buy a older International track loader for rural retirement property development. I have an older Dynahoe 140 as well and a David Brown 990. Going through the same learning curve on all of this. I appreciate the starter/alt contact.

  • Greetings: From an ex LI NYker. Now LA resident, it is the better cold I escaped from. As a retired maintenance. engr. I appreciate someone doing their own repairs when practical and with all the parts and tools at your disposal. Then I get to watch you play with the big-boy Tonka toys. I have not determined if you are in the Catskill or the Adirondack (I used to be a Boy Scout camper in the Livingston Manor area. The hiking and camp food are missing perks. Ely & Cody are very cool. (Are those tumors on Ely`s hindquarters - hopefully you watch out for him?) Both dogs seem to know when to back away from danger. Your work garage seems kinda comfy, but you don`t tell much about your personal situation; okay by me. Hope the Covid-19 has passed you by, I got my vaccine. Thank you for including us on your daily errands and very good camera positioning. I like to watch the flapper atop the exhaust pipe.

  • For new/NOS rollers like that, it's probably a good idea to running it back and forth with a chain/band-wrench until it's loosened up before installing the track. If you can barely move it with your hands, the track isn't going to have much more of a grip on it.

  • As wonky and inefficient as it may be due to friction and tolerance-stacking, the way that loader is set up rubs me in all the right ways. I've always loved complex-cantilever mechanisms. It sorta reminds me of the lift mechanisms on the old-school Earth-Movers/Scrapers my father used to take me out to watch as a child. At my childhood home, there was a massive construction site right across the street. My father built me a sandbox right out in the front-yard, so I could watch the real deal while I was playing with my toys. This was in the late-'80s, which is what I consider to be at the upper-limit of the "Golden-Age" of construction equipment. All of the equipment they used were Cats from the '50s, '60s and '70s. With old equipment (I'll go with Cranes for the sake of the argument), you could find the limits by letting the machine start to tip just a little bit. With modern equipment, if you try to do that, you'll break the machine long before it starts tipping. This is not because they've gotten better at keeping them from tipping. It's because older equipment was over-built, mostly due to the fact that they didn't have computer-analysis to establish the specific working stresses. Newer equipment is under-built, because they know exactly how much stress it's going to see and where, and they play a game of meeting bare-minimum-standards. In the world of modern Cranes, there's no such thing as redundancy. The rating on the crane is the *maximum* it can handle without breaking. It's not a "suggestion" anymore. These days, the proper SOP for moving a 10 ton hot-tub over a house is to bring a 90 tonner, because a 90 ton crane will only pick up 90 tons under *ideal* situations (and ideal situations don't exist). Trying to use a modern 10 ton (or even 15-30 ton) crane for a 10 ton hot-tub would only lead to a disaster.
