    Ive ran a few bobcats and trail blazers, pretty sure this bug 40 is the smoothest one of them

    Still lots to do on it to get it in service. Fugure out auto idle make some generator covers replace rubber splash some color and then make money with it.

    Ill also be in search of a quiter exhaust then this glasspack and straight pipe that was on it. I fabbed the oictured exhaust. It did make it quiter but it still talks. I do most my welding with the general public roaming around my rig.

    There are no problems. There are only solutions. It's your duty to determine the right one.

    Hey now, OSHA did not certify that lifting procedure, the chains, the pulley or the winch cable.

    Do you have the environmental study to prove you wouldn't harm that tree?

    Also, I don't see a hardhat
