    You might want to consider not bothering with the wing nut ...





    I said MIGHT CONSIDER. Donít blame me if you butcher up your clamp and donít like it.

    It is a bit of a pain... I was thinking of shortening them up for the table, but then if I want to use them around the press or somewhere else they'd be short...

    I had three of 'em around the DP and I don't think I EVER used them. Way quicker using a regular welding C clamp.

    Might work well if you were using a jig for "production" drilling though.

    I bet you you'll be using them a lot more on the weld table.

    Those and the long C clamps were pretty much gathering dust until I built the table.

    One of my earlier farm welding projects was welding hooks on top of the loader bucket. You can see two of them here. There's a loop in the middle, you can't see it. You wouldn't believe what I carried around on those hooks with Grade 80 chain, everything from tree trunks to dead cows. They multiplied the usefulness of that tractor by X1,000. Don't have the farm (or the tractor, or the cows) any more.

    We bought a Mahindra in 2013 and love it. We like it better than any tractor we have ever had.( Deere, Case, Ford)
    The parts are made in India, but are shipped to and the tractor built in Texas.

    I love that idea of hooks on the back of the bucket. Makes me think of the numbers of times we've wrapped chain around the loader arm.
    These days we have a Manitou with a hydraulic attachment quick hitch, and it has two hooks by design, so we don't really use the old loader tractor any more.

    You joke about udder balm... we use Udder Mint, 30% pure peppermint oil IIRC, now that's some powerful stuff! Useful for a multitude of issues, from sore backs, to more "tender" issues... I kid you not, it's way more powerful than any creams rated for human use. The quantity of peppermint in it acts as a local anasthetic, as well as soothing and promoting skin healing.

    Here we go... combining farming tools and engineering tools It's amazing how manueverable a 4 wheel steer telehandler is.

    I loved that Mahindra, it was tough as a tank. It was built very basic, with NONE of this fancy computerized whizzamajig technology. You've probably read the recent stories about Deere owners complaining that they can't do field repairs on their Deeres because they're too high-tech. The dealer has to come out and fix it, while your crops sit. Mahindra IS, by the way, the largest selling tractor in the world.

    The loader on that model (4025) would lift up to about 2900 lbs. The loader on comparable models from Deere, Kubota, et. al. would only pick up 800-1200 lbs. Basically, if it would fit in the bucket, you could pick it up. I hauled tons and tons and tons of rock in it. Only problem I had with it was a fuel line started leaking, easy to replace. It was a great machine, I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. Kubota a close second.
