    ex60 electrics

    done some "digging" there is no power getting to the fusebox - if I put power there, everything works. Without it, no gauges, nor heater etc. Any other suggestions welcome! I am tempted to run a power wire straight from the isolating solenoid to the fusebox. Will this mess it up badly? thank you

    Hydraulic pressure based load weight monitor.

    Im not "dissing" your method, but a pressure guge tee'd into the lift cylinder is easier andgives the same result? the upside of your method is you can have the readout anywhere as opposed to having to run a hose to a gauge. For someone like me, id lose interest at programming the PLC!

    Burnt tractor parts

    how come? the oil is just another source of fuel. Oil quenching is different - it is utiliing the specific heat capacity of the oil to achieve a set cooling rate, rather than the chemical properties of the oil itself

    So what happened

    so if the tractor engine cannot produce much power at low rpm, then it will have to run faster to power the machine. At the end of the day, Power = force x velocity. So to shift a machine at 60km/hr will use a specific amount of power. Whatever engine speed this power is generated at, the...

    So what happened

    of course low rpms can burn lots of fuel. Take it to the extreme and look at ship engines. They are thousands of hp and run at less than 100 rpm.

    Forage wagon - I don't believe the hype

    Health and safety

    working "red zone" is relatively common and indeed alomost necessary at times so you can see the effect of your work as a train passess past. Ive done it quite a bit in the past. As above, we dont know the facts, other than two poor fellas have not made it home tonight to their families.
