Did he have any barn siding left? Or was he sold out?

I bet that Case wouldn't pull my trailer with the load I had on there today. Send that thing over here and I'll let you know how it does.

Cat,
The more I do with these tractors the more impressed I become, to bad the owner can't get their PR act together

Ryan, I think the pellets might weigh more than whats left of the car, besides I could've gotten the 446 out if I needed a real tractor :D

Moose, just a cheap Englander stove, does just as good as a job as the big buck ones if you ask me.
I do hvac for a living so I have it tricked out :bigrofl:


"tricked out"? Flame paint job? Does it make coffee? I'm sitting here visualizing all sorts of cool looking add ons that an HVAC guy might put on his own machine. :rocker2:

I have a wood/coal Ashley stove, the style with a sheet metal enclosure and provisions for a blower on the back.

Years ago I added a blower, then a control system consisting of a thermocouple, temperature controller, and time delay relay within an enclosure - all stuff that was going to be thrown away at work with the exception of the relay which I found in the dump.

Works well - when the stove heats up the blower comes on and if you bank it down for the evening the blower shuts off so it saves electricity and doesn't blow cool air.

There are also a couple of fans in a register above the stove, to blow warm air upstairs. They also run off the same outlet that powers the blower.

I regularly move 1 CY loads of dirt or gravel on my 5x8 trailer but this is probably the heaviest load ever, a full pallet of wet St. Augistine sod.

Mine? Here is one of them, on my trailer. This one is being held in reserve for when the one we're using now finally gets beyond repair. This is our third of the same model number. 

(I really like them, if you hadn't noticed.)  flower_ani.gif

Not sure if I have one of it in the house or not.

Oh, sorry, you must be talking about John's stove. Mine is a conventional wood/coal unit.

I was going to mention that is a lot of weight! Good thing you had enough weight resting on the Case to keep traction. My cousin and I take is 1 ton Ram and large trailer every year and load up 11,000 lbs of Pellets and bring them home. So I know how much weight that is. It wouldn't surprise me if it were more. Nice going!

You might be right about the weight as I'm only guessing.

Funny, was unloading it and found out the ball on the tractor is to small to hold trailer, stepped onto trailer and it lifted up,

fat guys can move pretty quick when needed :bigrofl:

I decided to see if the Case 224 was up to moving a ton of pellets, to make my life easier, it did!
 

 

 

Funny, was unloading it yesterday and found out the ball on the tractor is to small to hold trailer, stepped onto trailer and it lifted up,

 

It took you until now to unload that?

Hey John, I thought of you the other day while moving a piano loaded on a trailer through my icy yard. These Case machines sure are great, especially with some loaded tires and chains to offset my skinny butt....

 

Trailer, 570#, extra crap on it ( come-alongs, log chains, wood planks , maybe 100# ) Piano,,,,,, ummmm dunno, but heavy enough to need 4 guys to shove it around on a cart. The 448's tires hardly slipped, even on some glazed ice on the path around and over some compacted snowbanks and around to the deck where we loaded the piano into the house.

 

Always some sorta fun with a CASE :-)
