I am on a page that is titled power king & economy brochures & misc. I found this page by accident yesterday and down loaded on it. Its awsome. One problem--- after i printed out some (3 ?) it said i was done.  FINE--So I went to my copies that I down loaded and sorted them into 3 groups. I go back to the site today knowing I can only down load 3 ??????? and started comparing what i printed to what was left. They do not look the same so i opened them up(3) to see if I already printed them and it shut me out just for looking. I do not understand why I am limited to only 3 down loads. I am new to G talk. I have an economy tractor 1957 and am looking for all info pertaining to it. It sure seems GOOFY that you put a limit on dow loading at this site. As i said it is an awsome site. You will need to explain this to me if you will. Butch

It is set up that way to discourage those who are looking to download manuals to re-sell. EBay is full of manuals downloaded from this site, printed out and being sold for a profit. This site is for the betterment of the hobby, not to line someone's pockets.

The limit on downloads is removed once you have over a certain amount of posts.

As the people above have said the number you can download increases after you have contributed more post to the forum. One popular and appreciated way of accomplishing this is to post pictures of your machine. many here say "No pictures you don't own it". Also many will post a short history of their machine like a description of how it was acquired, condition when acquired, what has been done to and with it. Welcome and enjoy the forum.  Don
