I watch every one of his videos. I find them oddly addictive and entertaining. Then again I can sit and watch heavy equipment work all day and not get bored with it.
Amazing what one can learn from another's learning curve. We keep a Dresser 250, 62000lb dozer, lumbering along on our big boys' playground.So far this week, I have learned how to repair oh craps on heavy machinery.
Repairing a D-9 Dozer idler shaft by adding metal to the shaft holder and line boring it back to hold the bushings. Using brass threaded bolts screwed into the threads to keep from filling the threaded holes is probably an old trick but genius to me.
