the Kubota you have you said has 9700 miles on it. well times avg speed limit of 60 miles a hour. that gives you 582,000 Miles that it has on it.

@David Null as for office workers. it really depends if they are working 6 and half work days as normal work year for around 2,000 hours. I mean i would say most office workers work around 8 to 9 hour work days min of 6 days a week. thats 2,496 hours to 2,808 hours per year.

In machines like excavators, skidsteers, etc. The meter is the number of hours that machine has been run, a normal work year for an office worker is around 2,000 hours.

I love watching and realizing... "hey, I've done something very similar..."... and then... "man, how did i know it wasn't going to be done when it was done?"... and then... "awww... what a pro!!" If it needs to be done, you can count on Andrew to do it right. Back in the day, I was compulsive about washing the implements down after plowing or discing or mowing, and my dad never said anything, but I could tell he thought I was being a bit overly fastidious. But I never had a plow, disc, or shredder rust out on me.

This is what happens when you don’t take care of your machines. Even though it has lower hours on it, it can still become a POS if you don’t keep up on maintenance and cleaning.

@ksfraz I live in Canada and we don’t run into problems with that. The salt should be used for ice only not snow and only laid after the plowing is done. Still our road salting trucks all get pressure washed in the shop at the end of the shift and left to dry and the equipment ends up lasting.

It's been in the salt/used for snow removal, very common in the northeast.

I have been going back into Andrews older videos & Liking ones that I missed Liking in the past. Andrew does not toot his own horn enough. He should at least flash a four-second PLEASE LIKE messages on his new videos screens, somewhere.

Just a word of advice, when moving high pressure gas bottle(s) it's good practice to remove the regulator(s) and put the cap(s) on the bottle(s) until it's stationary and ready to work. Kind regards, Al.

@R.j. Brown If Andrew was only wheeling his welding rig to the Bobcat I wouldn't have said anything. But it was seeing him wrestling it out of the forklift and almost hit the regulator on the frame that made me comment.

To make it a bit easier on you next time, lift the bobcat and take the skid plates off it will get you easier access to the hydraulic pump housing and using white lithium grease on the geared track drivers and end of Hose lines before you go out into snow and it will help act like a barrier from the snow melting and the salt I hope the information helped
CRC 5037 White Lithium Grease its 4.75 a can on Amazon

What do you think about the new Bobcat track loaders like the T76?
How much did the drive Motor cost? What would the dealer probably charged for that job?
Would love to see a video comparing track loaders/skid steers if you ever get inclination.
You think a compact excavator (Like a E35) and track loader could clear trees and make couple thousand feet of driveway for off grid mountain homestead, or would I need to rent a bull dozer?

Don't want to sound like an idiot but with that last bolt that you were trying to get out. Couldn't you have used a drill and drilled a new hole through the old bolt with a metal drill bit? Just a thought :)

Never weld on oil. Instead, consider building a circular enclosure around the perimeter of the thinning /leak area and then build an igloo over top of it, without hitting the thin area. A steel cap would work too. Thank you for the awesome videos, I admire the hell out of your ambition.
