    Chipper loses prime after shut down

    It ended up being a bad lift pump. New one is in and she's running.

    By chance do you know what the pressure should be?

    Chipper loses prime after shut down

    I have an 05 Bandit 254 with a Cat/Perkins 1104C motor As of recently when the chipper is shut down, especially at the end of the day, it will not start back up after it sits. It has got progressively worse. It started after sitting for a period of time (over night) not its everytime its shut...

    Thanks Tom. It's working just glow plugs arent cycling and tach isnt working. Could be worse I guess.

    Bandit issues

    So, I finally have my chipper back! It was a bad injection pump and chipper side computer/wire harness (not sure the proper term). Now my issue is I have a new LOR PDC-X that I cannot get to work properly I have power, it reads battery voltage, does not read rpms. I just stays at zero during...

    Morning, evening or luchtime workout

    Glad I ran into this post! Yoga at night, after everyone is settled was one of the best things I started doing. I would like to incorporate a workout throughout the week. I can feel the older I get (35) my body just isnt the same after work.

    One ton opinions

    I run both a 05 and 04 350 and 550 respectively. Both have the 6.0 both have been great trucks tow all day, haul chips and chipper no problem. All the stories I have heard about the 6.0 being terrible are usually involve a chip or some sort of mod to gain HP. Maybe I just got lucky, who knows?

    Solidur Pants

    I bought a pair of the Solidur comfy pants to try out. So far so good. They are a lot heavier than other pants, winter only here in NH. They have held up good so far. I wish they had a back pocket, that's my only complaint. They upper thigh material seemed like it might pill but it hasnt...

    Bandit issues

    Hey Trevor, I appreciate the reply. I will keep your number on hand for the future. I ended up taking it to a diesel shop because I was getting no where. They plugged into and the chipper wasn't talking to their computer (that ended up being a bad wire harness to ECM i guess) once plugged in...

    Bandit issues

    Top light is for alternator not working properly bottom light is for glow plugs. I have eliminated the safety disconnect on top of hood for disk, the fuel system is working properly. The only thing I cannot figure out is the murphy switch. I have used the push button style but not an electric...

    Bandit issues

    Thanks for all the replies! I had it plugged in the overnight, two night ago before I started digging into yesterday. Motor was warm in the morning. I had my truck hooked up to my battery to make sure cranking power stayed up there while working on the chipper. How my chipper is set up is...

    I believe it does TreeCo. There is a red light below the ignition that lights up when i put the key to accessory. Goes off after a couple seconds then I crank the motor. I have always thought it was for glow plugs.

    Bandit issues

    Thanks for the reply. I've checked that, cleaned it and put some dielectric grease on it. Checked to make sure I had power to back of ignition. Everything seems in order. I'm not looking to bypass any safety switches.

    Bandit issues

    I have a bandit 254 with a perkins. I cannot get it to start. I had a similar problem last year (there's a post about it). I have made sure pressure is good to injectors, fuel to injectors, changed filter, changed all fuses, have pick up truck hooked to battery to make sure there is enough...

    Scheduling work

    So, I "fired" my first customer yesterday. I had mixed emotions about it. In the end it was the right thing to do. This particular customer has been such a thorn since November.

    Edelrid Talons

    I have been climbing on the Talons since Oct. They are by far the most comfortable set of spikes I've used. Upon receiving them the only flaw I could think of was the plastic getting brittle in the cold (NH). Well, Monday that fear came true. Snapped right at the bolts. I have contacted...

    Scheduling work

    The watching doesnt bother me. If it's at a distance. If someone asked to schedule a specific date that was far out past my workload already, I would probably accommodate that knowing I will fill in the gap before then. Just something I have been bothered by this season and want to implement...

    Scheduling work

    Thanks for the replies. I don't think it's anything I am doing, besides being nice. Sometimes I think being too nice is a downfall. I can kind of understand if we are doing a crane job, or a bigger removal(s). But these little half day jobs, or pruning jobs I just don't get it. It's really...

    Scheduling work

    I am just small time, just me and one other person usually. As of lately (this season) I have been getting a lot of customers who want to be there when the work is performed. I dont mind this at all, however it makes scheduling tricky working with their schedule, especially when they cancel or...
