    Autofeed issues

    I have a woodsman 15x and have recently replaced the autofeed computer with a LOR PDX-X. We had to wire it all up and I can't figure out why that when we start up the chipper and it is at idle the feed wheels turn. There should be a signal sent to the valve telling it to stop. anyone know?

    Knuckle bearing on an Altec LRV

    I have to have the knuckle bearing replaced. The book is from 2001. I got a quote for 16k to do the job and test the boom. I need to know if this is out of whack with what I should be paying.

    Plywood/mats on a hill

    The ground is super saturated right now and will be for a while. I gotta get down a slight decline for a few jobs and while it will be easy getting down there, getting out may be more of a chore since the truck will be loaded. If I put mats or plywood down I risk kicking them out of the friction...

    Camp turbo foot ascender won’t stay put

    The strap for the bottom of my foot won’t stop creeping. Anyone else have this issue? I like the action on it but the strap is a non-starter.

    Throttle cable setting on Carlton 4012

    I replaced the throttle cable on my kubota diesel and the new one, which I bought from the dealer, opens up the throttle a little bit more.

    Leaky altec cylinder

    The lift cylinder for the upper boom on my altec lrv is weeping. I called altec twice and have yet to hear from the service guy going on 6 days. I’m nervous about using it being what could happen if the seal blows out. I’ve basically put it out of service. Should I look at driving it hours to...

    Auto feed issues in my Woodsman 15x

    I have the autofeed set at 2200 rpm but it doesn’t kick in until way late. Like around 1200. I watched the digital tach when it was fed and it doesn’t drop below 2400. I don’t know if the magnetic pickup is wonky or what.
