    sk750

    I've had my SK750 for five years and have about 1,200 hours on it. It has been mostly trouble free. I've just had to replace wheel bearings, tracks just last year, and drive sprockets which should be done with new tracks. I'm pretty confident I can get another five years or more out of this...

    CMC lift failure

    Sean thanks for sharing this. Kyle has the 62' CMC. I'll tell him about the failure of the 83'. We should find out if the design is at all similar.

    Bandit 15xp running rough....

    I drove up to the dealership on Monday morning. They figured out that the distributor was bad. The mechanic showed me the old one and explained that the rotor is press on to the top of the shaft and plastic groves hold it in place, which had worn because of the vibration. The new Carquest...

    Bandit 15xp running rough....

    I'm sorry to report that replacing those parts did not solve the problem. When we idled the chipper up on Thursday it started misfiring again. I'm hauling it up to the dealership tomorrow. I left the job with a 1/4 load of chips and a pile of brush in the truck :(

    Napa had the right cap and rotor. We replaced those and the spark plugs. The engine sounds good now. Fingers crossed for chipping tomorrow. The buzz archive on this was very helpful.

    Thanks Sven. I’ll check it out. I’m off to Napa to get new plugs. I’ll see if they have a cap and rotor that fit.

    Bandit 15xp running rough....

    A week ago we noticed some small backfire noises while the chipper was at high idle. I added dry gas and changed the fuel filter but it hasn't improved the situation. It's a 2019 with a 5.7L GM gas engine. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm going to post a video so you can hear what it was...

    It is! The river bank is lined with oaks, and Kyle says if we want to do any pruning along the way it will be appreciated! It’s a quiet neighborhood so parking along the street is fine.

    Southern Maine Rec Climb

    So, we have our eye on Saturday February 13th in Topsham, ME. The date depends on decent weather of course, so we'll postpone if it's looking snowy or super cold. The site I'm considering is a backyard along the river, with lots of big red oak trees. Could that date work for any of you folks...

    Bandit 15xp starter making a grinding sound

    I talked with the Bandit dealership where I bought it and they said yes the starter is covered but only if they do the work. They’re a 2.5 hour round trip away so I’m just going to buy the new starter to have on hand in case it really does go bad at some point. $190 is better than down time.

    Moss, I will see who I can recruit for a climbing day here and hopefully you can come up. I’d be interested in taking part in a climb in MA as well.

    Bandit 15xp starter making a grinding sound

    Yes, my partner is a little more mechanically savvy than me, and he convinced me to take the starter off its mount. We blew it out with the air compressor and lubricated everything with silicone spray. Put it back in and it's been starting the chipper like a champ. I think that road grit was...
