I do not sell any brands so there wou...

Re: Athey Mobils demise :(

I like your reasoning there Tom. I don't expect the Mobils to just fade away just yet as there are several places still making parts for them. As long as there are parts that one can't make them self I feel they will be around for another decade or two. I know I have 2 of them with 1 in very fine sh...

Re: Tennant 6200

Do you have a wiring diagram? Fallow the leads from the seat switch. 1 of them will go to a relay. Check the relay. First does it make a sound (click) when the seat switch is activated. if so then make sure contacts on the secondary side are making contact when seat switch is activated. At least tha...

I have seen them used ion ranches in eastern Montana for cattle back scratchers. Most were stood on end and dropped over a fence post of sorts.

Re: Parking on Street Cleaning Day

Not sure about Calif. but in our city if the sign says no parking it means no parking. Even if the job is done here they still tow them until the sign is removed or out dated. One never knows if the sweeper just went to dump and will be returning to touch up the area or not.

Re: Tennant 6080

Anyone Know what kind of switch this machine has that can help? Not knowing the machine and just guessing I would say replace the switch. Most equipment switches are conman and NAPA or any good parts store should carry them. Remove the switch take a picture of the wiring on the back so you can have ...

Re: Elgin Geo-Vac

alan5252, our city had some of the same problems. The only way they were able to solve it was to sell it. I know this does not help but it was there solution. The mechanic that worked on it hated it for that reason. The only help he got from Elgin was they would through parts at it until it was out ...

Re: Here's some pix of our skid-spacer setups on our drag sh

I like what I see there Tom. I just got a new to me M-9 without these rubbers and looks like it would be worth a try. About how many hours do you get before you have to adjust them? How thick is the material you are using? My elevator seem to be working great but there are a few small holes in the h...
