    Closest guess would be a sickle bar, but I've never seen a 15' sickle bar (that wasn't in a grain table).

    Well, Google pulls up various mowers, so that must be what'chew are lookin' fer.

    It was both.

    I was practicing my multi-tasking.

    Plenty of HP for a big rotary mower and capable of being turned up some if it hasn't been already. I've only ever used the 12 speed power shift. I assume the 1175 is 8 speed via a high/low similar to the 930? You should post a good video when you get it running good.

    It’s an 8 speed with planetary rears.

    Not too many of these down south. Most got turned into pulling tractors and torn up.

    One of the long term projects are little closer to being done today.

    Been working on this F800 boom truck. Nearly all those hoses were dry rotten and split. Spent $1700 relacing dozens of hoses.

    But now it'll boom up, run the hoist and set on outriggers.

    All the cylinders need to be repacked. So no boom extensions at this point. But just using the fixed stage should be enough to help me fix the P&H crane. Which I then can use to pull the boom stages out of the Ford.

    Very much a Catch 22, Chicken/egg, junk crane problem.

    So in my ever losing battle to stop spending money, vought a new toolbox for the farm.

    Guy at work was selling this old Harbor Freight for $600.

    I wanted the $12,000 84" Snap On EPIC I saw on the truck last week. But the wallet said used Harbor Freight at best....

    I was just rummaging through Ebay, Craig's, and FB Marketplace today looking for an upgrade.
    I have an old (70's) Snap-On unit that I bought on Ebay 15 yrs ago, only to find that it wasn't nearly as nice'a shape as I thought.
    I have made doo with it thus far,and even asked the Snap-On dealer about new slides.
    He was eager at the time, but never got back to me, so I guess that's my answer there ...

    So - been looking, and either there is junk imports or $3000 and up Macsimizer type units out there.
    Really?
    I can't believe all the toolboxes for sale north of 5 digits out there!
    I just wasn't finding anything in the $800 - $1500 area at all hardly.
    Sumpthing resembling your old box.

    I have these around the shop - and have no use for a Macsimizer.
    Although - years ago I thought that I would have "made it" if I got to the point that I could cough up for a Macsimizer.
    It's like a blue silo - a status symbol.


    I'm sure that I will find sumpthing eventually if I keep looking, just that I was shocked how it seemed to be all or nothing today.

    There is a few Vidmar's coming up at auction this next week, so we'll see how those sell...

    Vidmar’s can be wild. I was at an auction that had 50+ vidmars or every shape and size, some were the huge multi box systems that probably cost as much as my house. The most expensive one went for about $300.

    Lately, and now that I could really use one or two, I haven’t seen a nice one for under $1000.

    I eventually formed the opinion that Kennedy roll around boxes were the best value. I’ve bought several for less than $500, and if you keep an eye out, you can get the really nice soft close drawer slides in one for far less than new. Plus their mobile.

    You have all this stuff in a shop that stands wide open day and night, you work a lot so you are not there. I guess you don't have meth heads out there stealing everything that is not bolted down.

    "Made it" isn't hard.

    Drawers are silly simple to make. So, too, a frame and cladding. Most any size yah could wish for. Reinforced for the REALLY heavy s**t, even.

    Ball-bearing slides are commodity items. "soft" latching included.

    More than one set can be applied to a single deep and reinforced drawer, vertically stacked.

    Disclosure: We did this s**t all the time in data center & telco equipment racks and cabinets, also had them custom fabbed.

    Cheaply out of Zuhai for use in adjacent CTI, Macau.

    Or at ten grand, US$ a 42U out of Switzerland for ready-to-Earthquake anchor light-alloy die castings and extrusions with lots of engineering & test "credentials" to keep paranoid insurers sweet.

    Tool storage is not as hard.

    But the usual applies:

    "Too many women. Too little time!"

    Errmmm....I meant "projects".

    I think?
