Diagnosis of the 1961 60kva Kamper Generator (plus full throttle run)
Aussie50


Published on Oct 18, 2018
Unfortunately its more than a bad set of brushes, its a burnt winding all because somebody got lazy and did not share the single phase load across all 3 phases, instead they overloaded one and it burnt. Fuses should have protected it, but I would bet they were upgraded to the point they were useless.
The question is, can I lift the brushes on the bad winding and use 2 phases to neutral (ground) and still get some use out of it without having it rewound just yet.
The alternator looks to be made by Siemens, but it just does not have any stamps on it to prove it, I have no idea who made it.

Blower Wars 3.0! Testing The New STIHL BR800 & ECHO PB-8010 Backpack Blowers
Brian's Lawn Maintenance


Published on Oct 21, 2018
Today we tested out the brand new STIHL BR 800 backpack blower vs the ECHO PB 8010 and Redmax 8500! A lot of you guys were wanting to see all 3 in action, so we grabbed the leaf blowers and went out and had some fun testing them all out.

Most of you guys have seen the new STIHL BR 800C blower and ECHO PB 8010, but how do they compare against each other? When you look at the stats, they all seem to be pretty close, but how do they perform in the field, with real testing.

Stats are one thing, but looking at how they blow leaves is a whole different story. The big thing I took away from this test was the CFM or volume of air the new ECHO is moving. It was just insane. But STIHL answered with the side start technology, which I also think is a game changer.

That being said, Redmax's 8500 has been the most staple blower in my fleet since the beginning of our business. I feel it is the most balanced blower when it comes to power and performance. But all things being equal, I feel like that gap has closed. Now it's a brand choice, not so much a performance choice.

What do you guys think about the new STIHL BR800C blower? How about the ECHO PB-8010? Which one are you guys excited about demoing this fall and next spring, and upgrading to for 2019? Leave us a comment down below, love to hear your guys thoughts.

The Exmark STARIS Stand On Mower ► First Look At The 2018 GIE!! + Outside Demo!
Brian's Lawn Maintenance


Published on Oct 23, 2018
One of the big splashes at the GIE 2018 this year was the new Exmark Staris Stand On lawn mower. I was so pumped to see the Vantage replacement and take a demo on the new mower outdoors, and see first hand what it looked like.

I know a lot of you guys thought pretty much the same when I first saw this thing debut on social media and Instagram. I was a little taken back because honestly it looked like it came from the spare parts bin at Exmark. But I will say this, the over all consensus I heard after everyone was trying it at the show was it seemed like a pretty cool unit.

I know we still need to get out there and mow with it, but I am feeling pretty confident in the Vantage replacement. The Staris will come in an E and and S configuration in 2019, and supposedly an X-Series in 2020.

I am pumped to get a demo and do a full debrief and walk around. Hoping to get our hands on one this fall so we can report back in to you guys how it did!

What do you guys think about the new Exmark Staris stand on lawn mower? Did you get a chance to demo it at the outdoor booth at GIE? Leave me a comment down below!

Brian's Lawn Maintenance


Published on Nov 3, 2018
I know a lot of you guys were at the GIE 2018 checking out the latest and greatest equipment, but for the rest of us that didn't get to go, I wanted to bring the show back to you!

There were a lot of new items this year including new stand on lawn mowers, new work shoes and clothing, new zero turn lawn mowers, and much more. A lot of you guys also got to see sneak peaks from Wyatt and the Ramp Rack, and also Nick with Mulch Mate.

It's almost impossible to cover everything at a show this size, especially when you're trying to network and meet everyone as well. These were a compilation of clips I was able to grab showcasing all the new products from each of these companies.

I know you guys have been anxiously awaiting the release of a lot of this equipment, and GIE is a great place to see the first peak at all of it. Most of the equipment shown here will be available in early spring 2019, and in to summer 2019.

What was the newest or coolest thing that interested you most at GIE 2018? Anything in particular that you guys saw that interested you where you will be investing in and making upgrades? Let me know and leave us a comment down below!

4 Way BATTERY Chainsaw Comparison ► Which Has The Better Cut And Torque?
Brian's Lawn Maintenance


Published on Nov 10, 2018
Today Brandon and I are doing a 4 way BATTERY chainsaw comparison video for you guys. We wanted to put all 4 to the test and see which battery powered chainsaw had the most power and the most torque.

We've been using most of these chainsaws all summer now, and have a pretty good handle on how they perform. But we wanted to include all 4 in a video together and try to highlight the big differences with the different saws.

As you can pick up from the video, the STIHL clearly had more torque and speed then any other saw we tested. However, the Milwaukee M18 FUEL chainsaw took out the largest amount of material with it's chain, so each one was pretty unique.

All the chainsaws in this video had dealer sharpened fresh chains and brand new fully charged batteries. We did our best to use them in a real world example while elevating some Spruce trees on a job Brandon had.

Overall, I don't think you can really go wrong with any of the battery chainsaws. I think the STIHL took the cake in this example, with the Milwaukee a close second. The fact of the matter is, as much as of a gas powered equipment guy as I am, I do feel the battery chainsaws bring a lot to the table.

The battery units are extremely quiet, they always "start", have incredible amounts of torque, and very rarely break down. There aren't too many battery powered pieces of equipment I'd recommend, but chainsaws would in fact make that list. They just make sense when doing small prune jobs and to have around the garage.

What do you guys think about the different chainsaws out today? Do you guys own any one of these particular units? Let me know with a comment down below!

How To Winterize and Maintain The Battery on a Lawn Tractor or Riding Lawnmower, Video
Steve's Small Engine Saloon


Published on Nov 16, 2018
Battery care and preventive maintenance is essential when it comes to the off season and winter months, when your lawn tractor or ride on lawnmower will not be used for several months. Take precautions like I show you in this video and you will save some money when spring time comes around because you won't have to buy a new battery.

SNOW and LEAVES In The Same Week ► What Is Going On With The Weather?
Brian's Lawn Maintenance


Published on Nov 16, 2018
Today we setup the Exmark Ultravac system and also pulled out the BOSS snowplow from storage, all in the same day. It's crazy how 2 weeks ago it was 85 degrees and sunny, and now we have an inch of snow on the ground. Unreal.

Liz and I went on vacation for a little over a week, and when we came back, we were intending to crush leaf clean ups. Now it's a week later, and we have over an inch of snow on the ground already, and don't have any opportunity to clean up leaves.

I'm hoping the weather warms up a tad and were able to do some clean ups the week of Thanksgiving. While we had this downtime, we got the snow plow out from Mike's shop and hooked that up. It's funny because now we'll be zooming around town with both the plow and trailer setup. Michigan weather just cannot make up it's mind.

Have you guys got your leaf clean ups in and all completed, or are you guys struggling sort've like us up here in MI. It's crazy to see snow on the ground this early in the season. As frustrating as it is, there's nothing we can do about it! Ya just have to go with the flow this time of year.

Again, we get the opportunity to keep others in our sites - hearts & prayers that is - while heading into the Christmas season of 2018. Kind of hard to fathom what those that have lost everything from the fires in the West are dealing with on multiple levels, considering many escaped with only the clothes on their backs. Many others did not make it out.
Thinking the verbiage covered my mindset - was a little bit hard to get into appropriate words.

Did not notice too many miss ques on my part with the slammering, so God was smiling on me there.
Qualifier - As mentioned in one of the posts, only two flywheel options. Both the m-tronic and standard coil utilize the same flywheel after a review of the ipl.
Hope this day is finding that you are well.

Avoid This Snowblower!
donyboy73


Published on Feb 28, 2019
Recently I have been coming across some snowblowers with very poorly built transmissions. They would be great transmissions if only they would last as no major parts are exposed to moisture or snow.
Watch my video to see which ones to avoid!

Watch my video taking one of those transmissions apart here;

I purchased a Home Depot ching chong special last night for $192. I hope it lasts a couple of years. I tried to buy a used unit on Craig's List, but the weirdos all wanted 75% value for their beat up old machines. I believe I will buy a Craftsman 30" rider when they go on sale.

Looks like most of the consumer grade mowers are all made by a few chinky manufacturers. The carbs gum up from ethanol fuel and the plastic wheel hubs crack. I was using a borrowed Walmart 20" push, but salt air corrosion killed the coil. A new coil is $35 for what is now a $50 mower, not to mention I would need to drill and tap a hole where a bolt snapped off even after using penetrating fluid.
