Re: Gamma Goat

Compare the two photos that follow. Which Gama Goat is being used for 'training' and which Gama Goat is actually being delivered to the next user, intact. Sheesh! Properly rigging your vehicle for towing, trailering or airlifting IS important. No doubt about it. a-marine-corps-ch-53d-sea-stallion-he...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Life is a crapshoot. As my father was fond of saying, "You roll them bones and take your chances." I'll tell you what. I've put all this insanity in the rear view mirror. People are behaving like nuts lately and I'm not their therapist. All I can do is live my life and try to set a good example and ...

Oh yeah! Close to home. That was absolutely meant to be! Doesn't get any sweeter than that.

Re: Gamma Goat

A common recommendation for a replacing a shear pin is a 'shear bolt' which, if I had one, might have been a better option than tape...but, I had a shear pin and the book says tape, so I use tape. Why not? It's not like that PTO is spinning like mad...because it isn't. :D To the matter of grade, gra...

Re: Gamma Goat

Personally, I'd be considering felling that trunk and allowing it to take the upper bit with it. Is that an option?

Re: Gamma Goat

And you're saying it's better up there?...or worse? We don't allow that sort of thing in Texas. :lol:

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Took a day off today. Staying away from the Gama Goat for a bit just to catch my breath. The heat is on and I've done enough for a little while. Since I am also Chief Cook & Bottle Washer around here I'm getting caught up on housework and errands.. And look what I found at Walmart. Enjoy! IMG_3044.j...

Re: Gamma Goat

The power take off is pretty normal in all respects. Its output shaft is fair in size; and is just a simple round slug of metal with a hole through it for a shear pin. There are no splines. How do I know? I've never actually had a view of that end of one. I've only seen a digital rendering of it on ...

Re: Gamma Goat

Texas is GREAT Goat country! Presently, I know of only two prior Goat owners in my area and those guys had them many years ago. Now those Goats are long gone and their owners, almost so. I'm keeping a little PM-ing going on with 12Bravo and we were discussing the matter of my reconnecting the winch ...
