    Back about 20 years ago I sold my 1995 F150 locally - first time doing that. It was the 6 cylinder 5 speed with only 77k miles at 10 years old. The truck was in beautiful shape.

    A local guy from town came with his son - was to be his first vehicle that he’d been saving for. The dad took it for a drive. I told him I had it since new. Offered to have him take it to any local mechanic he wanted to have it checked out if he wanted.

    3 months after they bought it I got the nastiest email ever. All about how I ripped his son off since the truck now needed a new clutch.

    Huh? The kid had never driven anything let alone a standard. He managed to burn the clutch up in those 3 months and it was my fault?

    Never again. I’ll take the hit and trade in from then on - I just can’t deal with people.

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    The cost issue is even more of a concern when you add the cost of the unit needed for each PTO driven implement, which is the larger share of the cost. Each implement adds about $250 to outfit it with the coupling on the implements PTO shaft. First thought I had was are you going to need to shorten each PTO shaft this device is used on because of the added length?

    We have at least one GTT member who is disabled and I believe he has only one functioning arm / hand. No question its a helpful addition for someone who has challenges connecting and disconnecting the PTO shaft for such reasons. Also, it is a slick piece from a connection standpoint. I was a little surprised how easily it disconnects as just a little pressure on the release lever and it comes right apart. Being up under the PTO shroud, I doubt something could accidentally push the release lever, but their goal was to make it easy to connect and no question, it is very easy to connect and disconnect.

    I will say, its a very well made piece and also very heavy duty, so it should last forever. I was surprised when I disconnected it on the display. It's heavy as a solid cast piece would be. I can see why they have a cable on it or otherwise people would probably drop it on their foot, not to mention have it disappear out the door........



    The dealer has a display right at the parts counter where I was waiting for my new battery. Good thing I checked the box when the battery came out as the parts guy had pulled the wrong battery at first. He tried to tell me the replacement battery had the round filler caps for adding the battery acid and frankly, looked like the batteries did 40 years ago. I insisted he must have pulled the wrong part and sure enough, I was correct. He had transposed part numbers which is dangerous when you are in the parts "bidness".

    The new battery was $99, which I found pleasantly surprising. I asked him if he was charging me the right price since he had pulled the wrong battery and I don't think he appreciated my "humor". He said "I can charge you more if you want" to which I replied "I think you usually do".

    I noticed on the Green Parts website, the price they showed was $154........It does weigh about 40 pounds so the difference could partially be shipping.

    By the way, I stopped at Batteries Plus and they had a Duracell Battery which was only 450CCA and $138. So the battery from my dealer ended up being the best deal when compared to the 22NF batteries at Advance Auto, O'Reilly, Autozone and Batteries Plus. They were all in the same price range as the Batteries Plus battery, plus or minus $10......

    A friend of mine's on again, off again live in would burn out the clutch on her car because the dummy rode the clutch pedal.

    Since we keep vehicles till the wheels fall off and have little trade in value; we just call the local charity (usually Salvation Army) and donate the vehicle and write it off on our taxes. No muss, no fuss, no pain in the butt people to deal with.
