    Been so slow, it has taken a year and a half to get there. Still have another six months of warranty. Just had an actuator replaced under warranty. Tracks still have decent life left in them. Too broke to get anything else for awhile...

    314.2, I just tensioned the tracks again since hitting 100 hours, now I know what the "popping" noise sounds like when they need adjusting when using my hopper while turning.

    Ron that popping noise :confused: is the sound just before the lugs flys off:).

    Never fear tho that's where Larry's bolt on lugs comes in to save the day:cool2:.

    Quit overloading your hopper,save yourself some repairs.By the way how rusted was your adjuster,how much wrench blaster did you use, and what size pipe wrench did you use.You need to invest in Larry's grease adjuster:dancing:

    Good luck and keep Larry's website bookmarked!!!!!!:usflag:

    The hopper is what did it, imagine flying down the road with the loaded hopper at 7 mp/h and making a slow, but sharp right turn on the road, that noise scared the sh*t out of me, I thought it was the torsion axles breaking, I won't do that again.
    My adjuster was fine, when I did my first adjustment (50 hours) I turned the adjuster out by an extra inch and wiped some grease on the threads and set it back to factory settings, so no rust was in there, I thought ahead. As for the wrench, I bought a nice 2" crescent earlier this Spring that I use on the big excavators for large fittings, 10 minutes and I was done.
