    NO NO !!!. The Big Swede is Mats Sundin the former NHL player in Quebec, Toronto and Vancouver but start in Nacka HK and Djurgåden IF in Sweden. Why is it so common in USA to delete an important letter in your family name, Larsson with one s make no sense, what i know there is no man in Swedish history with a christian name of "Lar" it can only be Lars who has a son and then becoms Larsson, perhaps a misspelling or a miss in the application to becom a US citizen?, i know that question is of less importance and significance in today's time constrained world but i'm still curious about the answer. And no you are no Swedes after so long time in USA, you are Americans with Swedish culture roots and at some point in your family history life cycle you become Americans and i hope you are proud of both. Have you heard of the Swedish book author Vilhelm Moberg, he wrote three books on subject of the first emigrants from Swedish part of Småland who was among the first to start the groundbreaking for farmers in the state of Minnesota in 1850's, good books, but you farmers may not have time for that?, i've heard for 30 years a go of so-called experts that the machines and the computer would relieve the human from many unnecessary work steps and moments but when i see your videos on the tube i know that someone was wrong or lied about it, or they just did not know how sick industrially agriculture was to become in the future. With friendly greetings from a real Swede and Larsson from Stockholm County.

    Elevator head pulley set up is a lot like I've worked on. Just much lighter duty. We were lifting sand and soda ash etc. Raw materials for making glass. That one piece of metal is for bracing the fan motor mounting holes. And if you put a 90° elbow facing down you may have fewer issues with the fan motors. Even wash down duty motors aren't as good as they were years ago.

    Just a tip to save some fuel doing your RTK stuff. We built a bracket to mount the globe on top of a side x side, and John Deere has a cable so you can plug it and the monitor into the 12V plug on the side x side.

    Had a BBQ with family a crew one evening and right above the grill a racoon fell out of a tree right onto the grill and grabbed a steak and ran off. I can't see how it didn't burn itself but it was gone. All of a sudden nobody was hungry. That week i sawed that tree down and ordered a covered BBQ Housing. Everyone is still scarred from that night, i still laugh with tears running down my face. It sounded like Chris farley entering a room lol. RIP Chris.
