    Thought Id post a link to my little side project I buildt last year. I just split the differential in half using it to push a truck through my backyard. Figures we would get 4 inches of snow the next day. Working on fixing it and installing a muffler, tired of wearing earmuffs evertime I go out.

    I hate you SOOOO much right now! I LOVE diesels and that thing is so cool!!

    Can you put a regular Cherry Bomb muffler on it? You can get those anywhere.

    Have you tried aiming a hair dryer or heat gun into the intake on those cold starts?

    Really cool, man. Thanks for letting us see that. I would spend so much money for that thing if I could find one.

    those yanmar engines are awesome, i have an 8hp on my generator and looked into a 10hp for my topsoil screener, but they want over 2k for a new one!!! i went with the 13 hp honda gasser instead. not nearly as cool though!

    very cool project!
