Here's the pics and video.

Sorry the video is in slow motion my Mom thought I was going to be going faster and make a big splash but it was so deep at one point if I did all of the electronic and myself would've been soaked. At one point in the video it was almost up to the TDCM. I'm definitely changing my hydro fluid and giving it a thorough greasing once the cleanup of this hurricane is over.

Some have them some don't. With all the trees and stuff they are generally more trouble than they're worth. Everyone who has had them on this road hates them and wants them gone.

Idk the intake is already at the top of the tractor and it is a diesel so I aside from all the safety switch crap and the PTO clutch and glow plugs it'll be fine if I sunk it that deep. Just change the fluids once your done.

The frame rails are about the limit for me any deeper and your into the glow plug relay, voltage regulator, and the TDCM. Now if I wanted to water proof it further I would box up the TDCM and glow plug relay in tupperware containers and seal them off. And then for the TDCM I'll just run a 40amp alternator that has the built in VR.

Gutters on my house are so full of failing shingle material,they look like someone filled them to the top with black beauty sandblasting sand or coal slag..
A few days ago some torrential rains from the remnants of Florence was expected here,so I figured I should at least try cleaning the gutters on the front side of the house,which is the side with the failing shingles--I rigged up a crude pipe attachment to my 16 gallon shop vac,I used some of that black plastic hose used on well pumps and pools I had hanging around--and I made a "J" hook from part of a pool ladder that was in my scrap pile--now I could vacuum the gutter clean from the ground,at least on the front of the house..

There was weeds and small trees growing in places in the gutters--I doubt they were EVER cleaned once since the house was built in 1977--perhaps once in the 1990's maybe..

I vacuumed the downspouts first,then did the whole length on the front side of the house--sounded like it was sucking in a lot of debris,and soon the vacuum was so full and heavy it couldn't be moved unless I rolled it on the wheels on the driveway...that stuff is incredibly heavy for just "dust" !..

After I dumped the vac out,I climbed up a few steps on a ladder,on my front steps,so I could see how clean the gutters were..to my chagrin,I had only removed maybe a 1" layer of the debris,the rest was still tightly packed in the gutter..many of the large nails holding them to the house are sticking out several inches too,I tried to hammer the ones I could reach back in..
Frankly I dont see how they have not been torn off the house,with that much weight on them..

Shortly after I decided it was a lost cause to keep vacuuming ,and my back was "done",it began pouring rain--HARD!..so hard ,for the first time ,I had water dripping inside the house!--over the kitchen sing there is a recessed light between the cabinets in a wooden enclosure,and the water was dripping out of the light fixture's lens and landing right in the kitchen sink..

Oh well--at least I didn't have to go look for a bucket..

I thought about borrowing a neighbors pressure washer and blast the crap out of the gutter,but I feared I'd make a huge mess,or perhaps have some more shingles get ripped off should my aim be poor--or the pressure would tend to make me fall off the ladder..

Right now the $350 I was quoted to clean the gutters doesn't sound like such a ripoff..
I bet the guy will want more, when he sees whats in them,and how hard it'll be to remove it all..

I hate gutters..with a metal roof the contractors I had give estimates for,tell me they would just take them off,you dont need them...I feel they only "work" a short time before clogging up with leaves and pine needles..

Re: Hurricane Florence

I think I payed 400 to clean mine TH. Its not a hard job to do at all once you get to them.. my problem is I have a vary tall house, with large overhangs so its tough to get to them with a ladder.. Add to that a bad fall I took when I was younger, makes being high on a ladder not something I want to do!!

Re: Hurricane Florence

It's not hard, if your young enough to climb a ladder and be able to stay on it more than a few minutes before your back & legs go numb!..

I never was any good on a ladder,especially if I can't hang on with both hands--I have balance issues or a vertigo problem up in high places..I'm lucky if I can swing a paint brush and do window trim or shutters that aren't up that high on a ladder--I have parked my van or truck right beside the house a few times and stood on the roof rather than use a ladder..

Lately I have a hard enough time just getting around on the ground..not going to risk falling if I can help it..

I hate heights (well--more like I hate FALLING from high places ,the fear of that makes me very useless on a ladder )..if I manage to get up on a roof,then I can't get back on the ladder to climb back down,and I'd rather not have to call the fire dept to come get me down..

My house has a hip roof and eaves that stick out about 2 feet past the walls,so most of any runoff that doesn't come out of the gutter downspouts tends to land far enough away from the foundation to not cause any water intrusion issues..

If I had one of those long staircase type warehouse ladders with steps and hand rails, ,I'd probably be able to get up on the roof and do more,I can climb stairs,but not ladders so much..its getting on and off ladders I hate most,but I'm also paranoid of falling,so trying to lift a heavy bucket full of shingle debris or roofing material,or a tarp, isn't something I'd be up to doing..

I'd only go on the front side of my roof too,the side to the rear facing the back yard is quite high,I'd guess 25 to 30 feet maybe--the front side gutters are only about 10 feet off the ground..

I just heard the latest weather forecast,they are predicting more monsoon rains for tomorrow into Wednesday morning here,at least 1-2".....that's just great...

This keeps up my ceilings will be destroyed,and they cant fix the roof while its pouring out..may have to end up paying someone to tarp it and hope that might last long enough so I can get enough cash up to do the roof repairs ,I'd rather do the whole roof than just one fourth of it if possible..every estimate I've gotten,they want 3/4 of the cost of a complete tear off,to just do only the front side that's failing,and no warranty,I'd prefer to get it all done at once,done right,not a patch job that will not mach the old shingles..

Very cloudy,and fairly cold here this morning,about 58 degrees with a gusty wind..not a great day to do much outside,but better than the next two will be..might mow my lawn,its getting thick and tall and with more rain coming it'll grow even more fast..

Re: Hurricane Florence

I had my roof replaced this past spring. Didn't even think about calling my insurance company. Seems like everyone is making claims but me from the wind storms we be getting. But anyways, they replaced some of the planking where it was rotten. I had 36 squares of architectural shingles with metal perforated gutter covers installed. They cleaned the gutters. 50 yr shingles .Cost 16 grand. The roofer told me if one of the oak trees in my yard was to fall on my house that the roof would hold it because I have planking and not plywood. If I had plywood, it would go through. So, that's a good thing to know. I had at least ten oak trees eighty to a hundred feet high removed or fell from storms over the years.

Re: Hurricane Florence

I am going to let my stupid out again. What does roof material have to do with having, or not having gutters? It doesn't matter what material I have on my roof, if I didn't have gutters to get the water away from the foundation, I would have problems in my basement.

Sometimes It's better to keep your mouth shut, and have the world think you a fool, than to speak, and remove all doubt.
