    Not if you had to fix them,,,,, or operate one. Only at the end, mid 70's or so, did they use swiggle sticks, before that, 8 sticks, 4 foot pedals.

    Fixing them, all I can say, these were built with real iron. None of this wimpy "engineered boom" stuff. And a real engine, two-stroke Detroit Diesel.

    Oh, big cylinders, high flow, low pressure hydraulics, but same or better tonnage. Old style stacked leather or rubber seals. Repacking those cylinders, is why my skin is so silky smooth today, no lines or wrinkles. Ask Ed.

    Oh, yeah, back in the day, didn't worry about dumping oil on the ground, either. Just dug a hole, covered it up afterwards, built a house on top of it. Good termite prevention

    Ok, Ed. Very funny. I had no idea who Mr. Slate was, remember, I don't watch TV, never have. Asked my wife (who by the way, is far more cool than I am), very much a "with it" gal, she clued me in. I've been out of it for years, of course

    Ed, more like she was embarrassed. Couldn't believe that a guy as dumb as I, could snooker a girl as smart as she is, into marrying.
