roll cage cracked/broke

Recommended Posts

well when i rolled due to the steering shaft issue and landed on the side it cracked the front roll bar at the A pillar, were the small bar is welded to the hoop, it is cracked about 80% of the way around the weld and tore about 1/4 inch in the tube. Funny thing is that it was resting on the roof rack while on its side so you think it would cave that in ,break the studs or something but no. It may have been from the load placed on it due to the roof rack and puling the cage. Its kinda scary that it came apart, but hey it did its job @ 40 mph and a new roll bar is being shipped today

I plan on reinforcing my roll cage. Just havn't done it yet. Glad you didn't get hurt. Crashes are always a little scarry. Fortunately we walk away from most.

      I'm working on a 2005 Cub Cadet side by side and I'm trying to remove the front two axles.  I have a slide hammer puller on the inner joint and with all my strength they will not budge.   Anyone have the same issues and is there something I'm missing or a trick of some sort to pull these out?   Any suggestions please and thank you.

      New machine, tilt wheel won't "tilt" and I don't want to force anything.  Owner's manual says to pull pin, adjust, release pin in desired position.  I can feel the pin moving, but wheel won't lower.  Any suggestions instead of taking it all the way back to the dealer?  Thanks in advance...

      Hey guys,

      While installing the High lifter lift kit in my 2015 Mule 4010 I nicked the piston, strut rod, the shiney rod in the middle that I cant remember the name (no coffee yet this morning). I knew the nick was deep enough to eventually tear up the seal and she'd let loose. Well 3 months or so down the road here we are, its blown out. 
       
      My question is how do I know which strut I have? I see 2 listed in the exploded 45023-1006 and the 45023-7503. The difference is the spring rate or K value. Seeing as I have high lifter springs does it matter the K value? And if that's the case can I use any of the 45023 prefix struts from various other models? 

      Thanks all,
       
      Andrew
