New manuals available at the yahoo groups

Recommended Posts

CasualObserver

I know most of you read or follow at least one of the major yahoo groups, but for those who don't check in regularly, you might miss this.

Hi everyone, I have recently acquired some more manuals I will be

sharing, I still have to get the ones I'll be putting in the yahoo

groups ready, but I did also get some larger "compilation" type

manuals done, and Keith over at www.wheelhorse.org has agreed to host

them for us. They're too large to put into yahoo, and it's kind of

annoying to break them in half, so there's about 45 MB worth in 6

manuals, so go on over to WheelHorse.org and check it out if you're

interested, (if they're not up yet, they will be soon) and look back

here soon for some new tillers/snow throwers/blades and a few other

odds and ends. Thanks to all for making these groups such a big success!

Just thought I'd make sure nobody misses out! WheelHorse.org

EDIT: 11:30 am

Just got a note from Keith, he's got the new one's loaded on his manuals page.Wheel Horse . Org manuals page

They look to be broken down into several chunks. If there is one which you really want, I could try to compress it for you to make it download quicker

Karl, if you can compress it and not lose picture quality... I'm all for it, but I'm afraid you'll lose too much of the quality in any of the pictures. They're scanned as text at 300 dpi. I've tried doing 200 dpi, and photo and various other combinations... i always lose to much for my liking. I've also tried compression with Adobe, after scanning, but it drops too much of the gray from the pictures. ends up looking funny. :D

Like I said the other day... bad news for your dial up Dale... want me to burn and mail you a CD? :P

Never said it wouldn't lose quality, it sure would. I remember using dialup modems and downloading for hours then when complete not needing, or worse yet, already having what was just sent.

wow... that worked pretty good... what do you use to zip? When I try to zip that same file, I can only get it down to about 6.5 MB? which isn't enough of a difference between 8.1 MB for me to worry about messing with.

and for the record... when you said compress... I thought you meant compress the file itself...

The first thing that I did was to use the Adobe Reduce File Size and make it Adobe 4.0 compatible, this brought the file size down to 6.2MB. From there, I right clicked the PDF and "Send To --> Compressed "zipped" folder" which brough the size to 4.8MB. It is still big for dialup folks, but it is a little less than half the size of the original which eases the pain, even if just a little bit (and maybe Dale can delete half of his wait. and wait. and wait. and wait. and wait's) :D

I agree... I remember the pains of dial up as well.... Thanks for doing that...

and Dale, FYI... there is one of those manuals that is already in the yahoo group... the prior models V - ag attachments.... I scanned the copy I got from toro a while back. the new version has better pictures, i leave it up to you to determine if you want to spend the time on that one!

By the way, my first modem was 1200 baud. There wasn't an internet at the time (or AOL for that matter) and everyone had to dial into the services they wanted. Even though I had the fast 1200 baud modem, most bullletin boards were 300 or 150 baud. Now, if you want to see slow...... Imagine each letter in this post take about a half second each!

All I can say to that is God bless technology! I never used a modem that early, but I did have a "lightening fast" 28.8 K, which as I recall never managed to transfer anything above about 2.5K anyway... so it's like I had a 2500 baud modem! :D (which I realize is still twice as fast as your 1200, so man, that must've been :P:(:( slow.) but on the bright side... you probably didn't have more than a 16 color screen either!
