    Whut a day!

    That's actually a load of pulpwood hes loading now David, We are getting a lot of it out of the way to make room to start pushing what we call plywood peelers over, bout 2 and half or 3 ft at the stump, and not a limb on it for a way long while. Got some big hardwoods to push over also, haul it to tie mill. Saving them for last, they tend to make a mess on the ground. randyp

    Wife axed me that same question,,,still cant think of an answer, just cant seem to sit still very long I guess, I don't even know. I never seem to buy anything very new either, cept the bobcat. Seem attracted to the 60s and 70s stuff, must be trying to go backwards I guess. I am having a good time though, guess its good to enjoy your work. Who was it that said,,"Pick a job you like, and you will never work a day in your life". I did 30 years in the coal mine, damn sure never enjoyed a single day of it though! randyp

    Thanks Mark, yeah, I really miss Spot, that dern dog was one of a kind, this is gonna be a good one too though, just not as mean and aggressive as Spot. Ifn she don't get a log dropped on her or run over by skidder or dozer or ground up in chipper. She stays in way too much. randyp

    Actually, I do have wood. During my long absence, I went in the logging bidness. What I don't grind up, throw in on truck and haul, just the goodest, biggest, wood only. Yeah, I know, old timberjack is a relic, but so am I,,,randyp

    It wasn't easy, had to dig some back out coupla times and till and plow and air it out. Kept it domed a lil in middle and had a coupla lil drainage ditches on a lower side and bought 600.00 of black plastic to cover it during rains. sheepsfoots aren't recommended for clay, it needs "static compaction" ie dump truck, front end loader, scraper, etc. vibration is not recommended, smooth drum rollers work ok. randyp

    I dint get foot controls, I hate then too. Its got hand controls and with the flip of a switch, you can change the pattern of them. I have it set on the old "case skid steer pattern" randyp

    Thanks all, I don't even wanna clear with a dozer anymore, its just too dern much fun to run over shit and chop it up. Total cost came to bout 120 with attachments. I been keeping it real busy at 150.00 an hour though. You have to charge heavy for the forestry cutter, its a high wear and maintenance item. randyp

    This chipper is for rent to anyone who wants to deal with some "evidence". Just give it a good cleaning afterward. Goes on front of bobcat. randyp
