    Yeah, all the tyres were loaded and I usually have a Sicma 5' mower on the back but had taken that off as I was running a logging chain from the back to drag stuff out and the mower was getting in the way. The other scary part was if it had all gone tits-up no-one would know until I didn't turn up for work in two days time.

    I have the remains of a much older version of just that device. Sadly, a piece of heavy equipment nailed it years ago and mangled the frame beyond repair. The rake itself however was salvagable. Today, it's a 4ft 3pt hitch mounted rake. Too bad it won't work on my current tractor without reconfiguring the 3pt (rake is setup for Cat0.). Should paint and sell it.

    Today, I pushed leaves. Pile was far too large to effectively rake by hand (put it there with a blower) and couldn't really move it with the blower. So I pushed it into the woods with the loader like I was plowing snow. Should have taken pictures of the huge pile in front of my bucket.
    I like to play in the dirt....

    HEY NOW! You Two Cut it OUT!

    Driving the mower & tractor is NOT violating DR orders. I did not lift more than 5 lbs with my right hand (that's my story, and I'm sticking to it). In fact the FEL joystick weighs nothing!

    I told the wife I can't lift 5 lbs, but the tractor FEL can lift 2700, therefore I can ONLY do tractor related honey-do's for 6 weeks!

    I moved a big tree, but I did not fire up the chainsaw.

    I am TRYING to ollow DR's orders...

    My hand/wrist seems to be doing well. I am wearing the splint all the time. I try to pick up the baby using my arm and not my hand, she will not allow me to not pick her up though (I could not do that regardless).

    I will say the constant leaning back and using that lever on the York rake to control depth of rake absolutely beat my left hand to death...

    I do not know if I will get any seat time today, but I hope I will. The big Franklin 300 hp mulcher arrives about 0830...

    There are two more large downed trees I want for firewood he may get close to. I wonder if I can skid them out... Depends on how fast it goes and how much he gets done in my 8 hours of mahine time today. I will start a seperate thread for that...

    Be well,
    David

    It sure was a nice day to be out, fall is my favorite time of year. We will be back out again today as it is supposed to rain in a day or so.

    Thanks, she usually doesn't allow pictures, but I kind of caught her off guard.

    Sure do, that was her trimming saw, a Stihl 180, she had already sectioned a big Oak up with her Stihl 250 so I could push it out of the way; can't give firewood away around here for some reason. I use to cut trees up for the firewood. We have several big Oaks down and no one wants them.

    I hope your idea of following Dr orders is not like my father in law's. If no one saw him doing it, it didn't count.

    RE:MossflowerWoods Please let us know how that Mulcher work is coming along. I almost have my burn pile ready, just waiting for a downpour to wet the surrounding area. I have a 20x40 tarp over the burn pile to keep it dry. Have a good day.
