    Default You know you\'ve got \'it\' bad when.....

    ..every project that comes up, the first thing you think is 'How can i use the tractor to fix this? '...

    I noticed my electric fence wasn't operating. So I started driving the fence line, and when i got to the back corner, I noticed a large limb from a broad leafed tree had partially broken and was lieing across the the fence and my turkey coop. Luckilly the extra bracing from the turkey coop held the 3board / wire fence up. But that was the source of the fence fault. The top 'hot wire' on the fence was now generously touching the wire fence...

    As soon as i saw it I though... How am i going to use the tractor to fix this. ..Ironically, everything is positined so that I can't get the tractor in the area to maneuver to do any real 'work' the only thing I can do is tie the limb off to the tractor and use it as a weight, while i finish cutting it. No chance of further damage to the fence, or the limb falling on the tractor as it is a low one, protruding from the tree at only about 7' up.
    Oh well.. looks like I actually have to do some work.....

    ...and the really ironic thing is how much time and effort we spend figuring out how to use our tractors to do the work [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].

    My neighbor has a sign in his shop;

    STOP - THINK ABOUT IT
    There must be a
    harder way to do it!

    Yeah on some jobs it may take longer with the tractor, but it is my "back". With a bad back I could not do many of the things I do without the tractor. The loader is great, moved about 2 tons of scrap steel today with it. Could not have done it without it.
    I just bought this place last year and so far the largest crop has been iron, just about getting it cleaned up though.
