Oldie but Goodie Posted by Rob Honders on 01/05/2012

In the early '70's I had only a Davis loader on it and managed to dig out the basement foundation of my house with it. A 55 gal drum filled with rocks on the drawbar gave it traction. After the house and 1/5 mile driveway the Oliver sat in the woods for 25 years. Then I got it running again and re-built the diesel and fitted it with a York rake for driveway maintenance duty.

Tough machine! Google Honders Hydro for more info.
