On January 24th we set out the fourth round bale for this winter season. It is stored with the bale spear in it, hooked the SSQA to the bale spear:

Lifted it and backed out of the old cow barn:

Took it to the horse barn, the plastic pallet is ready with the hay net on it in the horse style bale ring:

Dropped it in on end with the net wrap on it, so it would not fall apart like last time:

Pulled up the hay net and laced it together with a small diameter nylon rope:

Needed to remove the fence between the old cow barn and the old cow shed:

Chained and ready to pull it out of the ground:

It moved up some, but the end next to the barn didn't come up. So moved over and pulled it loose:
P1300005.JPG


Moved back near the middle and chained on:

Raised and extended the boom:

Moved forward:

Now I can drive in between the buildings.

Wife noticed a tree that didn't have green leaves this spring:
P5120018.JPG


All of its branches are on one side, so she was concerned it would hit the trailer barn if and when it fell.

The V417 and stump bucket will eliminate her concern. First push:

The trunk started to break:
P5120037.JPG


Used the stump bucket to break some roots on both sides:
P5120038.JPG
P5120041.JPG


Next push:
P5120043.JPG


Next push, it is moving:
P5120044.JPG


View from the seat, down and out:

It landed right where it needed to land:

That's one thing I miss about my old IH2500b. It could push stuff like that over no problems. Now, on the rare occasion I need to do that, I have to use the chainsaw to fell the tree, then decide if I want to tackle digging the stump or not.... mostly not. ;)

Chained it to the front of the stump bucket:
P5130003.JPG


Raised it up and chained it to the back of the stump bucket:
P5130004.JPG


Raised the boom and headed for the gate into the pasture:
P5130009.JPG


Made it to the pasture, almost to the brush pile:
P5130010.JPG


Unhooked the back chain:

Lowered the boom and unhooked the front chain:
20220513_120430.jpg


Found the balance spot:

Made it to the brush pile:
P5130012.JPG


Set it on the pile:
P5130015.JPG


Looked like the wind could blow it off, so I moved it back farther:

A rare October ice storm two years ago broke a lot of limbs because the leaves were still on. I got the ones in the yard right away, but there are several more broken limbs out on the property.

Here are two that need to come down:
P4270003.JPG


Clamped on, using the Long Reach Tree Puller:
P4270008.JPG


It broke off when I retracted the boom:
P4270009.JPG


View from the seat of the other one:
P4270010.JPG


Clamped on:
P4270011.JPG


Retracted the boom:
P4270012.JPG


And backed up:
P4270013.JPG


Two down, many more to do. :cry:

I had a Bobcat 773 skid steer.Thought it would be the cats meow for doing things around my place. It turns out that it isn't. The slightest up hill climb with nothing in the bucket it wants to sit on it's tail. If i'm trying to move things around, being alone, it is ny on impossible to get out of the thing to hook up a chain on something with the loader at the heighth you need it. I sold it and bought a Kubota with an fel. I put a boxblade on the back for counterweight and fluid in the rear wheels. Lifts anything I need. Works great lasts long time!

Xfaxman,
Did Bobcat freeze production on Versahandlers? As in not making any right now?
hugs, Brandi
