The 4540 went in for it's 500 hour checkup (598 on it when it went in) so I had them change all the fluids,oil and filters, everything was fine.

This winter the 4540 will be inside a new 28 x 36 garage which should be finished before the end of August....depending on the weather. The pad and blocks are done with the next step starting on Monday. garage4.JPGblocks.JPGgarage5.JPGgarage1.JPGgarage3.JPG

Anyone out there have a bolt on mechanical thumb for the 4550B backhoe? Or have a recommendation for a thumb kit that will fit the 4550B?
Mahindra is really proud of their thumb!

The limbing up I did yesterday is gone to a wood dump, we had a little over three loads that filled the utility trailer.

When I came back, I decided it was time I washed and waxed the Rhino and the tractor. What I washed and waxed on the tractor was the hood and the fenders.
I have just over 1000 hours on the 4540 without any problems, most of those hours are from plowing in the winter. The pictures don't load in order for some reason.

My plan was to remove four stumps but one is near a nice Maple tree so I'll zip that off closer to the ground, the first two were smaller and the third stump I zipped off the top some so I could plant it right back where it came from.

This will give us a small trail in that area for walking or running the four wheeler on it.

I adjusted the brakes on the 4540 today and I cleaned the battery post off. Our plow we use on the 4540 started to show some rust in a certain area so I took a wire brush on a drill and cleaned up both sides. I took some paint thinner and cleaned the areas off good which I'll start painting tomorrow with Por - 15, I'll give this side two coats and then do the same on the other side which will make it ready for snow.

I do think we'll need a new battery before winter.

I took three utility trailer loads to the wood dump today, I used the forks on the 4540 to get everything I piled up yesterday and some dead pine at the other end where the trail will come through.

The tree on picture 0771 will come down since it will never be a good tree, then more pickup of the woods floor and three more dead rotten pine will come down before I get the Rhino or tractor in there.

I brought a bunch of Ash tops and dead Pine to the wood dump. Picture 0879 is the first load from the pile that was next to the two Pines in picture 0880, 0881 & 82 are more dead chit from different areas, 0883 had a bunch of dead Pine in it before today, and 0884 & 85 were two trails that were blocked of with piles of dead branches which I loaded up last night.

I was able to take two utility trailer loads of junk pine to the wood dump using the 4540 with the forks. I used the forks to raise the pine mother nature brought down so I could buck it up and then split it and bring over to the outdoor fireplace.

I removed some snow on the northeast of our house, with the sun getting stronger and March around the corner, it would just melt and follow the natural drain down into the woods.

I pushed the snow deep into the woods on the northside of the house, if it melts and then freezes it doesn't matter.

The first two pictures are after and the last two are before.
