Nice picture. The angle and extension on the bucket makes it look bigger than the xcavator and the dozer Mr. 4570!

I did a little clearing job today. Unfortunately this subdivision doesn’t allow burning and I had to haul the bush. This job wasn’t big enough to justify moving the 320.

I pulled my chains off today, I was getting tired of feeling like I was driving a pogo stick. Then I did a mud run down to me shed, where there was about 1200 lbs of old, hardened concrete mix and 3 bags of Portland Cement. I may regret it but brought them up and dumped them off the end of the gravel pad I'm building for my garage, then broke them up with the bucket. They should make good fill, after getting covered with another 1 1/2 feet of gravel.

I worked on my big clearing job with the bigger equipment and got the little clearing job with little equipment done. I had to haul the brush off the little job because burning isn’t allowed. Luckily my big job where burning is allowed is only 3 miles away.

4570 apparently I missed a post somewhere that told of your move to TN.
Or is this your first stop on your westward migration to CO

I think you have him confused with the old Coloradoan at heart hunt4570.

I dug some more stumps with the 320. Even a 45,000 pound machine doesn’t dig stumps as easily as I’d hoped. A ripper would make a big difference but they’re expensive and I’ll probably sell this machine after this job is done.

Tonight I had to load my snowsled to bring it to storage for the summer. My ramps have already been swapped over for my ATV. It used to be that if I could get one ski on the tailgate I could load the sled. Not tonight though, I messed with it for a few minutes then went and got the tractor. It could be that sleds are getting heavier, I'm getting wimpier, or truck beds are getting higher but I ran a chain to each ski strut and lifted the front end into the truck. Then unhooked, tied onto the back of the sled and slid it in.
It may have been the lazy man's way but right now my back doesn't hurt so that's a win to me. Plus there's no pick marks in the tailgate. 👍

Working smarter, not harder?

Sounds smart to me anyway. I use my forks to set in and take out my 5th wheel hitch in the bed of my truck each season.

Today's set time was highly limited. I was setting up to rehang my FEL bucket and the steering got squirrely. Then I heard the pffft of a hydraulic line going. The long hydraulic line ended up being a 3 hole line instead of the designed 2 hole. I've been looking at the hoses for a couple of years and one gave up..Oring flat faced on one end x #6 JIC (45 degree). Carquest had no angled JICs, Eastern Hydr had no flat face, Hydra Hose took care of me to the tune of $130 ish 🤮 . At least the hoses failed in the tractor yard and it happened early enough on a weekday to get some new ones built.;) Back together on Saturday.

Your reaction to a snake is a tad bit different then mine.
I might have put the pieces back together to identify it after the tire and bucket got through with it.

Oh nice pond also.
