    Got ourselves and a few nieghbors dug out today. Also dropped the girls off at my parents for a sleepover. Roads still aren’t to pleasant but passable. Only six inches of snow but with the population in the area it might as well have been two feet. People get really stupid when we get over a couple of inches. Single digit temps now with a windchill of -10. I’ll be out before sunrise recleaning the drive and splitting firewood since they already cancelled work for tomorrow. Fine by me. I was supposed to be climbing and topping trees at an airport because they are messing with accurate wind readings.

    Hopefully he’s on his way back because everything from Cleveland south to 70 got buried in snow on Saturday.

    Iím guessing over a half mill, maybe closer to one. I remember that Mayer had two machines at the Ď17 expo that were $800,000 each just to get them to the US. A rather large outfit with a very large range of services. Also a very good place to work from what I was told. Changed my guesstimate. 1.5 million

    So itís been a while since Iíve complained about my mini. This past season it has run great. No track problems, no sensor problems. I called my dealer to order more tracks just so I could have them on hand in case. The dealer tells me there is a recall and toro will pay for a whole new undercarriage. I said great and brought it into the shop. 3 days later I get it back and the thing runs awful. Slow, and no power. We stumble through the first job and I call the dealer to tell him. On the 2nd job it runs so terribly that I put in on the trailer and drive it to the dealer to exchange it for a loaner. When I get there the loaner machine(brand new out of the box) runs like shit. They give me and older wide track for the time being. They call later to say I put gas in the diesel. Then later they say it was just bad diesel. Then later they say there were wood chips in the fuel. They change filters and put new fuel in it and give it back. Itís running but still underpowered it has a hard time multitasking. Bogging down but not to the point of stalling. It also canít turn as well as it use to. To top it all off I got charged for the loaner and the filters and such. I saw the fuel. It was all diesel. I saw the wood chips. It was about a teaspoon in 10 gallons. Either way it ran great till I gave it to these guys and now it runs like shit. -end of rant

    I don’t fret killing chickens or roosters Jim. I take care of my friends rogue birds since he about got divorced for shooting a rooster with a bad attitude. He marks them and I take care of it when she’s not around and he is at work. I get free yard bird and he’s free of the headaches. Shit, I just admitted to being a mercenary.

    He checked out but they know to keep an eye on him. Roads weren’t great this morning but from my investigating and knowing how I was at his age, he dozed off and panicked when he awoke from the rough ride and over corrected. This shot him across the road into the embankment causing the roll over. No brake marks even in the lawn where he first went off the road. I walked it off and the distances are goofy. First roll was very violent. No marks from the driver side to the place it came to rest. Had to do one in the air. Just to much distance and from the amount of space on the first roll it was spinning fast.

    On my list to visit. All that moss still bothers me. In my area moss and lichens seem to mean brittle and sketchy trees.

    Dang Hayburners:O Right when I finished cleaning up from breakfast my neighbor called asking if I would drive him to go pull his son out of a ditch. No problem. Highway patrol got there before us. I have no idea how the kid was ok and how he forgot to mention to his dad that he had rolled the vehicle twice. He was pretty lucky. I already took a half dozen new fence posts out to the farmer for them. My neighbor took the boy to the hospital to at least get looked at. Iím now taking a break from sled riding with the kids. I need to haul some wood up to the house and then start doing some research on a few machines. Weíve got a demo lined up and another one in the works.

    Congrats John. Hope that none of us have to visit you at work. I’ll pass on the grubs. Eaten them before in my young and dumber days. Well the PTO decided to blow apart on my personal bucket truck while I was renting it to my boss yesterday at ten minutes till four. By the time I was able to get myself down and find the problem all the places were closed so no parts till some time Monday at the earliest. The mechanic and I were able to rig the pump in enough to lower the boom and lift the out riggers. Since it happened on company time but it’s being rented to him, I’m buying the parts and he’s covering labor. Fair enough for me. Spent today putting the new hydraulic tank on my old Vermeer 1250. Drained the four year old fuel and changed the filters and got it running. It’s going up for sale. I prefer the 250xp. Should’ve sold the 1250 when I bought the bandit. The re-man motor,clutch, and radiator have less than 100 hours but are five years old now. Need to find a chip body for one truck so I can sell another. Hoping to get these headaches done in the winter months so I can concentrate on other things come springtime.

    The horseshoe thing is rather popular. A friend of mine makes decent side money making signs and decorations out of them. Buys them new for a good rate is all he will tell me. I know they come shipped by ups since they get delivered to the shop. Says you need to have a good backing from the craft shows as well. His wife must be the face of this venture because he would scare the bajeezes out of someone wanting to buy anything. He’s basically a grease monkey version of me.

    I’ve decided that the 12,16, and 24 ounce curls aren’t doing me any good. I’m cutting way back, getting up early, and just getting in some relax time with no one else awake. Feel much better.

    While the guys were moving along on some removals, I went to a little job next door and pretended I was doing the Tahunne Airwalk job. Only 15 foot tall though. Just tossed the chunks over a fence onto a couple sheets of plywood

    Basically they said I would be met at the gate by the feds if I tried to leave with out going through the proper procedures. Takes an hour just to leave some of the sites. The FB& I was paying tribute to how Roscoe P Coaltrain would refer to them. Anyhow it’s quite a headache but I get paid to sit through it all. I probably have 40-50 hours a year sitting in a classroom watching videos of do’s and don’ts Just to be able to enter these places. Seems a bit unreasonable to have a bit of treework done

    No he’s serious about that. I’ve been on certain sites where they do a search before entering. Some things are kept secret for proprietary reasons and others are considered national security. I’ve asked questions on a few. I was told that the FB & I would beat me to the gate if I was to leave without the proper headaches

    treebilly replied to a thread Rigging rings in Gear Forum
    I’ve got a few Cory. I spliced up two ultra ring slings and they are my go to for redirects or small to medium sized terminal points. Two on dead eyes that come out from time to time and a rig n ring set up that rarely gets to play. I also carry a half dozen mini blocks these days plus a coupe or three of the big boys. My safebloc has ridden in my Tahoe for months. I’m still mad at it so it doesn’t get to see any fun. I really like the rings for redirects and for fishingpoling those tall bowed bastards.

    I tip tie all the time. I just did a silver maple the other day where all the leads attached low to the ground. I tied all the tips, the groundsman cut most of the buts, and the grapple came and drug everything out in the appropriate direction. Tight space in between houses and fences. Not for greenhorns. There is a time and place for most methods.

    Ground guy played a part. If he let it run it would’ve been below everyone. Basically what you said about the riffing point being almost above or further away was what I was trying to refer to as the “place” to use it.

    That was a good example of when to use it Patrick. I use them a handful of times every month. Even more rare is when I have to add another one to keep the piece balanced and from twisting. Nicely done. I’m really enjoying the videos. They’ve been great tools for showing my crew what I want to set up
