today we moved a couple of tank sheds using the Green Toy and of course we found out the boom is a little short but we got the job done.

yesterday it was Canada day in Canada but we were too busy working to enjoy the party. the Green Toy got used to unload this broken grade which to be lifted on the front end so the mold board would clear the trailer deck when being dragged off. on the advise of my lawyer who advertises after midnight on TV, this will be the only picture i can post. all other pictures show the Green Toy being used way beyond the limits of the machine which makes Wile E. Coyote look like a safe operator of equipment, lol. thansk

I suspect when you are done that it’ll be a better setup than when it was new?

Is this grader old enough?....to be a legitimate addition to the Kingdom? It looks to be in the right shape and condition to be a citizen....

I know it's not horse drawn but still...ya know...
