For $3500 I think I'd be out there with a shovel unsticking it myself...

You have a backhoe and a loader to use. What is keeping you from digging the D8 out? If the D8 will start and you dig down next to the tracks, blade and draw bar, between the D8 and the loader pulling, it should come out. A couple of hours work.

You have time. You have equipment. Find some patience.

If the grade for the mill isn’t 100% it won’t matter. Learn to adjust it and check it every now and again.

Until my grandfather bought the woodmiser bandmill, he’d get a circular mill brought in, usually once a year for a few weeks. It was just set up on a grassy area, and would get adjusted and shimmed as needed to get the mill level and square.

Unloading went ok for the most part. But the big section of track I should have split up.

I've got one of the head blocks bound up. What would be the best way to go about freeing it up? David Riggs the steel channel is bent in such a way that the rack will not move. Not sure if it happened when loading or unloading or when the roof of the saw mill shed blew down on top of everything.

This bound up rack is not impacting the rest of the head blocks moving.



Also noticed the setworks advances forward nice and easy but retracting the head blocks takes a lot of effort.

That track loader is for sale. My use is on borrowed time. Honestly with it for sale I don't like using it. Keep thinking in the back of my mind what if it messes up? A repair could exceed the cost of hiring the work done.

The dozer’s been stuck for almost two years. A shovel would have had it out by now.

Previous attempts have been tried to get it out with equipment already avalible to me. Just made it worse. We tried digging down next to the one track that will still turn and under and in front of the blade and behind the D8 and tried to rock it around with the 943 loader. She didn't budge.

At some point I have to stop doing EVERYTHING on my own and pay some money to get a few things done around here. Work load and demand has gone up and has left me with less time out here.

Hopefully im not coming across as a ass. 95% of the progress you see posted in this thread is from my work and my work alone. Getting burnt out on just me all the damn time. I might borrow equipment from my neighbor but he's not here, he's busy being self employed and supporting a family.
