I didn't notice it when I unloaded because of all the slop up on the trailer deck, but I saw an oil stain on that side of the deck after all the mud dried up. Couldn't remember if it was there from a previous cargo, or was new.

There's a story of that previous cargo, but there isn't enough beer on the table....

Nice tig weld. I usually use SS tig Rod on regular carbon steel.

I welded up a rub hole on forklift line years ago, and to my knowledge it is still working. Of course, since it been almost two years since I moved on, I would not know for sure.

Yep, right there in the first sentence. I too, have never seen such a critter. I have heard of "high yaller" ones, quite a long time ago. I don't think they exist at this current time in history.

Looks like a good tool Gerry. I've never seen a swing boom on a machine with a circle, is that common now? Going to bring the fish wheel home this weekend.

Moe, you aren't paying attention.
I have referred to my JD loader as a yellow nigger in the past...in the set up a mobile thread. It does the dirty jobs I can't do anymore

Maybe the JP-4 fumes

What kind of operator is the dog??


What happened to the Gorilla Duct Tape method?? A piece of 5/8” heater hose and 5 or 6 hose clamps?? Or some of that clear Flex-Seal Tape?? Damn Canadians, always doing it the hard way!

Wheel did poorly. There was one good run at the end of July. Robert's wheel just down stream was getting a couple hundred a day for several days, but we had nobody there. don't know why Bill Bayless or Robert didn't call one of us, but they didn't.

The swing boom is more common on small machines to allow more access in tight spots. Digging up tight along walls, or offsetting to dig a ‘square’ hole etc.

Or offset a heavy load right and you can crowd it in tighter...helps keep you from going on your nose....not that I’ve ever done either of those.....

Duct tape was tried, and it was found that paint was superior to anything for stopping a leak. It appears that when they sprayed black paint, it ran behind there and a glob settled in the rock pit and stayed til I pushed some dirt with the blade.

The dog is learning, but with a dog's attention span, a squirrel chattering can ruin everything.
Huh? a bouncy ball, oh gimme, gimme!
NO!
Whine?
No dogbones til you finish spreading that fill.
