Default Bad as Tim

My appetite is bigger than my stomach. But then again, I did not really research how big this machine was before making the deal on it. And I didn’t want to drive 3-1/2 hours to look at it before buying. Oh well. Hopefully I will get it to make some chips someday, after I figure out how to unload it, or pay a wrecker to come unload it for me. Click image for larger version

That is a BIG machine! At least it is not stuck in the mud/dirt and you will most likely be able to use it!

Manual says 9000. The equipment moving guy I picked it up from said 9-10000.

Kids, do not try this at home. I should have known better, but I did it anyways. My 1500 truck pulled it back 230 miles. I only reached 60 once, most of the time was under 55. And that was too fast for an emergency stop. I had one motorcycle pass me, and 1/2 mile ahead I was putting on the brakes trying to slow down because he was turning left, and had to wait for oncoming traffic. He would have been taken out if there was not an opening in traffic.

If I had researched it more, or looked at it in person, I would have passed on it. But life’s lessons.

Has a 10 hp motor in it. I’m not sure if it’s wired for 220, or 440, but I am guessing 440.

Ya know the ol saying. Go big or go home. Well, I brought it home.

There is some saying about Experience comes from poor decisions.

But you made it home, nothing broke, nobody died, I'd call it a win.

Now the question, is what did you pay for it?

I've always said "experience" is what you get when things don't go your way. More or less the same thing
