OK, we had one post demanding pictures and now this one's begging for words.

Is this one of those "add your own caption" games?

Well to stay on topic, Steph you did a good job on posting the pictures.

Nuf has maybe not noticed that the edit button disappears here now.

Now this being posted in "Off Topic" let's proceed with it.

Burner, I think you're close, it's a write your own story type thread. Mine involves an insurance risk exposure inspector and an unhappy ending for him. Don't bother Nuf when he's on Holiday.

Ok here is the story Because the economy in NZ sucks so bad I have been on enforced holiday for the last 10 days with another 7 days to go.So I have been catching up on some work around home .The tree was one my ex wife planted I couldn't convince her that tree's grow and it was not a wise place to plant one of them there .Those tree's have a bad habit of falling over and it would take out the water tank or the corner of the house .Because it was so big I needed to cut it from the top down hence the Cherry Picker Which had been parked up for so long the cows had chewed the wireing so it was a rewireing job and a general check over and clean up. Luckerly it extends out to 10.7meters becuse it was almost at full reach to get to the top .So now it is gone and the mess all cleaned up The Cherry Picker is now out on site where I picked up a cash job making and erecting a steel Portal frame out of 250x90mm channel Its amazing what this thing will lift the frame is 1.2 tons and the builder was worried it would get blown over in the wind.Sorry no pictures of the build Steph had the camera but its not standing up yet so I will try to rememeber to take some of the erection phase of the job Well thats the story behind that group of photo's Cutter can juggle my story and photo's around if he thinks they need it cause I'm out of edit time

Now the photo's of the tractor.I do own a blade for the back of the tractor but I got tired of looking backwards to use it. So I build one for the front .After ransacking my inventory stocks the whole build cost $80 for 2 top links for the angle adjustment The blade is adjustable for angle and tilt with enough hydraulic power to lift the front of the tractor off the ground.I even found an in line hydraulic filter so that got fitted .One of the things these tractors did not have fitted was an oil filter on the hydraulics which is the same oil that is in the gearbox it only has a suction strainer on the hyd pump which lets all sorts of nasties through And another pump is like rocking horse shit to find.Now I have a blade (which my brother wants to borrow already) filtered oil and a 2 bank control fitted so I can power other stuff I have yet to think of and build. Cutter I think this needs to be moved to fabrication if you would please thanks

Curious about the tractor blade?
