Getting ready for the muni contract.
Got the thumb grapple going yesterday evening. Still a bit left to do to mod the bucket, but I'm going to be playing with it at first light. Beats getting on and off the tractor and having to man handle the big rounds. Safer and more productive.
I picked this unit up in Centralia, IL. The guy sells them on ebay too, and will ship, but I wanted a road trip and to see what I was getting. So far so good.
Picked up the new welder yesterday. Its gonna be another week and a half or so before the compressor gets in. I didn't realize it would take that long, so I kinda screwed myself there, as I can't do too much on the chipper project without it. Oh well..
Its a nice machine, does 22 gauge to 1/2". That should take care of my welding needs for pretty much the rest of my days.
I put it on an interest free credit card (along with the wraptor and slingshot), I have till September to actually pay for it. No sense in totally draining the bank during winter.. not that I'm not working on that as well. Lol.

Just got back last night from a week long snowmobile trip. 2,800 km (1,740 miles). More of a test of endurance than a vacation.
The city finally started the removal of the ash (EAB) that's on my front yard. Guess they'll come and do the trunk later.
Going to spend the weekend with the family and then start prepping the equipment for the upcoming season. Spent some time last night catching up on AS.

Snowing like a mutha here and I'm getting ready for round 1 of plowing. Thank goodness the Mrs. is home safe and sound, that's one less thing for me to worry about as I'll more then likely be pushing snow all weekend..
Glad to hear she is home
Think Asinine will ever answer a question about comp?
