Wish I had that front loader.

Moving 2 piles by hand. Fun fun, getting to old for this. But hey it is helping after winter to get my butt back into shape.

Thank goodness I got a good wife. She is right there shoveling too.
We are using alot of the better dirt for leveling she wants done. Rest is for my target area.

I just finished dozer blading, grading then dragging a neighbors yard to prep for seed. Did it with this little devil. Pulled a stump out too. I have it weighed pretty heavy with 80lb cast iron in the rear wheels and another 160lbs of cast iron suitcases hanging off the rear. It’s pretty impressive what it will move 9E99332E-33D0-4AC9-81AE-37875755A6D6.jpeg 593325D4-DC96-4B2A-9447-AAF2BA740B2F.jpeg A1C9DCB9-2652-4554-A520-955B45C58E2E.jpeg 714C4392-B534-4DA6-BBFE-C1D58D7F9919.jpeg

Working on a maroon 42cc clamshell for a local. Said been setting 2 years after he noticed fuel leak. Saw came in apart. Clammy not apart.
All I found was all his lines shrunk. Fill tank fuel come up into carb area floor.

Forgot pic. Wallyworld I seen sold these years back in Maroon. I have a leaf blower and trimmer in maroon that was give to me.

Yesterday 1 done 1 to go. Used Boss snowplow on truck to get up the foot packed to load more of it to get as low as we could.

They don’t make them like that anymore... that’s a pretty impressive little beast there. I had looked at the old SATO beavers that had front loaders. I would see them come for sale here and there for like $3000 and at our old place it would’ve been a perfect size.

It’s 12hp, but with a 2 speed rear with deep gears it pulls unbelievable. They did make loaders for them too. Ark, quick way and Johnson all made nice loaders.

Yeah. Modified Mark made some up about 10 years ago. Did a heck of a job. At this point I can’t even remember how it ran stock!
I thought something look kind strange about that muffler, wondered how a 5200 got shoe horned on a 3700.

Has a 4000 intake on it too. And it’s a 3700 3.7, not the thick rings 3800. Like I’ve said before I couldn’t tell a difference between this saw and my 4000. The 3.7 has 150 psi and so did my 4000.

That’s good compression for a 3700. Wow! I’d love a better intake for mine plus that muff mod.
The 4000 muffler flows well and is easy to make. Cut a couple slots on the side of the muffler then heat and open up with a screwdriver. I used to drill out the diffuser holes to 3/8” and lose the spark arrestor. I’ve also notched the 3400/3800 a/c covers in a 3700 style.
