    How's the driving record for that driver?

    You might need to check with the motor vehicle department to check on that young mans record........looks a smite bit young, but he does look eager to get haulin'......

    Thanks for the great pictures........I love the old Iron.....the men that ran those old beasts had to be real men.....Thanks again

    What I like most about the old iron is how we "laded waste"
    to the forest and look at it now . Rich, diverse and green with the patina of old equipment sprinkled among it. Suck on that Greenpeace.

    Can't remember the name of these, Osa's I think. They were working in the late 80's. Now the poplar trees are growing up through them. Bunchers{1}.jpg Bunchers{2}.jpg
