    Well my project made it to its new home at 10,000 feet and is running great. Radiator started leaking badly so I ordered a new one and put it in. All is good. Had an outdoor storage cover made which arrived yesterday. At $450 it was pricey but worth keeping the investment covered especially with the chain cases cover issues. My favorite attachment is ther grapple bucket. It is simply AWESOME for trees! I have put about 25 hours on it so fast and all is good!

    Looks right at home playing in the dirt! Notice any loss of power at that altitude?

    What are the circles for, foundation for silos or such? Like hammock for "break time!"

    There is a loss of power but not bad. The circles are patios being poured Friday morning. 16' each with a fire pit in the center of one and a gazebo going on the other. The hammock is behind then lol!

    Is this for a private house up in the mountains? Guessing from the 10,000 feet altitude there are some nice views!

    It is private. My get away from the city! Elk, deer, moose, mountain lions and mountain goats are my friends there. This get away is why I rebuilt the 1845C. I am building my sanctuary in the woods. So beautiful up there!

    That is a fantastic job of getting ready for the concrete pour!

    Thanks! They turned out great and I needed the skidsteer to haul the concrete to the fire pit patio so it worked out well. The machine is running like a champ! Bought an outdoor concert for it which is nice.
