A few pics from warmer weather !
Still finding a few jobs to do on the 977, they are slowly being ticked off the list.
Hoping to get the engine bay side screens done over the winter, I’m missing one top one and one bottom one.
Cheers Chris.

I do not need the extra and really heavy weight work but do need something as heavy. In all actuality need both a Loader and Trackhoe with a Tandem dump truck to get done what I need to do here. Allis was a good eye opener as to TOO Small even at 24k weight and yard and half bucket, SA GM five yard was just PAINFULLY Slow as well as to capacity and operation. 12-16yd, truck, tractor capable of 2.5-3yd loading, excavator with enough weight and reach to take out the dead or thorned trees. Dreams of a Old Guy that cannot attain.

Looking really good Chris.
