    Got a couple things accomplished this week.

    We finished the pool house and fire lane for the building.

    We also almost finished the gun range trails. We were 2 loads of granite base short and the train did not come in until Sat. Hopefully we will be able to get the last 2 loads on Mon.

    We came up with a solution to spreading the base 8 feet wide and 3 inches thick. I think it worked out real good.

    Ha! Now there's your one pass extreme box blade. What's the model number on your Towmaster?

    What is the make on that spreader? We have been doing a lot of road rocking lately and none of the truck drivers can spread to save their lives. I was thinking we could mount something like that on our skip loader. We usually do 12' wide roads.

    JNB it is a t14d. I think they build the best small tags around.

    It is an Advantage attachments snow box. We modified the skid mounts so we could adjust the height. It is built great and worked out perfectly. If we do more with it I think we will extend it out the front slope a little bit so it will hold a little more rock without spilling ooutside.

    Cool adaptive use of an attachment. Being a snow pusher how stout is it built?

    I really like the idea, my gears are turning.:D

    Are you feeding it with your wheel loader or dumping small piles out of the truck?

    As for how it is built, it is pretty heavy! I was pleasantly surprised by how well it is built. I really do not think I could bend it with a skid steer no matter what I did to it.

    We used the army truck to feed. We were at lest 3000 feet from the stockpile at certain points so we just backed the truck up and I would tell the driver what to do with the walky talky.

    The price was great and they shipped it for free as well.

    Thanks Eric! The guy did say" can I ask why you need a snow box in SC in April" and we explained it and he thought it was a neat idea.

    I've seen a small asphalt paver used for a job like that but this seems simpler. :thumbsup

    When I was a kid I remember the drag box they would attach to the back of a single axle truck to pave with.

    Got back to doing a little logging and clearing. Cut 4 acres of wood for a clearing job. 90% is pine pulp, the rest is hardwood brush. Got everything up to the deck, started loading out and the mill cut us off for the week. Started stumping on Friday and was making pretty good progress.

    Why did the mill cut you off, too much timber on their yard? Now your timber is laying on the ground drying out.:cool:

    Yes and yes. They are taking saw wood but no pulp. We need some rain to get the woods wet and slow down the loggers:rolleyes:

    The most important thing about the timber industry is the golden rule, they have the gold and they rule. You have to do what they say and take what they give.

    I have two pages with different sorts of logs to take to different mills and different grades if wood. I keep lists in my truck.
