    We have plow set-ups for all of our tractors and loaders. We have been using them plenty, especially last week.

    I have been trying to. It has been really hard. All you see is lights at night by the time daylight comes round I am usually tired and in a bad mood.

    I thought the same thing when he brought it home. But all we use it for is loading salt trucks. It is made by the same company as our new Case 321D. They both seem like nice machines to run. I don't like them as much as our Deere's, but then again I don't write the checks.:)

    We just rented the NH loader it was a little 170B. It had 400hrs the AC didn't work and the seat broke on me and I only weight 145lbs. Its wasn't a POS, but it sure ain't no Deere or Cat.

    new hollands

    i must say i am jaded with the new hollands. i had a pair of nh lx885's and boy did they take alot of work. the newer one we could never get a bug out of it in the electrical system. it would shut down. then you do the key, seat belt trick and it would run for awhile. finally i sold em both- only two machines i ever got rid of.

    I agree about the New Holland's. That loader should get by just fine. All it has to do is load our salt trucks.

    Our salt is crystalized. It looks just like the water softer salt you buy in bags. I'll try to get some pics. The last couple times we salted I left the house in a hurry and forget my phone.

    A few pics from work.

    1) A pic of a '25 Spoker D with electric start.:)

    2)We were doing some guide wall removal with the drillers working the background.

    3)They were backfilling one of the tunnels and I snapped a pic as I tracked by.

    4,5) You got to like working right next to freeway traffic.

    They are for traffic. There will be four tunnels altogether the surface bridges are getting razed. The drilling crew is drilling caissons for the walls. I think I'm going to be digging out one of the tunnels soon.

    Is that 330 the one you are running (I'm gonna guess not, cause I don't see a quick coupler in the "in cab shots" but I may be wrong)?
