    That one is sharp looking as a convertible but it make me nervous there been so many times that im backing up and go over a tree trunk or part of stump and that backend is going up and then it finaly tilts over and slams down im just glad I got that 3in box steel around me and several grab points or OH Sh$T handles. The other day I dragged a 16ftx 30ft morgan storage building up a incline and then about 1/4 mile to its new home it was on skids so just a tad over 1/2 power and off we went

    I agree, but I bought it this way and mostly use it for pushing snow, blading my road and pasture cleanup so pretty easy, smooth conditions, lots of work around here needs to be done before I build a top, I have a 337 Bobcat Excavator that I use for all my firewood production and work in the woods.

    That's very nice work. Your road looks a lot like mine. I just noticed you live on Orcas. My daughter has an old friend on Orcas. Her name is Amy is all I remember. Would be a little younger than you. Daughter Janet is now in Portland.

    getting finishing touches on my root rake for the front blade 1in plate for sides and teeth, 1/2in square tubing with 1/2 plate welded under the bottom square tube, teeth will be 6in below the bottom of the blade, should be good enough to rip the roots out of the typical brush and trees here in south texas, I have no problems with most mesquite unless their really big most just crack off right at the base, its the pesky smaller brush that seems to go under the blade, going to have it set up so I can flip it up with a boat wench when I don't need it.
