    Nice pics, I like the fall colors in the one. That is some leaf blower. Why do you need to blow the leaves off a gravel road?

    My guess would be to regrade road before winter, some of the towns around here have blowers on their 1 ton's to blow the leaves off the roads and out of the diches before winter.

    We try to keep the ditches as free of leaves as possible to prevent washouts.

    Pretty nice place to work, nedly. There's no doubt, we're pretty fortunate to live & work in these parts of the countryside, huh?

    Yeah, been through Keene Valley many times. You're a lucky man to live and make a living there...That scenery across rt. 73 is something to see, with the cascading waterfalls down over the cliffs and stuff, man what a nice area.

    I never know when I'm going to be where, until the day before I get the orders. Next time I haul something from Cat in Clifton Park up that way, I'll holler. I was just up there for something recently, can't remember for the life of me why though. I was in Bolton Landing with a 330D, and oh, I remember, North Creek with a portable screening plant to a contractor with a gravel pit up there.(Slight brain freeze.) :drinkup

    It's definitly a beautiful place to live, and to be able to work 50+ hrs a week and never leave town is a great deal. Seriously though if you are headed this way, let me know I'd love to get together and shoot the breeze:drinkup

    Steve,
    Yup, that's a JL-601 Farmi winch, it seems to be a really rugged unit. I have only had it about 2 weeks. When I bought the machine it came with a front mount snowblower, and I didnt want a front mount because they tie up the whole machine, I want to be able to use the bucket or winch/chipper... so I traded even with a guy and ran down to MA for the weekend to my sisters place and dropped off the blower and picked up the winch. I hooked up with the guy over at TBN, good ole forums!!! I have an AnBo grapple and a WR long electro hydraulic kit waiting for me at a farm machinery place nearby, I have to drop her off there for a couple days. I'll post some pics of it when I get it back. Then with the winch, the grapple and the 8" chipper she'll be ready to cut some wood this winter:thumbsup

    That leaf blower would make a great fire pile starter, too. Got a pile 'o brush you wanna touch off? Just get a little corner started, and when it's going a little, just turn that chute towards it and watch 'er take off! It's a bellows on steroids.:drinkup

    Those are some pretty hounds there. Labs are great. What is that skidder, a Tree Farmer or a Timberjack, I can't quite tell...? I'm leaning towards Timberjack, but somebody painted it and threw me off.

    I forget what the wind speed is, but I think its like 160 MPH, that much wind out of that 8" chute is an impressive machine. We worked a good share of the week blowing the roads we take care of, before this machine it was almost a month, that was with 3 or 4 guys and backpack blowers.

    Labs are definitly great, they have a blast together. Thats acutally a C-5 Tree Farmer, it has been painted to the dark green from that hidious lime green they came with. It has a 3-53 powerplant, Dad says you can hear me comin' for a long ways!!

    In all honesty I was thinking Tree Farmer, but my brain kept persuading my fingers to type Timberjack. I was thinking it was a C-6. Definitely a screamer!
