    I pulled my dock out of the river for the winter today. There was a 1/4" skim of ice still on it at around 2 this afternoon. 20191109_140717.jpg

    Seem's like I just put it in yesterday. Time sure does fly!

    That's a nice contraption on the loader. Guessing you need decent ballast picking something heavy up way out front.

    Got some splitting done this weekend! Let the Kubota do the lifting! I think the forks work better than the bucket for these big rounds.

    It will do it bareback, but I had a twin spindle 8' bush hog hanging on the back in the pic. That contraption on there is primarily for the skid steer, but it won't clear the 18" tall stump that's in the the middle of the only way in. It will reach up to 28', great (on level ground) for trusses on a pole building, and makes a dandy rope swing at the pond.:D

    Gonna be doing some work up high?


    Nice setup. The piece coming down from the front of the canopy is for more protection from snow & rain?

    Yah the roof does a pretty good job keeping the snow off you when plowing.

    Nice view from up high! Sounds like a good idea keeping the snow out a bit more. I may do the same sometime.

    I brought some wood up for the indoor wood rack.

    Resized952019110995105831959969.jpg We were using the FIL's RTV to help reload the wife's uncle's woodshed.

    Also a big Deere, but beggers can't be choosers. And, this bucket is huge.
