    I had a customer w/a shop that worked on all ages of tractors and was impressive to see some of the iron in there!
    Another one that sold giant, new track tractors.

    I fabricated one of those pump assemblies and tank for the airport. They use it to spray grass and weed killer. It's put in the bed of a small dump truck and they spray it from the passenger seat.

    That is great!!! Forks are like a sore peter... Hard to beat!

    I will say be careful with that bucket/forks/loader. When you get a heavy load and get it up high, things can go wrong really quick!!! I picked up a disk gang and frame yesterday. For some reason part of it, which was cut off with a torch, stayed on. I said F' it and proceeded to put it on the trailer. When I lifted it to clear the trailer, I was backing up turning at the same time...Going really slow... In soft uneven ground... The left rear tire left the ground as the front end swiveled... I thought I was on my side at first. Felt like the tire came off the ground about 3 feet (I know it was 2 at the most) and I dropped the loader to the ground as fast as I could. Made some racket and shook everything, but okay.

    I am sure you have kited a tunnel... It kind of feels like that almost. LOL!!! Not trying to me a know it all or telling you what to do, just be careful and wear your seat belt when doing stuff like that.
    I may have been born at night, but it wasn't last night.

    Seat belt ��

    Been there, done that.

    Had a bucket full of dirt and only way to keep it full is to raise it high enough to become level.
    Was driving too fast, and turning, all while crossing a low rut in the yard.
    Was on two wheels and thought for sure the weight of the raised bucket was taking me over.
    Luckily it didn’t but......., only done that once ��
