any TV lately (except when on the treadmill during inclement weather)
and I can't get interested in reading anything but the newspaper yet.

But I am starting to get back to the shop once in a while.

Next project: make a steel plate, drill some holes in it and weld it
to a receiver tube insert. A Harbor Freight winch will bolt to the
plate. Kevin has a whole bunch of pesky shrubs he wants to pull and
thought this might be an easy way to do it.


I just did that exact thing! It works well, but the little HF 3k#
winches aren't quite up to snuff. Then again, I was trying to tilt
apple trees out of the ground.


Everybody should have a backhoe. I get it if it looks like more than
three shovel fulls of dirt.

I have a Yanmar mini excavator and an ancient Fordson Major tractor
with FEL.

In March we had a thunderstorm and an 18" diameter Marri was
struck and killed by lightning. Part was shattered and ended up in
the next 2 neighbours yards, up to 100 yards away.

My son & I dug around the roots to about 3 feet, tied a rope
about 30 feet up to my Patrol's towhitch, put it in low range and also
pushed with the tractor as well, down it came, cut up with the
chainsaw, moved in the bucket and now there is just a smooth patch of
bare soil until we get some rain and grass grows.

I agree, everyone needs power shovels.

them!
