Jr those redi slab lightweight pre fab units work great and are cheap.



I think I paid 26$ for the one under my AC

GLO officially has a new home, locked that contract in this morning.

Also finalized having a new home built this morning, so will be moving in to that in seven months roughly.

Unretired, sweeping floor at GLO once again & making coffee.

Another security joke. Went to high school football game with an all metal automatic knife in my pocket. They wanded me and found my truck remote but not the knife

Well, I don?t know about all new furniture but we definitely do not have enough currently. New place will be almost 5k sq ft and we?re under 2500k now.....

Home 3 car garage will be just that a garage to store vehicles. One of the storage rooms in basement will be a small home workshop with minimal tools, table saw and radial arm saw storage. Throw in a decent work bench and I?m golden there. Shop will house everything else, keeping me focused on separate things at each place. Degrees of separation maybe?

I did measure it this morning, new house is less than 4 miles from my shop.

Sounds a lot like my home

Basement is partially finished, but also has a storage/workout room a mechanical room and a 25 X 25 wood shop

We have 5320 ft2 not counting those rooms or either garage. a bit over 7,500 counting all that.

I'll tell you from experience. It is more than a little chore keeping all of that clean!

Be careful what you wish for!

I wanted 3500 sq ft, which is what is was not counting basement. Builder is throwing finished basement in for using their mortgage guy & closing insurance.

Charles, when we went to Cheyenne frontier days they did not wand us to get into fair grounds during day. Hour before concert started they decided to start wanding people, at the front gate. I could have legally been in the concert easily armed. When they started wanding they referenced Vegas, the security was a joke......

Sold my tractor. Shortly after I brought it home, my wife told me that I should have gotten a bigger one. Then after we had a guy come in and do some dirt work with a compact track loader, she said I should buy one. So today I sold the John Deere. I got basically what I had in it and got several months work out of it.

I?ll take some time to decide what I want and what I can afford. We?ll see.

Dave, we need to talk
I'd suggest we meet down at the farm
There I have the 30HP tractor, a 66HP tractor and of course the 96HP compact track loader
Try out each one and decide
Personally, if you are developing property, taking it from a wild state to a more refined one, then the CTL is definitely the way to roll (Get it, "way to roll")
But if your property is already well developed and you don't need to dig foundations, put in roads, clear paths through the woods and things like that, then a larger wheeled tractor is the way to go.
No doubt, a CTL is more fun BY FAR (I MEAN THE ULTIMATE BIG KIDS TOY) but does damage the grass some.
You can rent CTL's for around $200 ish a day I think.
But if you decide to buy one, I think I can weigh in here
Cat makes pretty good equipment, but their big CTL the 299D has a small cabin and spends more time broken down than the Kubota. The John Deere 333 or 323 is too costly. You even have to pay extra for wide tracks, not so with the Kubota
I looked at the industrial models and most of them are pretty costly, but the dealership network gets much smaller
There is no doubt, that considering all factors, putting shear ruggedness at the top of the list, the Kubota is king of the hill
You may well get away with a SVL-75 instead. A very capable machine at 75 HP, it has high and low flow and a good amount of oomph! Take a look at that one too.
Now finding used is problematic. People generally hold onto these things. the ones you find will have one two or three thousand hours on them. Having been run for 1,500 hours a year they have been "Rode hard and put away wet." Then the dealers all want to charge premium dollars for their "Lady driven" units. After looking at many units which were all torn up, I threw in the towel and bought a brand new one. I will own it my entire life and it will always be able to move mountains to wherever I need them to be.
Kubota offers 0% financing on them from time to time and that is how I bought mine. Use their money for 4-5 years, suck it up and always have the capability and potential that one of these machines affords

It is a 3/8" thick rolled steel ring that is angled in at about 20% so there is a gap between it and the block. Then just added some sand in the bottom to build it up a little.

Lots of wheel spinning today, but did get this picture taken. View facing west from our new house lot. Would have snapped it from street however there is a huge pile of dirt sitting on the lot at the moment. Sorry, it?s been overscast here the last couple of days. Regardless, we should have a nice view of Long?s peak to the right a bit and the flat irons to the left a little.

Relaxing out at the cabin finally.
Been a long few weeks, still haven?t physically come home from Australia. Been on nights since I got home. So jet lag/whatever the heck it will be now for me...

Tired as all get out and not happy with it all but life goes on.

Looking out the window at the snow showers and glad to see winter is coming back.
Nothing accumulating yet but looks like it could be a long winter.

I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

I did a few things today. I picked up what tile was missing from my original order for the floor of my master shower

I find my next work mug

The wife says it might be a problem for me to carry a 32 oz crown n coke around and I needed a smaller glass so I?ll be purchasing one of these here soon also

Ordered a pair of new work boots because happy feet right?
Thorogood claims to have American made boots. The fit and feel seem far better than the redwings (admittedly made overseas), Danners were not available to try on. I gave these Thorogood boots a good once over and I will fill in later

Almost finished with the roof on the garage. My demo crew consisted of 7 of my kids, age range from 3-15. The roofing crew was me and my two oldest boys, 13 and 14. Looking good so far. Just need to trim the last sheet of roofing for width and put the trim on and finish the rest of the screws in the field.

Speaking of John Deere quality, I got a call from my dealership. They said a rock became lodged inside the belt and pulley system (Which by the way is covered by a steel cover designed, presumably, by the engineers.

lucky me, I get to pay $398 for the belt change!

Problem is, I like this size unit, and I have paid a lot into it, and trading it would just give some lucky bloke a great tractor at my expense. So I am stuck with it it seems

Maybe I'll try and sell it myself and then buy a right sized Kubota or Kioti tractor...???

Don, I?ll gladly take you up on this offer. I?d love to be able to compare/contrast the different machines.  I?ve run bigger tractors before, but mainly for bush hogging, and rented bobcats before, but the wheeled variant.  I?m just worried your going to make me ride the whole way to the hide site blindfolded and trussed up in the back of the truck.  ;)

I?d love to be able to compare/contrast the different machines.  I?ve run bigger tractors before, but mainly for bush hogging, and rented bobcats before, but the wheeled variant.  I?m just worried your going to make me ride the whole way to the hide site blindfolded and trussed up in the back of the truck.  ;)

It?ll give me flashbacks to my first date with my wife.  What can I say, I was apparently quite the catch.

What was your source for the ring?


Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
TRN. I found it local up here via Craigslist. Picked it up at a guys house that had 5 or 6 sitting around. I don?t think I paid over $150 for it. It is about 5 feet across. Honestly too big unless you have a huge fire.

Nice crew there, got it done!

Is that fire warming the Kabota?
Yeah the Kubota was watching. I had a lot of scrap wood next to the garage that I cut up and got cleaned up. Used the loader to haul it to the back yard a fire pit.

At least it isn?t a JD - probably would have melted if Don?s experience is anything to go from.

The Kubota is mostly metal.

Texasredneck:

swept out the casita from the sheetrock debris.  Started cleaning up in the shop.  Made breakfast for the family, pancakes, bacon, eggs.  Bible study, blew off all the porches and pool area, mowed the berm by the pond successfully (no mower in the pond), estimated the board footage for the trim for the casita - it will be custom rough sawn to match the main house.  Cut a piece of 2 inch angle to make a drip edge for the seacan door.

About to go finish running the structured wiring to the seacan - drill a hole and glue the pull box to the end of the conduit and fish the wires.  then I may install some can lights in the girls room in the main house.  Ceiling fan lights are not bright enough.

You know, I always thought a rope and a light pole would be easiest. The stoning thing is a bit middle eastern for my taste. I guess in the end whatever it takes to rid this world of your gf I?d be ok with.... :popcorn:
