Trust me, my old man is done with skid steers, especially Bobcat, he's owned a 310, 410, 440B, 753 and a 943, he hates Bobcat's (even more than I do, go figure) and he really doesn't feel like running my Cat unless it's just some minor leveling.

Oh, I just assumed that 753 used on that job you had the "retirement statement" and the zx27 on was your dads, but apparently it wasnt, so whose was it?

Nope, any Bobcat pictured in any of my pics are not mine, even if I rent a skid steer, it's going to be a Cat. If I can steal a scanner away from a relative, there will be some old Bobcat and JD 350 track loader pics, but that's another photo album.
All I own is anything related to the skid steer and truck and trailer, the rest I kinda "rent" from my Dad's business. (it's complicated to explain the "rent")

I wish I had a scanner, I could show you some of the old man's work and all the equipment he had setting around..

Get used to having cabin fever because this rotten rain isn't going away.

You will probably see people put off projects till next spring anyways to cut back on the spending before X-mas.
