Thanks Junior- I complete every job to the best of my abilities. I like to think of my work as my calling card.

In terms of that stump, it was a 24" Oak stump. I suggested removing it to the homeowners but they wanted it left behind. So as the contractor, I deferred to the homeowners' judgement as the stump presented no safety threat.

Don't worry, that's what I thought as well. Luckily, the stump can't be seen from the street as the rock wall hides it. And the grass kinda of hides it now as well. Gotta do what the customer wants.

Here for the price of a Grant someone would grind that stump up so they don't have to mow around it.

Nice pictures APR! The grading job looks good too. Did you add soil or till it?

Thanks, it was a mix of both adding soil and tilling it and then hydroseeding it. While the job turned out fine, if I were to do it again, I would have added some limestone earlier to the soil to knock down the acidity of the soil (a lot of moss in areas) and get an even greener lawn, faster. That way I could have saved on trucking in new soil.

Live and learn, right?

My machine has been on since new with no problems, running different attachments. It has 480 hours with no problems.
For digging and using a tree shear in bumpy terrain. I find it annoying trying to dig or do a driveway when the loader arms are moving up and down

I have found the same thing. I really like having it on a trigger. The newer CASE machines have it on an on and off switch off of the control handle. Have not run it yet but I would have prefered if they would have left that alone. Don't have to get off the machine to change it but I am on and off the ride control a lot and stopping to turn it on and off even on the dash is a step backward I think.
