Well today was neat, I finished cutting one larger commercial after being rained out, then I did a mulch job at my church, where I do the maintenance. But we had a good crowd come out, more than 50 who volunteered, and we had the skid steer and the mini skid moving mulch (30 yards) and did a clean-up, leaves, weeding, trimming some trees and doing some lot maintenance.

So I got to use the new skid finally and its awesome, I was using the foot controls because the pilots were tough to get used to. So when I build a track for the atv's at my house I'll try to use the other controls to get a hang of it.

So a good day overall, sorry I never snapped any pics!

No, no other attachments for the Bobcat. I am looking into some pallet forks to move around skids of salt in the winter. A brush hog is something I'm interested in getting into, but I need an "in" to some of that work.

We burned the brush pile yesterday and it was getting pretty crazy, we bought a permit to burn it, but they didn't sell one big enough for our pile so we got the biggest one, which was like 10x10 feet or something like that. They'd only sell it if we had some type of machine to dump dirt on it if it got out of control (skid steer) My dad was ready to call the fire dept. though, just in case. I should have gotten pictures when it was at its highest. From now on, the brush stays farther away from the forest.
