Did you get the quad back yet? will you move the 210 on the new trailer?

That clearing job around the house made such a huge difference, looks great!

thanks!

truck is still being repaired, the wrist pin broke on #1 cylinder. didn't hurt the block but its getting a full rebuild.

should be done end of next week.

the 210 will not be hauled on the trailer. weighing in at 50K lbs it will be pretty heavy for the tag trailer and that sits a lot higher than a lowboy

started hauling mud off today on the pond side of the lake. had the yanmar out there throwing mud back for me to reach, even sitting on a 4x16' mats it was sinking good. it was some wet stuff.

had the 160 delivered so I could cut a ditch down the dock side of the lake to get the creek out of my way.

Wet! How far do you have to go to dump? The 160 seems to be a good addition to the fleet, how is the balance in it compared to the others?

yesterday we had a 1:20 turn around to the dump and I only had 3 trucks. we changed dump sites today and had 6 trucks running with a 60 minute turn around ( 12 miles).

I was very busy considering I was loading with the 210 then id jump on the 160 in the few minutes between truck and swing more mud up to be loaded out.

Have you tried using clean out buckets? Or is it too heavy for your machines
