Cabin Fever sucks

GRRRRRRRRRR, being bored is no fun, so I woke up to a nice sunny day, popped some goofy pills and got busy. Mediocre jobs are so much more fun with compact equipment at your disposal!

There's some leaf clean up, a little mini excavator action, skid steer dumping hopper action and some minor mulching action.

Cabin fever? For real. I'm ready for snow, I've been through my orientation and paperwork process for the winter gig. Hopefully we get slammed with snow in the next couple weeks.

That hopper holds 3.5 cubic meters (4.5 cubic yards) according to the decal on the back, I've used it for demo work, bulk material and even pouring concrete inside of a chicken barn, it's a lot of fun to use, but only on dry packed surfaces, I was in wet sloppy hog fuel last year and I ended up bucket carrying it all.
That is my Dad's flail mower, I pay for all the repairs and modifications I do to it, but he retains ownership of it, that POS gave us so many problems the first month we had it, Dad ended up putting a case drain line on the motor to prevent the seals from blowing out, and I need to make sure I run it for at least 20 minutes every month to keep the seals from hardening.
This is something I do every year, depending on how much my mom cuts back the bushes and plants in the gardens and how much leaves fall, I've done piles 3 times larger than that, plus I yanked out 2 Bermuda grass plants that were 3 years old, that was fun, fun, fun, fun.
In a month's time I will re-mulch that pile and spread it over some bare soil for next year's lawn.
