So instead of adopting a redneck for the day you adopted a Mexican for the day. What did you go to home depot to pick them up instead of walmart LoL
I have had the chance to work with a few of those day laborers and they sure can work fast and efficient not to mention cheap.

Those pics of you cutting the tree up in the water should have 'do not try this at home' written on the bottom lol.. no ear protection, no eye protection, no chaps/leg protection, and cutting out on tree that could collapse down into the water taking you and your saw with it.. oh well you're alive so that's what matters but I'd never let one of my guys near a saw again if I saw them doing it that way.

pond is draining down




so today I was told to just cut any line that was in my way... so I dug with a smile With more stuff unmarked than marked, the cable guys said, chop it, we need something to do tomorrow... thats all I needed to hear.


whoops number 1


big whoops number 2, then main lines




we continue on Progress





All done






and now I'm ready to sit my ass on a machine in the A/C all day

It has a 5' box blade on the back, I think the loader bucket is a few inches smaller. Its a 30 hp. I've been on a bunch of different tractors, this is the only one I would ever consider.
