Feels like I have not stopped all day...

So this morning I picked up the volvo from the pool job my other helpers dug for me yesterday.





Then after seeing all of ARP's powerline clean up jobs I decided to go do one myself!

So after years and years of people dumping brush on the right of way it has to be cleaned up and hauled away... I bet he wishes he had a volvo lol....
All brush will be loaded up on the tractor trailer on monday.





Even brought the takkie in to show you how its done






Here's a video showing the takkie pushing some big brush piles!

Hey! That kind of pool looks familar! My favorite! Anyways, I couldnt believe they would bring in that big of a machine to dig a pool, but most the time on ours we can barely get the backhoe in with out some modifications to the property.

I was just starting to load the last load with the volvo when she blew. lots of hydro fluid all over the place, what a freakin mess! so needless to say it takes a long time to load the tractor trailer with the mini!

Nope I dug them all up, threw them on the trailer, drove it a half mine and scraped them off with the volvo! then hauled them off with the brush!
