I've been down that road before, the mini machines are sooooo much easier to work on when packing the seals!

Chris does have somewhat of a life other than lawnsite


So what have I been doing

well oneday I started to change the sprockets out on the skid steer as they had wore to the point where theey could start ripping the luggs out as they had a hooked wear shape to them. tracks still have plenty of life left in them. the sprockets were 1/32" too small so i had to take them back so they could spin then down a little.





then I did a little pond shoreline cleanup






















So today I got covered in oil and grease yet again putting the top cylinder back on the daewoo. I have not been this dirty in a couple years I need to go scrape the grease out from under the fingernails before I go out tonight

So today I got around, did a little stump removal job this morning with the yanmar, only took one picture of it before and forgot to take pics afterwards so oh well on that one lol



yep I am finally back at home, I've got my steel toe shoes on and my protective pants.... just the way i like it



I did some much needed cleaning on the two big excavators this afternoon, volvos clean again. I used the rednack war wash method that you will see on youtube later






Then I got up on it, power washed and degreased the dirty daewoo (sounds dirty lol)
