Last few for now.

Here's a quick, 4 hr grading job we did locally early in the year. Wouldn't have been able to do this job any near as quickly if I didn't have the T320

The liquid mulching unit and grinder are performing as well if not better than expected so far. As long as I don't stuff metal cutting edges, bolts, rails or 24" logs through the grinder it comes out quickly the other side of the grinder chamber in chips

Just think that four hour job would have been done in two hours if you had PowerTan! My other snarky comment will be, when is the hydroseeding division coming?

Looks good and nice to hear the grinder is doing okay.

Nice Stuve- I come back from hiding and get whacked with the Powertan "gospel" right away. Typical

In all seriousness, I actually sat in a couple new Case machines at our closest dealer (about an hr away) the other day. Comfy cabs, but man, what is up with the window frame on the lower right hand side blocking the view to the right half of the cutting edge? Could be dangerous with all that power and no way to see where you're directing it LOL.

And the hydroseeding division will start if we ever get enough demand for it (or unless you want to give me a reaalllly early b-day gift of a hydroseeder)

I haven't spent enough time in a new machine so will have to get back to you on the visibility thing...

There really hasn't been any demand for hydroseeding here either and the stuff that I did, it looks like it all died with the high humidity and heat. Really profitable division for me...
