Got a dusting this morning LOL! Other than that no, and looking at the long range we might get some the end of next week. But that's only a chance...

Ah Okay, that makes sense. Kinda hard to tell the size of the project from the photos.

Thanks Bigirish- we work hard to present a first class appearance and do great work for our customers.

Muddywater- we do both, but for most projects land clearing projects like you see here it is typically by the hour.

Chris- Nah, I like the new ;-) A few sticks have scratched the machine as I walk down some overgrown roads, but they don't scratch the machine on the way out ;-)

And yes, the thumb works great with the head spinning or stopped. It was a major reason why we went with this head over others actually.

Coopers- ya, it is hard to tell by the size of the pics, but I cleared about 1/2-3/4 an acre in that time frame of those size trees. Out here, a logging crew running a feller buncher, skidder, and a ground guy will clear about an acre a day so I'm happy with my production with the machine.

And ya, she is a pretty machine :-)
