I forgot how awesome that autocar is. Looks like you had some fun cleaning up the ditches. The excavator rake still working good for you?

Yea, the truck grows on me as time goes on. I thought it was kinda ugly at first.

I really like that rake. Works very well and has proven to be a good design. Wish the teeth were about 2 inches further spaced apart. 10 inch centers can be an issue when it gets wet.

Love the farm pics, it us refreshing. Did you ever get the rake for the dozer finished? Never saw completed pics of it - probably just missed it though.

Thanks for the comment.

Yes the rake is finished. Still needs some tinkering. I want to weld shanks and put rock teeth on the tips angled forward at about a 45 to give a bit more depth and get the "rolling" action going easier.

Position? Farms don't really have positions. I guess I would be considered a foreman.

Ok sorry, not what I meant. What are you paid to be there for? What do you do on a typical day?

Ugh, think of any job conceivable to be done on a cash crop beef feedlot farm and I do it.

Today I fed cattle, put corn up, loaded trucks, fixed a motor, went and bought 3 belts, fixed a semi, bed down a barn and supervised the rest of the guys. Yesterday I was at a conference all day. The day before I ran an excavator and loaded trucks with corn. Different every day.

Sounds like you get something different every day. Sure must never get boring, always something to do sounds like.
