Those are some nice rocks. I did a job once and had to order a tractor trailer load of those round rocks at a price of $140.00 a ton

For that price I could ship them to you. Maybe a train carload?

They would be perfect for riprap here, all I need is that baby barge setup and no island would be safe.

Got the track on yesterday and scraped/graded everything and today hauled in the last of it, 66 loads total. If I have more time I still have at least a third of the way to go on the one fence row. It will depend if the farmer tills or plants this week, hoping he's busy somewhere else. It was cool, the one spot had real rich dirt and was pretty clean so it doesn't even need screening.

No new progress pictures on the shop. Maybe in a month or two, spending everything right now to get rolling. I hope the upfitter has my 550 done, have been dead in the water waiting for it.

Rock, it's funny but those prices are real close to here.

Oh yeah. I used the Mustang and while it got the job done the 440 was so much more comfortable to me and I thought that extra power helped. If there was no such thing as Case I could get stuff done with the Mustang and would likely be happy but not pig-in-the-mud-happy as with the 440.

Have been playing with boulders yesterday and today, I so want a grapple. All the rocks are from the property or from the neighbors farm so it has been nice to pick through the piles. I'm figuring out the thumb and placing but the swing boom has been sweet. I found a rock that the 440 barely could lift and the Takkie can pick up some crazy big rocks.
