That guy has a sweet setup. That's the grapple(Towtem), it's even from out by you.

I forgot Towtem is from the great PNW. A lot of guys use these grapples if they do a lot of rock work. Every now and then I see one like this but most of them are free swinging grapples but that's because the hoe is dedicated only to rockeries etc.

Coopers, this is just for you. I was going to grab some more pictures but was time challenged as I had to pick up the 550. Managed to deliver 4 loads of black dirt and a big mulch delivery tonight(in the dark).

Stuve-

Much better! :-D That's a great shot. Website worthy IMO. She looks nice and shiny.

I have to get graphics on it soon. I got to do some quick brush removal today before I left. I get to redo the other boulder wall on the other side that the builder did now so I'm happy.

You know that Earth First guy?

That is a great looking building Stuve. Looks like you knew what you wanted in a building when you planned it out. It's always nice to see something overbuilt so you have room to breathe and grow if necessary.

So how about some pictures of the F-550 if it's done and on the road?

Stuve,

I do not know the contractor. I see him running around every now and then but have never talked to him.

Here is some finished pictures of the boulder project and one of the 550 setup with the hydroseeder. Loving the 550 but the fuel mileage is killing me, like 8 mpg. The weather sucks, would like it to dry up some so we could get something done.
