The doctor must have lots of money to own lots of nice acreage like that, it looks nice and quiet.

Hahaha- I was wondering when someone was going to notice your "fleet" of listed equipment in your signature The weiner mobile as a crew truck is my favorite next to the Letourneau loader

Seriously though, that bank in the last pic looks beautiful! Nice work!

I'm shut down with the mini for repairs, but we're busy oiling roads anyway. We're repairing a hyd leak that came with the machine, at the input shaft . My mechanic gave me a list of things to order prior to teardown so we wouldn't be down long...when he got into it he noted that the main coupler was cracked in two places so I've been waiting for this part to arrive, 4 days past due. Today he called to let me know that he found that all four engine mounts were broken...wait some more. I never noticed that the engine had any amount of play in it, we only noted that the exhaust shook quite a bit. Why this mini was such a good deal may be coming to light, we'll see. Any good explanations as to why all four are broken?

I'am surprised that you have that many problems Kubota is known to be a good problem free machine.

Not sure why all 4 engine mounts would be broken is there any stress cracks anywhere else. Maybe the house is twisting, with the motor mounted on 4 points as the machine twists it is pulling on the motor mounts.

Sucks to hear about the brake downs.

I finally took some better videos of our oil spreading work. (in my opinion) I've only got one loaded now but will add more soon. These are of my dad and I working together on the streets of Breese, IL. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzgfXbK1M6c

I made it back over to the good doctor's on Saturday for some more clearing. I packed the Big Red along since I was getting farther away from truck, so that I didn't have to walk out the excavator for lunch/fuel/etc.


I trimmed the middle dam and the lower pond.
A view from the middle pond dam looking down the lower pond and boat house.


Access road between the two ponds.


The lower pond.


The lower pond overflow/turnaround after some cleaning.

Those old trikes are legendary, all those deaths and accidents from the good old days.

I didn't realize that my oiliing link was the wrong one. This video is probably the most interesting, with me doing some fancy driving in a cul de sac. Comments are welcome.
