TLB's, a few of them.



Then the big toys.





Deere 892 with an old school CWS Forestry cab (rare, rare):




Good idea for grabbing force on your thumb, segments of sprockets, works good on the back heels of the bucket:





A true Deere roadbuilder, god I love these ones:





Spot the issue with this cotton spun Samsung:

Hey ron what did that sucken 200 go for. I missed it. I wondered if you were going to the auction, I meant to PM you to ask. Probably saw you there.

Sat in that old 892/CWS cab, I giggled the whole time

That old Madill Swing yarder belongs to a familly friend that machine didn't look like that before it has around 7 grand worth of Ritchie Bros paint on it. The machine is too small you can't yard enough with it was replaced with a Cypress yarder 1.5 sizes bigger. To move that 122 down the road you have to take the boom and gantry off. Then tilt the cab down after that the machine is barely legal weight on a lowbed.

Lots of other old junk I recognized there is no work for it that is why its been put in the auction.
