Off the subject and I know everyone is on the kill the Yew kick but that shrub in the first pic is gorgeous and well-maintained. The folks just hatin' on them or is it because they get too broad?

If they are well trimmed you could sell 4 footers up here for 300 bucks

Yes, people are pretty much hating on yews. They are basically the landscaping equivalent to aluminum siding. Ok, not that bad.

Lol. well I don't have any siding at all, not of my own anyway. So I shouldn't talk. I spend all my money on this business.

I like the yew you were talking about, it was very well trimmed over it's life I must say. The customer wanted to plant some newer smaller plants there so thats why we took it out. I don't hate yews, we just normaly dont't plant many anymore. I do think they have there place in the landscape however, I deffinatly can appreciate the natural look of the yew, especially if we prune them lightly and keep them looking more wild

Update so far, the dealer got my machine in the shop today, and my warranty is out but, the main service tech has been looking into the situation and was surprised I broke the cylinder so he looked more into it and found that there has been many cases with my machine of guys braking the 32mm cylinders, so they actually recomend replacing them with 36mm cylinders so he thinks maybe deere will help me out possibly, keeping my fingers crossed I miss our skid it's amazing how much you need them when they are down.

Since we didn't have our skid around today we rented a 32mini x to tear out some shrubs, what a blast, hope to have a mini someday.

You might want to seriously consider the stick hoe attachment for his little track machine. They are invaluable and cheap to maintain too. I can dig just about as fast as a mini-x, digs 7' deep. Bring one machine to the job. I use mine for all sorts of things. Couldn't live without it.



Took ten minutes or so to get these trees out of the ground:





Even works on this old 30" soft maple (was 9' across):





Just don't buy a cheapie...you'll regret it! I found the Lackender Baby Boomer to be the best w/ a 5/8" thick backing plate....very tough!
