Ha! We barely get to ride as it is. Got the demo 9 for cheap, only reason we even have downhill bikes. Need to live closer to some mountains!

I still have old blue! Had a new motor put in, doesn't see much use, less than 10k miles since I bought it from you guys. Will be back at it this winter, it's my salt truck!

Here are pics of the 6.5" tree I mentioned earlier. 'Ovation' London Planetree.

Here it is in the field as we were tagging it


This is where it is going. There was a honeylocust here that we had removed. Used this machine to remove some stump/roots that were left behind.


Scooping out the hole



Delivery day. 16 trees (all 3"+ caliper), shrubs and and pickup full of perennials from the same nursery, via flatbed semi. Didn't get a chance to snap a pic of the semi, too busy unloading.

Skytrak wouldn't quite boom out far enough for these inner trees, and didn't want to rut the turf. Fortunately the Kubota had just enough oomph to pick these up.
