    Well, went back to work today, went to install an irrigation system that has hardly any PSI, goin to work till Thursday on this job, then got that clearing job of my own to knock out and he said he'd pay me overtime to come run the tractor saturday(cant use the skidsteer, its a residential yard with alot of turning) hauling sand filling in old planters around a pool..

    So, here's what I did all day, run this ancient piece...

    (like my new style? :cool2: :laugh:)

    well, this day just plain started out bad, we get to Bobcat, go in do the paperwork bs, come out, throw the bush hog on the trailer, then go to get the grapple and bucket and there is no bucket, so I just go ahead and attempt to hook up the hydraulics and some idiot wrapped the hose around the little guard holder thingy mabobber, well I get the rental guy, Doug, to go get a bucket and I run down to where he is and he just says, run in the shop, we'll zip tie the line together so they dont rub the track and you'll be good..

    We finally get out of there at 8:30 and get to the job at 9, I unload the 190, go drop the bucket and drop down in this swamp and I feel the tracks kind of spin but think nothing of it, so I push in to the brush and grab a bite, back back out and dump and go back in and tell dad its muddier than hell back in there, I dont wanna go back, but he insists I can get through one more time, well, this happens...


    so by the time I get done trying to get out I hand it over to the real professional..

    so we get it and look how far up the mud was:

    btw, I think I need a bigger trailer.. :dizzy: :laugh:

    I'll get pics of all the stuff I got done today, in the morning..

    That grapple looks a little woppyjawed... I'm surprised that bobcat had enough power to do that much damage...

    Need some 36" mud tracks like the volvo, you'd be good to go then:laugh:

    Of course it's about toast. It's a Bobcat.
