    What power?! If it got any smaller I could used the little dakota to move it! :laugh:

    I was balls to the wall the entire time though. I mean pushing the hell out of that sticky red clay. Hell I had some dirt in the cab from pushing into the piles so hard. :laugh:

    And I was tracking fullbore about 75yards with a full bucket..


    But damn, 17gallons! the amount of time didnt bother me, it was the amount of fuel used!

    Check out all my new toys! got them at quite a steal!

    I picked up a 4n1, in pretty great shape other than cutting edge and teeth.

    a Bobcat solid bottom grapple and a solesbee root grapple. Also got two more sets of forks.. One of them being Caterpillars.

    Wanna take a guess on how much? I bought the grapples and forks all together. Bought the 4n1 from Flint John Deere of Columbia.

    some of yall had asked for pictures of my fuel tank set up.. Its a 36gallon tank, its just straight up and down and the width of the bed..

    [​IMG]

    I had to move the hanger for the nozzle on the pump due to the tank being lower than the toolbox. Also had to cut the end of the switch off.. sorry its sideways, I tried everything I could to get it straight.. always came out sideways..
