    Taking down the 2nd to last barn on the old part of the farm. The long barn this owned by a car dealer now, and what's left of farm is around the corner. We still have fields out back. The main part of the farm is around the corner now.

    I was surprised there was no comments, these type of jobs are fun to do once in a while.

    That one doesn't, but isn't bad with the blade to scoop it in the bucket.

    Clp good to see your staying busy. Looks like it will be a busy year in maine lots of people looking to have work done. I saw your backhoe was for sale, are you selling it to buy a loader? I agree need a thumb on your excavator but that's me, I don't like running a machine with out a thumb.

    The backhoe just doesn't get used a lot, with 2 excavators and tractors.
    I'm thinking of a track loader, leaning towards Cat or Bobcat.

    Yea I can see that. I would suggest taking a look at Takeuchi, just down the road from you at Anderson Equipment in Cumberland. They have a nice 240 there right now. If you do ask for Ryan Hazelton, great guy to deal with.

    I've talked with Ryan and tried Takeuchi but I gotten to like more comfort in a cab.
