    Now I never said it was the best, I said it was the cats ass, as in nice, not the best. Thats the only backhoe I've ever really ran.. From what I've seen Case is by far the best backhoe out there, thats all I've seen for backhoes up here in Illinois...

    Yeah thats the one, I only moved proably 250 -300 yards of dirt, I could have done it all with the takkie but I would have been there for about 5 hours, maybe a little less If I was steady at it.

    Here is a over head view of the swamp, the red line is the new creek channel I will be digging. Going after some new swamp mats in the morning... I think I'll need them

    I'm just digging a trench about 10' wide and 5' deep through the center to help drain the land. Dang beavers are killing all the mans timber.

    That big job.... hurry up and wait, it may be two years before anything else happens. Like everything else, money is the problem.
