    These bubblers that they put in for trees are a contant problem I bet this one took an hour. I just stopped to let him try those two metal shovels on the right.

    The right side tire dropped in a hole and unit was bottomed out. I got the tiger cub and hooked to side to keep from sliding further into the ditch.

    I got a jack and kept raising tire and putting dirt under it. I eventuall put a 2x8 under the wheel. I was able to back out.

    Nothing was bent or broke.

    So far none but sitting here watching last batch coming towards us. We are dry but irrigation is still enough since weather has been great. Our lake is still going down so further reduction in irrigation hrs is coming.

    Well we had two trailers rolling with 3 pallets in each. I think we used about 10 pallets
    I think there is 86 bags on pallet.....860bags. And they weigh 80# each.
    Started at 10 and I see no workers at 3.

    Thank you so much for posting so many photos!!!

    I love this thread...

    There is a guy that I am currently doing some sub work for and he has a Cougar that just wont die either...

    Funny enough, I just saw one on the Boson Craigslist.... Brand spanking new.... Bought in 2001 I think? Never used....

    The guy wanted 10 G's and his reasoning was because Walker GHS and Navigators fetch 13-15 now a days...
