    Sorrry, no new pics of the T320 in action. I will have a bunch starting next week.

    Junior- the new issue may not be out yet. It has an E35 excavator on the cover.

    Hmm.. cause when I was at Bobcat yesterday they had 2 Worksavers, one with an Mseries skid on the cover and the other with an Mseries excavator.

    And I didnt even bother to look at it cause I was in a rush. :wall

    Alrighty guys, been busy the last couple days so sorry I haven't been able to post. We started a new project that consists of mowing an abandoned railroad line and the vegetation underneath the powerlines that run next to the tracks. I'll let the pictures do the explaining but needless to say it is an interesting and fun job.

    First up, before I forget, some pics of the blades on the mower after 200 +/- hours of heavy use (hit rocks, metal blocks, hundreds of feet of steel cable, large trees, etc.). Not bad wear in my opinion.

    On Monday, we brought the trackloader in first to start doing the heavy clearing along the old railroad bed.

    This is what I had to start with:

    All roughed out about a 1/2 mile away from our starting point:

    Starting to clear out the heaviest section of the line. The trees here were extremely dense and tall, with some just getting close to the lines over 20' above the machine:

    Still on the first day here, and we are continuing to push deeper into a section of the project with really dense growth:

    Looks like it mulches everything nice and tiny. Good work!

    Getting closer to the end of the terrain mowable with the trackloader on the first day:

    Looking back over the vegetation that was cleared in about a 1.5-2hr time span:
