    That's the heart of east coast railroading!

    Been another busy week. In addition to getting calls from our new advertising campaign, I've been busy up in Peabody MA mowing various projects for a utility company.

    On the first day, I had two projects that I needed to get done. First up, is an overgrown ROW that had to get cleared out.

    Then, after the small ROW project, I had to mow an overgrown access road that went up a hillside for the rest of the afternoon. Perfect work for the excavator :cool2: Just walk up the hill a bit, put the blade down, and walla- I have a billy goat mowing machine!

    What do they put in the soil up here to make these trees grow like this? This was supposedly cleared out 3-4 years ago:

    Making my way up the hill:

    Looking down from the top:

    Done:

    Not a bad amount of work for a 9.5 hour day :drinkup:

    Looks Good! It is really impressive how thoroughly your mower cuts and shreds that brush!

    Great work as usual Andrew. I may have missed it but are you still on a rent to own on the deere? Great to see you keeping busy.

    It's not really a mystery Andrew. It's typical utility bull sh!t. So much of it if fact it make anything around them grow.:laugh:

    The jet black Ford looks nice :drinkup:

    The ROW with the yellow gate was sure over grown you wouldn't know there would be a road there.

    That set up does not mess up the paint as bad as you would on the T-300.

    That high flow flail really does a good job. How's it holden up and how often do you change the blades?

    There is quite a few places around here where its overgrown like that and you walk through the area and say there is a road here some places have 16 inch diameter trees growing in the middle of them.
