    Why dont you have that metal box around the couplers? The 2 320's I looked at the other day had them..

    And I had another question but I forgot.. :wall

    Junior- I do have the metal box but since I switch attachment often, I haven't put it on yet. Everytime you need to unhook the couplers, you have to remove the 4 bolts holding the box on and then remove the box. Kinda gets to be a hassle after a while. It just means I have to exercise my usual caution and make sure I'm not ramming the couplers into branches- not too hard to do, especially if you have to pay the repair bills :rolleyes:

    Riverwalk- what dealer is that has the Volvo?

    A word of caution about mulchers, I seen every brand on fire at some point. Regular cleaning of debris from the engine and hydralics will help but if a hose should burst your machine is toast. I would definatly have several fire extingushers with you. Especially in such an isolated location. Not trying to scary you just giving you a heads up. These unit really need a fire suppresion system. Thanks for all the pics.

    Matt:;)

    My pleasure Matt. :) And thanks for the warnings, I am well aware of the fire possibilities. I carry 1 fire extinguisher in the machine and a larger one in my truck which I try to keep close to me. I also open the engine compartment 2 or 3 times throughout the day to check for debris build up and any leaks, in addition to cleaning other debris that has built up around the machine.

    I guess its a good thing that my inner clean freak comes out during the day :rolleyes:.

    Well, I finely got a chance to update this little thread. Tough to post with the 16 hr days I have been having lately for the past 2 weeks. Glad to be working but a little sleep would be nice as well!:rolleyes:

    Anyway, here are some photos from the airport clearing job that I was back working on the last two weekends.

    I love this kind of work, plowing through stuff so dense that you can't walk through it.

    ARP, so your just clearing the property line?

    we are doing essentially the same thing except with a bush hog and grapple, a machine like yours wasnt in the budget for the customer..
