    I'd love to get my hands on an old 943 or any old 1980s 900 series. Would come in handy for Snow Removal and some serious excavating and maybe some serious Demolition or loading jobs if we needed. Theres a guy out in Flushing that has a small tree Farm and he has a 943 with a Tree Spade, Forks, bucket and the Rear scarifier. I took a looks at it one day, THAT THING IS A MONSTER!! AND THATS NOT EVEN THE BIGGEST ONE!!!
    Theres another good use if we needed, serious Tree Work. Any way cool pics!

    Put that little digger to work with Darren from Sudden Service plumbing, that dude needs to stop using a shovel.

    Ah, reminds me of when I was a little nose dripper (something my Welding instructor said)
    Wonder if I can find any pics of me when I was little sitting on equipment.

    Well I found some pics of me as a little equipment guy:
    Had to use Ron's method "Taking Pictures of Pictures"
    I have a scanner on my printer, but haven't got around to getting it to work.

    First 2 are me at 8, with my neighbor Kenny giving me a ride on his Kioti.
    The next one is me standing next to a restored John Deere 110 Garden Tractor.
    This last one is one of my favorites, me on a big Caterpillar Tracked Tractor. The man behind is my Uncle Andy, who also has a like for equipment and he got me going on equipment at a young age. :)
    Next is me at 4, with my uncle on his old John Deere 430 Diesel Garden Tractor.
