    The title basically describes it all, just tell your favorite condition running equipment, like weather, piece of equipment, what task, stuff like that..

    My favorite condition has to be on the skidsteer with the grapple bailing brush out of the woods, on a cold feburary day running as fast as I can but keeping quality up with my mp3 playing, I dont know why but I really like doing that, I love working as fast as I can and still keeping my quality up, its like my personal challenge.

    All time favorite would be out raking hay on a nice warm summer day with a slight breeze on an old letter series Deere or Farmall.

    For construction equipment I'd have to say grinding wood when the machine is working right. Watching machines like that work just fascinates me. Just the brute power of the grinder ripping through whatever you put into it.

    Either that or setting galleries or storm drains with a big excavator. I just think it's so cool that you have so much power, yet you can move things with such precision.

    It has been down to 17 before. People here have no clue what real cold is here, they need to go up north for a week...

    I see we're thinking along the same lines.

    Real cold is when it's 35 degrees and raining.
