    Mad Max 1 chipper truck gets a new life. Got the frame straightened, got the alignment fixed and engine work. we didn't have them replace the bumper and plastic parts we can do that in winter.

    Looks like the surface on the moon but it is a valley ball court. It is not used but I have to keep weeds out. It is harder than you might think.

    A lot of sticker burrs......hard to knock out.

    Have you seen the youtube video of this unit? It was done by Dirt Monkey.

    Pretty impressive.

    It looks like they’ve gone with the cheaper turf-saver tires instead of the turfmaster tires. They say they are the same size, but the turfmaster i believe are the lower profile tires. Same ones that are on my Hustlers. I also had them on my Wrights that got stolen a few years ago when they drove off with my whole enclosed trailer.

    I did love my wrights though. I put a bigger drive pulley on it so travel speed was much faster, as well as put double blades on it. WOW that would mulch like crazy and fast too!

    This Homeless:rolleyes: guy has nice set-up. I eat my short stop meal under the tree were he was parked. This is a high traffic intersection and he was out in the middle 2 ft wide curb with a sign. Several people gave him food.

    City enacted new camping laws that allow homeless to camp on any public property. As expects tents went up everywhere. Then people started dropping off beds, chairs, etc etc. Well today I noticed that the police watched over a clean-up company to clean some of the stuff up. The homeless couple watched over the process with police to ensure none of their important stuff wasn't removed

    ATX rocks on their site:rolleyes: Perfect set-up lots of car traffic and food stores close.
