eats 100gal a day on economy mode in 6hrs just loading trucks.

100 gallons?????? What is the EPA thinking? Sure it burns cleaner, but an older would not burn half that!

Exactly, with the piles of empty DEF containers around and all the extra resources used to make these ridiculous emissions systems. There probably is no environmental benefit at the end of the day.

The good news is that John Deere has fire extinguisher port holes all over the engine compartment.. 😉

Burning 3x more fuel to get the same job done, is not worth it. I don't care how clean it burns. Now we just hand over 3x more money to the oil company's in stead of keeping it. Seems to me the oil company's probably paid the EPA to do all this emission stuff to so they can make more money. Don't get me wrong, I believe pollution is bad, but honestly I have been doing a lot of research on "climate change" and I do not believe it's man made...

That is a good view. You have nice trees - I have nice rocks  :D
Maybe we need a view from the cockpit thread.

What do you mean by NET ZERO?

in the grand sceme/system(s) of the universe, ALL inputs are equal to ALL universal outputs. It is a zero sum game. NO exceptions. No environmental policy is, by any well meaning bone head, that is to dense too understand that fact, is EVER going to change it.

Only humans are capable of believing that they are, at best,  greater than this universal fact and worst equal to it, not realizing that they are indeed only a minuscule part of it. The rest of the creatures and living things know this within their being.

It is tantamount to a creature pushing the wet rope of life and pulling the aluminum chain of death at the same  time. The end result is ultimately death to the human in the middle at about the same time he realizes that the NET result of the action he is attempting to establish is about to balance out at a ZERO.

G_man, I like that tread idea and I could use a lot of those nice rocks. We have some but nothing like that. How about a rock thread. 😉

Ha ha ha !!!!

That looks like our back pasture last year about two hours after my wife warned me not to wreck it!! 

"You better fill the holes afterwards!" she said

"But I'm sick of sharpening the mower" I said

"Fill them" she said

"Yes dear" I said




There's still holes

It's not always fun and games.  This was the first thing project last Monday.  Operator backed up on the large hemlock stump while swinging the boom to the side.  First time I've had to deal with that project.  Looks much worse than it was.

I've came close to that a few times, Ken. Hasn't happened yet, but I know any day it could be me- I have seen daylight under the bogies more than once :o

Last winter I got a phone call to come help with the same situation. My boss/forwarder operator was trying to swing and drive and did the same thing.
