I think I'm cursed in the fall!
« on: November 01, 2014, 07:01:18 pm »
Last fall was one problem after the next costing me a fortune lol. Had great luck all winter spring and summer. This fall started out good till the transfer case on my timberjack broke just got that home for repairs then a couple days later broke the center out of the clutch on my 540. So with really needing too finish this job and no time too spare I rented this.

It's not a bad machine very simple too run if it was mine I'd put breaks on it and another set of chains. But I still prefer Jacks and Deeres

Yeah there's still a bunch around here too there tough I guess. The winch on it is awesome! As long as I don't try too load it as heavy as my 540 it does a good job

 Payments and repairs together = suck. I think once the wife sells enough coffee and gas out of the store im going out to Kleis and buying one of those pretty 540's. You want the other one ? 138k for a used 540... thats more than my house cost me.  :o

Yeah we have a couple inches so far. Do you still have power we lost ours for about 45min. Gonna hold up trucking into my job a few days it's about a half mile up through a field then up a hill into the woods. O well all part of the job.

Yeah still snowing and blowing.  Just lost power ten minutes ago. Was hoping we would make it through but nope. The Bangor hydro phone lines are all tied up. Bummer about the job. It will be gone fast I think so hopefully it won't hold u up too much.

Exactly. Ive got water bars and trails to grade tomorrow, dont need that stuff. We got about 4" of it, hopefully it blows away. Should be exciting all bundled up on the log picker this morning.  :D
