Got it finally!! franklin forwarder (pics)
« on: November 01, 2014, 06:40:22 AM »
After wanting one for ten years or so and making double payments for almost two years(still owe bank one more year) my day has come 8) 8).

This is it on the KW.

 

It was really nice to stack the wood next to the splitter!

 

Not much on just finishing up this job then lots to haul on the next job!

 

Yesterday was such a nice day! Got the machine, used it and nothing broke,and got a hot dog for lunch at one of my favorite spots! 8) 8)

I am psyched for you and Marcia I believe. This will add a new realm to your business. The forwarder looks nice and no breakdowns is what we like.

 Congratulations. Just watch then you start sitting next to the pile, taking a stick thru the door. They are handy, and you can move more wood easier than just dragging it thru the mud. Being able to stack makes the job nicer, plus looks alot better.  :D

Ya, be real careful as you learn to run it, you can actually have wood in the cab real quick and unexpectedly! You'll find that the forwarder can do many different jobs and wonder how you got along without it before. Good luck!

I'm jealous. There was a little store about 5 minutes from my house that made the best hotdogs. Then they closed. I love a good hotdog. 8)

Way to go  8) 8)          I am jealous too    btw
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

Thanks. I'm starting to learn the controls and thanks for the warning. Think it will take some time before I can pick pocket someone wallet with it :D( I'm an honest guy and would never do that). One thing I do need to clarify is that lunch wasn't just a hot dog, it was a CHILE dog, to big for the bun, steamed so nice and jucy, with ketchup and spicy musturd. $4 for a coke and dog. I'm limited to just one other wise I would be eating them like that Chinese guy in the contests :D. We are really excited to finally have it. 8) thanks 4 the posts!
