Did a wind damage tree removal today. It was a large willow that blew down across a ladies back yard. The tree took out two Blue Spruce on it's way down,but missed her house.
I did all the chain saw work first. Cut the pieces as large as I could,then used my 4 way bucket to bite and carry all the pieces.
The entire job took 5 hours and was only that quick because I only had to move the debris 100' and pile it for burning next spring.neither one of the blue spruce could be saved.They were both about 8" circumference at the stump. Pushed them out of the ground,shook the dirt off and piled them up with the rest.When I left all debris was cleaned up and I back dragged alll my tire tracks. I figure I netted approximately $200.00 for my 5 hours work.

Prior To Tree removal

I loaded my 4600 JD on my trailer and went to my farm to take off the rototiller and put on the back-hoe.Accomplished that ,and was reloading the tractor on the trailer when a Hydraulic line broke.The swivel fitting for my power beyond return line failed.I lost a gallon of hydro fluid right in the driveway. No weeds there at least.The fitting is a fancy John Deere only job.Removed it took off the O ring ,clamped it in the vice and brazed it back together.Reassembled the line ,added one gallon hydro fluid. I was back in business in less then an hour.

We had moved where we wanted to put our house becouse we did not want to lose a nice big blue spruce. Would have liked to have the house about 20' closer to the road. Here is a picture of the tree, and the house.

Had a busy day too!

Got up and had breakfast, Cheerios, breakfast of champions.

Got on the puter and posted out on TF

Returned the pig rig. I made a deal when I bought the pigs that I could use his trailer to take them to market.

While I had the trailer on the truck, decided it would be a good day to take my GT5000 down to Sears for carb. work.

Stopped on the way down and took my honey out to lunch from her workplace.

Got back home and parked the trailer, got some meat out of the freezer for supper. Started supper.

Got on my puter and am posting out on TF.

What a great day off!
