Backhoe Fun

I finally got to play with the backhoe tonite. Debbie wants to convert a lawn area into flower bed so I thought the easiest way to strip the sod was with the backhoe. Yippee! Well, it's a start anyway. Hey, I've got some learning to do, but actually it was a good way to learn the controls. Trying to maintain about a 2" depth was a challenge. It seems to be working well now so my plans are to spend my day off, July 4th, to put final touches on the drawings and put a bill of materials together for everyone that's interested. Powermax_Paul

It's a six stik system including stabilizers, but anyone who wants to build one can put a joystick control on it for a few more dollars. Paul

Watch out.....! Once your family, friends, and neighbors find out how easy you can dig, you won't have much time for yourself.

Well, Dutch, I'm self employed so my time belongs to the general public anyway. (I've gotten the impression that you know how that is.) I might just as well be doing something fun. As long as it stays fun! Paul
