Got to do some serious digging!

Recommended Posts

Had to dig a hole in the woods so I can bury ashes from our burning pit. Was having so much fun I missed half of the first quarter of the Packer game. Brought out a lot of limestone.

Thanks Dutch, It really is fun when you can use your hobby in conjunction with your livelihood. Our burning pit is where we burn a lot of refuse from our remodeling business (to save on disposal costs). Gee, you think maybe now I could deduct the cost of the backhoe and tractor on my "Schedule-C"?

Paul, Did you build that backhoe yourself? I would like to have one like it, Its really cool live in the country in north carolina and every thing has to be dug in red clay, I'm also a Norsk from wis. last name Kvalnes, Try that one on for size!! Any way any plans or help to build one would be appreciated. Roger user name samson rkk

Samson, Plans are for sale in the attachment classifieds if you're interested. Good to have another fellow Norwegian, welcome to the club. Lloyd, As for burning, I do not believe in burying materials that can be burned. The air gets cleaned naturally whereas the earth cannot (near as fast anyway). It is mostly wood/paper that gets burned. No plastics, rubber, or foam (during daylight hours anyway. LOL) Paul

Paul, there's a pallet and skid maker around here that sells the stubs and trimmings for something like $5-10 a truckload, makes great early and late season fuel for wood stoves. I don't know if that idea's practical for where you are and how much material you have, but it may give you coffee money and help folks keep warm at the same time.....

Paul. I hope you weren't contributing to GLOBAL WARMING either during the day or night. I'll send Al Gore over to investigate. You know he created the internet and SimpletrACtors.com don't you? LOL

Kirk, The scraps I burn are mostly from demolition of old roof rafters, sheeting, cabinets, window and door frames etc. Everything is full of hardware and nails. The good scraps get burned in my shop stove. Lloyd, I know Al Gore invented the internet. That's the only reason I voted for him! LOL!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
