I believe I still have a matching drive shaft to that one in the junk pile somewhere if you need a pair.

He could have been trying to pull stumps. If you can't lift them out, try driving away. :)

Turns out that I didn't really need to turn up the hydraulic pressure on the tractor to split some huge pine logs....

My splitter is feeling the effects of running off of my backhoe hydraulics. Break it, weld it better, try a bigger chunk of wood.  :D I don't know what the relief on the splitter is, but the Kubota is putting out 3100.

I'm going to take those off. Then I can get the beam right on the ground for the big chunks.

These pictures remind of my days on ground support for helilogging. Those guys could break a steel ball with a rubber hammer.

This promises to be a good thread😁 I usually don't tear too much stuff up, but when I screw up it's usually pretty bad. A few weeks back, I backed my loaded forwarder into the front of a truck that was loading on the landing (worst part was, he was parked exactly where I told him to load) I was just barely creeping when I hit him, in fact I never even felt it. Pushed him back about 3'. He had just started loading, if he would've had more wood on it probably would've totally wiped his truck out. As it was, it didn't look too bad, but it all adds up- Ali-arc bumper, A/C condenser, radiator, air to air cooler, grill and hood. $10K or so👎👎👎 I'll have my head hanging quite low for some time. No, I did not think taking pictures at the time would be appropriate 😑

Thank you, gaproperty. As it turns out, insurance covered it so it least it didn't come straight out of the boss' pocket. I need to get a back up camera on my machine, not long after the incedent you just quoted, I had an elderly landowner (I later learned he has fused vertebrae in his neck, so he can't look up or to the sides) drive right up behind me when I was unloading on the landing. I started backing up to go to another pile, and I happened to remember the processor operator telling me that this landowner had a tendency to get in the way. So I decided to turn a bit to see behind myself, there was a Suburban about 5' behind me!! If I wouldn't have seen him, I would have drove right over the top of him before I felt it. It was a very bad move on his part to drive right into the blind spot of the machine, when I wasn't even aware he was out there, especially in light of the fact he could barely back up a vehicle because of his medical condition. I mustered my best stern tone (it's not really my way, especually with an elder that you are working for) and told him under no circumstances could he come that close to the machine. He was very sorry, and I felt bad for jumping his case but I'd rather do that than run him over!
