Oil it up good if you got any of that cursed road salt on it!

Thanks. Not much salt but some mud to wash off! Going to clean her and lube her all up today.

Good luck with the mill.

FYI: In VT on a lot of the state maintained highways they are using salt and/or a brine solution.

Luckily the main roads were all dry on this day. All the snow was up at elevation. So she was a little muddy but no salt.

If the people down here turned onto that road they would go right over the bank.

Just curious, what town was the mill/pictures from?  I've covered a good part of S. Vt chasing whitetails.

I would've been out there with lights on!😊 Another thing I'll mention, your tires are supposed to remain in contact with the ground (don't suspend them with the mill on the outriggers only). The layout of the WM uses the wheels to help stabilize the mill, and you can tip it over if they're not touching the ground. If you have to get the mill higher to level it, put blocking under the tires. All that said, the first thing I do is get my mill up so the wheels are 3-4" off the ground. I'm 6'6" and I don't like bending over. Just be aware of it😉
