Wow, that's a tugboat on wheels.  I especially enjoyed the traffic cone.

That is a nice log. Is that Detroit powered? I would like a machine that size so I could trailer myself. My 440C is just a touch to heavy.

Love it there Mr. Davis. I enjoy seeing those old machines in action and always seems to amaze me what they are capable of.

I had one of them for several years, great machine and the 172 was very cheap to run, fuel wise.
