Bear,
that "cabin" your building looks incredible, sure seems like you got your own slice of heaven up there!  It looks like there are some saw horses on the porch, does that mean your still working on the inside or is it pretty much finished?  thanks for sharing...

Well the Cabin is a work in progress, the outside is 95% done just need to do the porch roof across the side of the house. The inside is livable with a hot water heater, toilet, and a coil stove. The next big thing for the inside with be the tongue and groove for the ceiling. Once that’s up we can do the bathroom on the main level and Kitchen.  We do have eletric at the house that was a fun and expensive job. A 1/4 mile access way 30ft wide was cut throw one of the pine grooves. A week of cutting down pine and skidding the big stuff out with my Jeep. It almost made me wish i had put the cabin closer to the road instead of in the middle of the property but now that its done I wouldn't have done it any diffrent even after putting the Half mile driveway in. It was a good thing the property had a gravel bank on it.

So talking to a friend at work he told me about what his father did with his Bush Hog he took little nozzles and inserted them into the top of  his deck spraying in to the cutting area. He then took a tank and a small electric pump hooked up to a toggle switch.  When he would run over brush he wanted killed he’d turn it on and while it was cutting it was also coating everything in the herbicide. Has anyone ever done this, how well does it work?

The herbicide will coat everything under the rotary cutter (brush hog). So wouldn't it kill it all, rather than be specific to the stump of the brush he wanted to kill?
Also, seems it would take a lot more spray, to get the right dose on the stump, whilst coating everything else in the area under the cutter.

Just seems a bit inefficient to me. Maybe others will think more of the idea, or know that it works good.

I've heard of similar ideas on hand-held brush cutters with blades for cutting....run a herbicide onto the blade. But also heard that it flings the herbicide all over the place...and very little on the top of the stump which remains under the blade after cutting.

Bear..nice place but you can make the pics bigger and easier to see.  :) :) :)
