PatD said that the governor had to go.  Well not removed nor disabled, but tightened up a bit.


 
Here she and Ben are lining up for a drag race.  Marty's ride easily outdistanced hers before the adjustment but it will not now!  :o  Dat woman is crazy!!  :)

Marty made another addition to his construction business today with this additional "Hoss", seen here with his two Sons; Ben & Luke.  It's a Vermeer PTX 44.

This all began back on Reply #173 when the output shaft snapped off of one of the gearboxes on my Bushhog 3008.  I finally received the two replacement gearboxes in Reply #191 & 193. 


 
So Marty and I were finally able to find time to remove the wheels and


 
Load it up to be brought to his shop.


 
Unloaded and ready for some wrenching.


 
The sheared off shaft is seen on the left.


 
Two new gearboxes installed.


 
@$500 each, the old stumpjumpers are reused.


 
The topside before connecting the input shafts.


 
Back in business and I am happy even if it did take 11 months.  September, October, & November are my Bushhogging months so nothing was lost.

Here is da new horse. 4066 John Deere 65 horse. Rear tires are filled with rim guard. With a CID grapple The cab has all the bells and whistles.   

 Really happy with this set up so far. I have had the grapple for 2 years.

The new Bushhog gearboxes got a royal workout this week.  As you can tell by the Sweetgum and Persimmon saplings beyond the tractor, it was much needed because nothing was clipped after an output shaft broke last year.


 
It wasn't just me because PatD was plenty busy on the ZT.

Oh, and then Marty, Ben, & Luke brought the excavator and provided manpower for replacing a post under the Strawhouse:


 
The front left post was replaced.  It is 14' tall with 4' in the ground. 


 
OK, as you can tell by the roof line I got the camera a bit crooked but at least the house is straight.  I'll have to confess that the temporary 5th post kinda seen in the center at an angle is Sweetgum !!

We still have to replace the left rear post which is also rotted off at the ground, but that will be another day.  The Strawhouse is safe to use temporarily as it is now.

This time it was Luke and he got a REAL Hoss.


 
2017 Mustang GT.


 
Gonna take some Oats to keep that Hoss fed.  He has been saving his $$ so he reached in his pocket and sprinkled some sawdust on the salesman's desk.  ;D

Yup, 'Nother Hoss for Marty's "startup" construction company came home last night !!



A 2019, Vermeer D20X22 directional boring machine to complement his other smaller D6 boring machine.


 
Marty, Ben, and Luke getting their first look at it in the daylight this morning.

I suppose that his company ain't "start up" anymore.   ;D
