I was going to go to work for him when he transitioned to the conventional equipment, by the time I started in December he was already back to a new John Deere CTL team.  He always really kicked himself for that deal, he lost a lot of money on that one. He couldn't say "conventional equipment" without shaking his head and getting mad at himself :) Nik was never content to just keep doing the same thing, he always had to try something different. Sometimes it worked great and other times not. But, he had the fortitude to keep pressing forward even when he worked himself into a corner, where most people would've gave up. He reminded me of some of the adventurers, like the man (Shackleton?)that went across Antarctica to save his crew whose ship was locked in the ice and running out of provisions, or the rock climber that had to cut his own arm off with a dull knife- Nik had that kind of fortitude, to keep going no matter what.

Sorry, 1270d, I kind of hijacked your thread. I will be sure to report on the Scorpion when I start picking wood up behind it, and helping with repairs. Hopefully, there won't be too many bugs to fix as the crane beyond the new base is the same as an ergo parallel crane, so is the H7 head. The engine, pumps, and drive components are the same as an 8 wheel Ergo, so the new 3 piece frame and leveling components will be the part we have to learn about.

Wow 700,000 well I guess that's only about 17,500 cords of pulp to pay it off 350 cord a week just for the note wonder if ponsse would give me one on time, for some reason the bank thought I was crazy

That's why Ponsse puts all those fancy lights on their machines. So you can run them night and day to pay for them.
