No problem whatsoever with using the metal cutting wheel in the Skilsaw. 

I had time today to put the hydraulic hoses in sleeving and do some dressing up:


 
I used the rear hydraulics and ran kinda hydraulic "extension cords" to the front of the FEL.


 
Da front attachments.


 


 


 


 


 
And then a few more views.  The first use will be moving ~20 SYP logs onto Marty's property.  Some will be sawn for the customer and the rest will be framing lumber for Marty's pole barn for his construction equipment.

Looks nice Magicman. Iím sure your going to like it. Nothing wrong with hydraulic line extensions. I had hydraulic extensions made years ago when I had a Cat 247 CTL. Ran them back to my Great Plains drill and planted some CRP. Worked pretty slick. Still have the extensions with quick connectors. Might come in handy someday

First job for da Thumb:



This ERC log looks big because it is.  That is a 26" top end.  A neighbor had given this tree/log to me several months ago but it was still standing.  The power company crew dropped it today so now the log is in Marty's back yard.  There is no rush to decide what it will become.

I would cut as many feet of sweet cedar closet paneling the log would yield.  ;D
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.

Marty's "startup construction company" got another hoss today.


 
A remote controlled Vermeer video service wire plow.  (He could also install telephone service and irrigation pipe.)  It's only 34Ĺ" wide so it can go through a standard 3' yard fence gate. 

I guess that it is time to remove the "startup" from his construction company.  D4 Construction Company it is.

I love those little vermeer's When I was looking at one for moving stuff around the logyard and picking up logs from ppl one of those was high on the list. The one I was looking at was stand on and if I remember right had 3500 lb lift capacity. 

It was tiny so it would fit anywhere.
