Wrapped Up
« on: June 25, 2012, 06:38:05 PM »
This afternoon I backed up to grab a log and here somewhere in the woods I had picked up a coil of 3/8 inch steel guy wire. It grabbed the tread and was wrapped around the back axle tighter then bark on a hickory tree,needless to say by the time I got it unwrapped I was talking to myself. It was a whole coil what a mess, woods plants this year are crazy there up to your arm pits I can never remember weeds this bad in a woods. Saw two self propelled combines I will have to be careful with what else may be hiding under all the plants  ::)

Sounds like you will be having a good return on jobs like the one yer on Autocar!   Gather up the scrap iron and give yerself a bonus. Good to hear that cable didn't cause you any breakdown grief!

I got my Bobcat tangled up in some really nasty wire that Grandpa has used for electric fence.  It's a steel cored, copper coated, a bit smaller than nine wire, springy and hard.  I had to take two tires off the machine to get all the wire cut away and was tempted to bring the cutting torches to the job.

I saw a disc mower hit a big piece of carpet someone had dumped in a hay field. The thing unraveled and plugged that mower so bad that it took close to a day to get it working again. Cutting electric wire out of a disc mower is pretty bad too.
