    Bent Top Link

    I accidentally left a quick hitch top link adapter in place and bent one just like that when lifting. I simply turned the end 180 degrees, reattached it, and lifted again, carefully, and stopped when it was straight. Bruce

    Log Arches

    There are two main types. Do you want to lift one end of a log and drag it, or do you want to carry a log off the ground? The two photos posted above are arches that lift one end. The other style has a long, high tongue and lifts the whole log. Bruce

    Log Arches

    if your log diameter is near the same as the upright separation, you may have trouble turning. Bruce

    Losing interest in R14 tires...

    In my experience, wide tires are best in sand, and narrow tires are best in mud. Bruce

    Daily Chuckle

    Looks like a combination of a loaded bucket raised high, turning, and running up on a berm. Bruce

    Frontier implements

    Limited CAT 1 is the tractor, not the implement. Same size connection to the implement, but not the full range of motion. Starts lower when arms are level, won't raise as high. Bruce

    Loader boom pole

    But the winch is not anchored to the ground beside the load. It is usually at the base of the pole or boom and making maybe a 120 degree turn at the pulley. The cable is mostly parallel to the boom between the winch and pulley. Bruce

    Kubota Skyroad

    This ad's map says Camas. That's maybe 80 miles west of Goldendale. Is it the one you bought, or is there another in the region? https://portland.craigslist.org/clk/hvo/d/camas-kubota-skyroad-dumper-and-blade/7167852288.html Bruce

    Mowing patterns

    This is how I used to do it. First pass at the edge. Second pass after a comfortable turn. Third pass next to the first, fourth pass next to the second. Same large turns all across the field. Bruce
