If it snows 'round here this winter as much as it's RAINED the last couple of months I could probably use one of those! ;)

Its what I do between getting up and going to bed!

Having something to do like I have probably keeps me alive.

In any case a new tractor to me is the ultimate “Boys Toy”, and I can really be a fair dinkum “Digger!”

Well it arrived @11 am as arranged and we spent 45 minutes on a walk around and then tentative steps for me in the drivers seat!!

Pretty strange at first especially the FEL but after the bloke went I had time to drive it around and get to know the controls a bit better. (lots of them)

After lunch I set about sampling it's capabilities with a range of jobs I had queued up. Just samples mind, to see if the tractor (and I) could do them.

Firstly I pushed a heap of dead blackberry canes out...easy peasy! Then I had a block of wood ready to get pushed under a big downed tree, I wanted it pushed under to support the trunk when I cut it from the rootball. Done in one go....happy with that! Then I grabbed a chunk of wood I've already cut off but left because it was too heavy to lift. Caught in the jaws of the loader I carried it to my wood stack and dropped it on the pile and the only thing that worked hard was my foot on the accelerator.

I tried pushing smaller felled trees around and can see that is going to work to a degree, then I tried pushing ti tree out and managed to knock a lot over. Returning later with a slasher on the back, knocking them over and skittling them with the slasher seems to be the answer for the smaller bushes.

I grabbeda bucket full of gravel and took it up to the start of entrance and tried to metre the gravel going out as i backed over the water damage but mastering that skill will be beyond me on day 1, so it ended up in 2 small piles which I dragged the bucket over filling in the low spots. Dead easy and once again no shovelling or wheel barrowing were encountered during the exercise!

Later I fitted my slasher and headed for the longest grass I could find and went through it without hardly changing revs! Slashing is gonna be a breeze now with power steering, short turn radius and some serious grass cutting grunt!!

Day 1 and we have a very happy Digger on his digger~

Here it is at home looking as flash as a rat with a gold tooth!!
