A big event happened this week end at my house. It was time to get power to the new shop. The electrician came to put in the wire and get power to my new shop. They trenched 125 foot from the house to the shop.
They were going to hand fill the trench. That’s where the Cub comes in to play. They took $ 100.00 off my bill if I filled it in myself. While I was filling in the trench they made all the connections in the house and in the shop.
After they watched me for a couple of minute they asked to drive the Cub. I had to tell them "No" because the last time I let my neighbor drive my Cub it came home damaged.
After I had finished they asked to buy my Cub. It would have fit on their trailer behind the trencher. We could not agree on a price. They made a fair offer but I have too much in the hydraulics and it’s the hydraulics and plow that make this work so well. I offered one of my other Cubs but they wanted the one I used. I told them there are alot of good Cubs out there and they could make one to suit their needs.
Here is the first half of my shop with lights and power, I’ll do the other half tonight. I found a person that had 16 eight foot lights for 8 dollars each, most had working bulbs so I took them all. This shop will be bright if needed. The chair is there in case I need a nap. And while they were at it, I ran cable TV and internet to the shop. The big white thing next to the long stripe Cub is a powder coating oven I am making out of an old freezer and the pellet furnce that will heat the shop is behind that. I made the shop long enought to fit my fork lift and two Cubs front to rear.
