Added a new machine to family

Postby Drfting1 » Thu Sep 09, 2021 8:18 am

Once again sorry I'm not on much lately, new house and property have been keeping me busy, house needed some renovations, yard cleaned up (previous owner didn't take care of it much).
Wound up getting an excavator here for some clearing and grading... Cubs were champs doing what they can. Was renting a backhoe probably once a month, I finally decided to go ahead and get a compact loader/backhoe to things cubs can't (at least with implements I have lol). Broke down and bought a Massey Ferguson gc1725mb. After I had it delivered and starting playing with it, I was amazed how much power these little things have, I won't be renting that larger backhoe anytime soon. Already been knocking some of my projects out.... Including tearing down a large shed previous owner built and was falling apart.. what a cool little toy this has turned out to be, still using cubs to come up behind and do the finish work.

Hope everyone is well, I'll try to get on more regularly soon. Bill
