Sounds like a great day again today for you. Did you hand slide those tubs into the bucket?? Where's the photo of the burned up tractor in the scrap pile? Your slipping Daniel !!
OK, pics coming later. Not much to see, as mostly just sheet metal & the old Freeman loader. I hated putting the Freeman loader in the pile, as I do have another pair of good cylinders I could have put back on it, but the front end of it got quiote hot, so I'm sure it's temper is gone & would bend if put back to work. Heck, we bent it years ago & had to add gussets to reinforce it. That loader we had on Dad's old MF 50 from as far back as my memory goes (pre-school).
Yes, been slipping some with pics, but remember, I'm a druggie for a while.
Had to slightly raise each protein tub out of the one below, then a simple slide onto the poo forks, bucket not mounted. Raising each tub required a little effort effort, but done right (which I did Cat!), there was no strain at all. Dad helped me lift heavier items when needed. I will admit, being an decently honest guy, I did move a 45lb wheel weight with just my right arm, but then all us guys get stupid now & then right?? By end of day I'll have my pickup parking space back.
Dad spent most of the day straightening the old shop.
I did get to aching right good a while ago, but realized I was 2 hours past meds time. Feel good now. Teresa said all signs of swelling are gone! Kinda hard for me to see, even with a pair of mirrors.
Glad to hear you are easing back into it. I have a problem with the "ease" part. I tent to jump back in before I should.
That little FEL is a life saver isn't it.
I've ran my little Massey 3 1/2 hours or more today just moving scrap & putting things away under roof. That little loader will always get used, even without a dairy going. Handiest thing I've ever built. Willie, if you ever get a deal on an FEL, go for it man....you'd NEVER regret it!
