Dad and I had planned to do some things in the lower garage, like cleaning up and all that jazz, but we got up to Grandpa's place and we saw Grandpa sitting on the Bull dozer. He said he needed an break and he offered me a chance to learn how to use it! I accepted the challenge (who wouldn't) and I got some great seat time on it!
This experience was actually pretty fun! I still can't believe how easily I took to it! Here's some Footage, and Pics of me on it :D!
Oh, and yes, we know the muffler is bent... I didnt do it :rolling:

No, this is small enough, it'd be a kitty.

I was really proud of him on Saturday and have been asking him to post the pics since then. He did a fan-damn-tactic job (biased parent) IMHO for never running it before and never driving a Tracked vehicle of any kind before. This one needs the clutch packs adjusted and the main clutch too. Steering isn't balanced and the gears grind once in a while.

What impressed me was the beginners luck with the blade. He moved quite a bit of dirt and didnt take but one major swipe out of the grass. (Of course, I had to give him a hard time about that, but I know I would not have done as well.

Well we're using the Bulldozer FOR the 'dozer haha!  We were pushing the dirt infront of the back door to the barn, so we could get the 'dozer out and in without going over center and knocking ourselves out on the door! :D

Keep the videos coming!

Great job, Ryan, as usual!  You are a unique young man indeed.  Most young men your age would opt to sit in front of the computer or whatever and be entertained.  I think you would agree that there's no better experience than being outdoors and taking the reigns of old iron and (in this case) pushing some earth around to create something useful.  I hope you have a good understanding and appreciation for the situation you have.  Someday you will be off on your own, have a family and be too busy for times like this.  You'll be with some friends that are your age, just shooting the breeze some evening and, while they are telling stories of top scores they got on certain games or whatever, you'll be telling stories of things you've done (pushing dirt on a dozer for example) that they can't even fathom.  They don't know what true fun they are missing.  Take full advantage of this time as you are being taught well by a good family.  Hope to see you and dad in November.

Looks like you had a great day. I have always wanted to try running a dozer some time. The little older ones just look like it would be fun.

You did a lot better than me.I was hogging out a small pond the other day and ran it off the track in the bottom of the pond.I own a 1010 and have owned two others in the past.Mine looks to be a lot more mature than the one you are on.

 

You don't see many 4 roller 1010's.

 

There is a guy in Danville that has lots of parts for 1010's if you ever need something.
