That's an awesome setup, and very capable!  Even though I have wheeled loaders, smaller machines are invaluable.

The regulator came in the mail yesterday. After installing it she started right up with no charge light glowing.

I was able to get it out of the woods and down to my garage for a much needed oil and filter change. After that I gave her a quick rinse and moved her into the new shop. As of Thursday it has a roof and shingles so at least it will keep her dry.

The concrete guy stopped by to talk to me about the floor and what thickness and type of concrete we should use to support the lift I want to eventually install.

I'm going with 5" of 4000 psi with fiber, since I am only planning on a four post, that should be way overkill.

Here are a couple of pics of the jobs the 1020 has been doing here on the property this past summer.

Mowing the front field and helping move branches when trimming trees.

 My wife Renee wanted to play in the snow with the loader yesterday while I was busy with the snow thrower.

Yeah, moving snow and making snows walls along our parking area at the top of the driveway is good training.

I'm always impressed with how well it goes with those turf tires, 24" to 30" of snow, no problem.
