Check out my version of the strangest or maybe dumbest thing ever done with a couple of small loaders piloted by two idiots. This mess of crap is a bunch of vines and brush caught up in a chunk of chain link fencing. This mess had to go to make way for an all important tractor shed to be constructed. This is how we put the whole thing on a trailer not to mention move the mess across the yard. We never said we were all that smart but we did manage to get the job done without a single death or injury. P.S. this was JDR86's idea, not mine.

Team picks are common in what I do, usually not with something so tippy though. Looks like they handled it well to me.

That is a real mess. It looks like a giant birds nest when you have it lifted up like that. The only easy way to get that untangled would be to burn it.

No, this took real finesse! Kind of like water ballet. What I would like to see is how you got the Bolens to the other side of the trailer from there.

I'd guess you backed the trailer underneath the skyward pile?

We were both laughing out loud.  For yard projects these little tractors are just what the doctor ordered.  With the help of case closed, this project took no time at all.  Once we got it lifted, I could see his wheels rolling, but I couldn't see him.  And of course I couldn't hear him over the engines.  I knew he was coming so I had to get going.

 

Unrelated to this project a word of caution..........I was loading bricks today in the bucket of the Bolens.  As many as it would hold stacked tight.  Well, I got to the magic brick and all of a sudden I saw the back end come off the ground.  Luckily the bucket wasn't far off the ground and I was out of the way.  When it tipped a few bricks fell out of the bucket and the back wheels came down.  Had there been someone under that bucket the result would have been ugly.

Forgot to mention.  When we came alongside the trailer, case closed kept the forward momentum going and he pinned the nest against the trailer.  I then repositioned and together we lifted the mess over the side.
