I think Ben is smart enough to leave the hour meter disconnected while he uses it. So you may never know!

I'm betting that he got it done just before the winter got real cold, and now that the weather broke he's been out doing custom plowing with it.

 

I dropped it off with under 300 hrs. on the tach.  It will probably come back with 500+ hrs.  :D :D :D

 

OH, BTW Ben, I'm curious as to how you handled the rear wheel weights :poke:

 

Custom plowing was done two weeks ago, I started doing some deep subsoil work now and its doing fine.

 

Don't worry, its all part of the process.  I have to test the hydro and make sure the rebuild handles the strain.  :angel:

 

I have a picture of those rear weights that I need to show off.  :smilewink:   I handled them like a dumb Steve Austin.

Are you insinuating anything?  Do you really want me to go where you are going, because you know I'll go there too, right?

Steve Austin.  Astronaut.  A man barely alive.

 

"We can rebuild him.  We have the technology.  We can make him better than he was."

 

The only thing I can't figure out about that show is how Steve can do these amazing stunts (like pulling concrete posts out of the ground) without breaking his back.  His arm might be bionic, but there is no way it can do all that without having something else give behind it.  :rolling: :rolling:

I've always thought the same thing. I can see you've seen more than one episode :D

Another thing I can't understand is the excessive use of slow-motion.

 

I love it when he kicked down the cell door in the first episode, and the other guy in there was goin' How did you do that?!?! Steve says, "vitamins!"

I am running far behind on pictures, but diesel smoke rolls again out of this shop!  Hopefully this weekend I will be able to do a comprehensive update.
