Just a short clip of cleaning calf stalls this morning. Got my son unloading the shelled corn, so I hooked up the manure spreader & started cleaning stalls. Bright sun is playing with the video, but still clear enough. This stall hadn't been occupied in a while, so old bedding is dry.

It is fun in this cooler weather! Not so much when the mercury is nearing 100F! I'll be spreading all this on my garden, then in a few days I'll plow it under. Been wanting to plow the garden already, but waiting till I got the manure spread onto it.

Less painful is the main thing. The whole reason I built this loader was the pain in my hands after arthritis started visiting me regularly. I'm on Meloxicam now, which greatly reduced any pain, but still have bouts when I have trouble gripping or especially any twisting of my hands/wrists. Even if arthritis left me completely, it goes back to that wise old saying.....work smarter, not harder! Using a loader is working smart!

Thanks for video, Daniel. That loader has to be one of the most useful pieces of equipment you have. Small enough to get most everywhere.

That sure gets the job done. I bet that machine is real handy to have around.
