DAMNIT...I went to the store this morning and bought 2 40 lb bags of cat litter.
came home, set them on the floor.
twenty minutes later, 2 cats have tore the bag open and spread it out all over the floor, rolling around in it like they are at the beach!!

Tired of sweating it.

My dl was expired for 6 years. I got pulled over, the cop was like WTF?

I laughed ,,told him I havent had to look at it, never crossed my mind.

He told me, I know where you live, you have 1 week to straighten out your s***
I will pull you over to ck.

A week later, i saw him at a gas stationed,,showed him my new license

he laughed, :rofl:

I am also not a fan of some of the others. I could have got an almost brand new Volvo for what I paid for this one but Volvo makes lousy equipment. Which is odd because they make great cars.

I lean more towards cat but I have a good buddy who is a Deere mechanic. That will save me in the long run.

Deere an Cat, the critters are top dawg in my opinion. You can take a Holland and use it for land fill , they have not nerts.

I have dug many a sewer line with a 2 stick cat. not crazy about 4 stick wobbles

I like pilot controls so that is what I buy. All my equipment has them. Worth the extra cost if you ask me.

Yes a few wackers, about six cutoff saws a walk behind concrete saw. Really probably enough of the little stuff I could have bought a few new cars but I just consider it part of the business. I like to think I am one of the smart ones because I sink as much as I can back into the business. I like to think I am doing pretty good for a guy who has only been in business since 2008. That and I don't finance anything.

do you know what a "shaker head" is. i dont know the technical name.

it is a tamper that attach's to your hoe

worth its weight in gold.

I was looking at one the other day but can not afford it right now. I need to buy a trailer for the backhoe first. Got the dump truck all ready to tow it.

Today I am going to look at picking up a trailer so I can tow my backhoe. 100 bucks an hour port to port seems excessive for transport.
