Equipment Video and Pics

I am starting to download some old videos and pics of our equipment. I will post them here as I upload them. I am getting a new camcorder so I will be posting new videos and pics as well. These videos will be mostly of our mossing and some of our cranberry marsh work. I might get some videos and pics of my brother in laws equipment. He has some really nice John Deere stuff.

Here are the first videos:

Bucyrus Erie Excavator

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZISZtB6Tp3E

John Deere 450 C Dozer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1Aldfe_pXo

Moss puller and Bombarier with a dump bed

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoPXG920my0

And some pics of building the puller. It is a modified OC-6 Oliver crawler.

We are harvesting long fiber sphagnum moss. It is used by nurseries and anybody that has plants. It holds 20 times its weight in water. The moss is used to ship bare root plants. If you pack the roots of a plant you can help stop transplant shock. You can use it as a ground cover around plants or mix it with the soil to help hold water. Topiary and hanging baskets are other uses.

Yeah, my dad can pretty much build anything he sets his mind too. He just rebuilt an undercarriage for our walking floor trailer. I should get some pics.

Here is the reason why I have not been able to get in the shop to finish my truck. It is the dolly that goes under our walking floor trailer. It was rusted out bad. My dad put new crossmembers in. I did some detailing on the wheels and frame. We just put it back under the trailer today.

The moss grows all by itself. It takes 3-5 years to grow back enough to harvest it again. Really good moss is about 12" deep but it varies all over the marsh. We just take the moss. We don't take any of the peat that is below the long fiber sphagnum moss.

That old excavator is really cool. I love seeing old iron still doing what it was made to do. Me and my father-in-law spent last spring getting an old 955 Caterpillar crawler loader running. It was so fun playing on that thing once we got it going.

Some more equipment. The 977 Caterpiller looks mean with the root rake. It also has a bucket. Dad picked it up cheap a few years ago. Going to get some video of it. And I was pulling the John Deere disc with the Deut-Allis. Not going to plant crops. We are making another drying bed to dry moss on.
