    When you have the money build it as big as you can afford, beg, borrow and steal, there never big enough.

    Nice shop, I would hate looking at green grass and see it white at this time of year. Snowed here yesterday but it was still white.

    Nice looking Ford! Is that a blower on the back of the tractor?

    Thanks for the comments. Like the shop a lot, it's 36' x48' with a 16' lean-to. I would be lost without it, even though I worked on stuff in the driveway for a lot of years. The tractor has a 7' blower on it. Here is a video of it blowing banks back http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nyjTsN2roYw if it works I'm still learning. The truck is 09 F-350 XLT diesel that earns it's keep. Here is some pics of the truck. The last one is after a bath.

    Hows the Ford handle the gooseneck with that tractor on it? Did you do anything to the rear suspension?

    Yep. I built the rack, wanted something clean and strong. I haul culverts and stuff up on it. The truck is basically stock. The little excavator weighs more then the tractor (around 11,000 lb) truck handles it great.

    Here's a few pictures of the shop. With a small farm and excavation company, I would lost without it now.
    1st is the loft with a work bench below.
    2nd shows the welding table with a new ramp being built for the GN trailer.
    3rd shows the backside when we were taking pictures for a mowing pamphlet.
    4th is one of the projects that we can work on inside during the winter.
    5th is the lean-to on the side. One bay is for sand and the other is for salt in the winter.

    Nice equipment. It's nice to see another Maina' on hear. How do you like that Wain-Roy set-up? I run a Case 580 at work with a Wain-Roy and I have to say I like Geith a lot better.
