    The bobcat reminds me of a little kid going "dont touch me dont touch me"

    The conveyor truck is really clever. Once you pile it with the truck, how long do you leave it sit before you sell the wood?

    Nice pile of wood i could use that here for my wood furnace :O) speaking of that you have one massive one you must be heating a wharhouse with that thing . looks very easy to load cleaning the ash i guess must be done manually .

    Nice box plow....I bet it works great. That's the first time outside of an airport I've seen a conveyor on a truck...nice....so do you use the bobcat to clean out that boiler once a year?

    We try to do nothing manually ashes are cleaned out twice per year I set a bucket in front of the door and reach over it with skid and a long scraper device we built and backdrag it out into the bucket

    Looking at your box plow...what was that in a former life? A tank of some sorts? Looks like you were able to make it work for you. Just rubber conveyor belt material on the bottom?

    Snowlord told me the wood boiler can go up to 2 weeks without needing a refill.

    We use a processor I will post some pics of it later. I will try for a video. And yes my 20ft box plow on the cat loader has had several yrs of use and definately needs some straightening and paint but we build all our own equipment so we may have 2grand in it. Looking perfect or Looking wore it all pays the same.

    I would agree but dont think I will be heading to town with it anytime soon just 20ft to make the next pile of (money) I mean wood.

    Actually the rubber I get for free and is 2.5 inches thick and 15 inches tall. All of the boxplows we have built are cut out of large tanks as I get them all for free the funny thing is the roll on an 8ft tank and the roll on an expensive new snow pusher is nearly identical.
