    Well since the snow is not flying it got me in the mood to find some pictures of a couple projects i did over the summer..My boss let me take the 420d home for the weekend to rip out a few stumps and it ended up being a little big for that machine, wasnt able to pick it up into the truck so the contractor at the end of the street had to bring his old 980 up and chain her on to the bucket :dizzy: and the other project is a lawn i did for a teacher with my uncles massey ferguson and a few of teachin my little cousin to start off young :nod: let me know what you think.

    Why didn't you just rent a grinder?

    because this was free besides the 15 yards of loam that i got for $10 a yard so it cost $150 total and i ripped a bunch of rocks out to which a stump grinder might not like to much :cool:

    They are the outer 2-3" of your tire you aren't using. "Chicken" to lay her over in the turns. You must do alot of freeway riding or burnouts because that tire is FLAT. Just noticed the frame saver, so drag a knee.

    hahah i knew someone would get it. im just messing with ya, if your new on it dont try to many things at once you'll end up with road rash and chicken strips, thats not a good combo

    haha i get it now if i knew you were talking about the bike..ive been riding bikes my whole life..i actually just got that bike..picked her up for $2500 but im not one of those crazy riders either and theres not to many nice corners to lean it over on around here..mostly traffic and stop signs!
