Ironically, pulling the plug means the exact opposite of what you meant to say! Gotta love English.

 im just a bit of spazz and get properly mixed up language wise these days from speaking mostly Swedish.  

 

Sweden has some good sayings  . favourite translates as.."No cow on the ice" = no stress / panic.

First proper job for the Sherpa since buying it. Shifting a load of sycamore pollarding to roadside for the grabtruck.  We just smashed out the climbing yesterday so it wasnt really sorted for moving. Had a groundy stacking and cutting as i picked up and shoved about stuff. Grass tires slipped a little when driving on branches near the pile but left very little marking on the grass compared to the tractor wheels. 

Machine lifted and pushed everything well enough.   We finished the clear up in an easy half a day with a decent breakfast and lot of chatting to the client. We'd have been all day without the Sherpa, and knackered and grumpy by the end of it ..i'm well chuffed with the machine.

Worky Quad arrived on Monday.

I was subbing for a mate today on a fair sized ash.

I took one look at it and went home for the loader!

 

Really impressed us all.

3 loads of heavy without the normal ringing up and backache.

I cocked up on moving it though.

The cheapo trailer I bought just isn’t man enough, and the ramps I’ve got need beefing up.

 

Would have been better off splashing out that cash on decent 10’ ramps like Doobin suggested, at least until I can afford a proper plant trailer.

 

Still, we got home.

 

The lads loved the machine, pretty easy to get to grips with.

 

(Yes, I obviously lifted the arse end into the air testing the capacity!)
