.035 and .030 is what my welder can do. It's an Ironman 250 . 

Hmm. I’ve got the little brother to that, the Ironman 210.  I run .035 steel and stainless steel with the regular gun, and .025 steel wire and .035 aluminum wire with the spool gun I bought with it.

We have a spool gun on it for aluminum. 

Repairs to a hydraulic quick tach on the feed skid loader. Found a broken pin and the main frame is broken. Not sure what came first the chicken or the egg . Taking a old hand latch and making it hydraulic. Hopefully beef it up a little bit as it has seen it's share of usage.

Too many other things butted in front of the coupler today. I was hoping to get it done today but I will be waiting for the new top pin on Saturday anyway. AR400 is a pain to drill ..... I finally got it piloted, then I ended up switching to a 1/2" diamond bit for concrete, drilled in from each side. Then I finished the hole with a tapered reamer . Luckily I had a drop of 3/8 AR plate from another job laying on the shelf

Fixed the rock bucket that's needed work for years. It's mainly only used for firewood anymore. It had tubing welding it together that cracked at the tines starting on the outside rows. Right end was broken off . Q-tach was ripped up on the one top side . Used 1/2" thick tube that was left over from a corn planter hitch instead of the 1/4" that it came with and used a 3/4x4" piece of flat on the top to tie the tines together. 

I hope to add a grapple someday

What kind of lawn mower was the chassis sitting there in a couple photos,  Bitty?

222 case ...... I have a running 226 case and I want to make a mini wheel loader out of the two . Lol

Converting the rear blade to a log puller since I got a rear fast hitch blade last fall at a consignment. 

Homemade one is small prong so I am adding to it for large prong . Few braces to add yet

Lookin good ??  Gonna need that for skidding lumber to that saw mill 

Yes I have 5 cut down and trimmed waiting for this . I am hoping to get some drug in while it's hard snow pack and frozen ground in the woods yet to advert the mud on the bark.

Great welding and fab work as always. The square tube on the log skidder should help protect the tractor nicely.  Do be careful though, you will be hitched pretty far behind and high. I know I don't need to tell you this but one can't be too careful.

You are correct that it can be a seesaw . I pulled one log in on the way home for lunch. I wanted to have as much clearance for turning. I will try my mid weigh bar for pulling and as a last resort I will shorten it.

Other than that it worked out ok. I was able to lift the log up and get it above the snow and ice

Any weight on the front would probably be a good idea. 

That's why I'm thinking the belly bar to maybe add 6-800 lbs. I can see if it works hanging off the back side of the belly bar first so I can still get around the woods hopefully

 George helped hook up the chain for a few logs and ran the camera

You had to think skinny in a couple spots there for the video. Still fun to watch. Looks like it works. A little weight would probably help as you have said.

A 42' pump we bought new was getting thin and then we flipped it and ruined it trying to set it up again. We decided to reuse the driveline, pump and a few other things to remanufacture it.  I am running an 8" schedule 40 steel pipe parallel to the driveline tube for additional weight for stability and rigidity. I will try to add pictures as I work on it

We had to add a second set of cylinders as it would not quite lift with the Magnum on once we added the gearbox. We also trussed the legs as they bowed under the weight like the original legs did. Outer set of cylinders are used 90xt and inner set was lift cylinders off a 26k hour 75xt we parted out, we had bought that one new .

Looks good. Looks like some weight front AND rear might help you out! 

Rear tires are loaded . I wish they were dry and then add mid weights

Looks good, Bitty.  That rake on a fast hitch would be perfect for pulling rocks out of the grass along the driveway.  (Unless you have better luck moving snow than I do!)

Must be the same A hole that pushes my snow. More on the yard then left on the driveway i think again this year....?
