Within the clutches of the enemy


Recommended Posts

At the start of this job in omaha i was in a 580 quad pulling a scraper. It was glorious. Now since mass excavation is nearly complete they shipped the quad back home which leaves me relegated to running a john deere 9410 pulling a box blade roller. Dont get me wrong its easy money and we have well kept equiptment but still im in a john deere! Oh the horror!

John Deeres are pretty good...less lugging power...harder to service.

Are those their best qualities? Lol

One of the groups I'm in on facebook some asked what was better a 4440 or a 1086 this was a Deere group so you can imagine what the answers where but one guy said the deere because Deere's have more torque and power, he had a 10 foot off set disc and a 1066 wouldn't pull it all it wanted to do is spin but his 3020 would pull it all day long

I am in the Land of the living sky, but the horizon is in The Big Sky Country.

3020 wouldn't fall outta a tree at the end of the day I don't mind them but let's be honest
