  A young man that Mel and I met at Santa Margarita Ranch tractor show  near Paso Robles , Ca. when he was 7 ,completed a O4 orchard this year at age 16 ,competing  in the Delo tractor project for high school students .

He logged 700 hours in one year on this old girl . Engine had spun all the rod bearings 

he fabricated some of tin work and , some of sheet metal missing , painted it himself in back yard .

Josh on a TD 14 teaching his girl friend how to drive crawlers . Pictures today at a private getogether and dig in the Central Coast of Cali . Mel and I with Josh , we are very proud of him . He is a forum member here but between the 04 , girlfriend and school he does not post much .

congratulations Josh

Great job and story

Sounds like a fine young man already equipped with some serious skills?

The patience it takes to see a project like that through.

This young man has a bright future in whatever career path he chooses.

Thank you for showcasing him here Tony!

One Thing I don’t understand is when does he have time for a girlfriend?

Maybe that is how he found her. 

After all a girl impressed with that kind of work is a keeper!!!

tell him how amazing he is with blessed skills beyond his maturity, i couldnt do that kind of thing if I tried with 7000 hours let alone 700 - wait will I even live that long? 7000 hours sounds like a long time

Awesome job for sure!

Are you mentoring him Tony? Or is he mentoring you? LOL

He needs to mentor me !

He is something , he could tell you all about the workings of a td6 at age 12 .

Sadly...that being the case......there will be some  Democratic   leaning moron who will percieve this innate knowledge of a TD6....at that tender age....as some sort of  'unnatural  social  behaviour '' ...and the lad will  require  some sort of ''rehabilitation '' in to  this new age woke culture...(whater the heck that means...)  Boy like that can't be seen growing up and getting enjoyment from some "Fossil feuled "'  contrivance........Good grief, no....

Looks like he’s doing more than fine, awesome skills and a nice girl, he has a huge headstart on many others and no matter which way this bleak future goes he will be sought out...or leading the underground
