NoIt's been a year since dad passed.

Did a little mowing with his setup today.... It's not the far all and Schulte but perfect for tomorrow's job. Teared up thinking about him. Moms moved close. Its been a year of change.

Well after a getting stuck, unstuck and nearly rolling over in the Toyota fence truck within 5 minutes i guess we are going to call the truck mounted post driver a fail....

It is better to have tried and failed than to have never tryed at all.

 

I guess ill put it on the 3 point on the 656...its heavy but Im not actually digging with it so it should be ok...

I had been considering a gas powered t post driver last year. Oldest boy was home from college so just bought a second hand driver. The hospital bill for the stitches in his head would've paid for the gas powered. He came up too high and caught the top of the post and thumped himself in the head.

Worth it

this was the post holder on the big driver... Weighs 15 lbs and free fell from 5 feet overhead.

Ouch. My wife says that kind of stuff won't hurt me. At least not on the head.

Those round rocks would only be found in a stream or river bottom here.  Looks like miserable digging seeing that digging bar laying there.
