    My ballast box upgrade with photos.

    Filled with crush n run, 3 pvc sleeves and then a plywood cover to finish it off. The 3 inch pvc with the chains removed will support my chain saw blade insulted into the pvc. The flat wood area will hold a tool box also. The smaller pvc for 2 hand tools, pitch fork with tine cover, rake etc. Click image for larger version.

    Was I the only one who saw that and thought "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels"?
