    What is this long handle thing?

    After getting the 1025R, I've forgotten what a pain hand loading sand can be.

    Free is a very good price, and good exercise for a fat old guy. About a half load on a 3500.

    Hey Randy, you have the young person's version of a front end loader there. I used to have one, but got rid of it when I bought the green machine. Don't get too used to that thing. It could set your health back.... way back.

    I went to fill the buckets. Then over estimated my zeal. Half way there. I love my little tractor.

    Make sure to get the safety vest with the upside down pocket sewn in to insert the handle into. Leaves both hands free for coffee, texting and waving at the public!

    SHHHHHH, you are giving away our little secret about town employees! I always wondered why the state workers only had one shovel yet there are four of them standing there,, then I found out they were being educated in the fine art of deception! ah yes that all makes sense now!!!!! Sort of the local and state police doing traffic details at worksites, they stand there with their coffee and watch the contractors in the hole! The heck with the traffic! And make 40 bucks an hour too!

    At first I wondered why you didn't haul or drive your tractor there to load as well, then I read the sign in the background.
