    Expensive morning bush hogging

    Was out doing a bit bush cutting this morning, when I noticed this metal stake laying on the lane, had an orange end on it. Wondered where it came from, figured the bush hog picked it somewhere (there used to be junk yard in this location), oh well no big deal. Finished what I was doing, went next down to some cutting for neighbor, took 20 min or so, then went down to store to fuel the tractor. As I was heading to the store, I thought the AC wasn’t very cold. When I got there , I opened the to look, and this is what I found.

    It was an old survey marker in the bushes.
    checked price for grill LVU30878 , will be about $130, the condenser LVA18420 will be about $550 or so after taxes.

    I am guessing you didn’t have your loader on.

    Very important when brush hogging unfamiliar ground or high grass. Carry your bucket a couple inches off the ground - this will eliminate most obstacles like this.

    I usually do have the loader on, but was only going to be mowing grass and small bushes. I forgot about corner marker. Oh well, accidents happen.

    That sucks.

    I don't think CP would approve of that survey marker.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but don't forget the cost included to have someone evac the AC system of air and refill with freon once the condenser is changed, unless you have the capability to do this yourself.

    But you're right, sh#* happens to all of us! If it didn't something would be wrong!

    Those AC parts seem cheap.

    Had a tweety bird do a suicide run into the grill of the Dodge. AC condensor was 900. Took out the compressor by the time I figured out what was up.
    .A few days later

    After 240,000 mi on the Dodge ,I'm at just shy of 5K for AC repairs ..and counting.. Its gonna be 97 tomorrow and current compressor is on its last yee-haw. Already took the shim out of the clutch to baby it along a bit more.
