    What did you do with your JD LCUT today!

    I know that there is a thread titled close to this on the SCUT section. So I thought that I would start one on the CUT section since that is what I have. I think there are more posters to the SCUT section of the forum then there are to the other sections so we will see what happens here. This may go nowhere. Maybe we can get some of the CUT members to start posting.

    I got to try out my 990 with the 8B BH yesterday for the first time and also got to try out the Bro-Tek thumb that I ordered. I was running at about 1500 RPM and just doing a little digging and rock picking. This is the area I am going to put up a small Pole Barn to temporarily house the 990 and then it will become a wood shed and a storage shed after that. Once that is done then off we go to build a barn. All this stuff takes time. So below are some pictures and also a link to the same pictures and a couple of videos of me running the 8B with one of my sons in the background the other son was running the camera. You can see how rocky the place is (my father would affectionately call it a bone yard). One can also see that some of these rocks, or potatoes as I call them, are pretty big. I got a hold of one of them that had to be over 685 lbs because that is what the boom is rated on the 8B to be able to pick up and it could not do it. Thankfully the dipper is there and can do a little work as well.

    Hey rob, nice post.
    Just a few thought of mine though, Your son was correct in suggesting you raise or even remove the thumb while digging. They are a great tool for picking rocks, but when digging they prevent you from getting a full bucket, meaning more duty cycles and unnecessary hours on the meter.
    I know you are just getting started and learning about your BH, but if you will raise your RPM, instead of working at a Idle you will find the machine is easier to run and will not labor as hard when working, just make sure everybody stands clear of the swing area for safty reasons.
    Good luck in your adventures and don't work too hard

    Has15, thanks for the point about raising the thumb. Your point is well taken and makes good sense and I say that by experience. After we got rid of the stump then we raised it up out of the way and were digging away with out the thumb being down. This is where I can see the advantage to a hydraulic thumb. Richard at Bro-Tek is coming up with a retrofit for all the Bro-Tek thumbs so that they can go hydraulic. He told me that it will probably be a solenoid valve kit. That I will greatly enjoy. I am going to purchase a ripper from him as well to help with the rocks.

    I also hear your point about the RPM's. I just wanted to take it slow at this point as I get the hang of the levers and the movement of the hoe because I know the movements will be faster and more deliberate once the RPM's rise.

    And thanks for the reminder about distance to the swing and the BH for safety reasons.

    Thanks for the encouragement. thus far it seems to be working well.

    That is a lot of rocks! Great thread Rob, thanks for starting it. I suppose I will have to bite the bullet and take off the blower with this great weather, and then I can post some Deere action.

    This is a GREAT idea! Glad you stepped up to the plate and gave it a swing.

    And thanks for the photos.

    Yes we are not in lack of rocks in my place. It looks like they were all planted! Hopefully we can move some of them out of the way.

    I got about 50 mins of seat time last night and moved a whole nest of rocks and filled in a hole with the FEL. You can see two pics and a short movie here. The movie is of one rock, which is in the pics as well, that I did not think that I would be able to move. I'm impressed with this 990 and its 300CX FEL and the 8B BH.

    Thumbs up

    That rock was trying to get away from you wasn't it? Thanks for the video. Seeing the thumb in action was cool.

    Moved a vintage 1971 Lotus Europa

    With the nice warm weather two days ago I brought the vintage British sportscar out of the barn to wash it and get it ready for sale. This car has no engine and the suspension is such that you need to lift the rear end off the ground to move the car. I tie my FEL to the rear end cross bar and am able to move the car very neatly.
    Picture of the rope doesn't really show, but it is just inside the engine compartment at the center rear.
    Thought that this was an amusing use of a CUT...
