Looking forward to participating in the forum. I'm really impressed by how helpful and generous folks are on the forum.
Always raised around machines, I think that what normal people do, like maintaining their drives and cutting firewood, just part
of life. Not a professional operator but have a JD 500C loader/backhoe, Komatsu crawler with pyramid tracks and six-way blade, and a sweet little JD 3120 4wd with 300X loader, a few blades, and buckets and post-hole digger. I really hate digging with a shovel, having dug a septic that way.
Currently my joystick is not working on the 3120 in the outboard position, leaving my bucket curled up and unable to uncurl. I've put a post up on that for some help with troubleshooting.
For relaxation when I'm bored: start the heavy iron up, sit and listen to 'em purr. Diesel Therapy
