    Happends to everyone...I hope

    Well I've heard of others doing this, but never thought it would happen to me. I was preparing for a new gravel lane today. I was using my rake and was not paying attention. All of sudden BOOM. I hit my barn door with the loader. Nothing too bad, but ticked me off that I did it.

    FEL out front, box scraper out the back. And if that's not enough, ROPS on the height side. . . . And then there's always taking your foot off the brake on an incline and not being in gear . . . ahh, off she goes!
    Not enough yet, lift up a little in the seat, the engine dies! Oh, exit right and hit the joy stick or left and move it into gear.

    Lots to learn, remember, and once in awhile it gets pounded into your head.

    We've all starter in the same place and we've all done many, if not all, of these. Relax, be safe, and enjoy.

    Oh, there's probably more that I just haven't done yet.

    Plus while lowering the fel inside the garage hit 2 of the 5 drawers of the lower toolchest. Still haven't gotten those two drawers bent back to correct shape.

    I had an old laundry basket in the garage that I kept wood scraps in. I was amazed when it exploded like I had put a stick of dynamite in it when I put the bucket down on it. I'm still finding plastic pieces.

    I became somewhat of an expert at repairing garage door track. (especially since I threw out some perfectly good track the year before I bought my tractor).

    Yup-our property is undeveloped so no buildings-but bought a couple of storage containers to store the equipment in. All I'm going to say is that I now know that a 3038e can move a 20' storage container when the bucket clips the inside lip of the door. Good information to know!
