    Green & Orange.....

    I know everybody loves pics so.....here's a few from back in October. My buddies wife took these, & finally sent em to me yesterday. My buddy is on an Orange 2370. We were digging out a pond. Not a fish pond, more of a general wildlife watering hole pond. The majority of it was done with FEL's. However, there was a rock shelf towards the back corner where the natural spring was. That's where the backhoe came in super handy. Was a fun couple days.

    The end result was a pond about 9' deep at the deepest point. I don't have a picture of both tractors side by side, facing the same direction but, I think you can see what I mean about the 1025R having a larger presence. The 2370 impressed me with what it could do but, this experience solidified my opinion that I had made the right choice at the time. This was the first work I put my backhoe through. With several more project under my belt now, I've certainly got smoother operation.

    Our wives laugh at us, & tease us because we are like a couple little kids playing in the dirt. Besides individually, we've got multiple joint projects lined up for spring. Sure is fun

    Cool and thanks for the pics.

    The real question, does the pond have water in it?

    What a great project to stretch the tractor legs on. If I dug a foot deep over here I would have water in it already.
