I'd say you did pretty good with that deal.

My Lab loves to put his nose on the window in our bedroom to wait for my wife and I to come home. I don't know if that'll help you at all, but it seems to work for him. :lol:

For you older folks out there, I'm having flashbacks to images of Al Bundy standing at the front door waiting for a pizza delivery. :laugh:

Was looking through the paperwork and noticed that the ballast box is in that deal as well. I had intended for them to get rid of it and use the box blade as ballast, but I may just keep it anyway for when I really need a heavy ballast load to offset the FEL. I've got a bunch of landscaping bricks that I can use for free ballast.

Good idea!

IMHO, the ballast box is a great thing to have...and you have a good dealer that included it with the loader. While a box blade will work fine as ballast, nothing beats how compact the ballast box is when using the loader in confined areas.

That was where it showed up in the detail (under the loader) The only thing I was really checking when I went through that part was that it had the 53" bucket.

Good thing I put in a 12x16 shed last year - it's going to be the implement shed here pretty soon. :laugh:

Kenny is right. It won't take long for you to get tired of the box blade hanging out there.

My camera had a tragic collision with a ski slope this year. I'll have to wait until the wife gets back with her smart phone. (Could maybe use the game camera to snap a quickie.) But good lord you probably don't want to see it right now. Attached 2-car and pretty stuffed with crap from the winter (and my 74 Bronco)

Here are some older pics to help me pass the time.....

Here's a pic of the Bronco (pic is from my old house circa 2009 - I miss that 3-car garage) Not much Bronco left on it - 32V Mustang Cobra motor, 46" long racing shocks, full custom suspension (I fabricated everything on it - bumpers, cage, suspension, etc.) It's now been 13 years in the making, who knows when it will see the road (the tractor purchase definitely pushed out the remainder of the funding from the committee, that's for sure.)

Some pics before (white) and after (brown) of my house rebuild which has been in-process since I bought this house in 2011. Pics don't show the new roof that went on this winter. Now that the house is done I can focus on the yard :yahoo::yahoo::yahoo: All new windows, siding, roof, pulled all insulation and replaced with more efficient foam, encased the house in 2" additional foamboard, front bay window was completely rotten, etc. Home is 1964 and only had R7.5 in the walls and 13 in the ceiling. YIKES. It was a bank foreclosure which was abandoned for a good 2 years.

Couple pics of the front and extreme back yards, there is also a tree'd in back yard directly around the house. Plans are to put in a 40x40 pole barn (30x40 enclosed, 10' shed roof) in the back corner of the far part of the yard. FEL, box blade, etc. will certainly come in handy with that project.
