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! :banghead:
Not enough yet, lift up a little in the seat, :laugh: the engine dies! Oh, exit right and hit the joy stick or left and move it into gear. :mocking:

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

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

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

Nope haven't done that ,,not one time ,, only twice so far. :laugh:

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. :dunno::flag_of_truce::banghead:

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).:banghead:

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!

:lol:I always figured it all too weird, the doors can sit there for years and not move. Drive a tractor by them and BAM, it jumps right out in front of ya.:mocking:

Luckily I have the Artillian blade wings on my plow because I whacked the trim on the side of the garage door a couple of times this winter. It left a couple of big black smudges but no damage.

I'm hoping I can was those off when it warms up. If not, a quart of paint is pretty cheap, right? :laugh:

I could pull the trim boards down and run them through the surface planer and start all over again from scratch. :laugh:

Been there / done that. When you are concentrating on your rear implement it's easy to forget the swing area needed for the loader hanging out front.

That's one reason I have the extended weight bracket and suitcase weights for when I am brush hogging in the woods. Nice that it gives the extra clearance when navigating between lots of trees.

Look on the bright side of all this, the silver lining so to speak. Without pics it didn't happen! :lolol:

When snow clearing a few weeks ago, I backed into the wife's SUV and put a slit into the bumper with the top of 3pt. back blade. I was watching the right and forget about the left.
I waited until I got done pushing snow and told her later that afternoon.

She smiled.........

NOW SHE WANTS A NEW SUV.
