Havn't posted anything here in a while. Put about 10 loads of dirt/top soil for NJ (loaded with rocks) onto the front lawn. Put about 10 loads of 2 year old chips into the garden in the rows. Moved a bunch of rocks with the 8B BH, one that I am not sure my FEL will be able to move (but we will see with the Artillian frame and landscaping forks) and took down 2 more trees with 044 and 200T al lthis past Saturday. It was a busy day. Worked right up until dark.

Demo of what is left of an old room that was in the pole barn.

Used the grapple to remove what was left of a utility pole

Then I pulled out a piece of sheet metal used as a barrier

Then I made it a little smaller

RTGT, The Artillian grapple made neat work of that! How do you like the Artillian and just having the center as a single grapple? I have purchased the same but have not implemented it yet. It sits in my barn and I still need to get a diverter valve etc and then set it all up. I see the dual grapples and when I purchased it I figured that only having the center should be enough. it looks like you have used it quite a bit so I thought that I would ask.

I have never had a problem using the single grapple section for anything I have used the grapple for. Brush, logs, rocks, utility poles, pesky neighbor kids......

Initially I figured I would start with one and see how it went. If needed I could always add #2. That is one of the nice features of the Artillian system - they are adaptable.

Sometimes just the single grapple section is all I use. Sliding it to the side allows you to pick up and stack rounds of wood pretty easy.

Hurry up and get that diverter valve working. Your missing out on some high quality grapple time!

Used it to break the beads on my daughters Jeep, we needed to replaced all five TPMS sensors. Then we added two flag decals, didn’t need the tractor for that though LOL

Graded out a ditch, installed a driveway pipe and backfilled. I got rained out right as I finished backfilling and didnt get gravel on it yet... maybe later today or tomorrow if it dries out enough.

Also had to get borrow dirt to backfill with. I have a road on my property that has a major washout in it, I mean like a 4-5' deep rut running down the middle of it, its nasty and could easily swallow a tractor. I started from the bottom and dug back into it to create loose dirt to backfill the driveway pipe with. I am going to guess I am a quarter of the way to fixing it... again, no pictures I got rained out.

worked the new 3039R hard, its a beast for its size.

great idea using the forks to break the tire beads Kennyd, and what a great weekend to add flags to the Jeep! Kudos for having her put in the effort to, signs of being a good dad!

got a break between showers and got it capped off

Took loads of rock from the pasture to our pond to help control erosion before the big rains the next few days. Alot of work stacking this rock in the bucket even though it looks meager on the bank. Also hauled some from other areas of the pasture to a lowspot we cross to get to our pond to feed the fish.

A few weeks ago I made these post bases for my neighbor who is redoing the porch on his old log house, they were powder coated this week:

Today I went up with the tractor to help set the three beams he had a local timber frame company make out of white oak. The center beam was about 800 pounds according to the installers. Everything is mortise and tenon joints that will be pinned, the main beam has two “Stopped, splayed and tabled scarf” joints, they don’t need to be pinned, but they will be for visual effect.

Next, off with the forks and on with the grapple, the county dropped two trees out front on the road today and left the oak wood. We’ll use it in our patio fire pit. Waite Tool to the rescue getting the lines connected to the front!

Hauling off pond weeds with the loader.

Next step is to install the backhoe, swap out the bucket and start cleaning up the muck on the banks.

Used the pallet forks to bolt and glue three 9 foot sections of utility pole together for a temporary dam at the upper pond spillway.

Tomorrow the 375A backhoe will make a new home this.

Kenny, how do you like your Artillian Grapple and how do you like only having the one sectional grapple?
