Sorry, I missed that. Yes, it's perfect!
I'm in the middle of adding on to my house. Gots a few thousand pounds of boulders from excavating a new basement. Gotta figure out a way to move em into my woods before the project is over. Local place will rent a bobcat for $300 for the weekend - but it's another $300 if you want a bucket to go with it!
$300 for a bucket? Do you get to keep it after the job is done? $600 for a weekend is not an awful deal. Especially if you can get a long weekend out of it. Does that include delivery and pickup?
No, but it does include the trailer. Still tough to stomach $600.
The contractor's JLG is sitting in my yard
Gonna see if I can make a deal with him to either move them - or let me move them.
You want to rent a mini excavator, not a bobcat skid steer. You want the thumb to pick up the rocks, and it's way more precise to place them. You can also dig if you need to set the rocks in the ground a little. You'll break your back man handling rocks because a skid steer can't do the whole job. A mini excavator should be $250-300 per day.
If he left it on your property I'd presume he intended you to use it.
Left on my property WITH the keys in it. That's my presumption as well. My wife insists that I ask, unfortunately.
Looks like I can get this guy for $315/day
would make it easier than dumping rocks and trying to move them later. That's plan B if I can't play with the Lull.
Make it Plan A.
If you rent that, you can use it to place some logs too.
Yea and you don't want to be anywhere near that small stream when it's raining hard. It flash floods and they won't find your body until next season, jammed under a log pile somewhere in the Mississippi.
I keep telling the Ms that we need one of those around the property, but she's not buying it...literally.
Let her drive.
The blade is handy too.
Tell her the truth. Ten years from now you will be so crippled up that you will need one to clean the stalls. Might as well by one now to save money.
If we had more land, my wife would be all over one of these. Nothing she likes more than making a field visit on bridge or creek restoration project and jumping in the excavator to show the operator what she wants done.
Exactly what you want! I had one for seven years, and put over 600hrs on it clearing land, building rock walls, etc. So versatile. Had I known I was going to get into trials I would've never sold it. Oh well...
Oh, there is a few cool original obstacles!
holy shit. Someone in the family has to be into rockcrawlers too.
Wow, is this your personal area? Who’s house is being built in the background, are they going to have a spare bedroom for me to come visit?
