We"ve been working on clearing out this little 1 acre woods
behind my dads garage so he can put his garden out. It"s been
going pretty well and we"ve got a lot of wood out of it so far.. I
just bought this crawler last fall and this has been the first
project with it. It is a lot nicer pushing all the brush with it than
by hand lol. I"m pushing it all into a pile at the end of the
property. There is too much and neighbors are too close to
burn it.. We will also use this to shoot are guns into.. There is a
nice hill behind it.. These pictures are of the areas cleaned up.
The crawler, and my family wife,kids, and dad running the 730
with a splitter and stacking wood..

Not a chance lol it does good on little stuff, and grading topsoil and stuff like that. We will bring in my uncles backhoe and dig the stupa out then use the crawler to level everything off.

I love your pictures. Does that little crawler have much power?

Great pics. Good to see the little ones out there helping, I saw the one in purple, but missed the other one! Lol, Can't wait until my daughter can help me, she's 17 months now.

Consider pusing all the scrap into the middle of the bare ground. Farthest from any trees. Then next summer when all is green get a burn permit and the voluteer fire dept to come and stand by with a small pumper. You probably need the ash.

It has a lot more than you would think.. It's no speed demon all that work was done in first gear.. Ill be down tomorrow since I'm off work I will get some more pictures of it pushing.. I haven't messed with it at all since buyinnit either, that's on my list of projects for going through it and giving it a tune up.. Too many projects in the garage right now.

The picture of your dad behind the 730 splitting wood while the snow flies reminds me that I've thought it would be fun to have a half open shed to work under on days like that, maybe with an elevator to pile up (or load a truck) the split wood outside. Nice pictures.

When I used to split wood I had a setup inside the open front cattle shed. There was barely room to back a hayrack full of logs in beside the splitter. I could stand between the hay rack and splitter and pivot on one foot to grab another piece and there was no picking up from the ground. The hayrack still has a few chain saw marks from cutting those logs. On the other side of the splitter I had a 20 or 24 foot, can't quite remember, Case elevator that ran it up to a wagon. It sat in the wagon for a year to dry before I used it. Dad would come out from town and split for an hour or so every day just to have something to do. It'd take him about a month to split up the hayrack load.Jim

The company that built those tracks for the B was Lindiman. When they put tracks on the number series did they still call it a Lindiman?

Can't you trim the top of those stumps a little better? I would hate to see somebody trip & fall on one.

If you're going to use the hoe to pull the stumps you leave them a little high to get some leverage on them.

The MC/40/420/430 were not called Lindemans.



JD Jim- whats the box under the seat? Looks uncomfortably high. And what happened to the right fender? It's cocked way up. Factory they sit level.

That seats off a jd g. I switched my puller to a pan seat and
had that laying around. It does sit up much higher but u can
see better. Also my dad and I both are too tall where it was
from factory.. It was very uncomfortable.. The fender wAs like
that when I bought it I'm guessing got bent from a log or
something.
