    Nicely done Chuck. Things look pretty green back there since the last time I visited.

    Glen, the tool bar is the way to go if you are farming. Care must be taken when dozing with it. It is not built as heavy as a 2s or 2a blade, but it serves my purpose. I made the ripper out of a Cat roadgrader shank and some scrap steel. I also made a spring tooth harrow and I am in the process of putting together a field cultivator. The hook on the toolbar is for skidding logs. Lower the toolbar, choke the log, lift it up and away you go. The bracket that the hook is mounted to is for mounting a V snow plow that I still have. The spacing of the ears on the tool bar are just right to mount my Gannon scraper box.
    Perry, someday I will get down there to give it a try

    Chuck, let me add my appreciation for the nice photos of your project and your D2. That toolbar setup looks sweet. GWH

    Chuck, that's a good idea, using the TB as a logging device. When I get around to clearing the site for the house, I may need you to bring the D2.
