Hi, Cat Twenty Five.
Gotta love the blade control on the rear tractor on that truck. I have worked with a 'slightly' more sophisticated version of that back in my misspent youth.

Just my 0.02.

You have a wonderful day. Best wishes. Deas Plant.

Ok Deas did you have older folks around that had to keep the tractor in a rope corral as well?

I thought it interesting only one chain showing on the one with the blade. But we do have stakes and a rope as if they could be kept in like a horse. But I have heard many stories about the guys that were older learning to operate tractors yelling WOO,WOO as they panicked wanting to stop. Operating this electronic device has made me understand that feeling much better. My 2 year old grandson knows more than I and he has not been instructed, just looking and missing nothing.

Thanks to all for sharing. I really like seeing the old photos.
