    I had a couple of 12' 2x6s underneath to keep everything steady - wouldn't have done it otherwise!

    I found out that those 12 sheets of drywall were only 10 footers. My mistake - trusted the clown at Rona to load the right ones. Went back today to pay for 10 footers but pick up the 12 footers I need for the bloody ceiling! This load was a bit more..........unpleasant. The 2x4's bent and I had to drive pretty slow. The front tires were still on the ground but.......... Oh well I got them home without incident.

    Shot a few pics for you guys!

    Today was the lift out of my truck and onto another mini (maxi).
    He then placed it onto the deck outside my shop with the crane.

    My powertailgate is a little small in length for the 7 foot long 1700lb lathe
    And my gate lifts only 800kg max or about the same as the lathe, but I didn't want to take a chance of it ending upside down on the road.


    This is my buddies truck, Awesome EH? It was $18,000 nice but not cheap.

    About the lathe, you bet I can do little jobs for anyone in need when I get it set up, I'll be ready to do some machining of parts for trucks or whatever.
    I have a milling machine too.

    But I need a month or so, there is a job I need to do first.

    I had a little loading fun too.
    I had a need for some timbers to cross a wash-out with the P-30. Found some on the side of the road after a certain operator spent some more of our tax dollars, in up-grades and improvements...I saved us some money by alleviating them of the need for disposal...:p

    With the drought this year I finally got around to using the 275gal water tote I bought a few years ago. I wouldn't fill it up all the way but still would put a little over 200gals in it soooo....around 1600lbs. Seemed to work OK but then I never got out of 1st gear while going to the orchard.
