Yep, they took great care of you for sure! You better be sending a few bottles of their favorite beverage back!
Thank you, I think it's a pretty unique design too!Nice job all around...the arc in the loader arms is a really nice look
Thanks, Mike!Who, Hooo, that is a fine looking machine, Austen, i bet it felt good to finally take ownership of it!
You have a good point, thanks Mark!Among other nice things to look at on that machine, it must be great to look down and see no cracks or wear on all the hydraulic hoses
.I’d be a bit nervous (and excited) if I were in your shoes. We understand.
Congratulations on the journey so far
Thanks, Al. Thank you for following along.Hey Austen, it looks good, sounds good and drives good. You can't do better than that.
Ha ha, thank you for the reply, Mike!! Star Wars... now that's quite the comparison! You're far too kind. I almost have to go back myself to reorient myself. There's been a lot of twists and turns!Can only say one thing - Wow. No, better make that WOW!
What a trip. Don't know how I ever missed this but just read through the whole story, and what a story it is. All the elements of a best seller. The search, finding the holy grail, and then the battle against overwhelming odds to bring it home. The delaying skirmishes along the way as friends help to move things along with their support.
And finally after years of waiting, the uniting of a man and his tractor.
Star Wars - Move over!
Just one question. What are you gonna do for a sequel?
Man, tell me about it!!Austen, congrats on getting it home! All I can say about video's is practice, practice, practice. Same thing with audio and I've had to re-record audio sometime 10 or more times to get things just the way I wanted.
Thanks, Dave! Hopefully snow soon!Austen, your tractor and FEL turned out FANTASTIC! Just catching up, I'm impressed with the amount of modification done to the tractor, and the FEL is the nicest I've seen. Not a detail was missed. And quick connect/disconnect puts it completely over the top! The reinforcement plate that you had built in Sweden turned out so well, and was another great idea.
As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. That is certainly the case here. What a tractor! Start doing your snow dance.
