The guy from John Deere showed up with my new toy at one today. I was waiting for him and had him back in the driveway to make it easier for him as turning around space in my yard is tight for a rig like that.
The guy showed me a few things about starting the new toy and how to push some buttons to operate it and left.
I took off for the hills taking it easy and learning to operate the thing as I’ve never ran a modern thing like this. I’ve always had to operate real old tractors.
I did some work where we get our rock for repairs, then took a load back down to use on fixing up a road with a culvert crossing.
I did pretty good except for running into a redwood tree backing up. That’s pretty common around here with all the trees and it didn’t hurt much.
It was almost dark when I quit. It’s a good machine and with a bit more training I should get the hang of it.
