|tip is loaded, garage and shop are de-trashed

Many thanks to Carl and Scott for helping out over the last couple of weekends in de-trashing the workshop areas. The grinding area in the garage is now useable, and the assorted junk and trash that was starting to clutter up the workshop is now gone. |
The front end loader has proven quite useful for moving stuff around -- though the thing drinks like a fish. In just over an hour of operation it went through 3 gallons of gas -- and I'm pretty sure there are no tank leaks. Oh, well, if I wanted efficiency, a 50+ year old tractor was a bad purchase. :) Even so, it made trivial moving a dead lawn tractor, some heavy but dead equipment, and in smooshing up the trash in the tip so I could stuff some more in.
I just have a couple more things (non-workshop related) to toss in before having the dumpster removed again.
All said, the 30-yard container is about 3/4ths full, but it's certainly not packed in, and I'm nowhere close to the 4-ton weight limit.
