tip is loaded, garage and shop are de-trashed [Jun. 2nd, 2008|02:28 pm]
Doug Ayen
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.
