    Dirt work

    First time in my life, I had to hire someone to move dirt. Father was "always" around with a machine when I got a wild hair to do some dirt work. Well, being he's been dead almost three years, I had to bring in a "outsider".
    This guy has a few machines that he does side jobs. He does earthwork as his occupation, and actually worked with the old man on a few jobs...
    So I wanted a few small hills taken out of the south end of one of our fields, we rent out, and the clay under the topsoil pushed over the end of the field, to slope it down. It was a fairly steep drop off, and it worked out well.
    He stripped back the topsoil, then pushed the clay to where I wanted it, and replaced the topsoil to the field.
    Now I can plant a food plot on the slope for the deer. Easy 100 yard shot from the shop.
    Anyway, got a few pictures of him starting, but he finished up before I got back. Just wanted to share a few pictures of his dozer. Yep, International TD 15C. He said it's a 1975, and only has 4000 hrs on it. Somebitch pushed well.
    I'll post some pictures of the finished work another time.
    I like seeing this "old iron" still pushing dirt.

    They can't all be turn key.

    I hope you pulled a permit to move that dirt Todd! You are not allowed to touch your property unless you pay the government to do so.....Old iron looks good being worked.

      Great pics Todd! I like the old TD15's. Perfect size dozer. 15C would have a DT-466 in it, running around 140hp. Too bad he still has the muffler on it.

      Oak, I hate Illinios. Hate it! But.... at least where I live we don't need permits to do anything I can think of. Now in the county seat town, if you do work you're supposed to get a construction permit..... supposed to, lol.

      Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's obsolete!

      I've got a lot of Cubs in the barn....but I have more implements/attachments!

        You certainly ain't the only one who hates Illinois. While the reasons why would fill volumes my most recent reason has to do with the DMV and license plates along with their fees... Which are ridiculous.

      NO PERMITS this time. If they don't like it, fine me.
      We get away with alot of "stuff" if it's "farming practices". They don't say much then...
      They can't all be turn key.
      Make the best of each and every day.
