I then joined their conversation and suggested why not use the thicker wood and cut it in the shape of a square and have the wheels attached to the back and make 2 skids on the front so it can help move over the 2x4 wood to get through the tunnels.

Then I knew just one of many consequences of drunk driving, your own life. My six year old brother was freaking out and was completely clueless of what was going on. My dad couldn’t believe it either. Without thinking twice, he parked to the side of the road and jumped into the creek to save him before going away…

It felt like I was viewing it from the perspective of my peers but then I was viewing things from the perspective of what I know. I will be talking about not only what…

    The skid steer loader has enough on its mind to worry about dropping rocks or filtering the dirt out of them. That is where the industrial rod grapple comes in.

These mean attachments can help a skid steer loader do its job in less time than a rock bucket because there will be no dirt to sort through in the rock pile. Just pick up the rocks, give…
