Did not get to ride but got to play

Did not get to ride on sat since we have hired a small digger to for weekend to dig a trench in for a water pipe and a hot wire under ground for my wifes new horse paddock. But any engine is better than nothing. The older gent helping me and you will notice he had the shovel is my 78 year old dad and he would still put a lot of young ones to shame with his work ethic.

Garage
That would have been a long trench to have dug by hand

I am glad you had a Dad & a motor to help.

Although I have had Miss Jaffa (Burnt Orange 2007 Versys) for a while, I still have a lot to learn.

Love my toys, I used to drive trucks and earth moving machinery in my 20's. It is a good skill to have to operate diggers as it saves a lot of hand digging and if you hire a contractor it costs a fortune because not only are you paying full price for machine but the driver as well. Paid the same price as my work pays for machine as long as i paid cash up front.

The long trench is about 60 metres and that is just for the water to the paddock the short trench is for the hot wire to liven the fence
