Fun stuff for boys and toys. Jorn got drive the Same tractor. He loves driving around in big machines. Think most boys do.

A big thank you to our neighbour Colin Ednie-Brown for the use it on this project. You see the action here slowly pulling the ripper and mounder kindly supplied by Greg Hodgson from Forest Products Commission in Collie. We could not have managed this project without the generous support a a great many people.

Testing testing, the evening before the right hand side of the mounders bolts sheared  away leaving it laying on the ground. Got to tell you it was heavy and not so easy to get onto the trailer. We spent the evening finding and putting rated bolts onto it. Jorn thought it best to take it for a spin on a roadside paddock for a few lines before going out to the real deal.
