    I finally overcame the cheapskate side of me and bought a back-saver. Scooping 25 heaping wheelbarrow loads of sawdust with several more to do as well as facing having to shovel several tons of rock under my new deck helped convince me.

    Really though it's more about the time it will save than the exercise, even though I need more. There are a lot of jobs I've been putting off that will be a lot easier.

    4wd, diesel, pto, cat 1 three point hitch. It's 7 or 8 years old with only 275 hours (same as new). I got it at an auction for $4100. New price was over $12,000

    Pic 2 is where I took one of the tie down straps loose and it rolled forward. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Pic 3 is $40 at a parts yard and an hours work.

    Pretty little thing you have there. I understand why you would want a time saver like that. How many horses?

    I like the little diesel ...

    ... but, the back window o_O.

    At least, the tractor came through that little fracas okay.

    Nice little tractor! I'm jealous of the bucket, that would sure be handy.

    My husband did the same thing to my back window with the quad. That shattering glass sound sure is a bummer!

    DH would give his right arm for that! Sorry about the window. But being a handy guy you managed that nicely for $40. ;)

    Thanks everybody.

    23 hp

    When it happened, I was more aggravated at how long it would take to sweep up the mess than replacing the glass. That safety glass explodes when it breaks and goes everywhere.

    Years ago, a truck crossed the center line and nicked my truck mirror. The impact was enough to break the mirror glass, which hit my side window hard enough to shatter it.

    I had glass in all 4 pants pockets, both shirt pockets with the flaps buttoned, and in every nook and corner of my truck cab and sleeper. It hit me in the side of the head hard enough to turn the skin red, but no cuts.

    It was 30* outside too. That was a chilly 3 hour drive to a glass shop.
