Pushing orchard brush

Time for posting more pictures of what is happening on the farm. As we are close to bloom time in our almonds, I will start posting more pictures of whats happening for those of you who might be interested.

Here are some pics of our shop built brush rake pushing and burning brush. Ignore the paint as it is in need of a paint job.

If our prunings are heavier, I hire a brush grinder on rubber tracks that grinds up the prunings to a sizes that is about like match stick size and leaves them in the field for decomposing.

Thanks for the pics. I'm trying to get a grip on what you used to build your "loader".I like it. The JD544 is the common loader used here in central Fla to clear orange groves. Just watchin' the movies.---Bob I see Wes has a sense of humor too>

The chassis "started" out from a 1980? 36' diesel pusher motorhome. Otherwise everything is built/designed in our farm shop.

It has a Cummins V8 B210 diesel (504 cid) and a 4 speed Allison.

You are a man after my own heart. Why buy it if you can build it yourself to do exactly what you need. Ilove it.
