If the un-fencing works, I'll show that mode of later.>

The thread was much longer. Had gone on about this being my counrty buggy. Use it for checking, roundingup, wieghing calves, and chasing wayward cattle. Work truck for checking and running fences. Will try it for un-fencing this Spring. If that ideaer works will take another week then and post a show-it-off picture.

What had happened, my pics found their way into an unreconizable file. i could look at them all I want there. Finally moved the lot one-by-one to where I had started. That worked, had to get back to theoriginal File.

This would get easier if I had a kid watching me.
Until then, It's Clink's fault. Haven't been able to get her up to the keyboard. She worrys, "I'll mess it up."
"So what?" I've told her time`n'again, "I mess it up all the time."
Yup! I've got broad shoulders, I know where to shoulder the blame, it's Herr Clink's fault.

How do those work for around the farm chores? Just an old golf cart, right?

This was originally a Cushman Truckster, a Quarter ton truck. Kept the entire Cushman drive train in tack. Replaced busted up single wheeled front end with a widened Yamaha golf cart steering gear. Built a new 4'x4'+ cargo out of 1/2" treated ply.
18 hp engine, rather had a 22hp. Three speed on tree, two speed on differentual. Low speed on farm, high speed on road.
I like easy open step off for tending errecting elc-fences. For my sore knees, hips and tried dispisition this machine works for me.
Got a modified Ez-Go lifted retired for ground clearance and field traction fit with folding extra seating. Seating folded down will hold a bale of hay and a bucket of corn.
Ez-Go's been replaced by 2000 6x6 Polarass. The Polarass is th e winter machine. the Cushman & Ez-Go Summer horses.
Personally I like the Cushman over all Summer worker. I can drive them elc-fence posts right off my seat, and handily drive along looping the 16ga fence wire over the insulators.
It's all in what you need first.
All these machines serve their purposes just like our different tractors.
Good day.
