Gassed and ready to go
Dozer hose repair
I put the hose on and tightened it up. I decided it would be best to test the hose connections before putting all the other stuff I had to take off to get to the hose back on. I turned the key and it barely turned over and it wasn’t going to start. I took the battery out to take it home to put on the charger.
Did do some more work
Well I couldn’t get the hose job done, but I could put the hydraulic oil I lost back in the tractor so I filled up the tank. I also tightened another hydraulic fitting on the blade that was leaking just a little.
And I greased the dozer and adjusted the tracks.
That was all I could do for now until I get the battery charged up.
Getting some redwood logs
I drove on down to where our water tanks are to get some redwood logs I need to repair a bridge bulkhead that got washed out last winter.
When I got home the first thing I did was put the dozer battery on the charger to charge it up.
I had some big spikes which I got out with a big hammer.
Hopefully that will outlast me. Let the winter and the rains come, I think I’m ready for them.
I was pretty beat after that so I had a bit of a nap and then did some chair hopping around the yard just enjoying the day.
When I was up at the water tank I noticed the water level was almost full so I put a sprinkler on in the yard to water the raspberry patch as it needed it.
That was it for another productive fall day. Nice day.
