Yard work and stuff
My brother Tom was over first thing today with our dump trailer. The battery was dead and the up and down switch seemed to be full of water and would I take a look at it.
Checking out the switch
I had this old winch switch that has been laying on the ground in front of the garage for about a year and thought maybe it was still good and would work to fix the dumper. I’d need to give it a test with my meter to check it out.
Fixing the chainsaw
Clean it out
I blew that all out with air the best I could and put the saw back together.
Testing the old switch
Nest it was back to the old switch I needed to test out. I cut the socket I’d not need off to expose the wires and measured the switch and it worked well, so now I will use that for the dump trailer to dump it.
With the dead battery in the dump trailer I can’t left the bed to remove the battery so I put the charger on it to see if it will charge, I don’t think it will and I’ll have to get another battery to jump it, but not today.
Dirt and poo
And the last thing I did today was to remove a bunch of this old dirt mixed with poo by where the chicken is. I hauled it to some fruit trees and spread it out under them. I’ll get some fresh woodchips in there, maybe tomorrow.
After that there was only a little time until it got dark so I sat around for a bit more.
