Been cold and took some time to look thru some old pic albums.
I scanned these pics taken about 1989.
The splitter you see is the same one as in one of my posts last week. It is still going strong.
When that pic was taken, I had just built legs for the wheels and caster, welded a 3pt hitch onto it, and welded catch trays to it. First modification of the "American" wood splitter made in Black River NY. Second modification was bigger catch pans and the jib pole. Third modification was to add a battery tray, so I wasn't dependent on the tractor battery, a tool box and enclose the entire engine compartment. Forth modification was to add hyd. remotes to power the accompanying elevator that I built for it. Fifth modification or lets just say a modular attachment was the Limb dog that I pictured last week. The splitter has warn out 3 B&S engines. I have had a HF Predator on it now for 3 years. I still have that 440 tractor and the 310 dozer. I overhauled the engine in the dozer 2 winters ago.

Some pictures of one of my tree cutting adventures in the early 80s.

Great pics, Loren!

Time do fly by... do she not???

Near that same time frame - we had just bought our farm.
Our buildings then looked "the worse for wear"... but WE looked much younger in our pics. Now with steel siding, buildings look pretty good.
Now WE are on the end of the stick that's looking "the worse for wear". LOL

Very nice! I'm guessing the black Ford was near new in the picture?

I thought it was going to be more of your "farming" in the 80s pics. I fixed the rewind on one of those American splitters from Black River for a neighbor this fall. I didn't know they were a thing until then. I live 45 minutes away from there.

Hey I have the dead ringer of that 310 case crawler . I haven't run it in years as the track chains are worn out and it will throw a track at the worst time . Do you have this problem with yours?

9001ron. No problems, I bought it from original owner a year before pic. Had all new pins and bushings installed, in good track chains. Rebuilt several lower rollers also.
