I have been taking out some old concrete, and block, and field stone walls that my dad built back in 1954, and then slopeing back the grade, so it is mowable lawn.
Some of his masterpeice was so well embedded that I had to barrow the neighbors 580C to pull it down. luckly that peice broke in two, but could not lift those two and another peice with the 580 into the dump trailer, so I had to revert to what dad would have done. Got out the 10# maul, 4# stone hammer and masons chisel. Took me 4hrs. to break them down into peices that I could load with the Kubota KX41. Temps hovering at 90F and T storms brewing. I finished removing everything just before the storms hit. Had several small tornados around us. Unusual for this area. One took out an old dairy barn on an Amish farm just north of us.
My step mother was getting in a dither, and calling some local contractors to have them come and get the big peices out of here. I saved her and myself $500 by getting them out of here yesterday, on my own. She is one of those women who thinks things should happen NOW!!. I"d already told her that I would take care of them, and had already skided them out of the way with the 770. The peices were all it wanted to drag out of the driveway.

Geez Loren, I was feeling sorry for myself working out in high humidity, no breeze, working in a hot shed.

But you had hard labor! That's prisoner work! Ha, they wouldn't make them do that now!

Hope your resting some and enjoying the day

Looks like too much work to me. They have people that you can pay money to who will do that kind of stuff for you. And you can drink beer while they do it too. lol

I did a little of that the other day too. You are right, that isn"t as easy as it used to be. I even took my shirt off for a few hours while swinging the sledge. And that doesn"t look as good as it used to either. LOL But I got-r-done and that makes me the winner.
