Title: In the wake of the storm
Post by: Sirdeuce on December 20, 2010, 10:35:44 AM
I just fixed this fence last February! Got my work cut out for me. Anybody that has been up here has seen this spot before the storm.

Yeah, it's stuck. Tried to get the opened diffed POS on the flat area behind the house so Barbara wouldn't have to walk down the muddy ass hill. Zero traction! Back it up to get a bit of a running start and put a wheel over the edge. Just got worse from there. Tried to pull it out with our Jeepp, but it has open diffs front and rear. Just dug holes. I'll find out just how bad it is aftewr the sun comes out to play. I think it sunk to the pumpkin.

Pic looks like the little Taco is barely off level. The shot was taken from about 10' above the truck from the deck.

As for that huge boulder? I guess it'll belong to the neighbor down the hill when it finally gets tired of it's current residency.

Know anybody that wants a big rock for landscaping? Would Marlin like a rock for the parking lot? Put it out by the sidewalk for customers to park their rigs on! Just for reference, that board next to the rock is a railroad tie. I thint the measurements are 8"x10"x96"

Might be another available soon! I night drag the one still in the hill down so we don't do this again next year.

Going to drag the big rock down the hill before the mud dries. Hope the jeep can handle it. Probably make an attempt to pull the other half down to prevent it from rolling down the hill. Maybe after the ground gets hard again, I might drag the larger rocks to the spot on the lower drive to renforce the area where I got the Taco stuck.

That doesn't look so bad. Do I still need to bring 3RZ PWR up next week?

Thanks for the attempt at moving the rock Mike! Doesn't look that big until you get a reference, like your truck. Or a body on the rock.

Was that Chee's cheesey DIY turbo manifold? As for the rock......... MATTOX!! I'll be chipping away at it this weekend. Hopefully, I can at least get it down to a manageable size.

I'll take some pics tomorrow, but I cut that rock in half. I don't think your truck can pull it yet.

Let me know and I'll bring the BEAST back up :burnout:

Here's the rock cut in half. Can you find one of these ----> :burnout: That spins in place?!

The flat side used to come out to where the closer tire marks are. Amazing tool, the mattox, it didn't get tired at all! Too bad the thing has more stamina than it's operator. After all that was done it didn't look tired at all!

Naww, the little Toyota that could, couldn't. My neighbor came by with his backhoe. The rock got moved, but the hoe had to roll it down the drive. Guessing the remaining mass was close to 3 tons! Still a lot of dirt to move! A lot of work!

What did you use to break it up?

A mattox, the little tool that could.
