Yeah the heat was chitty, but gotta take a page out of the Mexicans play book, start at sunrise and have your 10 hours in by 2pm. Worked well for us... haha and air ratchet ? You cant be serious they are using air ?

Another 80,000 bu of storage for this fella... onto the next. View attachment 241225
They haven't been here yet so assuming they use air. Why not? Way faster than a ratchet and wrench. Maybe cordless? Been awhile since had bins built on the farm. Lol

Just a guess, but bet everyone went cordless. No messing around with hoses.

Had last bin built in 2011. They used air. I should have known when you make a comment on this site there is a good chance someone will tell you that your full of chit lol
Hahah. I wasnt saying you were full of it, I wasnt just surprised to hear air tools. I have never saw that in the bin patch. Corded electric many times. We've been using cordless impacts since 2007 and also used corded up until about 2011, been full cordless since. Except for grinders, been running cordless on those since 2017

The cordless they have now would be night and day over air or electric.
The m12 3/8 stubby impact comes to mind. Light and powerful A 6.0 battery and you’d have bin built by time it’s dead.

Lmao. Its one of those excavator arm attachments for my skid steer, I just took off the bucket and made a Ripper tooth for it to remove bigger rocks and stumps…. Works pretty good!

Arms up, tilt down and back up kinda thing? No cylinder. How big is your machine? Stumps and big rocks suck with a bucket!

Yep pretty much how it works. The attachment did come with a cylinder to dump and roll the bucket, but due my poor judgment in building the ripper,there was so much force due to leverage it bent the cylinder rod!! So I built that top solid linkage to hold it fixed now. Its on a 1845C case, around 50 or 60 Hp I think, little 4 cylinder cummins.

Nice work. My machines is prob about the same size. Bobcat s185. That’s a good idea. I don’t have many big rocks but digging stumps is too hard on my machine for what it’s worth.
