Of all the scythe videos I have enthusiastically watched over the years, this is the first one I have seen that mentions a counter weight?!? Can someone with  experience enlighten me further, please? I LOVE using my scythe! It brings me peace...

Has anyone thought about buying a draw knife & making your own handles from Osage Orange wood? I'm not saying this wood is indestructible but, it's very close! I've broken my fair share of axe handles trying to chop it down.

James...How in the world did you get a Marquis tranny into an F150? You are ONE CREATIVE fellow!...By chance, is the F150 a 3 on the tree? I miss my ole '79. It hauled a LOT of firewood!

I'd have to agree with Thomas' advice. An excavator is by far a more effective tool for moving virgin soil. Skid steers are a bit easier to operate (if you've never operated any earth moving equipment but, not good for digging) I'd say contact a local excavator, explain your situation and see if they'd be willing to give you a hands-on tutorial for a 1 hour fee...It really isn't difficult (assuming you have some degree of hand/eye coordination)...It's a LOT of fun and you'll wonder why you never tried it before.
Once you master the excavator, by all means, give a skid steer a try. They are a blast!
As the ole cowboy once said, "it's all about the time you spend in the saddle."
Best of luck with your project!

Burra, I LOVE the toggles! So cool! This thread sooo reminds me of my mom and grandma. Both were avid sewing enthusiasts and there was no such thing a wasted buttons. When mom passed away, She wanted all her sewing stuff to go to the local quilting club...They were very happy to say the least...Mom didn't hoard material but, she was a very active collector;

Jay, if you have any swimming pool companies in your area, they would probably gladly give use some used liners. You can mend any holes with Gorilla tape. I used one liner for almost 10 years to cover my firewood stacks before it got too brittle to use. They are usually a 2 person job because they are heavy. Give one a try
