oh yeah and Ditch Witch FTW! We had one at the lumber yard that we rented out. They dont fuck around. It even had a locking differential.
they sure are wild to see in operation. my dad is the mechanic for a company that installs gas pipelines, they have like 4-5 of each of the machines i posted in their fleet! one of the big pizza wheels stands about as tall as me... 6'2"!
i've got my ditch witch hat setting on the dash of the ranger, lol

It took me 10 years to get my yard to look nice and its all messed up! Check to see if your homeowners insurance would cover it, mine wouldn't but you may luck out!
i remember when i was really little a plow in our development ran over the main valve for our water, so our driveway looked like the delaware in the middle of january. called 'em up and they basiclly said that its for our house so its our problem! and of course no insurance would cover it....
