I'm 35, live in the skinniest part of the eastern pan-handle of WV. I growed up in the south (very south) central part of PA, right on the mason-dixon line. I've done/do alittle bit of everything, I have my own business that I started three years ago, I do welding and fabrication and small engine repair. But as this is growing, I also do home construction & remodeling, tree removal and dabble in lawn care. What ever I can do to put the bread on the table.:D

I joined here because I'm always learning and not affraid to help with the little knowledge I have.;) I too got here from my current favorite site MTF. But it sure is gettin crowded over there.:rolleyes:

I like pictures, so here's a few of some current deck and additions that i'm working on. PICT0045.JPG

I am 56, live in Kansas, Rock Chalk, grew up in southern Indiana. Mod on MTF and belong to MLMF. Just want to get a view of more tools that might not get posted on the other 2 Forums. Newest Tool for me is a Brush Grubber. Not a Power Tool but works really slick!

Hey Sonny, that looks a lot like a cable puller. When I worked for the phone company, the lineman used something similar to stretch a phone cable between poles.

I've seen those in northern and baileys. How far does the jaws open?

It does require " POWER" to operate, so you're good!:D

I made one using a 4' chain welded to a piece of 3" pipe. Choke the chain around tree and through the pipe.

Guess I am at the point of expanding my horizons. Some of you know already that I'm a veteran moderator at MTF and when this forum was pointed out there, I felt it worth looking at as I do like to work with my outdoor power equipment. Not real knowledgeable about things like my weedeater, chainsaw and pressure washer, so what better place to join in and glean some expertise from those in the know :).

It opens 3-4 inch's for sure. Would have to get the Frontier to pull something that big tho. :eek:

I've been working for Honda (generators, outboards, etc.) for 20 years, and it's my job to hang out on sites like this and help when I can. So, any Honda-related questions, fire away.

Caveat: I work for Honda, but the preceding was my opinion alone.

Glad to have you Robert! I am sure you can be of great help!
