    I'd rather hump the concrete than dig the post holes.

    I have one of those. MUCH better than digging by hand, especially in the hard packed red clay around here.
    I worked with a guy who got his hoodie sleeve hung on bolt or pin that holds the auger in place on the gearbox. (The guard was missing.) He'd left the auger turning in the hole and got off the tractor to rake the dirt away from the hole so it wouldn't fall back in when he lifted the auger out. It quickly wrapped his arm up and eventually twisted his arm off just below his shoulder. Since it twisted off it also sealed the blood vessels which kept him from bleeding out. He then had to drive a Dodge diesel truck with the manual transmission a couple of miles to get home. Without a right arm. This was before the days of cell phones, and he used his house phone to call 911. They sent a medevac chopper to get him.

    The hardest thing is to resist the urge to jump. And trying to convince customers about the seat belt. ROPS only work if you're in the seat.

    Geez!

    Yeah I try not to get too close. The PTO shaft or the auger could really kill ya.

    I watched a video once of a fella who got wrapped up in a driveshaft of a truck on stands. Not pretty.

    Had a guy in the dealership get his hand caught between a serp belt and pulley of a running truck. Broke his wrist in an instant.

    Had another fella get his wedding band between a wrench and battery terminal, wrench stuck when it completed the short circuit. Burned to the bone.

    Follow the Blood Trail

    Darrell Brooks Jr., 39 year old resident of Waukesha, Wisconsin made national news over the weekend after 20 years of arrests for a wide variety of crimes...including FELONIES!
    Just added: 5 DEATHS, and 40 INJURED...in great part due to LIBERAL JUDGES & PROSECUTORS putting him back on the streets...FOR TWENTY YEARS!!! His just prior arrest was nullified by a $1,000.00...read it again...ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR bail, meaning $100.00 from a bail bondsman put this extremely defective mutant back on "our streets" to wreak the death, and destruction we are reading about this morning...just days before THANKSGIVING!!!

    It will be ANYTHING but a Merry Christmas, or a Happy Thanksgiving for a large number of people in the coming days, and weeks, and years...in great part, thanks to LIBERAL MORONS that have deemed career criminals far more important than your average citizen!

    Democrats...the blood trail leads to you, who as a collective group have decided that sacrificing the innocent on your altar of self serving domination of our nation is an acceptable price for US to pay...for your perceived success!

    From the President, and Vice President down to the local judges, and prosecutors in your cities...you, my fellow citizens, are a simple sacrifice for the good of the liberal criminals that will do "what it takes" to run America to ruin!

    If someone really "had to die" at the Christmas parade this weekend in Wisconsin...would it have been, dare I say, a bit more justified if it had been the children, or grandchildren of the idiot judges that put this mutant back on the streets time, and time again...until this ultimate sacrifice of human lives? You see...we, the human animal, often learn only the hard way...and this is the hardest way! So...say a prayer for those innocent lives, and then one for all of America. It is time to turn the nation back to law, and order...and even the God of Creation.

    Will ANTIFA, or BLM be demonstrating / rioting in Portland tonight? Ask yourselves why not...then, ask the Democratic National Convention why they wholeheartedly support criminals over good citizens?

    Follow the "blood trail"...it leads to the liberal Democratic leaders of this once great nation.
