Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Thanks,he didn't get me, but he did get the camera a few times. It took him a while to calm down before I could put him back. I thought that I would take advantage of him striking!
interesting - thanks greetings Tilly
These were used in conjunction with the plow rig, in the next picture, to clear a path for a logging road. A more full description of where my information came from is with the plow picture next.
A curiosity of what this was, lead me to calling the town of Solon to find out more. I had my suspicions and they were confirmed. The plow looking thing was mounted on the front of a vehicle, perhaps a larger skidsteer, and pushed through the woods to clear for a logging road. I assumed any large trees had already been cleared. The torpedo things, in the previous picture, have the ability to be filled with water to make them heavier. They are then pulled through the area previously plowed, either by the same machine or another, and work to rip and beat up any surface roots or bushes left behind. I assume the cleared path then gets covered in the gravel that makes the great logging roads that we have in Maine. Because I can find no more pictures of this type of rig, I assume the whole thing was homemade at the time. Does anyone have any other info on this? Perhaps someone actually knows who built it.
¡Excelente! Vista de película.
