I really fell in love with front loaders several years ago in Kentucky at a national lawn and landscape show. Accompanied by Jamie Mullins, former landscape partner, we played on the equipment... scooping up loads of dirt, dumping it into big piles and dreaming about owning it all! Well, I was fortunate enough to catch a few photos this weekend of Justin Martin sitting in the big scoop shovel of a John Deere tractor and elevated 3 stories to clean out the eaves of the beautiful farmhouse on the Zyler estate. What a wonderful property! We worked hard cleaning up the debris beneath 100 year old maple trees and an apple tree orchard, as well as cutting and defining beds for unusual varieties of iris, lilacs, and roses. I can't wait to go back!
