Doug Howard Rough Cut Demo with Ventrac Compact Tractor

We recently had a customer who was interested in some further training and information on how to best use the Ventrac in a rough cut environment. This gave Doug Howard the opportunity that he was looking for to do some clean up on a property around the corner from our Duluth, Georgia store.

Doug spent a few hours clearing an area under a power line. Some of the debris was 4-7 foot tall and had everything from weeds, to grass, to small trees, to (as you’ll see in the video…) silt fence, linoleum flooring, drain pipe…

This was Doug in his element!

Check out the video for some great tips/tricks from Doug on how to best attack a project like this.

As you see, it would take multiple people, multiple days doing this by had with trimmers and bush cutters. The Ventrac tackled it with ease in a few hours. Doug was able to expertly work his way through the lot using all his senses to search for problem areas and danger spots.

I admit it. I’m a space junkie. Anything NASA related… I love. I closely follow commercial space ventures and can’t wait for the United States to get their act together so that we can send up our own missions and people on our rockets with our ships.

In the 1990s, NASA started using the Makita 6213D on the international space station. Apparently they’re still in use or have been upgraded to newer NiMH battery. I wonder if they have any Lithium Ion tools onboard.

Check out this video from Russian Colonel Maksim Surayev, who has recently started sharing candid videos on YouTube of life onboard the International Space Station.

Who hasn’t picked up a cordless drill and pretended it was a gun?

Cool stuff

For a while now, we’ve been on the hunt for a premium gas grill that we’d feel as much pride with as the Big Green Egg and Traeger product line. We have found that product… and the sad thing is we didn’t have far to look. They were stocked in our True Value Warehouse, and we’ve often thought of them as an option, but we kept looking…
