Jobs like that made men and women out of kids.

Thanks for sharing the video. They run Beaverslides in the Avon and Helmville Valleys as well.
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

That's a pretty great video, nice to see what kids are capable of given the opportunity.

I grew up pushing hay with a truck sweep to a beaverslide stacker, it sure was a lot of fun. If only a fella could just go back and relive the simpler years of one's life.

I could smell the hay in the video.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Doesn't seem like that long ago we had one of those backwards driving trucks with a push off stacker on it, Dad made a lot of hay stacks with it. Every time the baler door opens and a nice tight round bale hits the ground I smile just a bit and think how much things have improved.
We used to have a neighbour that used strictly horses and a beaver slide. Most falls when everyone had their hay up someone would slip over with a baler and do his last two weeks work in an afternoon.

That's cool. We have an old haysweep here we have looked at putting back into production for bunch grazing. My dad says he figures he can sweep a field faster than I can bale it. With the new to us tractor having a top speed of 33mph he might be right. :)
