I wanted to place some bales out on a old Crested Wheat grass field for the cows I am going to move on to it for calving. If I had been on the bit I would have mover them out 2 months ago across the ice from the springs that flow between the yard and around the hill. But I didn't so i had to figure another way out there. The regular trail is steep and twisty over the hill but i had another way I have used some and after filling in a bit of a washed out cow trail with some dirt I gave it a shot with the Mack and highboy with about 20 plus bales. I made 4 trips and got what i wanted moved. :D
The trail looks relatively flat in these pictures, But it wasn't :shock:

The steep bank behind the trees is where they used to dig some coal for the ranch.

Great picture story. I used to have an old MAC cabover, about like yours, but mine had a 400 Cummins and a 13 speed.

That hill looks like one of those where you just put it in 1st and 1st and walk to the top. No shifting there :wink: .

That's a Gold Dog Mack. Mack 300 with a 6 speed low hole and Mack rear ends with Camel Back suspension. Rough and slow. :D But tough :D :D :D

Winter before last there was a drilling rig up on top of the hills above where I said my steers were grazing. We aren't bothered much YET. Was over to my sisters on Sunday and from Weyburn on I don't think we were out of sight of a pump jack for 70 miles.
