BOBCAT EXCAVATORS E42 vs E35i Side by side comparison

Check out our latest Upload! Excavator, Tractor clearing trees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7nIEwPTGC4 --~-- While I had both machines and a very knowledgeable Bobcat Rep, we did a side by side comparison of the two machines. It is obvious to see the differences in the way each machine is laid out and designed. The E35i is a zero turn machine and is a more economical choice boasting a 24 hp diesel engine and weighing in at 8,143 lbs (long arm option) with a rated lift capacity at 10' out over blade of 2,866 lbs!! But the E42 is a beast weighing in at 9,722 lbs (long arm option) with a rated lift capacity at 10' out over blade of 4,603! Watch as we compare the 2 machines and do a walk around 360.

If you own land, or live in a remote area, have you ever considered just what you would do, or how you would do it if you had a confrontation with a trespasser? This could have been a very dangerous situation for my wife and/or I! Join me for the full story of trespassers on my land to see exactly what happened, how it happened and how things unfolded when we had the Sheriff's department come and remove a trespasser. My wife was leaving for work in the dark after a fresh snow the day before and noticed a fresh set of boot tracks in our driveway. She alerted me and then the investigation started! You won't believe what I found at the end of the tracks! When I approached this man I honestly didn't even know if he was alive because it was in the 20's that night and he was sitting motionless and not moving!

Check out our latest Upload! Excavator, Tractor clearing trees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7nIEwPTGC4 --~-- Check out some Action from yesterdays rebuilding of the driveway. This driver was very skilled. We asked him to Drop Spread (aka tailgating in truck talk) in reverse due to the real soft, freshly graded and wet dirt, and to save time so our Builder did not have to move a whole Pile of gravel as we wanted to finish this project in one day (Which we did, stay tuned for more complete updates!). This dump truck might give you younger kids some farming simulator ideas!

Amazing Encounter with Baby Bobcats and Mother Bobcat 08-14-18
 
13:04
Check out our latest Upload! Excavator, Tractor clearing trees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7nIEwPTGC4 --~-- WOW, another great wildlife encounter on our very remote Southern Illinois farm (we are farther south than parts of Kentucky). This time it was a family of Bobcats and I got and up close and personal view of two of the kittens. They were out in the middle of our gravel road/pad right next to our Pole barn when I pulled up in my truck. I thought it was very unusual that they were out in the open without the mother nearby. The ran up to me several times. I heard what I believe was the mother in the weeds making a deep groaning sound. This could have been a warning sound or a distress sound if she was somehow injured. Watch as this awesome and a little tense encounter unfolds as I finally get a look at an adult Bobcat, although I can't say for sure if it was the mother or the Male.

Buying Hunting Land-What to look for, Especially a "Diamond in the Rough" parcel

Check out our latest Upload!

This property was priced significantly below other similar parcels and had power and water on the site and a Pole barn with power already there! We thought this might be a good 'flip' property with some minor improvements. However, you will see just how a property can look great on pictures and on a website, even satellite photos, but when you get on the ground things can change very quickly..... Also stay tuned as we are looking for an investment property to divest anything we have left in our Roth & Annuity accounts to diversify. Tomorrow I'll be looking at another possible investment property for us with the goal of bringing in stable and substantial future income streams.

(It did not work out this way...) Anyway so the excavator sent over a small dozer. Watch some progress of the dozer in action. After a short day my excavator and I disagreed on how big of a project was left. He estimated it to be $4,000 to $5,000 of work left even using a BIG Dozer and/or BIG excavator. That was all the motivation that i needed to get this thing done on my own....

Mother Goose tried her best with multiple nests and eggs but could not overcome nearby predators including raccoons, possum, coyotes, sandhill cranes, crows and even a bobcat! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Isafw5W7fI Don't worry mom, we got you covered this year! Please come back! In part 1 Mrs. Kapper builds a sturdy cedar log floating platform using dead standing cedar from our woods and creates a welcoming tub to nest in. Perfect for a new mom! Part 2 coming soon - "The Location and Launch"! Don't miss it! Kapper Outdoors, living the dream one season at a time.

Changing Pond Overflow Dam with Compact Tractor Kioti NX6010
 
05:13
Check out our latest Upload! Excavator, Tractor clearing trees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7nIEwPTGC4 --~-- Watch as I physically change the location of the overflow on our 1.5 acre lake using the Kioti NX6010. The lake/Pond was designed to overflow roughly equally on both sides. However, since we are building our home on the East side of the pond I did not want it to continue to overflow and keep mudding everything up on this side of the pond. BTW, I also got quite stuck in the pond during the process, the links to those vids on how I got out are below. https://youtu.be/cznsJBza-us (Part 1 Stuck in Pond) https://youtu.be/ds7H9ler--4 (Part 2 on getting out of pond)

KIOTI NX6010 (60 HP) DOOMED to fail this lift??? 6 tons Uphill???
 
02:02
Check out our latest Upload! Excavator, Tractor clearing trees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7nIEwPTGC4 --~-- Watch as we just might have overloaded the trailer just a bit with huge landscaping Stone that we were pulling from the bottom of our Soon to Be New Lake. 6 tons is my best estimate by the weight of them as I loaded them and how many there were. Either way, we had to get out of the pond in a spot that had the lowest angle, but also had some loose clay due to the bulldozer just re working it (not very well mind you in this case....) WILL THE KIOTI FAIL????

Check out our latest Upload! Excavator, Tractor clearing trees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7nIEwPTGC4 --~-- May, 2018. Well, yet another experimental Habitat Improvement project complete! This time we built a 'Rice Pond' that I planted wild rice in with the idea that it will be a great duck pond and a backup Prepper food source. This segment shows the actual planting of the rice, and some of the pond highlights, the overflow and weather it leaks or not.. Some good drone footage with the phantom 4 pro as well.

DIY Property owners where to build a new road in Hilly Terrain?
 
04:41
Check out our latest Upload! Excavator, Tractor clearing trees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7nIEwPTGC4 --~-- Another exploring video of our new Farm, but with a purpose. After not finding any antler sheds :( I walked our South Line to look for a natural terrain feature that would allow me to cut a road/Path down the ridge to access this part of our property. I got lucky for part of it and found an old logging skidder path! But this is the method I've used on several other properties in KY & MO to find the gentlest slope down a ridge and mark it for a future road. Let mother nature guide you on where is the best spot for your road/path to access your hilly terrain.

Check out our latest Upload! Excavator, Tractor clearing trees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7nIEwPTGC4 --~-- Watch as I take you through the entire process of stocking our farm pond this April.

Also, AS PREDICTED in this video, check out this link to my recent BIG BASS catch after you watch the stocking video. I think you will enjoy the progress! https://youtu.be/_j1udhoJq7w

DIY Installing Duck Impoundment Water Control Structure! Phantom 4 Pro Drone Views to boot!
 
11:20
Check out our latest Upload! Excavator, Tractor clearing trees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7nIEwPTGC4 --~-- A complete look from start to finish on how to install a duck pond/impoundment water control structure. PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO IF YOU ENJOY IT :) Hiring an excavator would have cost about $5,500 to dig these and install the Gates. I did this myself (you could rent a mini excavator for a weekend or two) for the time and fuel. The gates cost about $430 for both.

Project 211 & Bush Hogging in Reverse! Here's WHY. I just saved over $2,000!
 
12:27
Check out our latest Upload! Excavator, Tractor clearing trees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7nIEwPTGC4 --~-- Project 211 Update. The very first step to preparing for the Lob lolly pine planting is to mow the planting lanes. But this is some seriously BAD ground.. Many very large stumps, ranging from 1 inch up to 4 inches! I was going to rent a skid steer and bush hog, but the cost would have been over $2,000 for a week and I'd still be responsible if I damaged anything! So I decided to take on the risk and use my Kioti NX6010 and my Bush Hob BH26. After assessing the ground I decided to do the majority of this project in REVERSE. Watch and see exactly why. Not only can you see much better the hazards ahead (while in reverse) but you will MOW it all down before it has a chance to pop your VERY EXPENSIVE tractor tires! Like and subscribe to follow all of our extreme land management action and habitat improvement projects as we take this new 211 acre Southern Illinois farm and completely transform it into a sportsman's paradise.

Buying Land Negotiating the Deal-Behind the Scenes look at Project 211
 
07:07
Check out our latest Upload! Excavator, Tractor clearing trees! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7nIEwPTGC4 --~-- This is not a super exciting video or anything, it is the phone conversation that I had with our realtor after waiting for 2 days after making several offers on "Project 211," a piece of land that we are trying to buy. If you've never bought land this could be good insight, and heck, even if you have bought land you might find interest in how things happen in other places, with other Realtors, and both buying and selling customers.
