I bought mine about 20 weeks ago. It said shipping would start in 12-20 weeks.
Well it's been 20 weeks now. They just emailed me back saying 10 more weeks.
So that's fucked but whatever shit happens.
The shitty part is their website still says 10 to 20 weeks. They are blatantly lying to their customers. If I have to wait 10 weeks for an order placed 20 weeks ago how can they possibly be telling people they may get their orders from today in 10weeks? They almost for sure will get it after 20.
And if they are so back ordered why not give me a refund since they clearly have plenty of people to sell units to? Fucking trash..
Been in business 4 years. We have 3 fulltime employees, and minimal overhead. I own everything, no debt. Looking to buy a Bobcat 595T and try to delve into new construction. I have 20k Saved up in the business account, and payments are 1250/month for 4 years. It cost 400 a day to rent one. We are booked out a month for business, and the company is clearing 2500/week, last week we cleared 4000. Is buying a bobcat premature? Thoughts and experience are appreciated. Leasing isnt an option.
Some backstory: my husband and I love all things outdoors. Hiking, fishing, camping, just Being outdoors and away from the hustle and bustle of life. We take a trip for New Years every year, it’s our one holiday that we don’t spend with family and just take time for ourselves. This year we found an Airbnb in some Colorado mountains. A cute little fireplace-warmed studio cabin with the closest other dwelling being a mile away. Romantic and lovely right?
So our super relaxing secluded vacation in the mountains of Colorado turned out to be anything but. Buckle up kids, it’s a long and icy ride.
Not only was there way more snow than we were expecting(>3ft, we were expecting 1ft but there was a massive storm a few days before we got there) but the car we were driving, which my wonderful mom let us borrow so we wouldn’t have to try and get our little sonata up a mountain, was only front-wheel-drive. We were IN the mountains. Lots of snow. Lots of ice. See where this is going? The Airbnb description said that any SUV could make it into and out of the property no problem regardless of driving capabilities. Lol.
Our trusty steed got stuck in a snow bank on the private road about 1/4 mile away from the Airbnb cabin on our way in. After carrying all of our stuff from the car to the cabin, we let our host know that we had more or less arrived, but the snow had decided the car had gone far enough. Our host, we’ll call him cowboy because of his choice of headwear(built in headlamp included), happily offered to pull the car out of the snow bank so we could park it in front of the cabin. Cowboy would be best described as “happy-go-lucky Canadian redneck” and was FLOORED that we were SO CLOSE to getting our car to the cabin. “AAAAHHHHH you were so close!!! Just barely stuck in there hey? No sweat just glad for the excuse to meet you face to face!” After Cowboy pulled us out of that mess we parked our steed in front of the cabin and decided we had enough of driving in the snow for the day. We opted to skip going into town for groceries and a meal for now and just had the cookies my mom made and sent with us for dinner.
Cut to the next morning and we are starving and ready to get a hot breakfast and groceries for the rest of our stay. We had seen some MASSIVE paw prints around in the snow and wondered if maybe there were some wolves around. We knew there was a bear and mountain lion warning, but nothing about wolves. And then we met them. Two very fluffy, very large,... keep reading on reddit ➡

So I’m about to give up on my bricked bobcat that’s been sitting with a yellow light, no Bluetooth connectivity and not found by IP address that I’ve been trying to fix since early October with no help. Other than tossing this thing in the ocean to see if it floats what else could I do with it, does bobcat even entertain returns of DEFECTIVE CRAP.?.
I've done an extensive amount of research on this property, the historical value is through the roof. Everything from the largest Cherokee village in Hamilton County at one point(and the cemetery is a burial mound), to Union General Col.Robert Minty camping 1000 troops on the property. This place has sooo much potential its insane. I think it should be made an Historical Park, that way it can be used for recreational purposes and preserved for future generations.
Not to mention the wildlife thats out there needs to be protected, I know the family and I've walked the property more times then i can possibly count, there are hundreds of turkey roasting in its trees, you will literally see a raptor of 50+ turkeys everyday, and the whitetail population is boomimg there. The Bobcat, Deer, Black Bear, Turkey, Crayfish, and even quail populations should be managed to thrive there. The 3 beautiful creeks and all of the old houses too. You could stack that place with historical markers and trails maybe a soccer field, and then manage it well and call it a day. People dont really know whats happened there and it truly would be a shame to lose it to sewage.
Has anyone heard of the Rhea County Spartans?? The all female group of spys during the Civil War that gathered on the farm because they were led by Mary McDonald🤔 What about the Masonic Lodge that was on the property and got blown away by a tornado?
Both sides have control over the farm during the Civil War because they needed Benjamin McDonald to mill for the troops. There was a field hospital there, and a Union artillery battery. According to family hearsay there was also a Skirmish on one of the hills of the farm, it was nicknamed the Battle of Strawberry Hill by the McDonald's because the hill ran red with blood after.
Over 19 Cherokee house foundations found along one creek(thats not even counting the other two creeks)
There's also coke ovens on the property from the coal mining businesses like the Montague Coal company that were in the Graysville area during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
I need help spreading the word for this, I'm willing to go to lengths to save this place, we can't let the mayor bulldoze and level that place, the McDonald's were some of the first settlers of Hamilton County, let's preserve and teach their story
It really does, I swear!
For context I'm a Refuse Driver (Garbage man) & today I was on food waste. After I'd tipped I was checking the wagon for any defects when I spotted a lone pea balanced on the lifts.
I said "hey look, an escaPEA"
No one near me but it didn't half make me laugh for a good hour or so!
Edit: I can't believe how much this has blown up. Thank you everyone I've had a blast reading through the replies 😂
So I had the craziest experience while driving through Georgia last night going to Tennessee. For the first time ever I was experiencing hallucinations while driving in Georgia Wednesday night where it was foggy as fuck.
I'm a student truck driver for a company I'm trying to get in since it takes 3 weeks and this is week 3 for me before Christmas. So I was working the graveyard shift and had to drive all the way from Savanah, Georgia to Saint Paul, Minnesota since my Instructor drives all day and I drive all night to make it like a working clock.
I started my shift around 9:00 and would see if I can get to Indianapolis by morning. Around 11:00 came along and I was pretty much in Atlanta and for about 50 miles you could only see about 3 feet in front of you or less. Driving a big truck in fog while there's construction blockades made it even more stressful (Luckily not many people were out at that time being it was a work night)
But this is where shit starts to get crazy to where I would never expect to happen in my life...
Pretty much while I was driving I saw stuff manifest on the road and then dissappear, one of them being a shadow many or two running across the road in front of me. There was also a Bobcat work excavator that manifested right in front of me in the dense fog and I swear I hit my brakes pretty hard until I hit it and dissappeared (like once I got in close contact it vanished in the fog)
But it doesn't stop there when then voices in my head like it was general conversations people would have everyday and so on. In my head and for some reason I was responding to them with like "Yeah" and "Ok" then I realized quickly saying "Who the fuck am I talking to?"
I think the scariest part was that when I left Atlanta and getting closer to Tennesee I swear... I felt the presence of a man sitting in the passenger chair of my truck. I couldn't get a good description of the man because I only saw some of him in the corner of my eye while driving. If I remember he was wearing a black trench coat and a fedora like hat with a white beard. But whenever I would turn my head over this presence wasn't sitting there anymore until my eyes were back on the road only to see him in the corner of my eye while I was focusing on the road (it wasn't my trainer because he was in the back sleeping since he worked earlier in the day)
Finally once I got to Tennessee it stopped for the rest of the trip and had to retrace my thoughts on what just happened exactly. I ha... keep reading on reddit ➡
4 good days and then flat lined… I never knew free money can be so aggravating 😅
In June, I found myself on the very edge of losing the last of my friends, my wife, and my career.
I got some help about six months ago, with detox and a rehab stint. I saved my marriage, and my job. I’ve been sober for that whole time. There’s been ups and downs, and it’s been difficult. I wanted to share a couple things that sobriety has allowed me to achieve in the last 6 months. My life’s not perfect, but it’s infinitely better than it was.
I’ve cycled over 1000 miles. I started a consulting firm. I joined a start up company on the side and am helping them grow. I got a raise at work. I went to an NHL game. I traveled to a couple different big cities. I went hunting and my new dog got to retrieve her first ducks. I saw a bobcat in the mountains. I went boating with friends on the river. In short, I’m living life again.
What are some cool things you’ve done in your sobriety so far?
