Default Groomer Maintence

Just giving you guys a little to look at mid-week. This work was done 2 weeks ago, and was basically after our first week of grooming - which didn't go well.
The first full weekend the groomer clipped a stump in the thin trails out at the end of the Caffey, and ripped the hitch off. Randy and I took 6 hours to repair the hitch and do the seasonal maintenance on the #6 tractor. Then on the following Tuesday, the groomer clipped what I believe was the leftover of a stump on our new section of Cedarville trail. It id what turned out to be major damage to the big drag. Randy and I spent 4 hours on Friday night, fixing the groomer blade, and then another 12 hours on Saturday repairing the big drag.
All in all a ton of work, and not a great way to start off the season, but things have run a lot smoother since. Enjoy the pics of Randy hard at work, and a big thank you to Lance at George's Body Shop who continually donates heated work space.

Tower that hooks to the tilt cylinder sheared off. Too much pressure on one side I guess.
