Our 8'x14' wood deck out back was rotting so we decided it was time to update. We also got rid of our above ground pool last fall so we needed to do some work in that area.

Decided on a 16' x 30' stamped patio and turn the old pool area into a sitting area with fire pit. Made some good progress the last couple days.

Hoping to pour Monday.

This quarantine has been amazing. My son has stepped up. Making me proud. He has helped remodel a bathroom, work on rental properties, mow. . .yesterday he used the hedge trimmers. He got "Pruning 101". Today he emptied the remaining old fence and some pallets from one of our equipment trailers. He will be wire wheeling and painting it soon. He IS getting paid. Got to motivate a kid somehow. He turns 16 next month. A year ago he begrudgingly helped. He was not a lot of help. I'm amazed at how he has stepped up. Maybe gas powered hedge trimmers and sawzalls should have been introduced sooner. Lol

Couple projects completed tonight, another uncovered. I overhauled my sprayer after 5 years of use. Replaced the filters and nozzles on the boom, new pressure gauge to replace a broken one, new o-ring in the hand wand, seal tape on all the seals. I'll pressure test it with water tomorrow.

Ordered a battery for the quad after 2 years of pull starting. Installed it and the hitch receiver tonight. Unfortunately, I smelled burning oil and she dripped on the garage floor. She was might low on oil. Looks like after 20 years, she may need a seal/gasket. Common failure after lots of pull starts. Project for another day. The hitch attachment will be handy for pulling my little trailer, but also rooting out logs and such.

Hitches on quads. I was never a believer until I had one. Won't go without one now. You will be happy with your decision. Even just for shuffling trailers around or toting one. It gets them away from the rear tires. Reduces tire/tongue rubbing. Works amazing pulling my big ass lawn roller.

I agree with, Phil. You will get stuck with it though. Only downfall to having them. At least that quad is small enough to man handle it. Just prepare yourself to catch on something you used to clear without issue.
