2019
2020
In late 2019 and early 2020 clearing work was completed on the areas shown below with a loaned bull dozer and immense amounts of time by Joe Pscolka.
 
In mid 2020 a large John Deere tractor was loaned to TRIPOLI Pittsburgh and clearing/mowing was completed in a 5-10 acre area around the range head. Unfortunately we only had it for a single day.



2021
Early 2021 brings the acquistion of a DR Pro 44T, Pull-behind brush hog mower for field work.
 
The DR has a 16.5 HP engine, 44" cutting deck and can be pulled behind a variety of vehicles.
Later 2021 Luck shined again with generous donations from a number of members and the purchase of this Ford 1910 Tractor.
 
The Ford has a 32 HP Diesel engine with a 60" Belly mower deck and can easily pull the DR as well as other attachments currently under investigation.
