Default Smokey Engines in the Fire Season

This past winter we spent allot of time clearing and burning off ready for the fire season. All the burnoffs we held were notified to the relevant authorities.

So, I was a little embarrassed when driving the McDonald roller down the driveway I came across the local fire chief and two fire trucks. The fire chief approached the roller and said "I think you are our grass fire."

From now on we will be reporting the starting of the roller to the relevant authorities.

Regards,

Wayne

Hi Anton,

Funny that, a Dutchman once drove the same roller into the only post in a 3 acre cleared paddock.

Cheers,

Wayne
