It certainly was a beautiful day in our neck of the woods - until the storms and flood warnings. I am glad you got to enjoy it with your grand-babies.

California ,

Those persimmons are beautiful. They appear to have some Japanese linage as they are larger than the American persimmon. And I'll bet they are far less astringent.

We have mainly Yates, Prok and Ichi-Ki-Kei-Jiro (Asian). Wish we were closer neighbors so I could obtain a cutting or two of the Hachiya for grafting.

Thanks for the beautiful pictures.

Thanks. I could mail you cuttings if you wish, just PM the mailing instructions.

These Hachiya persimmons are astringent until they are dead ripe, as soft as a traditional tomato, soft enough you could poke a finger into one. At that point they are like a jar of jam. My wife eats one daily scooping it out with a spoon. Dad did likewise. People tell me traditional use is slice and dry them for later baking or snacks.

We planted a Fuyu recently and get some 50 persimmons from it at this point. Those are less astringent and have the texture of an apple. The friends we give fruit to, mostly want Fuyus.

These Hachiyas are vigorous growing trees. When harvesting, every year I saw off branches that are heavy with fruit above what I can reach from a 14 ft ladder then strip the fruit after that branch is entangled lower down.

The persimmons ripened early this year. In contrast to the naked trees in my photos above, harvest will be like this 2010 photo with the leaves still on the trees.

Well...... BIL showed me this link... and offered to pay difference, if and when I need a new machine. I have no intentions of spending $ now though. I need to save for a few more years..
That diesel does look interesting and sort of " purdy "though.. collie

Tell your BIL he already owes you the difference because you already have the best machine!
This is informative to me though. Iíve ridden many artic cat snow machines and I had no idea they were bought by Textron, which is what you have here. Probably a tweaked re badged stampede?
It would be interesting to see which model they sell more of the gas or diesel.

Good to see CAT diving into the market.

I am curious if they sourced the diesel engine or created their own CAT diesel that small.

Also, I was surprised to see how long the rear swing arms are.

Looks like belt drive, electric power steering and I don't see a power dump bed but a electric hydro assisted is probably available.
