Allroad got a workout last weekend
« on: August 23, 2005, 10:17:59 PM »
still doing landscaping, and brought this home for the weekend:



it is a 1,500# trencher attachment for the bobcat so I could dig trenches for the sprinkler system.  only about 1/2 the allroad's towing capacity, but still was a pretty good workout.



the sad part is that due to rains on Sunday, I didn't get done, so get to pick it up again on friday for another round...

I wonder how many other people actually put their Allroads to use...

You should upgrade to a 4.2. Probably great towing capacity. :)

nah, 2.7T 6sp is faster than the 4.2 which only comes with an auto.  and that is before a chip - now only 3500 miles away.  :-)

oh, and towing capacity doesn't change with the 4.2 either.

It is fun to have a tow vehicle that is so fast in its own right. :D

Got ya.  Well, it is an awesome car either way; I loved the idea when it came out of an A6 wagon with push-button adjustable height, cool two-tone interior, an S4 engine, AND a 6-speed manual.  Doesn't get much better.
