    Newbie here.

    Hey guys, I've been reading and learning from this site for a while now and finally decided to post an intro and hopefully start to contribute
    I'm a corn fed ranch boy from Montana lol I've hauled scrap steel from the ranch for many years whenever I was short on cash. Lately, however, I have become more serious about scrapping as a second source of income. I mostly do farm equipment and vehicles but recently started diving into copper recovery and e-scrap thanks to this forum
    My scrapping vehicle is an 85 International S1700 with a boom crane (this is my "moneymaker")
    working on getting a diesel pickup but between my little car and my big truck I get by.



    Shout out to anyone else here scrapping in Montana (pm me)

    Billings, Grew up in the southeast (powder river county) on a ranch though. Back pasture fence line was the Montana/Wyoming line.

    Spent a summer scrapping in the Harlowton to Twodot area a long time ago. Sure was a lot of scrap around there!
