After doing the engine and running it in i thought id have my first go at ploughing on a garden tractor:

Not that neat but it was only really to test the tractor as ive never worked it, and shine the plough up.

The link works for me. Thanks for the video. Your Ride A Matic looks and works great. :thumbs: No problem on the spelling. I am a member of one foreign forum and they have to put up with my incorrect language for which I am grateful.

Looking good there.

Sure wish my side yard was that "dry" right now :D

We've had so much rain that even as light as I am, 11 stone, if I stand still I can feel my self starting to sink.

Worse than that, I have an 1886 stuck there:mecry:

James,

Good to see you over in this site, as i have been watching your tractor in another group. I dont see any problem with your spelling of the word plough, as it seems correct either way. Like to see some more video of you tractor working.

Your tractor does a very nice job of ploughing on your video. The spell checker on my MAC always rejects plowing so I think that in Canada your spelling is the correct one. Thanks for the video.
