Alright gang, get your nominations in. With our upcoming software update we are going to have to do our best to make this work. We will end up with a shorter period for voting on this one. We are going to let nominations run until we either get 10 or until the current site is closed for maintenance. In which case once the software update is finished and the forums are open again (for Casey it will be two weeks and for the rest it will be about 24 hours max) we can commence with the voting.

Well, I guess I could nose it up to a brick wall and go full throttle high gear until something goes. Otherwise I'm out for this month. Just got done fixing all the broken stuff.
And I bought it that way.

Hey, George, does 'bent' work for 'broke'? If so I can get in on this.

Well......
A few weeks before Thanksgiving, I needed to travel with a tractor to our campsite and cut the brush and seedlings. I was going to use my two wheel Gravely, but it refused to start and I broke the recoil starter. So, I cranked one of my New-to-me Masseys and went to load it. Half-way into the trailer, the ramp broke. I found a board to replace the broken one, but when I went to screw the boards down so they wouldn't shift, the phillips bit broke on my impact driver. Once I was at the campsite, I managed to get all the brush cut down, but kept wincing at the clangs that would come from under the deck. I later found numerous dings in my mower blades that had to be ground out. During the last 5 minutes of cutting, the engine began to labor and the belt driving the mower began to slip and smoke. The idler pulley that engages the drive belt had locked up. Somehow, through all this, I never thought about nor wanted to take a picture. Guess I'm out of the running.

Howard
PS HAPPY 100th TO ME!!

I HAD (note the key word there) some pictures of a transaxle that I blew apart on the old Jacobsen Chief we had once upon a time. House cleaning time on my hard drive a while back and I thought "why do I need to keep these?". There you go, see, never through anything away!! May have a back up copy on CD will have to take a look.

It can be anything that you deformed or broke and it could have happened at any time, as long as you have the pics to go with it.

George,
Just to clarify,do you have to have a photo of the tractor/implement,or would a photo of just the broken or bent part do?

I guess a picture of the bent or broken part would be alright. Be nice to have a picture of the tractor it came off of but if not then I would say it is alright. I think we are going to have to be a little flexible for this months nominations.
