Been bush hogging pasture today.  Steep hills, but very familiar with them.  And can you believe it....hogged a few hours & NO, and I mean NO, absolutely NO problems!  Nothing broke, nothing died!  Dad hogged the dry cow pasture, and several acres chopped silage ground, and neither of us had any issues.  Makes me nervous!  :smilewink:

I bet that was fun to get loaded and unloaded.  Sure hope you had some friends or a block and tackle. :D

Nope! All by my lonsome. Used 1.5 ton host, used rafters there and at home to lift up and back up truck underneath it. Wife and Sister-in-law standing by in case I screwed up.

Is the lathe a 12 x 42?  Be careful with it....they can sure lay a hurting or way worse on you fast!  Good it's a flat belt drive, as they are more forgiving if you got caught in it.  The flat belt will slip off the crowned pulleys.

Daniel ...are you sure you were on the right farm?

 

:rolling:   Yeah, maybe I was lost!  Today I milked, then hooked a 2745 to the silage dump wagon.  Time to clean it out & prep the bottom for storage.  Then checked Jeep fuel pressure.....great pressure.  Then started monkeying with wiring.  This time, when I got to the computer, if I tugged or pushed on the center connector, she would stumble or even die!  Onto something.  The last time it was definitely the fuel pump, but this time I think it's in the computer itself.  I am going to closely check the harness connectors, then pull the computer apart.  I did this the last time, but found nothing, but then it ended up the fuel pump then anyway.  

  Then shot to town to pick up a gallon of rust converter for the silage wagon bottom treatment.  When I got back, I finished cleaning stuck wet silage & chipping off rust flakes from the wagon floor, and it's drying as I type.  After lunch when it's completely dry, I'll apply the rust converter.  $100/gallon, but compared to $15 or more for 10 1/2oz spray bomb, it's a bargain.

  This afternoon Scott (sacsr) will arrive with a WWII trailer I'm storing for the buyer from Missouri.  He'll pick it up here in a week or 2.
