Wat's the high roof part for? I figure you did it to lift truck beds up in the shop to work on?

That 12 feet was part of the original shed, and had double plated trusses, so I left it that way so I could put in a 2 post lift later.

Hey Uncle, just visited the Bush Hog Corporation Restore again, I love going back and see them pic's. I got a question, did you happen to take pic's of other BH tractors while you were there? Or did were there any other tractors there? I no you were bad sick that day, was curious. If so I wanted to try to talk you into posting them :-)

There were no more other than all the parts I brought home. Later they told me they had a partial tractor they found tucked behind stuff, and I hoped to go get it, but hasn't worked out.

Today is a mixed bag of work. Beat bad feed out of a self feed bin, then pulled manure spreader out of calf barn and parked in free stalls. Then got the Massey 1100 with 10 foot Bush hog out and serviced for pasture clipping after lunch. Supposed to rain tomorrow, so I'll finish shop rafters then. Gonna do some mowing around pits in a few minutes.

I mowed our road frontage, which is about 1/2 a mile of what I can do, and also around silage pits.  Then I sprayed out 15 gallons of roundup around barns & pits.  Got the 362 Massey hooked to the grinder/mixer so I can get the old feed out of it when time allows.  Looks like some of it caked on me, so I'll have to clean it out good.

I got the field down by the road to the creek bush hogged, but this is the last job for the Massey 1100 until I get the new power steering & rear PTO seal installed.  Started bleeding oil on the steep uphill out the PTO seal.  The rest of the pasture fields I intend to use the 15' batwing mower and it requires one of the 2745's.

Got the rest of the bad feed beat to the bottom of the bin.  The calves will noodle out what good feed there is mixed in.  Then I sprayed a 2nd 15 gallons of roundup to get things pretty well taken care of as far as spraying goes.  I am now done for the day.  Fixing to have a couple hot dogs & some baked beans for supper!  :thumbs:

Matched seals on the computer for the Massey 1100 and got them ordered at my local auto parts store.  Have to pick up more hy/trans fluid too.

Got the last of the rafter brackets installed!  :dancingbanana:  Bad thing is, my shoulders are killing me.  Haven't taken a pain pill in weeks, but gonna take one now.  Just a few pain killers left, so using them only when I really need them.

  The scissor lift is an awesome tool.  There was no way to do this job without some sort of man-lift.  And for the price I got it for...double awesome!

  Rain was supposed to greet me when I woke, but it didn't, so it was bloody hot up next to that tin roof, but I wanted this job behind me, and it is.  Rain should arrive sometime this afternoon.

I would imagine that scissor lift would be a great tool for a job like that.  That lift will come in handy when you put the ceiling up after the tin is replaced.  Glad you have it done and behind you now.

I've been cleaning up the shop, putting away building supplies and such in the milking parlor. Before long I think I'll take on some repair jobs if I can get some. GT's, lawn mowers, small farm tractors...most anything. I need to feel it out asap to see if I can make enough at it to be worth fooling with. It would be great if it works out so I could make all my living right here at the farm.
