Good pic of the Grandson. Glad he decided he likes them. I like the trailer floor, just park it so water doesn't collect in it.

Thanks , we sure like that little baby. I drilled two holes in the front corners of the trailer floor. Alos put a rear hitch on it for those days i want to hook up three or four trailers at once. This picture has three trailers hooked up but can't see the last wagon. As a little boy i loved hooking up two wagons behind my pedal tractor. Hooking up these three wagons reminded me of that.

Now the next trailer is done I got to finish this mining excavator model . Then I will start roughing in the five bottom plow plans for the mini 4020. I can't wait to build the plow for the 730 either this fall. :laughingteeth:

This model looks like it is going to be a big 'un! I can't wait to see this when it's done! And the plows will definitely be pretty cool too!

Time to try to sell four of my machines. We just put the two mini articulating loaders on Craigslist . We never did Craigslist before .
Also put the jd 455 on there with only 165 hours. And we put my big tractor on there too. If I'm going to get serious about making mini tractors and implements to sell got to thin out the herd.

Finally a cool afternoon so i decided to convert the old single stage blower from the jd 430 to my jd 455 . Looks like it is going to work great !! Don't like single stage blowers as well, but hated to take it to the junk .
