Thanks ,
I took the mini loader pump to Petosky and they installed a new seal for under $40.00 . I put it back together and now it is good to sell. I fixed the drip on the other one so now both of them are ready to sell. Got to make room for garden tractors, ha,ha.

ME THREE !!!! I am so excited to get going on it. I turned 60 in May and I swear I have slowed down to a snails pace this summer .
I guess turning 60 really is rough , :( A fellow showed up yesterday and he might buy the Waldon with the forks. But he don't want the forks because he has two sets already. So I'll make them fit on the on the second Waldon.

Today I rebuilt the center bucket linkage on the Waldon 5000 so it will tilt farther back for loading snow .

Bye, Bye mini loader , sold the Waldon 4100 today , got to make room for garden tractors. Should sell the Waldon 5000 as it gets colder and people think about plowing snow. Also selling the Ski-Doo this fall . Garden tractors !!!!

I sanded and painted seven jd suitcase weights today for the rear of my jd 455 . got to make sure that front snowblower doesn't make it spin. Also worked on the center pins on the Waldon 5000. Got some chains for the jd mini 4020 , got to modify them . Can't wait to push snow with that too this winter.

I got the front forks mounted to the little loader and they work great . Today I shortened some tire chains to fit on my mini 4020 . This should be a fun tractor to plow my driveway with . I had to get other snow removal rigs set up . I sold my big tractor so now this is my big JD :confuse:

Thanks , I can't wait to get back to working on garden tractors , it won't be long now . Who knows what this winter will be like with all these records being broken around the world . I only mowed my lawn three times this whole summer as it was another record dry season in Northern Michigan.

One more week and the model will be ready for paint , I got the tracks done today . I am going to widen the front blade on the mini jd 4020 first after the model is done. When it is angled I want it about four inches wider to push the snow back farther.
