Thanks , Considering it has only been 6 months since I bought my first project tractor to think how many hours of enjoyment I have already had. GROOVY , ha,ha,ha.
I bought two of those little loaders in one week and I have had so much fun with them. I sold one of them and Deb talked me into keeping the other one. I'm glad she did especially now with front forks and a cab.

DANGIT, THAT LOOKS COLD.........WAY TOO COLD FOR MY BLOOD!!!!

That loader looks great Don and it looks like it works well too. Never had enough snow to shovel, much less enough to use a loader on. I would have to add lots and lots of heat to the cab if it were mine.

I really like those pipe edges, Don! I might actually make one, I think it might help keep my gravel in the driveway!

They are not fool proof. I drove the loader out back to try it out and put the bucket down easy thinking no more dug up lawn and at first it worked great but then it took a dive into the sod. Deb was video taping it and Deb laughed and I almost cried , ha,ha. I put a pipe on the rear pull scraper too and it worked excellent the last two days in the grass. I'm still glad I put them on and I know they will work great once the ground firms up just a little bit.

I may put heat in the cab if I mount a self propelled snowblower on the front loader arms. But for now just having the wind off me is wonderful.

Todays project progress shows the new chute extension done on the snowblower and my progress on the new snowplow frame for the tractor sitting out in the snow. Two more days the 455 tractor will be back in the front garage and the project tractor will be inside the shop. Because of the snow and slippery roads again today we postponed going to pickup my next little $100.00 14 hp hydrostatic buy . I bought it sight unscene :wallbanging: If it runs great like they say and it has a new battery and drives great I can't go wrong for $100.00 All four tires are good .

Those rigs look great Don and you can have all the snow you like ! I only want some for a few weeks before and after Christmas (LOL what a dreamer )
How did your 5 bottom plow turn out? I may have missed it :( I've been awful busy and only have a few minutes here and there to check on things ;)
