I know this is a GT forumn,but I had so much fun today with my bigger Farm Tractor I have to post it. As I have stated before I have restored a 55 Ford 600 tractor in honor of my son that passed away from a stroke 6 years ago,well today 1 of his sons (my grandson) and I took that tractor and a borrowed one just like it on a 50 mile tractor with the Florida Flywheeelers tractor club. It was an honor to have my graandsaon drive his Fathers tractor and I drove the borrowed one.


That's awsome I love hearing things like that.

About a year and a half ago my Dad got diagnosed with ALS and now he pretty much turned into a rock he can't do nothing, he cant even talk, but before he got to this point he took me out to the barn and stood next to his Farmall A that he restored and said, "I want you to have my tractor to give to my grandson when he gets old enough". My son and my Dad had a storng bond, they were like two peas in a pod, and it was because of tractors and the garden. My son is three and a half now and loves that tractor we sit on it and he pretends he is driving it, he calls it his tractor but he don't really understand yet but some day he will know that his grand dad gave it to him.

WOW what a legacy for your son.Most of the tractors at the club have a story of the family ties to the tractor.

Got my Massey 1855 w/FEL out to cut the angle in the dirt for first layer of giant concrete blocks for my other silage pit wall. Good to have some GT seat time!

I cleared snow! Third time this year, but the first time it really needed to be done. When I have some time and some long underwear that aren't soaked from ankle to knee, I have to clear the path from where I park my tractor in back to around the front...kept getting stuck. That's a time-consuming job though, so it'll wait.

Got a little seat time this afternoon mowing grass. Didn't want to over do it so I drank a cold one and will do the weed eating tomorrow.

Finally got the rings seated real good in my Ford LGT 165 today. Used it and the box blade down at the shop to cut better drainage around the building. While I was at it, I smoothed the parking area some. Didn't get pics, but if you want I'll add some tomorrow.. Ran it for about 6 hrs. Used no oil and only 1 1/5- 2 Gallons of gas. She did great once I took the float lift bar off and used the one for down pressure. Some of this rock was about 4" diameter and mashed in real good. Teeth did excellent, though I may add an extra set of holes so they don't dig so deep at times. I had a chunk of RR Iron on the blade for weight. It's about 44" long.

Sounds like that blade's working well for you Kenny. What do you think that 44" stick of rail weighs?
