We are way behind on seat time in our neck of the woods. We are not in a snow belt but usually got more snow than we did this year. As for your rude neighbors, a fellow I used to work with would have said that they have brown eyes.It's from having their heads stuck up their butt and not seeing what is going on around them.Enjoy your evening and thaw out those cold toes.

Used the 782 to pull the trailer (lots of trips) with cut up trees that came down on the fence in yesterdays storm. The big tractors and p/u would never get across the fields and up the hill as wet as it is here, so the Cub saved the day (we ran almost a whole tank of fuel thru it today we made so many trips) The last time a tree got on my fence the bull was seven miles up the way visiting before we found him. Great seat time today. My one son was home from college helped with the running loads back to the wood pile and with loading the trailer. We were very fortunate the two trees in the northeast corner pasture and a patio table are all the damage we had.

Well I removed the snow thrower, and mounted the mower deck. I cut the grass for the first time this year.

Used the 70I & 10p cart to haul another load of firewood to the shop this afternoon.  Then made a lap around the yard before putting it in the shed!  ~~  Lowell

My youngest was BEGGING for a tractor ride...sorta. He was there, so I put his shoes on and took him out. We mowed the back yard together with the Massey 8. That tractor really does a nice job of mowing.

FINALLY! After months of waiting for snow we got 8 inches of lovely, heavy, wet snow last night. I got to plow snow today! I used the Speedex S24 and the Husqvarna GT24K54 both just to make sure one didn't get jealous. Unfortunately it is a work day so I didn't get to play long. Just did my driveway. Would have liked to have done all the driveways in the neighborhood.
I'd say that's it for the year though.

SNOW? Spent 4 hours mowing then a couple weed eating around the trees and fence line. It's 75 degrees here and not a cloud in the sky, just right for yard work.

I got the de-carbon-ize done on the onan 18 hp. in my '83 J D 318 today, then I hooked up a 3-point sears moldboard 10" plow to it (had to make my own center link for it) and plowed my garden. Whew-hoo! Seat time! The old onan still smokes some, under load, but runs ok.

I had some time to get back in the garden today. I've been wanting to build a raised potatoe bed this year, see if my potatoes do better and are less prone to beetle infestation. Plus it will be easier to dig them out, just pull off one side of the bed and out they come. Here is some video of me moving dirt with my faithful Gravely.

Hey Coldone!
Yes, I added the supports. One of the handlebars was cracked when I got the tractor, and though I welded it and reinforced it, I felt like that area was a potential weak spot. I built my own scoop, but I like the factory one slightly better. Anyway, I put those re-enforcements on and since they really aren't in my way, they stay on all the time.

Got the Ford LT16 out of the shed today, I put a battery back in it, turned it over o couple of times, and it fired right up. Hooked up my Craftsman de-thatcher. Dropped it a little lower than it is meant to and drug it around the back yard for a couple of hours. It does a good job of scratchin the hard dirt to prep for new grass seed. Threw down some seed and starter fertilizer too. I will put some straw down tomorrow. It was nice gettin out on the Ford today. Had a good time.

Used my Massey w/FEL to carry pairs of 125lb protein blocks to the silage feeders. Two of the protein pails fit perfect in the bucket.
