Got the diesel Bush Hog JBI out & finished plowing the garden. Decided to drive it to BIL Fred's, then decided to go onto my cornfield & turn some dirt. Fred was mowing his yard & I hollered at him what I was doing. He parked his mowing 430 like a hot rock, then jumped on his JD430 with plow already attached & took chase. We plowed several furrows, then had to call it a day so he could finish his mowing. Lots of fun!

Sounds like a fun unplanned plow session.

Hmm.....Sounds like you didn't intend to hit the phone lines. I supppose the phone co. didn't follow recommended practice for burial? I remember calling and getting my utilities located before I put in my first garden. Didn't want to hit any major utilities. You gonna get phone service back any time soon?

I looked out at the half-melted snow and the mud and decided to go get my hair cut. You guys are making me jealous.

Offloaded our new Kubota at our place this morning then Put the pallet forks on my John Deere and moved a few heavy things around in the garage, to make room for both John Deeres and the new Kubota. Then I went to the mailbox about a half mile trip down our driveway, with the Kubota...............WEEEEEEEEEEEEE :dancingbanana: :blush2: :thumbs:

They used a ditch witch and its only buried 6-8 inches deep. I did remember the power line that goes to my lamppost and the big lines running to my shop. Got my phone back at 7:30pm. One phone call this morning got me all the parts i needed.

Used the 773 to grade the driveway and fill in a few low spots then jumped on the JD116H after blowing last falls leaves onto the lawn and proceeded to mulch them into tiny bits.

Engine opperated tools used yesterday:
Bobcat 773
JD 116H
Echo back pack blower
Stihl hedge trimmer
It was a GREAT day to be alive in MN, on March 14th, at 75 degrees and sunny ! ! ! :dancingbanana:

I finished runnin the plow thru my garden today, then this afternoon I hooked up the tiller to the back of the Case 446 and took a couple of turns across the top of the garden. Man, I sure do like the Case tractor! Tilling 48 inches wide at a time is fun!

Cleaned, Greased, and oil painted my snowblower and then drove back to the woods where I park it and took it off. Then drove back to the shed and took off my cab. But I saved the best for last.

After all the snow stuff was off it, my 2 yr old and I took a ride around the factory next door.
She loves riding on Daddy's tractor almost as much as I love giving her rides.

Sorry to hear of his passing, but as you said, he isn't suffering and you will see your best friend again someday.

Got home on time (almost) tonight and grabbed the 8" Sears plow I traded with Casey for. It has quite a bit of heavy scale in places, so I took the heavy wire wheel and cleaned it up. There is a little pitting and it will take a while to get rid of it, but it seems to plow pretty well all things considered.

Decided to just go ahead an plow the garden tonight, My youngest one "Helped" but we got it done anyways.:thumbs:

I think I'll get a few minutes to look at my tiller engine tomorrow, if I play my cards right.
