I've never driven a Cub, but I think the MF12 Hydro has a speed of between 7 and 8 mph full forward.


So it's about the same then.

I hooked up the tiller to the Case 446 and did some tilling in my garden.

Yep! Spring fever. I got the 2320 fired up and scarified the driveway and parking area. Then I traded the scarifier for the rear blade and turned it backwards and dragged the whole thing to get a nice smooth finish. The tractor performed great. I put Amsoil hydro fluid in it last fall and it definitely runs cooler. After 45minutes of scarifying in low range 4wd the lines to the transmission oil cooler were barely warm. Great day here and some great seat time!

Mowed the 2+ acres and when I got the weed eater out I couldn't keep it running. I'll have to pull the carb off today and see what I can do. Don't you just love it when the little woman wants to ask why you didn't do something when you're glowing red because something wouldn't work the way it should. "Why don't you just get a new one?" Because it would cost upward of $300 and all this one needs is a little TLC.

I never have any luck with gas weed-eaters or chainsaws. I know it's because I don't use them enough, so they get all gummed up. My solution is to go electric...then they don't care if they only get used a couple times a year.

Spring is here. I had some spring cleanups to do so Friday I took the RT5000 and power broom to clean the rocks from the snow plow first. Chased the rocks with the power broom then took the 5000 with the dozer blade and leveled them into the alley. Saturday I used the Exmark with tine rake and vacuum bagger to rake and clean 3 yards. Today I used the 5518 to till 2 gardens. Got one more yard to clean up and am waiting to get more calls on tilling. Mowing will start in a week or so.

I mowed yesterday with the MTD LT. Good to get a little seat time for a change. This has been a great little mowing machine for a freebie!

Had a few junk trailers sitting around one is a old 50s pop up camper was going to scrap it along with the old rotted out dump trailer but after dragging them up to the garage to chop em up i notice that the pop up camper has a nice C channel frame under it so i think I'm going to make me a new trailer I think with some new wheel bearings and some tires It could actually be road worthy. But al and all the yard looks much better without the trailers parked right in the middle of the lawn, spent the last 20 years mowing around them I through down some seed it will be nice to just cut strait through there.

I saw an ad for one of those walk behind single row seeder planters on craigslist last night, it had a good price, all 6 plates with it. Talked to the guy that had it and went and bought it today. When I got back home I got out the Case 446 one more time and finished tilling my garden. I tried out the new seeder and got my corn planted too. Why I waited until now to own one of these seed planters Is a great question. That thing rocks!

Used my L130 to suck up leaves in the back 2 1/2 the 130 did pretty good on the side of the hill I was a little nervous but After one or two passes i felt pretty good about it. I rolled a SS12 on the side of the hill that is why i use a newer tractor i want all the safety's working just in case, I want the machine to shut down if my butt isn't the seat, but it looks pretty good.

Well me an Punkin the wards walkbehind got a start on tilling the gardens today. Of course as it always seems to happen I ran out of gas and there was none in the gas tank. :mecry: It all got use to mow. So off to town to get gas. I did get one finished and it amazes me how well that machine does. It doesn't even work hard at it. It is a pleasure till I have to turn around and go back the other way. :smile1:

Took the front blade off the 2320 and put the loader back on. Used it to scoop up some gravel that was piled up from plowing snow. Moved the gravel to a trail that needed some. Got out the tilller and tilled both our small gardens. It's cold and windy here. We're supposed to get 4" of snow and ice pellets tonight!

I used the 70 I & 10P to haul tools & supplies to the chipper cage. And the 314 to bring the 10 HP Troybilt chipper shredder down. ~~ Lowell
