Saturday I got the GT 5000 out and started to the mow the yard, Jenny came out after getting the kids down to nap and wanted to mow, so I let her have at it and I ran the weed eater. She did pretty good and the mower still has all it's wheels (she has a history of knocking gauge wheels off the mower deck). I think she even enjoyed getting to mow.

Ran the disc and spike tooth harrow through the garden with the LGT 165 last night. It was nice to get some seat time and get the smell of dirt in the air.

FINALLY some GT time! After grinding calf corn, I hopped on the Allis 620 w/tiller & tilled the un-planted plowed area of my garden to knock down the tiny weeds emerging. I( tilled slow to make it last a bit longer. I sure do LOVE the turning brakes when lifting a heavy rear load like my tiller. Makes turning a charm. But I need to put the "new to me" used brake discs in the right side that I bought from Bob's Lawn & Garden, as right now I only have left brakes, so I till CCW till I get them working on the right side.

Turning brakes are something I could have used tilling with the tiller in the ground this year. I never raise the tiller for turns, not with manual lift...

Well, let's see...

Got the G10 fired up and ran it around a bit. I need to put a new belt on the Sickle-Mo that's mounted on it.

Fired up the 1256 with the EZ-Vac and ran it around the yard area picking up fallen sticks/branches so I can mow later on. I took it back to an old filled in pond area that I have let go fairly wild to dump the trailer...and promptly got stuck. :blush2: I REALLY knew better since it has turfs on it, but I was close, and didn't take the time to drive back to the house and put the trailer on the 1886 with the Anclas.

SO, I WALKED back, fired up the 1886, and used it to tow the 1256 out of the mud and back to solid ground. Then transfered the trailer and finally got it dumped. Took the 1886 and trailer back to the house, and then had to walk BACK to get the 1256. One of these days I"m gonna learn :D

Went to fire up the CC 1045 to mow, and the battery is low, so it's on charge. Hope it charges enough to get it running in an hour or so, as it looks like rain for the next 2-3 days, and the grass is getting TALL. Oh well, I guess if it gets TOO tall, I can always use the Sickle-MO :D

Yeah, ah know...but I'm agittin OLD :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth:

Anyway, battery on the CC wasn't charging all that good, so I jumped it with the 1256. I think I may need a new charger, danged one I have now is only 30 some years old.

Good thing too...if that grass woulda gotten any higher I woulda had to use the Sickle-Mo, rake it, and bale it :smilewink:

Used the front dozer blade on the A/C919H in the garden to move some dirt around, had a few high spots, low spots. Then took the blade off and put the tiller on and tilled the garden full depth, ran the tiller in a few more spots around the drive and front yard that we are working on. Parked the 919H and took the Allis-Grader to the tilled spots (not the garden) and saved a bunch of raking. Ran the 7016H with the mower deck along both sides of the drive (neighbors grass). So I got to use all three of my workers :dancingbanana:
It was a great tractor day :laughingteeth: .

Finished some garden re-tilling with the Allis 620 & Massey tiller of some spots that were kind of clumped clods. During that, my rear pto wanted to keep running, even though the electric clutch WAS off. That leads to the "What did you do to your tractor today" thread.

Used the MF14 to mow the 2 1/2 acres today. Then the fun started with the weed eater.
