Friday I moved some fire wood from where I had cut it last fall to where it should be stacked. I moved 3 loads this size.

That looks like some good firewood.

I didn't do anything with the tractors this weekend. I thought I was going to get to mow on Sunday but the grass just didn't grow enough to warrant a mowing.

This weekend I put the tiller on the 850 and tilled the garden. The next day I cut some trees and used the 1000 to haul the fire wood back. The Bolens definietly got a workout this weekend.

I got home from Charlotte this morning about 8 o'clock and knew that because of my hours left that I wouldn't have to worry about a work call tonight. Decided to finally change batteries between the 600 and the 800. When I put the battery in the 800 it started up just like it should. I backed it out of the shed and took it for a spin around the yard. The old gal sounded great.:smile1: I put the original battery out of the 800 on the charger for several hours and then put it in the 600. That little rascal fired right up ! It seems that the problem is a pull switch that was installed on the 800,if not left in the off position is just like leaving your key on. This must have completely drained the battery and caused our starting problems all along . If we had only known.:wallbanging: But it sure was great to know that both of these old timers are now ready to run.:bounce:

I mowed yesterday with all four tractors, I had to share seat time so one wouldn't get jealous over the other one. The 125 I need to adjust the deck so it cuts the same height as all the other ones, right now it is about an inch higher then the rest of them. I got the deck adjusted on the 147 and I also got the governor issues fixed. I had my earphones on and a set of ear muffs and that thing still made my ears ring mowing with it and the straight stack.

My favorite though to mow with is my Massey MF12, I just like the way you feel like you sit down lower and the bigger steering wheel, reminds me of when I had my Peterbilt and the long and low feeling. LOL The little MF8 did a great job as usual trimming. I made a quick video mowing with the 12 on almost 2 passes. I gotta upload it to youtube and I will post it in the Massey Forum. It is still striping the grass just as good as the neighbors exmark. :D

Mowed area around house with the Kubota G4200, then mowed the roadside with the Massey 1010. Before mowing with the Kubota, I modified the exhaust outlet. It went straight our the front, so under load, the smoke ended up in my face. So found an old Briggs header pipe, & slash cut end opposite the 90 degree bend, & she slid right inside the muffler outlet. Now the exhaust is directed 4 o'clock downward to the right. The smoke now goes to the side & out, and the small elbow clears the hold in the hood for engine access.

I finshed up my mowing yesterday with the craftsman, then changed the oil in the ford, remounted the sleeve hitch, and started plowing the garden.

I still need to build a lift bar of my sleeve hitch so I was using a piece of chain. I was really impressed with how well the Ford LGT 145 was able to pull the plow.

Edit: Here is a picture. I still have more plowing to do.
