Used the 1046 today to drag all my "currently out of service" tractors onto the trailer. Been storing them and my daughter moved into a rental with a garage 3 times the size of my storage unit. So to help her and me out I am renting her garage for twice what I was paying the storage. Pulled the Wheel Horse Raider 9, JD model 70, WH 856, WH 400 tonight. Tomorrow will load the 1056, another 856 & hopefully a B100 hydro, a stallion and a couple racer chassis.

Yesterday I went over to a friends house and used the gravely 5460 (10 hp 2 wheel) to cut back some brush along a dam on her property. I really didn't expect it to take long, just a pass back and across on the back slope. Unfortunately, what was there was more honeysuckle and other vines than straight weeds. Ended up having to drive straight into the undergrowth about 6 feet, then back out, move over and repeat. Saved a turtle, killed a snake. The only difficult part was when I was nosing around in the undergrowth, knew there was a sapling that I wanted to take down, but couldn't get the deck over it. When I finally did, it cut the sapling about a foot in the air, then promptly wrapped a thumb sized vine around the blade. The two things combined were able to halt the blade and trap my tractor with the deck in the air and hung up on the sapling. She had some long handled loppers, so I cut the vine and the sapling down, untangled all the other vines that had wrapped around the deck skids and went back to work. I also cut a path back into her woods where her brother was trying to cut up some trees that were taken down by a tornado last year.

Took the Bolens 1256 with the Haban Sickle-Mo down to the airfield yesterday.

Did some trimming around the pond, and a few other places.

Didn't get to finish, as I sheared two small 'bolts' that connect the pitman arm to the cutter bar.

Good news is that I found the 'bolts' at TSC this morning. I'll get it fixed, and finish some time later this month.

We got about 3/4" of rain Friday night and about 1/2 Saturday afternoon. The lane was needing some of the packed in rock brought back to the surface. All I had was the 318 and a section of harrow with two concrete blocks wired on.
Aftr the rain the roadbed was soft enough it did not do a bad job of pulling up some gravel.
I was encouraged enough I'm toying with bulding a small land level for the JD.

That reminds me of my dad telling me about the days when the pitman arms were made of wood. Breaking a pitman arm and his uncle Willard cutting down a green sapling and making a pitman arm.

Got the Massey 1855 w/fel out & with the loader forks, hauled all the old house scraps to the dumpster. Then used it to place two 200lb protein blocks into the concrete cow feeders. Then after Josh blew a rear tire on the Massey 175 cleaning the cow lots, a pile of old silage was still in the push off ramp to the pit. So the little 1855 came into play again to finish pushing that into the manure pit.

Used the SS12 and GT5000 for cleanup duty at the show grounds. Used the cart to carry water (just to be safe) Hauled off the last of the fire wood, loaded my fire ring and used the snow blade to spread the ashes around.

Then Ryan and I got some seat time driving them home.

Used the Massey 1010 to pull a 16' trailer loaded with straw bales into our calf barn. Will unload it in the morning when cooler.

We put a set of modified cultivators on KK's Commando 8 and did the potatoes up at Mom & Dad's. Did a fantastic job.

Used the Ford LGT 165 and the cultivator to do the majority of the weeding in the garden on Friday.

BEST TRACTOR CHORE IN THE WORLD!!

My daughter had her 4th birthday yesterday, and we threw a party, invited a number of her friends. There were sprinklers for running through, a kiddie pool, a Barbie cake, but my wife insisted on the activity I enjoyed most: Putting all the kids in the trailer and giving them a ride around the cul-de-sac.
I'd say the Massey looks really proud.
