Spent today working at Dad's house today, trying to keep it nice looking for the realtor to show. The day started poorly when my trusty C-8 didn't want to start. However, since I went through this last year, I put in a fresh plug and Voila! it started right away. After I had arrived at Dad's and unloaded, I spent some time cutting down the weeds in the old garden. I pay a guy to mow the rest of the area, and frankly, he charges less than what it takes me to drive down there. Then I took off the mower deck and installed the rotary broom. I have to say, the combination of dual wheels and the fact that it's a c-8 with the low range made this combination handle much better than the LI did with this broom last year. I used the LI to haul the trailer around and pick up the pine straw after I broomed it into windrows, then hauled the straw around to the different shrubs and trees and freshened all the beds. Place looked a lot better by the time I finished. I don't want to see the house go, but man I'm tired of taking care of it. hope it sells soon.

temps were nice so I was out from about 9am till dark (6:30pm) and got a lot done. Cut and split some logs from where a neighbor cleared some woods. Mowed and planted some mums. Transplanted a couple of maple trees and a couple of evergreen bushes (not sure what they are) from a over grown lot behind the house and then started mowing the lot. It's over grown and not been mowed in a couple of years so it's putting the kubota to the test.

What was going on there at the end? You seemed surprised or perhaps unhappy? Couldn't tell.

Oh it most certainly was running well. You've done a fantastic job on that engine.

Used the 165 and the trailer to haul landscaping supplies and dirt around this weekend. Really would have been nice to have another trailer because there were times I had good dirt piles on the trailer and then had use the wheelbarrow to move other things.

Used my Massey with loader to spread compost over the poor sections of my garden.....until the throttle cable let go. So it'll be in "what did you do TO your tractor" soon. I got 2/3 of the pile spread before it broke though.
Then my Grandson Case & I had a mini plow day. He was at his mother's home the day of my plow day, so he & I went up the the field & turned some dirt this afternoon. He loved it!
I had him sit sideways so he could watch the dirt roll.

Pulled 3 snowmobiles down to the barn in the hopes that ill have enough time to get em fixed this week. Snow started falling every night but it still melts in the afternoon so I gots ta get ready for the first storm! :))))) Gotta love snowmobiling, its the best feeling of total freedom to carve fresh snow early in the morning. Too bad the gov'ment is trying everything to regularize it and to outlaw carburated engines. Ill take advantage of it while I still can

After finishing putting away the manure spreading equipment, I got the Allis 620 with Massey 4250 tiller mounted out & tilled in the composted manure that I spread the other day with the Massey with FEL. Good to get some GT seat time! Wanted to get it tilled in before Monday's rain coming.

I like that AC... that think is a tank and I bet the geared drive works great with that tiller.

All I did was load up the trailer with some $1 perennials I picked up at lowes. I just cought some of the last decent mums and salvia plants they had. I'll be planting these either tomorrow when the kids are napping (I'm playing Mr. Mom tomorrow) or on Sunday.

Haven't done anything with my tractor yet today, but we're supposed to be getting the first snowstorm of the year, so hopefully I'll be cleaning the driveway by tonight.

Yesterday after installing my new ignition switch and steering wheel on my Allis Chalmers 916H it was back to the leaf wars. I swept up about 65-80 bushels of leaves in the front yard than dumped them in a pile and chopped them with the belly mower til they were reduced to about 7-8 bushels then swept them up again and transferred them to my compost next to my garden. Love that Brinly sweeper.
