Finally got enough snow to make doing the driveway worthwhile. We got 6 or 8 inches overnight. Of course when I pulled the truck onto the road, I got it stuck in the ditch. Neighbour to the west pulled me out.

I was going to do the driveways on the east side of me and just across the road too, but somebody has a big yellow Case loader, so those were done by the time I got my little JD started. I'm guessing that belongs to the guy to the east of me, since he just built a house down the road.

The neighbor came and wanted to know if my middle buster would work for horseradish. I told him we could try it. So that is what I used the 5518 for Saturday. It worked good, just dug right next to each furrow and then he took his potatoe fork and finished the job. 5 minutes with the tractor saved him hours with a shovel was his claim. They processed it Sunday and brought some over for us to try. My wife likes it but I haven't acquired the taste.

Used the Massey 12 for hauling lots of stuff around, and the Gravely for pushing gravel.

Used the Jacobsen yesterday. Hitched up the flail mower it came with, mowed 20 feet of lawn that was tall enough to cut, (quite impressive cut, btw) and that was enough to convince the prospective buyer he wanted it. Gone, bye-bye, down the road.

I'm all out of stuff to sell until the Bolens G152 is re-done.

After you left the plow day it cracked and came apart just past the support. I think it was weakened the week before when I had to go through some tree branches. I am not sure if I am going to weld it back on or just put a slash cut tip on it.

You sould patch that hole and make a zoomie pipe exhaust!!

I hooked up the old beater trailer and took the oldest daugther and her cousin on a ride to see some cows... they had a blast of course. I also had my BIL get on the 682 and we let the kids drive around the the side yard. I'll see if I can get some video of that uploaded.

Used the FEL on the MF1855 to move some wooden posts, then large rocks to go into the flower bed. Then mowed the yard with the JD430.
Great to have some seat time!

Got the oil changed and the snow plow painted and reinstalled on my CC 129 today. Also fixed a valve stem leak in one rear tire. Getting ready to push massive amounts of snow. I hope we get that much. It was good to get some shop time.

Used the ST16 Sears to transport my smile around. Smile caused by getting the thing to run after finding gobs of junk in the carb.
