Got about 4 hours seat time today mowing.  Had a little surprise when mowing the ditch where about a 7 foot diameter pipe goes under the road for the wet weather creak that cuts through the corner of my place.  It' a pretty good incline that makes you nibble on the seat and today I found out why.  Apparently over the winter things loosened up and when I eased up there the tractor slipped sideways and stopped against the trees and fence.  I think there's now a hole in the seat where I used to nibble.  Pulled the MF-14 out and removed the tiller, hooked a chain up and couldn't get enough traction so I had to use my pickup to pull it out.  Think I'll stop short of there next time I mow, can't see that area from the house anyway.

Finished with another hour mowing then used the pressure washer to clean the mower and deck.  Those spring fresh green weeds and grass are really nasty and stick to everything and need to be cleaned up.

We're not mowing up here!  Used the Craftsman/Berco snowthrower to move 10" of snow this morning and I'll be going out to tackle the second round in about an hour with the Deere 214 and blade.

Had great seat time with the little 650, movin through the 8 or so inches with no problems. Hit the road with the 'new to me' trailer to tend a couple o other properties. Now that most of the kinks are out and my confidence/ego grows I almost wish there would be a few more days like this before the season changes.

:smilewink:  :loosing_it:  :D

Used the 318 to pull my son's snowmobile away from the barn doors into the yard  , Guess he thought I wouldn't mind having there lol , pulled it backwards in the grass , up a slight grade , tires didn't spin as long as I kept a little pressure on the upper brake pedal , the skis on the other hand , well let say I'm going to need a little grass seed lol

Pulled the front tires off my case 444 to swap them out, and took the carb off to clean it.

Got the JD430 out & mowed some around the barns, and part of the road sides.  After fixing the broken frame, it is very nice to mow with!

Started cleaning up Satruday at my mom's place since dad past in Dec. He was a stickler about his stuff and he collected a lot of it, havent touched the scrap piles yet. I had gotten a 300 gal tote I was going to cut up to use as a baby goat shed, but only had 2 born and a big dog house that needed moved. That doghouse must weigh 400#'s, I was losing traction with loaded ags, wheel weights, two truck rotors, a 50# concrete block and my fat 200#'s on the back.

I hauled a few more loads of sawdust from the neighbor's mill to my compost pile.  As I dig deeper, the sawdust is wetter and starting to heat up!
