Helped Ryan rebuild his Starter today, then I got KK's Commando out and did an oil change for her. She was volunteering at a local fund raiser so I didn't bust her chops about working on her tractor instead of my own. :D

Looks nice! How does it steer with all that weight?

 

Surpisingly well, not too hard at all. I regularly haul about 400# drums full of rabbit droppings and it does pretty well with that too.

The rear tires though....they like to spin with all that weight up front, even with all the ballast I use. Sure can't get off the tractor without setting bucket on ground....can we say tipsy!

Pushed lots of snow off of my drive way with my JD 214 and 43 blade. 2 plus hours of seat time. Saturday afternoon through Sunday ,morning, we received 7-8" of heavy wet white stuff. Ag tires filled with Windshield washer solution and chains, mean that this tractor will push very well.

I pushed snow in my driveway for the last time this winter.  I am done!  No more snow, I can't take any more winter when my garden is waiting, somewhere under there.

This week, the front blade comes off, and the sleeve hitch goes on.  Even if it warms up tomorrow, it will be a week or two until the garden is dry enough to work.

Nice day today, nearly 50* out, so I salvaged the gravel from this Winter's melted down snow pile!  Used the 790 w/ loader to drag the gravel out & spread it over the drive.

Then the 70 I & York rake to even it out:

I used the 140 to pull the yard trailer around and haul some junk out back. It was good to get a few minutes of seat time!

 

I also moved the Kubota to the shed... It hadn't been started since December 31st and it fired right up. Man I love that little diesel!!

Skidded a bunch today and got some more tommorrow.

Skiddded about a cord today.

We skid out of the woods then cut and split.

I manage a piece of property for a company that is about 27 acres, all the free dead wood and snags and general purpose thinning that I will ever need access to. Pretty good deal.

On the way home, stopped at the local food lion, older gentleman came by and we talked tractors. He restores. Asked me if i was interested in a couple restored "show" tractors. I had to reply that, no sir I am not, all my tractors work for a living and that there is no such thing as a show tractor. He chuckled and thanked me, as I did him.

I spent about an hour playing on the 430 and finished tilling the 75X100 garden that I have been working on for the local food bank..........

Hauled a load of stone to fill in a spot and three loads of trash dirt. Even though it is not GT related I got the ABG90 blade on the 630 and pushed some stone around.

I plowed the garden.  Its my first time plowing this garden, I had only previously used a rear tine tiller and a shovel.  Its also my first time working soil with the little Ford.  This is my favorite tractor again.  Sorry, Cub Cadets.
