Used my JD 140 to roll a rock out of a hole. Needed to plant a shrub where the rock was and well it had to be moved. I honestly am starting to dread putting in the new garden considering how many rocks we found putting in a line of fence and a row of shrubs.

Got the JD430 out & mowed my yard yesterday evening.  Was nice smelling the fresh cut grass!  Didn't need mowing bad, but got it evened up at least.  This is my 2nd mowing.  Also got the Diesel JBI Bush Hog out just to drive around a bit.

Yesterday, it was Easter.  Did all the things I had planned on with the family & then noticed the mess the plow truck made of my Parents lawn when the got off the road with the wing plow down.

 

There was asphalt chunks and gravel 30' out into their yard and scattered over about 200' in length.

 

I put the plow on the ST16 and used the float feet to push it all up out of the grass and onto the berm.  It did a really nice job and it's one more thing my Dad doesn't have to do.  Oh, and it was an hour of seat time, even if it was misting.

I got seat time! Did several hours mowing up in Collinsville at Aarons. The clover was getting really bad up there, So the Ford got it's first spring workout. Used the FF to move things out of the way. Fun times being back in the saddle.

Hooked wagon up to the MF and collected sticks, twigs, and Branches. Took them to the burning pile. Thinking about pulling the Craftsman into the shop and taking off the snow plow, but there still talking snow the next couple of days so I might not do that,

On sat i put the fenders i made on my 70 then decided to put the deck under it and try it out. Got the whole back yard mowed mainly cut the leaves up. took a break then started the front yard when the belt broke my guess is the belt was older then me. Hooked up to my lil yard trailer that was full of pallets that i had broken up and took them down to the wood box. Now looking at the 70 i need to put the other tires on the rear the off set on these rims isnt working for me. Heres a few pics for ya guysgallery_8613_445_77715.jpggallery_8613_445_3462.jpggallery_8613_445_92697.jpggallery_8613_445_65420.jpg

I bought a used 10" plow in Jan. I tried it out for the first time today. It took 2 rounds to get it adjusted, but it sure dose a good job. Now all I have to do is put a gear drive transaxle in my 149 cub.

Hauled a Massey 12 Hydro down to my Dad's house to help clean the place up after the winter.  Mowed the front yard, was real unhappy about the neighbor's dog doing his business in our yard.  Then hooked up the trailer and set the hydro to "crawl" and walked around with it throwing branches into the trailer (same 4x8 the tractor was loaded on).  Got up two loads, still need to go back down and clean up all the pine straw.

Ripped up my garden with the Ariens. I used the homemade toolbar, starting out with 6 shanks. The 2" chisels clogged up with debris real quick so I took them off and used the 4" chisels instead. That really worked good to break up. It looked dry across the top, but it was way too  wet to till yet.

used the ST16 to drag the B112 Allis up to the garage so we could convince it to quit hibernating. Later on, I used the ST16's blade to fix more of the berm up at the farm where the snow plow did all the damage.

Once I got the B112 running, I tilled Mom and Dad's Tomato Patch just to make sure everything is working as it should be... Have a favor for a friend to do over the weekend that gets me some seat time with the Allis. I plan on Video and some pics.
