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.

Teresa & I did some yard work today.  Sidewalk had sunk due to old tree roots rotting underground, so I raised the section up & worked gravel under to bring her a bit above grade, figuring on some settling.  Then several buckets of dirt to fill in low spots, and quite a few to refill her flower beds.  Pics are blurry, so I just uploaded one.

  We also filled 6 large plastic pails so we can transplant our blueberry bushes.  Anyone who thinks small front end loaders are just toys.....well, they are WRONG!   :D

I started brooming the rocks back onto the shoulder of the highway and onto my driveway with the Bolens and the Sweepster. Did a patch of de-thatching also.

Woohoo I got some seat time. I went to mow with the cub. I pulled the 3ph project off and went to back it out of the shop. It's a no go. I think the ignition switch is bad. I cranked up the wheel horse and mowed a bit. I went through a tank of gas. It acted like crap when I started back. Turns out it's not charging. I gave up and took the charger and the Trac vac on the long journey back to the storage barn. Ibrought the Sears out. I've got to get it back together for the tiller ill soon be picking up for it. It started right up after sitting 6 months I must add.

My nephew came to visit so I put him to work. We spread about a ton of sand on the garden and then disked and tilled it.

I managed a bit of seat time.  Used the HT20D to jump start a tractor I picked up for another forum member so I could get it off the trailer, and used the HDT1000 to put the trailer back in it's parking spot.

 

Nice thing is that I didn't need any pre-heat for either of them.  Both cranked up just fine :D :D :D

Fred (Meangreen) is using my Massey's FEL to move dirt for a flower bed.  I've not driven any GT's myself today.  6hrs on a big tractor was enough to suit me.

We had 3" of rain Wednesday evening so I decided to roll the yard today. thought it was about time for the 682 to earn its keep. The roller is 36"by 24" and weighs 640 lbs. filled with water. The 682 didn't hardly know it was attached. Rolled my yard. My favorite pie makers yard, and two others. One neighbor came out and picked up all his sticks, yard ornaments, lawn furniture, and brought me a cup of coffee. ( the high today is 43*) So I took the hint and rolled his yard. He pushes a mower and likes the "flat" surface. Now for some lunch and more coffee. Rick

Got my Allis 620 out with Massey 4250 tiller attached.  Tilled up the dirt next to the fresh new silo pit wall so I can level it easier.  Fred is going to use my Massey with FEL to move some gravel at his place.
