Got to use the sickle bar mower for the first time tonight. I love it, neat to run and very smooth.

Used the FEL on my Massey to put out several 200lb molasses lick tubs to the cows/heifers.   The bucket holds 2 of them at a time.

Got the Sears/loader and the JD112 out of winter hibernation this past weekend, feel good to get them going and out where we can use them!!

Glad we fed them heavily treated gas last fall, both were easy starts with no fuss and no "cheater fluid"

Been mowing with the JD430, even though kinda wet still.  Been rainy so long I had to mow before it got tall enough to bale!

Slapped the 42" Iseki tiller back on the Bolens yesterday to re-till the side yard that I tore asunder last fall. Much better results this time around as I was only going for the top 3". Drug it level and got 25% of it seeded, and turned again, before the rain settled in. Our forecast was for a tenth up to a 1/4", we have 3 tenths already and climbing. We really need the moisture, I'm very thankful it has arrived.

 

No pics, I was in a hurry. The dog collar cam is still in the development stage.

This was late afternoon/early evening yesterday, but I fired up my 1256 with the Haban Sickle-Mo and mowed the north lot.  I normally mow it with my CC LTX 1045, but a series of events allowed the grass to get WAY too high for a lawn tractor to handle without multiple passes, so I just 'knocked it down' with the sickle mower, and will hit it again in a day or two after it's dried out some.

 

The plan is the get the south lot today if the rain holds off.

 

Here's what it looked like after I was finished.

Slapped the 72" deck on the Jacobsen T422D and tested it out. It mowed fine, but the hydro is still slow.

Got a lot of seat time on the 120 yesterday, so much so that I'm a sore in the rear region lol (the seat really leaves something to be desired in terms of comfort). Between that and my faithful little craftsman my buddy and I mowed about 4 acres of his property. Definitely a good day!

Finally finished mowing the South yard.  It turned cold right after I mowed the North yard, so I just waited until it warmed up  :D :D :D

 

Used the Bolens 1256 with the Haban Sickle-Mo again as the grass was WAY too tall for the CC 1045.

 

Here's some pics of what I was dealing with, plus before and after pics.
