It took over a year of tinkering to learn how to "tune" the sickle mower. That thing is a cutting trick now. I turn it on and clip the lawn as I walk to the field with it, just to see it cut the short grass!! 

 

I could cut the lawn with it, and get better results than MANY riding mowers people use.  :hitting_self_roller:

 

Come on up, Once I explain mine, you would have yours "tuned up" in no time!! :love:

Plowed my Brother in law's garden Satusday, then finished it off with the Troybilt. His garden is kind of sandy for some reasonand loks to have a lot of old ash from maybe firepit, turned over great and the Trobilt made it like powder.

 

Nice Gravely, I should get my dad's old 8L out of the barn and try to rehab it, hasn't ran in probably 15 years

I moved about 15 trailers or so of sand from the driveway to the site of my soon to be installed above ground pool. The tractor didn't whine a bit. The K66 transaxle must like the synthetic oil I put in it recently. :D

Used the 2320 loader bucket to scrape out some grass growing up against the garden fence. This area used to be blueberry plants but we moved them and the grass took over to the point that I had to peel it up like sod. What is interesting is that we do not have any grass at all on our 2 acre property. It's all spread by the wind from other properties. I got it out of there before it went to seed and used it to fill in a hole off the side of one of our trails.

Used my newly dieselized Massey 1655 with loader to lift the heavy rubber push blade (6'x16"x4"thick) back into place to bolt it back on the manure scraper.  Gotta love the versatility of these little loaders!

Greg, You needed a sickle bar mower for that hay field. :poke:

 

The JD did a nice job mowing it down. :thumbs:

Too busy to get the camera today.  I also just got finished doing some dirt/gravel work with it, but Teresa isn't feeling her best today or I'd have had her get some video.  I only need a little above idle to dig like crazy!  The torque from this 16hp diesel is amazing.  Feels as strong as the 430's 20hp!

Took my WH 654 for a ride on the trailer. Stopped at a car wash and tried to clean it and the truck up a little.

No one will sue this car wash owner for taking the paint off their car....Not enough pressure to cut a paper towel!

Got my Cub 123 out and used the newly-rebuilt #1 tiller to stir up the weeds that were trying to grow in the garden. So glad to have the #1 tiller working again. It has to be one of my favorite implements!
