As usual I used the Allis 314H to pull a couple snowmobiles around the yard. Pulled another in the barn Pulled the MF14 in the barn also. Got some seat time mowing the yard with the WH C160.

In between packing loads of silage, I used my Massey 1655D's FEL to fill in next to the silage pit block walls where it had settled way down.  First I put down some gravel to fill voids next to the wall, then put a layer of dirt on top.

Just finished mowing in the dark around my house with the JD 430.  Why on earth make such an awesome tractor, only to put such lame, lame (did I say lame?) lights on it.  My balding head reflects more moonlight than these lame headlights do!   :wallbanging:

The only mower lights that have impressed me were my 682's. I could easily mow with them in the dark.

Using Hulk II to move the lumber I bought for a new 24 X 18 X 8 Shop I am building. Concrete will be here tomorrow and the lumber was in the way.

Used my Massey 1655D's FEL to bed 90 freestalls with sawdust for the cows.  Then I got the Unico out to test my sleeve hitch I mounted temporarily on it.  Plowed a little with it, and it did very well!

I used my Cub Cadet 682 with Kwik Way loader to pull three of my snomobiles out of where they've been sitting for the last 5 years to get ready to sell them.  The one on the trailer fired right up after I dumped a little gas down the plug holes.  Wish everything I had fired right up like that.  Didnt try the other two as both of them had massive hornets nests in them.     Stewart

Used the loader on my MF1655D to put out molasses feed blocks for the cattle, then used the loader to flatten the remnants of my sweet corn.  Like I've said so many times, I can't live without this little loader!  Gets used at least every other day!

Used the FEL on the Massey 1655D to push old silage scooped from the feeders down to the manure pit push off ramp.  Then mowed the farm areas with the JD F935.  Getting ready to mow my home yard with the JD 430.

Got ready to dig potatoes with the ST16 and it started to pour down rain. We waited an hour and tried... Way to muddy for traction.
What we disturbed, we dug up anyways by hand. Not very much, I'm afraid. Tater crop will be scant here this year. Less that phenom gardening.

We got 1/2 the corn, almost none on the tomatoes and probably half last years crop on the taters.

On the other side, the onions and peppers did well for once.
