Alan, I should be able to figure this out, but I'm stumped"

Less that phenom gardening.

 

What is that, exactly?

I made a few more passes on the road today since it was a little drier. This home made drag does the trick.

I think it works better than the rear mounted blade for grading. It is a piece of scrap drain cover out of a chicken plant than I welded a couple of eye bolts to. I originally built it to drag behind a old Murray rider that I was using to build a R/C track at my old shop.

Hauled a few things down to the barn then tried to park it in different spots to decide where I would build its temporary shelter for the winter.

Used my PGT9000 Craftsman to mow the yard, then got the Cub 123/#1 Tiller out and went over several areas of the garden. What a nice tractor/tiller that is! It always reminds me what a good buy it was. I will take some pictures soon. The 123 is wearing a fresh coat of paint.

 

I was really hoping to get the Speedex 1631 out to at least see the light of day, but ran out of daylight. Maybe next week.... I'll be off and will have some play time!

Hooked the 702 up to the log splitter to move it to the wood pile.

I used both FF's and the Toro today. I moved the 'derelict' tractors & equipment out and mowed (bush hogged?) the weeds. Took most of the day. Couldn't take pics as I had a can of wasp spray in one hand constantly! Them red buggers are still quite lively around here yet! The boom pole came in very handy for all this! One FF was used to move the tractor hauler out of the way!

I gave Clyde, my Kohler powered AC 916H, a hard workout this afternoon finishing cutting one of the vacant lots at the front of our subdivision. ( Heavy broom grass woven with windrows from the last cutting) . It is truly running better but I'm thinking I am running it with a bit too advanced timing. I was running WOT and when I pushed her hard the engine started knocking hard and blowing black smoke. "tank, tank, tank, tank, tank......". If I eased the throttle back to about 3/4 it stopped complaining and ran smooth and without smoke as long as I did not push her too hard.

I used the FF and boom pole to bring up some lumber. Gotta build a wall on the North end of the Tractor Port.

Got a good couple of hours of seat time in today, it was much needed. Used the 120 to cut grass and mulch some leaves (started snowing while I was doing that, it was interesting) and used the ST12 with my newly modded aerator to open up my lawn a bit.

Did some cleaning in the workshop. Took the decks off the Gravely & MTD, getting ready for snow. Got the plows out and cleaned them & painted them.

Should have posted this the other day...

 

Got the HDT1000 'weighted up' for the upcoming plow day.

 

Mounted 105# wheel weights to the rear tires.

 

Used the 1886 Forklift to help :D :D :D

 

Took awhile on the first side as shown in the pics.

 

On the other side I had the right length bolts and it went MUCH easier and faster.

 

Cutting 4 1/2" carriage bolts off with just a hack saw takes a bit of time.

Used the HDT1000 to help get a Gannon Earthcavator that I bought.

It was in Grafton Il.

Here's the thread I posted in the Bolens section on what it took to get the Earthcavator :D :D
