Nothing done with any GT's yesterday, today, and likely not for at least 2 or 3 more days.  Rain, Rain, then more rain!

Used the Craftsman PGT9000 to mow 3 yards today, including mine. I had to take the deck off and clean it. It had become quite a mess mowing damp grass/weeds a week or so ago. Also, on my Garden Way Tuff-Cut mower, the idler pulley for the blade belt bit the dust. I found a possible replacement at TSC, although it was not an exact match. The inside diameter of the bearing was larger, but I found a spacer that should fill the gap. Looking on the web for the actual replacement pulley, I found out that it is no longer available. (I love that old mower.... basically it is a Yazoo.)

I lost a 20' northern white pine to snow load early this spring. The G152 got tug duty for that task.

I put the 112 and 425 to work yesterday afternoon and this morning hauling, Bricks, blocks and dirt.  I had a guy building me a new brick mailbox and since I already had all the materials, we loaded up the 21 cart and got the job DONE!  Will post pictures tomorrow as I am too tired today.  While they were building the mailbox, Callie and I spent the day digging holes and planting some Yellow Bells that my Mother in Law had given me.  We dug out about 2 yards of clay, put about a yard of topsoil back in the holes and then a yard of mulch over the top of that........all in all.........a VERY productive day.

I'm about to go clean up and level the end of my clamshell driveway. It gets small low spots when we got a lot of rain and everyone in the county uses it to turn around in. They wheel in, slam the brakes, stab the throttle while turning the wheels as hard as they can and leave me the work.

Man, I need a tiller like that.  That looks like a pretty good job.  Beats the heck out of me and my old TB Pony that is slowly coming apart.

 

Did not do anything out of the norm, but did get some seat time today.  With the snapper, wagon and chainsaw, went around the place trimming/cutting up fallen limbs from winter and the recent storms.  After cleaning up for a while, changed to the mowing gt, a sears GT6000 with bagger.  Took quite a while, actually started yesterday and finished today.  Takes quite a bit to mow with a bagger, run to garden to dump clippings in preparation for planting this weekend... I hope.

 

Yea, did I mention this is the first time I have got to mow!  Wow, did it feel good to be out in the yard again.  Been a long, COLD winter.  Wife laughs at me, says I am nuts, looking forward to mowing, but, all I can say is, GUILTY!!

I had a little area in the garden with the winter rye cover crop left about 8' wide by 35'   I didn't have much time to swap the cultivator to the sickle bars on DB 600 so I used the one I modified  last year . It was a little awkward because I had to go in the same direction each pass , good thing it wasn't a big area lol

Yup, it sure makes short work of a big garden (and mine isn't even big). I searched CL high and low for a 3pt tiller to fit my baby 'Bota and finally found this one about 30 minutes from my parents house. Only paid $350 for it and I've done enough tilling jobs on the side to pay for it 3x... and this is only the second year with it.

Got to love a tool that you can justify having yet only use it once a year!! I think I'm going to plant some winter rye next year just so I need a sickle bar!
