Actually, I sprayed more than "one" weed! :smilewink:

Kinda hard to spray just one!

I had been mowing about twenty minutes with my big mower when my phone started ringing.  I shut the mower off to answer a wrong number.  The mower wouldn't restart.  So i went to the shop and decided to put my little Wheel horse to work.   She had been sitting all winter and spring.  Checked the tires, oil, and gas.  She fired right up and went to work.   Finished mowing my yard and the neighbors.  The little tractor did a good job.

The only other working mower is an old Springfeild rider....  it would have taken twice as long.

 

When the work was done the big mower fired right up!  Sometimes I swear they are alive!    Rick

I am finally getting some serious seat time. Tilling the church garden (50 x 120 yards), mowing my yard, Parents yard, neighbors yard and mowing around the garden. Keeps me busy, but I love it!

I used one of my father's old Gravelys today, it was the only one with a rotary plow already attached.  I wanted to mound up around my potatoes before they got any larger.  

 

When I pulled the tarp off the tractor, where it has been sitting since Dad's house sold, the gas tank was empty (which worried me) and had traces of water sitting in it.  I found some "Heet" water remover, filled the tank and added the "Heet" along with sea-foam and Stabil to the gas tank.  I removed the glass fuel bowl, cleaned all the crud out of it, put it back together, got the old gasket to stop leaking, then pulled the strap.  FIRST PULL, I had a running :worshippy1: Gravely!!  I love these old machines, they just keep running if you take any kind of care of them.

 

So I proceeded to use the rotary plow to mound up my potatoes.

Also, I used my Massey 12 H to cut the neighbor's yard, my front yard, and the right-of-way along our little sub-division.

Yesterday we hauled four of them to a small show in Eagleville, MO, about an hour from home:

We got a little damp while loading, but nothing serious!  ~~  Lowell

I cut several trees and pushed them into the woods with my little Wizard bucket tractor and pushed several small ones over without bothering to cut them first. It's amazing the abuse these little tractors will absorb!

Yesterday I went to dad's and pushed his seeder around a little.  The wagon is full of feed sacks, but it also has the planter and related materials.  The 147 got mowing time.  All of ours wear their work clothes.

Tractors are for working, that's what mine do, I trimmed some trees and pushed/hauled the brush away with the Wizard, after mowing with the Simplicity/Craftsman ZTR.

Got the Toro out to mow the pasture. Had an issue with a belt. The green Kevlar belts aren't going to hold up to this set up. So I'll need to order new Toro belts. The PTO drive shaft is needing attention, so I ordered new u-joints and one splined end for it. That was $180. But it does a great job mowing and is fun, so well worth it.

Using a Bolens 1050 and cart.  Redoing flower beds so hauled rocks that we had around the edges away.  (when the wagon tires are flat.  Does that mean its over loaded??)   on return trip loaded split fire wood brought up to wood shed.

 

Used the JD 425 with 3 point itch to bring the boat around to the garage.

Moved a little top soil from my driveway project. I was a little light in the front end, couldn't steer very well once I had it picked up, but I managed.  :smilewink:   

Black line was the original grade.
