What I did made me sick to my stomach! Working on a welding/fabrication project in my shop, NOT paying attention to a piece of square tubing that I leaned up against the roll up door, forgot that I did and opened the door to get something from my truck and then I hear "bam bam ssccrraattcchh" !!!! I stood there weak in the knees. For 10 years I was always careful after I restored it. Only has 42 hrs since resto. I just quit what I was doing, closed shop and went to the house~  This is what I seen this morning~ 

Ouch!

Well, I pulled the engine out of my Cub Cadet 122 today. Did a complete overhaul. Bore, stroke, port and polish, shaved the head and BOOM! My luck, the only thing I didn't rework or replace went. Camshaft took a dump all over the place.

Picked up leaves with the little rider and dumped them in the garden. And then put the tiller on the Gravely and tilled them in. Now they can compost in place for next year.

Will that buff out? Sorry.... Once my Daughter plowed a Montgomery Wards that I just bought into the back of my Buick. Nowhere as nice as yours but the same thought line as the additional work needed to fix it.

Took the Wizard loader and removed the flower remnants, Halloween and fall decorations like straw and pumpkins and all that stuff, off to the woods, removed the mum planters and getting ready for the evergreen planters and Christmas decorations.

Ouch!

Sorry about that, but that's fixable, at least there doesn't seem like any sheet metal damage.

It is down to the metal in 4 places on the hood, one long nasty scratch on the dash cowl and decal and 2 chips in the yellow on the fender pan near the tread plate. What amazes me no dents in the hood. I will touch up w/correct color for now...just makes me sick! I always was careful even have a cover for it, kept the grandkids from climbing on it (they knew it was off limits from the others). I found it 11 yrs ago in a fence row, 1 yr to restore(on/off) and just added the rear lift/spring assist last year. It was my primary mower for 2 yrs after resto and would mow w/it 2-3 times a yr after that. I pulled the deck/hanger and got the box blade on it now.

Well, after I inspected everything, the only major damage was to the cam and tappets. But, it's still not the most exciting thing I've seen. That will be for a later story.........

Used the Gravely with 30 inch bush hog to clear our campsite again, plus tow in the trailer with all the odds and ends we needed for a 'day-trip' rather than an overnight stay.  Kids got to ride mini-bike and shot BB guns, I grilled burgers and hot dogs for lunch.

Since it's really cold (-8) and we had some light dust snowfall, it was time for the Sweepster broom. Hard pack comes up easy when it's this cold. Did two driveways, the turn lane off the highway, and the intersection at the stop sign.

Went out and plowed the 4" of snow we got on Monday night. Wish I could have done it sooner, but had to work all night getting the streets cleaned for the people.
