Got the Gravely out to widen the driveway. The snow banks were way to tight. Almost got claustrophobic just trying to leave the house. They were hard and heavy. I could run the tractor up over the piles they were that packed.

Our snow has been gone but after the melt the drive way got soggy and I worked it back smooth today. I used both tractors 149 & 1250...I got a good work out with my right right arm and manual lift on the 1250 with the box blade. The little dog is Weebug, a Peagle...part Pit part Beagle. She love's people but hates anything with 4 legs but leaves my neighbor's cattle an burrow's alone.

Plowed out enough room for my dad to park his truck... Then my improvised spacer for the mower deck lift failed. Just a 12" piece of copper pipe and wire so no big deal...

Put in a french drain for barn runoff. Strange winter, February and the ground drilled like April. Unit is a MT160 that I got used about 25 years ago. Came with a finish mower but we leave it set for post holes with the small auger and tree/shrub planting with this auger most of the time. I was at a plow day this fall and saw a Bolens that appeared virtually identical except for headlights and decals.

Plowed snow Sunday night that was not supposed to hit until Monday morning :(

We got 3-4", biggest snow fall so far for us this year, we've been lucky. As soon as I backed into barn, lights went off, winch quit working. Regulator was too hot too touch and fuse was blown. :wallbanging:

At least I got plowing done! :thumbs:

Plowed my drive and one neighbor's in the freezing rain. Thankfully it didn't take long, just cleaning up some small drifts and about an inch across the main drive.

I used the 800 over the weekend to put together a 20 x 200 dog run. Its very handy for stretching chain link fence especially 200' runs.

I did that for a few years with my son. Now he claims his seat time and I get to watch.
