2 days ago i started mowing the property out bush with the JD Sabre 2002 ,cutter belt come off & took chunks out of it so ended up doing the rest with the MTD gold series 2001

 

 some 1 hit a small Kangaroo on the road , been there for 4 abouts days & was on the nose so i used the Rancher 2 with the push blade & pushed it further up the road side away from the road gateway so i had more fresh air when opening & shutting the gate otherwise just moved scrap around with the Rancher 2

I let mini me play in the garden with the Gravely. Still plenty wet to till, so we ran the cultivater through it to break it up again. A few more days and it should be good.

Worked on the garden with the new lgt145 and rear tiller. Doesn't seem to have the power it should for 14 hp. Mowed with the cc1282 . Pulled the lawn sweeper with the Ford lgt 100.

Mowed the yard with a J.D. 70, 7h.p.engine, 34" deck

I finished this tractor overe the winter. Tested it a couple weeks ago.   Fixed a couple small problems.

Today I put it to work and mowed the entire yard. 

It mowed nice and even.  I was pleased with the cut.

The bad part was 2nd gear was too fast, and 1st gear was slooooowww!

It took almost twice as long to mow the yard as it would have with my regular mower.  18 h.p. engine 46"deck.

The good part is that it rides well and turns easy and tighter than the bigger mower. 

I think the wife Is going to like this one.

Mowed the yard on Saturday with the 15HP 42" deck on my craftsman rider. All weekend was yard and garden. After yard cleanup was done I pulled out the sears custom 10 HP and started plowing the garden. Ground was just right for a good furrow so I did most of the 1/2 acre garden with the plow first. Then I thought I need more seat time sooooo, I got out the 12HP suburban and I hooked up the roto tiller and went back over the fresh turned ground with the tiller to get ready to plant. Man that garden looks good now for sure!!!! I'll get some picks and post in the next couple of days. Also played hooky from work on Monday as the weather was beautiful and I planted 2 rows of asparagus in my newly plowed garden. :)

Mowed the front yard and part of the back yard after work tonight with the MF12G. I have a side job starting so I couldn't do the whole yard.

Got BIL's Kubota running. Been through all the fluids and filters, tires holding air now, coolant stays in currently, still need new top hose. Still needs some hoses replaced on hydraulics, also some change in connections - the direction of travel with hyd. controls is wonky, and several bushings and pins in PTO for tiller, but it's working :rocker2:

Started in small garden seemed to work pretty good

 

 

and cleaning up a trench line near small pond.

Sorry video failed...

 

You can see what is left of my canvas shed after those 60+ mph winds when we were at Daniel's plowing
