We started taking tractors to the showgrounds.
Since its only about 7 miles to the grounds, we decided to drive.some of the big ones instead of load,unload,load,unload,...
SO much faster and fun too.
So far, driven down 101jr, 101 sr, to35,to20,mh50, mf165, mh81 and a load of little ones

For the 110 John Deere.

Finished building the wire harness. Got it all hooked up, built new battery cables, installed new ignition switch. Cranked it over, no spark, removed the points cover, filed points, He, spark now. Fired it up. Sounds pretty good too.

I might have goofed though, I hope not.

I will start a new thread on that matter.

Used the loader to move all the clippings from the 21 trees I trimmed yesterday.

I took the cordwood saw attachment off the DB Super Power and hooked up the weedcutter that along with my first DB walkbehind with a sickle bar on . Took them to my sons house to see if I could cut the weeds in the wet area that the rider can't go . Started with the sickle bar and did well except where I almost burried it . I knew I was in trouble when my foot sunk past my ankles lol . Had to pull it back with the rider an long rope . It was cutting the weeds right up to when the ball bearing to make the bar go back and forth fell apart . Then the carb must have plugged up on the way back to the trailer . Had to be towed the rest of the way and pushed on , slipped trying to get it up the ramp and too a handle bar to the side of the face . The weedcutter would have worked better but the governor doesn't seem adjusted correctly , not getting full rpms so it kind of stalled a lot . Other then ach all over today it wasn't too bad . I wish my son would buy a Gravely instead of motorcycles lol Oh the reason my cutting his yard is my wife want it cleared to a fishing hole and you know what they say about a happy wife lol Can't lie I enjoyed it

I finally got to get my feet wet with my LGT 14D and see how it does cutting grass. Tall grass.
Did a great job cutting about 3 acres. I did run into a coolant temperature issue as I noticed the vents were clogging up with fine dust and dirt. Cleaned it off and problem solved.

Overall, I'm very happy with this tractor!

Ran the Roper & loader for about two hours last night moving things around in the lower garage. Junk and good stuff.
Lotta sorting in my future.
Finally got back to the rear wall in a section. Even moved the stuff in front of the 36 Fordson and fired it up.

Had a little storm blow through last night. We were without power until about 9AM from 7PM last night. At one point, the whole city of Collinsville was dark.

Stuck the camera out the door while the action was going on.

I had heard and felt the limb hitting the roof, but all I could see is what is above during the storm. Afterwards, I found this.

We got it cut up and off the roof. Thanks to neighbors with a loader tractor, some of the mess got moved back to the burn pile. I had a few things for Alice to do this morning.

Looks like a little gutter damage is all we got.

Here's Alice enjoying the workout.

A neighbor had 2 limbs blow of a Bradford Pear tree. Alice drug them off in one trip.

Things are cleaned up some. Got a hole to fill in though.

I had to dig the 3600 watt generator out and it fired right up. Kept the fridge cold and a couple lights.

I mowed!! was a lot of fun these sears suburbans cal almost rear end them selves turning around. This is only my 3rd time mowing with my sears but man am I loving how nimble it is. With a tractor as nimble as the sears and the 48" deck I need more yard to mow.

Alice got to get out a play some more! I hooked up the box blade and drug some dirt from the street to fill a hole in the neighbors yard.

Ran the BB down the drive to smooth it some. And out front where I park. Then hooked up the tine rake and went over it all. Put another 1.5 hrs. on Alice. Sure was fun making her work! Think she enjoyed it too!

Seemed to pull the gravel back up!

Had to move My 20` trailer to do some cleanup around it. There is a pile of steel that I was always backing over to get the trailer back between the fence and the garage. I moved the pile of steel, filled in some low spots with rocks then put the trailer back in its place.

Decided to build a steel rack to pile the steel onto. Also decided to use the Hobart portable welder, it does deserve a work out once in a while. Needed to get the welder, on a trailer, closer to the garage. Thought about it, 400 Polaris Sportsman has two front flat tires, dry rotted to pieces, WAIT ! ! ! ! John Deere 110`LL doooit.

After all the help I got from the members of the forum, the little 110 is running and mowing beautifully.

Here is the pic of John and Hobart.
