What happened with them? What make/model 3 wheeler?


The Fords mower deck hangs from chains on the front of the deck and 1 snapped, you make the chain longer or shorter to change cut height. Some day I want to put 2 more wheels on the front like the newer decks have, full floating, or better yet get a newer 6' rear discharge finishing mower for it.
The 3 wheeler is my Randsomes T3100 and it blew the rear tire. Not really a big deal just a pain in *** when your trying to get something done on your 1 day a week off.
Can you put or will it work putting 18 9.50 8 tire on a 6 1/2" rim? I have 2 brand new ones with no use for. Thought I'd put them on the drive tires and take the best old one for the rear, all the tires on this thing are so so, 1 drive tire is not too bad . Original size is 18 6.50 8.

Bedded 100 cow stalls with my "Big Dipper" loader, then tested my 1855 after solenoid repairs. Mowed the entire barn/silage pit area with the JD F935. Will mow around the house with my Kubota in an hour or so. Gonna go play more with the 1855 in a few.

Craftsman PGT9000: Mowed the yard this morning. Also used it to mow a friend's yard this evening.
Craftsman GT 6000: Prep'd the remaining area of my garden (approx. 75' x 35') by plowing under a bunch of oak leaves that I still had in bags from last fall. Then, used Agri-Fab cultivator to smooth things out.
Troy Bilt Horse. Cultivated the already-planted area of the garden. Tilled and hilled the remaining area for: three rows of green beans, 5 rows of sweet corn, 6 rows of okra, two rows of acorn squash, one row of zuchini, one row of straight-neck squash, and one row of water melon.

WHEW!!!!!!

Yesterday, i cleaned up one of my MF12's to sell to my cousin. Then today, I got some work done on my homemade tractor to get the frame long enough, and to bolt down the engine.

Push-mowed the entire yard so we could bag it to use the clippings as mulch in the garden. Used my Craftsman PGT 9000 and utility cart to haul the clippings to the garden. (Not much, but it's seat time!!!)

Went to TSC today, and seen they had a filter book covering ALL tractors, mowers, etc known to man. Figured a good time to get oil filters for my JD F935 & my Kubota G4200. So this afternoon I've been changing oil & filters on them, plus fluid filling the drive tires of the F935. Earlier I mowed some yard with the Kubota. I also got the 1855 out & with the FEL, flipped & mixed a compost pile of old hay & calf bedding.

Mowed the grass with it. Too bad there wasn't a gutter cleaning implement that would have been great today... Had to do it the old fashioned way... By hand!
