I spent all day yesterday using a 12" Auger attached to a ?1520 Ford/New holland .

Tough going with hard clay , It was some fun seat time anyway ,and the first time I had a chance to use one of these .

How big of a shed? Shop? Equipment storage? Livestock?

I like sheds!

Had a couple truck loads of top soil brought so I leveled it out. This was done last week. I had run out of gass so I grabed the camera after refueling.

Took my CC 3208 and landscape rake and dressed my clam shell driveway, and cleaned up the edges. Man that rake is great for leveling and moving shells without digging holes.

Been putting tractors away in my museum [storage] building for the winter.  Other people started calling it a "museum" after tours of the building so the name kinda stuck. 

Every year I struggle with where to put the years new additions to the collection.  Since I don't own the real estate I can't very well build on.  :wallbanging:

Used the 1614 Power King and my [somewhat] newly made carryall to shuffle the old iron.  The Kinkade is heavier than it looks.  Made the front of the PK very light.  There are wheel weights inside and outside the front wheels.   Figured the Gravely would be much heavier.  In fact, I didn't think the hydraulics would lift the Gravely.  Hydraulics didn't even strain but two fingers under the hood of the PK and I could lift the front end off the ground.  Had to steer with the brakes with that Gravely on the carryall. 

Anyhow,  enjoy the pics.

took the J D  to the woods with me yesterday. I  started out the morning deer hunting, and around 10 I got to work with the tractor and rake.  used it to clear trails.  also cleaned off debris and raked the rocks on the driveway.  driving backwards while running the rake backwards does an awesome job moving debris, including sticks, leaves, small logs, etc.  then I hooked up my disc and worked over the food plot.  I will take my seeder and cultipacker back there tomorrow to plant .   I found a 4' Brillion cultipacker on craigs awhile back.  it used to be one section of a three-section cultipacker.

Sometimes it is the smallest little things that make me happy :D

I saw this little dump trailer on a local internet auction site last week and thought it might be cool .

I just wanted it :wallbanging:    I won the bid for 32$

I really don't have a lot of need for it ... but it made me happy . So 'Dusty' has something to pull around now . :smilewink:

Hooked up my Brillion cultipacker  Friday to cover up the clover seed I had planted in the food plot on my place.  It is heavy as heck, I can only load it with the tractor.... it works great.

The other pic of the J D is from yesterday.   I went deer hunting early in the morning with a friend on mine at his place.  2 does walked out in front of me at around 9:30, and I shot the bigger one.  Finding a downed deer in a standing bean field ain't easy.     We drug the deer to the edge of the field, then went to get the J D and a trailer....more seat time!
