I used the  David Bradley 600 with the "southern cultivator " fame I made to cultivate the garden . Works pretty good doing the larger areas between rows of the squash and tomatoes . Then easy to remove the center shank to straddle the beans .  I've been trying to go through once a week to keep the weeds from growing and keeping the ground from turning into concrete lol

Pulled the cultivator with the roper rt16... pulled the disk with the roper rt16 cuz the cultivator wasn't in adjustment.

Got rained out. Trying to make a food plot for deer, just cuz I have idle land and gts.

Went to go logging with the roper rt16... proceeded to get stuck in wet shi um disgusting clay.

Walked back to get the moto mower and winch, pulled the moto mower around with the winch...

Dad eventually got curious as to what I was doing, pulled my sorry arse out with the four wheeler and winch, while I pried up with a log. She was stuck good

Here's pics. Well a pic...IMG_1591.JPG

The village had a parade today.
One of the grandsons was wanting to drive a G.T. in the parade, so of course I said yes.
Here's the line up in the back yard before everyone showed up.
The John Deeres are set up with a parade hitch and I actually pulled them with the Elec-Trak.
The wife and I, two grandsons and a granddaughter drove over behind the school to the staging area and were joined by two others.
​I don't have any pictures of the parade.  But we all enjoyed ourselves.    Rick

That's not just any ol mud! That'd be northern ontarios premium red clay, always wet.

Actually, a 10 minute walk as the crow flies, there's what my family calls "the clay pit pond" where they got clay for a brick factory to the north...

I took the tank off and fushed it,new fuel filter, flushed the carb., dismantled and cleaned/filed/gapped the points. Fresh 92, little 2-stroke oil, and lead substitute. Fired it up and drove it around for a while.Sharpened the blades, greased the spools, put the deck back on. Put the belt on... blades are turning backwards??? Tomorrows another day... 1970 Jacobsen Chief 1000

 KennyP, yes down to 2 deg siliceous approx.,.have had a few frosts  with cold south and west winds and just had 2 storms  2 days ago to boot  and I'm on the west side of the hill (mountain ) the south wind , breezes come from the south down the valley too

 

Greasy6020, I'm lucky with this home made tractor I can get a reasonable load on it before the balance is awkward and unsafe because of the long wheel base , 58 odd inches center wheels, I took the wheelbase from the power-r-pup pdf plans I do have 20 KGS weight on front atm  , 5 kg =11 pbs

Hooked the sprayer up and spent a couple of hours killing briars and weeds.

Even though I'm not having to mow much, last Saturday I got some seat time time on the 12G. It started bogging out after about 45 minutes and right away with so much dust I suspected the air filter plugged up. Sure enough, put on a new one and no more problems! After mowing I changed the oil, put in straight 30 wt since it looks like the heat is here to stay.

I figured out the belt issue on my Jacobsen Chief, new pto switch and light, and cut grass with it for the first time in 15 years... cleanest cut I ever thought possible for a 10hp antique. It's an old school beast... It will be completely overhauled, this is one to keep.
