Finished mucking the mucky part of stall area. Then got the 2055 out & tilled the hard packed sawdust to mix up with the good sawdust still below. Will bring in more sawdust with the Cat payloader & all will be complete till Fall cleanup time. Still have to back-drag with the FEL bucket the center aisle of the barn just to spiffy things up a bit...as spiffy as a dirt floor gets anyway. LOL
After that I may get time to mow the farmlot areas with the JD F935.

Today I dug ALL of our tractors out and gave em a bath and got a couple running. The Bolens G14 Popped off on the second yank of the rope after sitting for 3 years!!! and the old mans 1050 rooled over about 3 times before it fired. The 920 was on tow duty most of the day carting tractors around. We also got the old mans HT20 to live again. We had to put a new coil on it did some work on the starter and pulled the rearend so we could put the driveshaft back in.

All in all it was a very productive day.

Just mowed the yard with the Kubota G4200. Using it makes me smile! That diesel is so sweet, and the tractor is nimble & easy to drive. Love the foot pedal hydro. I just bought a speed knob for the steering wheel and now it's even easier to maneuver. The steering wheel is odd shaped at the spokes, so a std speedball won't fit. Got one at TSC that does great. It has a 2 piece plastic bottom, and comes with rubber insert for a tight grip to odd shaped wheels.

I trimmed my willow trees this morning,and I used my 1655 to haul the brush away in an old rickety trailer,that I am going to replace someday when I get time to build a new one.

hi guys,
got to mow some in the field with the sickle mower. it did pretty good, i think it needs the knives set up for the right clearances. some are real close,and some have almost 1/8 inch between them?

Nothing since sunday when i cut 3/4 of the way through a stump, and then rammed it with my tractor to break it off. It was too rotted to bother cutting anymore.

Just hook that Ford to it & drag it out of your way! LOL Hope it's cooler weather than here for cutting/hauling that brush!

Supposed to be 87 today and 93 tomorrow.

I am a little worried about how the ford has been running lately. Hope it can keep going until its turn to be rebuilt.

Same forecast as here Chuck. Saturday is going to be super hot & humid they say. I'm on milking duty that day too. I'll be off on Father's Day though! The schedule worked out good for me.

I'll be looking forward to watching your progress Brian. Maybe I'll learn enough to do my own someday!
