I believe if it were possible to do a study of rolled tractors we may be surprised how many were rolled because of tire failure when the tractor was on the borderline of too much incline. One problem with gathering the information is; if the operator lives he may not know the tire failed before it rolled and if he died we certainly will leave that information space blank.


Bound to be many rolled that were on their limit before a tire went flat. Good thing for me, this F935 Front Mower is next to impossible to roll, unless dropped into a culvert or deep ditch, which I don't get near.

Well today I had to get my suburban running RIGHT! then I took it for a drive and mower a little before it sucks up the gas.
But I had fun. Though, with the exhaust straight up I get the fumes RIGHT in my face, now I have a headache

Got the Cub 123 out this morning and tilled some of the garden. Man, is it hot and dusty! We really need some rain!
Then, sharpened the blades on a Yazoo push mower, a Snapper push mower (cleaned the deck while I was there), and on the Cub 123's mower. Had to work like heck to get the nuts loose on the blades. I don't think they have been off in MANY years. Cleaned that deck and lubed the spindles. I need to find a deflector chute for that deck.

My day off, so got everyone up & shot to town. Women folk wanted to shop some, so dropped them off & went to the paint shop. Got my acrylic enamel paints, picked them up, took them to another store, then shot home to shoot paint. Got all the yellow shot, then got everything ready to paint some red tomorrow. Been a great day off in my book! Nothing better than getting a lot done on a tractor project!
Also started the Ford LGT165 & drove a little just for kicks. That tractor runs like a new one!

Sounds like a real good day for you! As long as no troubles, that's a great way to spend time, plus a kick for the older folks at the home. I'm sure they loved it as much or more than yourself.

That sounds like a fun ride! I don't remember the year, but I used to have an SC Case. It belonged to my dad when I was a kid. We used it to work the ground for our little corn patch. The muffler broke off one time, when we were plowing, so we stuck a 4 foot piece of down spout over the broken pipe to keep the exhaust out of our faces. We never did replace the muffler. When the engine got warmed up, and you were working it real hard, it would blow smoke rings out that piece of down spout. Being a kid, I thought that was pretty "cool"!

Well i decided to pull my Wonderboy 700 Simplicity out of the weeds and fix the tranny 2 days ago. I got it out, apart, and most of the front back together. Next i gotta get the NLA gear that broke welded, and put the tranny back in. Then i put the tires on my homemade tractor yesterday, and rolled it outside. It now has the tranny for that sitting on its brackets as of today, and was rolled back inside just in time for me to clean the garage.

I hauled a dozen tractors back out to the pole shed I rent for storage. I filled all the gas tanks and gave them a good shot of Sea Foam in the gas and let them run for a half hour and refilled the gas tanks beforer putting them away.
