Cut the new grass for the first time with the Snapper 1650.
That stuff is nothing but water. Just sticks in the deck and falls out in mushy clumps.

PS. Also worked on the new mount for the loader on the 1655.
I'll start a new thread on that project and post some Pics.


No such thing here, dusty as all get-out! Send the rain down here.

We dug the potatoes (finally) and I got to use both Craftsmans. I used the GT5000 with the dozer blade to flatten where we dug, then the discs to chew it up, then the blade to smooth out again where my kids dug a 2' deep hole (cute but what a mess they were. decided digging would be easier with water.) After that, used the GT6000 to pull the wagon up to the house & then even got a chance to mow with it... all in all a productive Sunday. :D

Yeah, there's all sizes... it was kind of a part of the garden we neglected with the new little one & all. Probably 50# total with 10% loss due to sun (I never got the chance to hill them) I told the kids we'll save them for seed for next year.:smile1: With all the more we planted, it was a good season.

(Yesterday actually) Cleaned up the topside of the mower deck off of the Bolens G11XL, Pulled the pulleys off (good thing, Had a sheared woodruff key in the center / drive pulley), greased the spindles, and ordered new blades.
Today, I reassembled the carb and did some general tinkering. Tightened up a few of the darn near impossible to reach shroud bolts that were causing some loud vibration at lower RPM's, and re-routed the choke cable to where it was supposed to be...Oh, and I discovered that the chrging circuit is NOT working as I thought it was. Tomorrow's another day.

Saturday I was going to use my Ford LGT 145 to plow the garden under then use dad's Case 444 to till a section for fall broccoli. The Ford wasn't running right/good so I didn't want to work it hard. So I plowed with the case and then tilled.

Sunday I mowed with the 1953 Ford Jubilee with the 6' finish mower and then used the Craftsman GT5000 to trim around stuff.

Worked on the FEL mount upgrade.
Got her painted and should be ready to handle Tuesday. Started planning the new hydraulic system for the loader to get it of the Suntrand charge pump.

Today, I took the neighbors X500 for a spin at our camp. Wow. How user friendly. What a nice machine. I have been using so many vintage machines I was a little kid on the new X500. It was a nice time in the seat.
