The Bolens and I moved a tree (tree was cut up)that a recent storm took down from the front yard. Then we took about 10 loads of leaves back to the compost pile. Nothing too exciting but Its still seat time.:smile1:

Got the Deck off the 1050 and cleaned it up for the season. That leaves me with just the 38'' deck on the 900. The grass wont really grow too much longer so what ever needs cutting will be done with the 900.

Unloaded the tractors from show yesterday off the trailer. Used the 1855 w/FEL to lift the D4-10 off due to it's broken steering plate, & moved it near the shop to repair it. Cleaned in my shop's side shed to re-organize & get the tractors tucked in for the winter. The 1855 gets used year round, so it stays in the calf barn where it does most of it's work cleaning stalls.

funny my deck is green with a red gear box

Got the Deck off the 1050 and cleaned it up for the season. That leaves me with just the 38'' deck on the 900. The grass wont really grow too much longer so what ever needs cutting will be done with the 900.

Put the 67 MF12Hydra back in service as the main grass cutter while my 3 wheel Ransome is down for repairs. It ran 3 1/2hrs non stop today, first time it's been used in a long time and it did OK.

That sounds like a great time L.G.!! I wonder if the Misery Dept. of Constipation would allow tractors in the Poosey drive through in two weeks? Whadda ya think?

Not a GT but saturday I used the 53 Ford Jubilee to bush hog for 3 hours. Then finished it up sunday in about another hour. Then used a the box blade to dig up some burried trash (scrap steel) that some one burried a long time ago. Then smoothed the area and will seed it soon.

Blew the leaves away from the house and parking area, then used the GT5000 to crunch them up so they wouldn't blow back where they were.

Need to mow the entire yard, but haven't had time.

Worked on the tubes that hold the tines on the Allis tiller... whatta mess. A little under-designed IMO. The tines are fine, but the tubes that hold them are WHOOPED where the 2 sections bolt together. Gonna have to get creative.

I bought an el-cheap-o sleeve hitch blade at a garage sale last Friday and finally had time to mount it today and enjoy a 'lil seat time. I put it on my P.K. 1614 because it has two way hydraulics, and I figured it would need all the help it could get. The blade works better than I anticipated. I also bought some wheel weights in the deal because they were too cheap to pass on. Weights - $5, blade $5. Life is good! :bounce:
