Nice fall day here in south central PA. Got the 800 out of the garage and drove it around the property for about 15 minutes. Just wanted to hear her run and give her some exercise. :smile1:

Nothing with mine, but we used my friend's to pick up a small load of 3rd cut yesterday afternoon. Only got around 35 bales off of a field where we normally get 100+. Weather has been unseasonably cold and the rain we got in October didn't let us cut until last Friday. Nice hay but that's it for this year...

Not specifically with a tractor, but spent 2 days sorting & moving stuff this wknd in Dad's garage to have a whole bay for Ryan's MF10 project. Going to concentrate on the mechanical stuff from now till spring & after our June Show, start on making it pretty. Plow days are only months away. Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock...

After being cooped up all weekend and Monday due to a cold, I went back to work today. This evening, I couldn't STAND IT ANY LONGER!!!! Got one of the GT's out along with the utility trailor, and moved a few bags of grass/leaves that a friend had dropped off today for compost. I probably could have carried both of them, but it felt good to ride around the yard for a bit. While I had it out, I picked up a bucket full of rocks from around the garden and hauled them to a spot where I've been using them for fill.

Not much, but SOMETHING!!!

Last week I worked on getting the garage cleaned out and the last of the things put away for winter. I have enough room in my shop for my snapper 1650 with the blower and my Farmall H with the loader on it. Both of those tractors have been sitting outside for a while and I think they like being inside!

Turned my 12 yr old loose mowing. Put him on the GT6000. Watchful eye from Dad, but not needed, he did great.

Well, yesterday actually...I got my lawnmower back from the warranty "repairs" and decided to take it for a test drive. I mowed about 1/2 of my yard before I couldn't feel my fingers any more. I'll probably finish this afternoon when it warms up a bit.

I just wish I could catch up enough at work to do anything with my tractor. This work thing is really getting on my nerves. LOL

Had to use the 1855's FEL to push down on the post hole digger due to ground being hard as stone. Worked though. Then hauled the posts to the holes with it. Also used the FEL to pull a couple small 5" posts out. Had to "walk" the posts back & forth to loosen, then pulled right out. My little FEL...... I cannot do without it!

I finished mowing the lawn for what I hope is the last time for the year. But really, if it wants to stay warm enough for the grass to grow, I guess I wouldn't mind cutting it a few more times!

Used my MF1855 w/FEL to lift & unload the JD 110 deck & the entire V4-6 tractor. Rolled the JD110 off. The Bush Hog tractor was sideways in trailer, so much easier to lift it out. LOVE my loader!

It's actually amazing what these little loaders do.I've had one for 4 yrs now and it's become a very usefull machine to have around.So handy to get into tight spots etc: Yes I love my little loader to.Larry
