Look at you guys getting to have fun in the snow with your garden tractors already. I am almost jealous. :D


George, You are more than welcome to come up north anytime you want and play in the snow! I can find you acres of snow to go out and play in.

Fired up the 1220 and 1600H to move them around to make room and the kids heard them start while they were inside and they all came out with there jackets, hats and gloves on ready for a ride. Gave them all a short ride before dinner. The 13 month old wanted to keep riding with Daddy. He will get more rides in later.

Today I broke the used cherry on the E20 snowblower. It performed well. Wet snow clogged it twice, but I had some great electrical seat time. Pics and vid later on the electric group.

I finally got some seat time behind the snow plow on the 314 today! I'd have been just as happy if it hadn't been 10" all at once though LOL!

More time playing with snow, this time I opened up beside the house. I hope to keep it open this year & want to have a path all around the house.
I'm using the excuse that it'll be easier to get the garbage cans to the curb.:bounce:

Got the Massey 1855 out to use the FEL. Putting up a small storage building, about 28x36 on an area partially in the concreted cow area, so used the FEL to scrape the concrete clean before I started. Every time I use that FEL, i wanna hug it! :D
Wish I could afford a building that size for my garden tractor storage! This will be for farm implements, and I will put in a panel so I can leave the farm generator parked in there so it can be used where it sits when there is a power outage....just hook up a tractor to it & generate right there.

Last night I plowed again. Last year I had 2 50# weights, this year I have 2 75# weights... whatta difference. :D

My wife is making fun of me because I plowed a path to the back shed. I couldn't do it last year because I was losing traction & spinning to much. It's not the tractor's fault, the plow I have on her is much heavier & wider than it was designed to push around. The extra weights make it so I smile while I plow, not grimace while I spin.

I took the Huskee and the utility wagon up to the far corner of our property and removed the one tire from our trailer that keeps going flat. The wagon hauled the jack,sockets, and a tarp for me to sit on. Of course it hauled the flat tire back down to the house. Took it right up the road about 2 miles to the tire shop and dropped it off. About four hours later I picked up the tire and put it back on the trailer. The original idea was to have the trailer ready to pick up a G12 I was watching on E-bay. The tractor had a tiller but no deck. Ended up getting outbid but the trailer is at least ready to go.

Took my Craftsman GT6000 to the place where I was cutting wood yesterday (in an overgrown side yard next to a friend's house). I used it and the 17 cu.ft. utility trailer to haul several loads of oak up the hill to throw into my 6x12 trailer to take home.

Yesterday I used the 1855 w/FEL to remove dirt & level the site of the new machinery shed. Man is this tractor/loader capable of big type work!

We are in the middle of an old fashioned snow storm here in Wisconsin!! I have been out twice today so far blowing snow with the 1650 Snapper. The first round was about 8 inches and the second round was 3 plus and it is still snowing hard! It's not supposed to end until early Sunday morning with a total of 14 to 18 inches!! After the snow ends the bottom is going to drop out of the temperature and by Tuesday night it is supposed to be -13 degrees! I used the Farmall H with the loader to move and pile some snow downtown this morning for the bar/resturant owner. I got to play in the snow for 3 hours today with my tractors!
