Full LIFETIME warranty, but only when delivered in person! Sorry there's a leak. Drive on over & I'll take care of that pronto!


I was just giving you a hard time, I will weld it up, just a small leak in a "FAULTY WELD" by the builer...:poke:

I cleaned the driveway again. We only had a light dusting of snow, but the wind blew in some pretty big drifts. I also dragged my neighbour's sled back to his place and used the pallet forks as a work table while giving him a hand working on it. Best idea I've heard of yet...just toss a piece of plywood on top and you aren't losing things in the snow or grass, you've got a level surface to work on, and there's a place to set your beer down. Not exactly tractor driving, but well worth the two minutes it takes to change from bucket to forks.

Tomorrow we're supposed to get a bit of a storm. Hopefully that leads to more tractorin'.

I took my Craftsman GT6000 and the utility trailer down the street and began cutting up an oak tree that had blown over this past spring. It was leaning against another tree. Hauled a load of 18" rounds back to the house (in the BLACK trailer that DIDN'T cost $800!!) and split most of them. Will go back soon and do more.

No storm. Looks like it's blowing in again though. I'll likely be plowing snow this afternoon.

Put the snowblower on the Allis 716 and set the skid shoes right up as high as they'd go we used it to blow some snow off the ice on one of the sloughs in the bush.It did a good job.Now the little guy is out making donuts with the quad.Larry

Went outside & hopped on the sears 7. Started right up.
Took it for a lap around the house just to do it.
Wife wondered what I was doing.

Hauled more fresh-cut oak firewood from down the street. At least a ton in all. I probably have at least that much more wood to cut and bring home. Looks good on the wood pile! (I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow..... got called in to work this afternoon before I could get some pics!)

Fired up the Bush Hog T-63 & drove it out of the shop & into the enclosed shed. Need the space in my small shop. It's in the low 20's and I didn't even choke it, hit the button & she fired on the 2nd stoke! Best starting engine I've ever had!

I to got some seat time in today tried the snow thrower on about 3" worked out good. I love the H14, it starts all the time without fail and the hydro is a working great. I replaced one of the hydraulic lines from the control valve to the lift the cost was $16.00 not bad I guess. I find that it is very tight in the area were it goes outside the frame, and it rubs on the sheet metal. I will look at that in the spring and fix it
