I gotta start posting updates LOL. It has been a couple days now but I tore the belts off the Massey 1655 and also undid some of the crappy wiring that the previous owner had done. I need to take the suction line off and clean it up and figure out why it is leaking. Also got new belts and a tranny filter to put on. Hopefully get to do that this weekend.

Daniel I love that 1010 :D

plowed one of the garden areas yesterday with the 1855. Fnally made some mods to my plow and now she buries herself up to the beam. The 1855 never skip a beat until i hit some roots. I plowed North to south until i got close to the tree then I had to go South To north starting on the outside and working my way back to the middle As I was geting down to the last pass or two, the tractor slide off into the other furrows and bottomed out on the unplowed middle. Now its stuck, gotta get the big tractor out this morning and pull the 1855 out. I will take some pics later.

Yesterday afternoon I needed some tractor seat time so I shoveled the snow off of my snowmobile trailer, that I need this week, and then I blew the snow out of my way. I then went and widened the neighbors walkway. I was on vacation for a week and needed some tractor time. I am ready for winter to end and the snow to start melting. I have many tractor projects to work on but they are under 6' of snow. It will melt eventually.

Used the Craftsman GT6000 to haul a load of wood to the house for the wood stove, then moved my 6x10 enclosed utility trailer back to it's parking spot. Had moved it last week.

Not much, but it was fun to do on an otherwise cold day.

Yesterday i took smokey and moved some scrap out front to load up. Then i hitched her up to the 24 foot car trailer, and backed it up to the shed where one of the vans to be scrapped is parked. Once the van was cleared off, we pulled it onboard with the block and tackle and set off for the drive way. To do so, i cut across the neighbors field, and went alone the property line whilst they watched. Then it was across the front yard, and down the hill, with 3000 something pounds behind me. Smokey did pretty good, and only had trouble backing the trailer up to the door, it went just fine coming back out. After that, the only thing left was to push my bros tractor into the new shed space so he can work on it.

I've had absolutely nothing to do with my tractor for a couple of weeks now. It's still winter here, but we haven't had any real snow. I did need some gas though, so this morning I fired it up and drove it over to the gas station, gas can in the FEL bucket, and filled both the tractor and the gas can. I hate this time of year...it's like being in limbo.

I decided today that it was dry enough to till the garden and plant my peas. I tilled a few passes with the tiller and then realized that when tilling with the tines in reverse the sharp edges were not going in the ground they were on the forward facing side. I switched them no big deal and worked a whole lot better. Tilled and planted the peas. I am going to get my onion sets and potatoes out soon. An old man buddy of mine said the signs were right on the 28th and 29th. Might set them out then if not sooner I don't know how much to believe in that stuff anyway.

I played in the mud with the 314-8 today! I have a buildup of sod and dirt in the center of my formerly gravel driveway. I've been meaning for a few years to get it taken care of, but I usually think of it after the spring thaw is over and the sod is hard as a rock again. Well, I may have jumped the gun a little. The ground was a little too soft and I managed to make a really big mess LOL! This just guarantees that I'll have some more seat time to clean it all up!

I used the Snapper 1650's back blade to clean off the inch of snow/slush we got today. It looks like it will be above freezing here for the next week so hopefully the snow will start melting away. It might get to the upper 40's yet this week!!!

Fired up the SS12 & the snowblower. Proceeded to blow the 3 inches of snow & 2 inches of mud under it. OMG what a mess. There were a couple of maniacal laughter moments.
