We're supposed to get some snow tonight...nothing here yet, but I heard it was a full blizzard west of the city...so maybe tomorrow I'll have something to do with my tractor.

I am having to take it easy du to some minor surgery so I figured sitting in the tractor seat was the same as sitting on the couch. I hooked up the scrape blade and started to knock down some dirt piles that are around the pond.

Got some seat time again today before work...
Now I know how the "Swamp loggers" feel. lol
Redistributed a lot of gravel from the driveway because the ground was to soft so support the skids on the blower.
Clearing some paths in back was funny though, 4" of water with 3/8" of ice on top then the 8" of heavy wet snow on top of that.
None of the commentery was suitable for children under the age of 21, but I still had a smile...

Everybody all around me got nailed...drifts two or three feet deep, completely blown in, etc. Not me or my neighbours though. There was a bit of a drift on the windshield of the truck and that was it. No tractor time.

I heard my BIL got nailed pretty bad though. Apparently my nephew had to crawl out a window and shovel the door out. So I called him and said, "Hey, I have a tractor and a trailer if you need a hand." Too late, his neighbour with the Bobcat had already taken care of it. No tractor time for me.

Well, actually when he drove down I was milking the cows & he did a drive through, as he didn't wanna drop in while I was working. I heard his tractor just as he was leaving the farm drive & waved my arms for him to come back, but he didn't see me. BUT...maybe you're right Brian! LOL I would like to see them side by side myself. I know the JB has some size, but that 430 is one big machine, and I figure a bit larger than the JB. I know the 430 has a wider rear wheel stance.
Maybe we can let the tractors meet for pics soon....maybe tomorrow.

I got my tractor out and hooked the tiller up and tilled and layed off my rows getting ready for planting taters. I also had a pressure gauge hooked up and tried to figure out my hydro system. mikebramel had been helping a lot gonna check it out more tomorrow and am going to try and plant my taters.

Just did some test plowing with the diesel JB in my garden. It does great, BUT after several passes, I could smell something...hydro was getting pretty warm. So it's to the hydraulic shop for some more fittings. I have to go ahead & get my cooler installed ahead of the radiator. I'm just short about 3 fittings. Other than that, she's a beast!
