drug the dethatcher around some with the LGT 165. The new tires/wheels I put on the dethatcher are a lot nicer than the ones it had. I had 100lbs of concrete on it and it was working good.

Have not done anything since Tuesday. But Tuesday I broadcast 2 acres of Dutch White Clover and harrowed it in.
It took two tractors to do it. Hauled the seeder, seed and hand tools in the trailer behind the big Murray.
Pulled the seeder and harrow with the 318. How on earth can anyone get along without two?
Then put the mower on the Murray and mowed 1/2 acre of cornstalks where the wife wants her garden.
Tonight I'll start mowing the grass across the creek, the main lawn can wait a few days and tomorrow I'll start tilling the garden.

Took the MF10 out for it's firtst "job" since the rebuild. I made a drag out of some expanded steel that was laying around. Knocked down and spread the dirt and gravel form winters plowing with the big tractors. Worked better than I thought. I intend to use it on the cow pattys but didn't want to get it that dirty yet. First thing I do with a chain or cable attachment is check your turn to make sure you won't catch your tire and have a bad accident. I found out I need to do somethiIMGP1699.jpg

I found out I need to do somethi[ATTACH=CONFIG]12924[/ATTACH]ng with the throtle as it is not tight enough to stay in one place with out keeping my hand on it. I think Nutndun said he had that same problem.[ATTACH=CONFIG]12923[/ATTACH]




:yelclap::yelclap::yelclap:
That looks like fun, and nice lookin MF.
Did you put in 1st gear, and 1st speed on the vari lever, and get off and let it
crawl all by itself.
I'm sure it says somewhere in the big book of safety rules that it's a no no, but
it's nice to stand back, have a cold one, and watch her crawl down the driveway.

Iamsherwood, I never thought of that, althought I have tied the steering wheel with a piece of twine and go feed hay of the wagon many times, ha ha. Actually I pulled the drag around in third gear. That a good point though, you don't get to see your GT working when your running it.

Shot some spray bomb primer on the diesel JB, then did a test plow in one of our corn fields. You can watch it here:
