I didnt get seat time today. I test mowed for 5 minutes, and watched one sit and run for about an hour while testing the cooling system.

I again didnt get seat time today on the GT, but starting in about 2 hours I will get about 15 hours straight seat time on the JD 5220 and around 6 or 7 on the JD4610. Its time to core airify the greens at the golf course. I wish this was a fun type of seat time.

Not a dang thing WITH! Been raining so many days that it's impossible to use them for anything. If it can't float.... don't drive it here!

That's why they make floatation tires, Olcowhand.

That wouldn't be enough to float me. Besides, if I float, then I'll get washed away. Flood warning just issued for my area. My home is safe from floods, but I'll be replacing some fence & creek crossings when the water goes down. ALL my 7 water gaps will be washed away....guaranteed!

Sorry to hear that. We are under a flash flood watch until tomorrow evening. Cats and dogs are hitting the roof right now. At least the garden is getting a drink.

Got the suburban out today for the first time this spring and did a little driveway repair. We need to get a load of gravel to take care of the ruts that have washed out over the last couple years but worked with what we could scrape back up from the bottom of the drive for today.

Fired up the old Cub Cadet 104 today. Added a little marvel Mystery oil to the gas, and will run that through her. Next is new rear tires.

My very first attempt ever at plowing.
Ground was a bit damp, but I just had to give it a try.
I can't believe I actually got dirt on the tires of the freshly restored MF16.
I did this with unweighted turfs. Slipped a few times. Can't wait to get the
chevron tires on.
Anyways, how'd I do? I'm learning, and looking for advise.

That is the good kind of dirt Sherwood :D

Looks like you did good considering the soil looks too wet. The tractor did great considering the conditions too, I would have thought you got swamped if you didn't tell us how you made out.

The glare on that paint job aint right. The tractor told me you need to get it a little more dirty.

That is one good looking resto job. The plowing looks good too.

I used the Sears SS12 today for the first time with the OH140 motor. It ran well. I tried to plow the garden but I need to tune up the land plow. I played with the disk harrow till I got stuck in the garden in the mud. I then just drove it around some to give it some run time. I am looking forward to using this tractor again. I need to get the rest of the attachments that I have for this tractor from my fathers house.
