ok, today I used the 66 suburban 12 and the 42in dozer blade to scrape up sand and rock to make a sort of platform I am going to build. I scraped it up from the driveway in the first picture then pushed it in to the little area in the second picture. If you look closely, you can see a little green machine haha. Guess what it is.

I went outside early this morning with the intent of getting a few items to take to a friend's house to finish some trimming. I walked past my garden, saw that the weeds were getting a little out of hand, and decided to take care of those first. Got my Craftsman GT6000 out, attached the Agri-Fab cultivator to it, and had about an hour of fun! I really like that old GT6000 (18HP Kohler twin) and have always been impressed with the cultivator. I would recommend either one highly!

got the jacksheave for the powerflo I got a week and half ago. I got around $85 in it.:smile1: Got the powerflo on the JD 214 with a 46" deck and tried it out. Wish I had it years ago. Sure would had make it easier than using the sweeper.
put new bearings in the spindle that I had for a while.

Got to mow with the Cub yesterday, since the MTD decided to blow a mower spindle. Seemed rather different, since the seat on the Cub is a lot higher than the MTD. Felt like I was on a BIG tractor for a while. Very enjoyable, though.

Yesterday I got a late start pulling the three point hitch off the MF1650 parts tractor. Then I removed the seat, rear wheels and fenders from the MF14. Drilled two 1/2 holes and mounted the hitch on the MF14. About that time the wife called "Honey Do" which took a couple of hours (now she's happy so the world's happy). Started to go back to work on the MF14 but by then it was 3PM and 105 degrees so I decided to :beer: Monday I'll get back to work on it and take some pictures. Can't wait to get that all hooked up and working.

I have a Wards Plow-Trac. Son wanted to install a buried dog fence/wire. Set the depth of moldboard plow to cut a furrow about 1 1/2" deep. Took about 30 minutes to cut the trench around his 4/10 acre house lot. Would have taken much less time except the plow shear hooked a tree root. Took both son and I to wiggle and drag the tractor backward to unhook from the root.

yesterday my wife used the cub 1210 to move a picnic table to a different spot in the yard, and the she cruised around the yard with a huge grin on her face. As we walk to shop to get the cub she claimed it as hers since it was easy to start, 2 of my other tractors have small tricks to get them to start. All this after she had made fun of the cub ever since I hauled it home.

Just got through cleaning some calf stalls with the Massey 1855 w/FEL, then used it to haul sacked feed down to the calf barn. Always fun to use this Massey, even while it's raining out! Got a little wet moving the sacks.
