Hydro is king for speed selection.



You got that right.

Drove the John Deer 210 down the road to the inspectors house[father in law] to cut the grass, and till some of the garden under.He sits on the deck eating salami and drinkng wine watching me.Iguess at 85 he's earned that right,but as for me i could cut and till till the cows came home

Got the GT6000 out today and did some cultivating in the garden spot. Turned up 3 sweet potatoes that I had missed a couple of weeks ago!

I plowed the garden today by the time I got done, the plow didn't want to go in the ground. I'm going to sharpen the point after the Colts game.

Yesterday my brother and I drove the Bolens 1256 with the tiller and the PK with the front blade and carryall for gas and tools (just in case), a couple blocks to till up and smooth out someones yard. There was a pile of topsoil and a pile of mulch that needed spreading out and some humps. About three hours of work to get it done. The Bolens started getting some serious piston slap with smoke near the end so we didn't drop the tiller in as deep and need to rebuild it before we work it hard again. Hopefully no surprises with that.
Oh the joy of old tractors. :D

Saturday I mowed and chopped leaves with the GT 5000 and then lawn swept. Yesterday I used the coulter from the low and the cultivator frame and cut a slit to re-install the dog's underground fence.

I'm a football nut, Longhorns and Cowboys. My wife stays busy on the weekends and I usually do my stuff early in the morning before the kids get up. So I took my 990 with my rear blade and began leveling off and taking a few inches off some of my old lawn that I'll be resowing with grass soon. I'm just getting the hang of what the blade will and won't do and just learning how to use it, but I never get enough seat time.

So Saturday afternoon my wife toook the kids with her because she knew I'd more than likely have a bad day as the Longhorns didn't have much chance against OU....... well the game got ugly quick so I figured I;d pause it and get some seat time since my littles ones were gone. Got out and started working an area, seemed to have the blade set good and then it just stoppped moving...... Lift still worked, just no movement at all.

I'm already trying to work off the frustration of the Sooners beating my teams arse and now this.... Needless to say I just walked away for awhile, came in looked at my manuals, turns out the control rod has a ball joint that had fell apart on one end do I have one on order and I found the hydro adjustment while looking for it so I'm gonna see if I can bump that up while I'm treplacing the ball joint.... I'm laid back, but football and my GT I take serious. I'll get some pics of my learning to move some dirt.

Well I was vacuuming till I broke the chute at the deck. :booboo:Now have to take it apart and get out the weld and fix it. The phrase Haste makes waste comes to mind.
These is really going to mess up my to-do list big time.

I played in the dirt today...
Pulled out the Tow Behind Tiller...
Did a little Disc work...
Loved using my Rock Rake and the electric lift on my sleeve hitch...
Over 100 sq feet of fun :-)
Tossed some grass seed and covered with fiber mat.
Now for some rain and sunny days to germinate before it gets too cold. (I'm a month behind; Been very wet here - Sorry Texas)
