Got the Sears out of winter storage, hey the snow's all melted for now, and used the bucket to move wood up to the house, and then worked with the loader a bit to start a "road" into the area we had the trees removed from. Some good seat time while actually accomplishing something!! Also spent some time trying to dial the carb in a bit better on the new Speedex.

Got the GT6000 out, refilled the "wood wagon", and brought it closer to the house. It was only about 1/2 empty, but I thought I'd take advantage of the BEAUTIFUL weather we're having.

I have had fun the last 2 days using the largest tractor of my collection the 55 Ford 600 , pulling a Tram that seats about 30 people through the Florida Flywheelers 240 acre farm all decorated with Christmas Lights for our Christmas in the Village. I have pulled 3 hours each night and get to do it again next Fri & Sat. Sorry no pictures to busy driving.

May not be much seat time, but beats nothing! Today I'm doing some barn/holding pen repairs, and pulling the trailer with old & new wood, plus tools loaded on.

Don't know how I got anything done around here before I got this 782, I picked this up 11/19/11 from Independence KY.
Changed the oils and put a battery keeper on it in the barn.
1st weekend hauled fence posts and materials.
Last week hauled 4 deer out of the valley (all 4 of my boys got a deer this year, I of course had to work at the JOB !! UGHH!!).
Today, I'm on break and hauled a mountain of chips, two trees that were damaged and had to come down from that early storm.
Still going to rebuild the 108, but man is this red tractor nice.IMG_0147.jpg notice my faithful helper had to be chained during gun season, he was not happy)

Thanks, the wife and I think they are pretty special, but then I guess we are somewhat prejudiced...
They are all going to be in again this weekend too, (shot-gun only) I should be able to get in the woods this time ! I'm off until the 20th.
After that Ohio will still have muzzeloader and archery, but I'll be back at the JOB...

Put the skiis on the Sears SS12, and toke it for it's first run in the snow. The snow was of the real heavy wet sticky type. About 8 inches.
Worked really well. The faster you went, the better. Should work great on hard packed trials.

That looks like fun. Looks like you need a little more hight in the front so you're not perpetually sliding forward on the seat, unless it is just the picture perspective.

Yes, it's just the picture. The cushion wasn't sitting all the way down in the pan, and with the spring deat bracket, it's very comfortable.

I ran the leaf sweeper one final time around the yard and put it away for the season. Now I have to figure out installing a Simplicity retro kit to convert a 7000-7100 series blower to fit a Simplicity Prestige.

Ran the old leaf sweeper to pick up pine needles. Got some good seat time though.
