not sure which Ford you are referring to, but the Model A is original and the tractors have been repainted

Got the Massey w/FEL out to clean some individual calf stalls, then much out a group pen. She's in need of a carb cleaning though....runs good on top, but surges at mid throttle, and dies at idle setting. Got my job done though. Time for diesel re-power is nearing.

I replaced the drive auger chain on my 84 inch Erskine snowblower today . I bought the replacement chain five years ago and kept thinking I could go one more year before I replace it. So I got five extra years out of that original chain . Now I wonder if I should have waited one more year, ha,ha,ha . I won't throw away the old one because I can always use it as a backup , tee, hee .

Got to play with two tractors today. Used my Gravely with the power broom attachment to "sweep" the carpet of pine needles into windrows at my dad's house. Then went back and used the Massey 12H to pull a trailer along between the windrows and loaded the needles into the trailer and hauled them away. Then I asked my son, who was fooling around with one of Dad's old 2 sheeve block&tackles if he wanted to build a crane to pull up some posts. He said "YEAH!" cause he thinks cranes are the coolest right now. So, I made a quick A frame from some 2x4s that were lying around and showed him how to pull posts out of the ground with it. I'm going to have to edit this to post a youtube link. Both he and my wife were amazed to watch me use my tractor and the A frame to yank posts out of the ground.

Put the new engine i got for my Supper Tuffy Runs good but I think the condenser is no good because if it runs for more than 15 minutes it.starts running like the points are closed up but i know that's not the problem, but none the less i can pull it apart and get to repainting it.

I just realized there is a whole other section on "what did you do with your tractor today''well if it helps i did a few passes in the garden turned some ground that should be FROZEN!

I shouldn't witch about having no snow and 50 and 60 degree days because it.s only February and we still have 2 months of snow season left and it will all come at once. Two of my machines broke down in 4 inches of snow i guess it could have been a lot worse like last year where we got just about 4 feet of snow in one week!
I haven't fixed anything like the transaxle on my JD I have been out in the back 2 1/2 chipping up the mountain of brush from some trees i took down at the start of last summer for fire wood for the shop that i really don't need because it's been quite warm. It's all starting to feel like a big waste of time come to think of it i haven't lit the stove once this year I ran the torpedo heater a few time to take the chill off on rainy days but that's it oh well I'll have plenty of mulch this spring.

We NEVER get any snow here, that is probably why you want to live in Mass. All I do with my tractors is mow grass and haul stuff around the yard and clean them up to go to the tractor shows in the winter.

It's 72 degrees @6:oo PM and no snow, thank goodness. Used my garden trailer to hall the chicken feed from my truck out to the chicken house. Thought I would mow around the house but found the mower would not engage and looked to find the belt off the engine drive pulley. Put it back on and it still will not engage so tomorrow I'll check it out to find out why and repair. Hate it when things don't work.

Went and picked up a snow blower today got it cheep because the pull cord broke and the starter drive finally wore out fixed the cord in a blink of an eye runs good everything works including the light, i have a JD with a snow blower on it but the transaxle went bad on it and i don't feel like fixing it right now so i got this to finish out the snow season. Well it is the snow season but yesterday it was 53 degrees and today it was 60 degrees i was outside in a t shirt but at the least I'm ready for some heavy duty snow.

Have been moving a couple 10 wheeler loads of horse manure to make room for more. I should get a picture of the finished pile.

Got a bit more seat time today finishing moving the horse manure. I tried to take a video but my camera only takes 3 min videos in low quality and the battery goes dead in the cold. Here is what I got.
