Russ, they do look heavy. Looks like your handy work is paying off. What are you making there?

Thanks guys,, I going to put 4 of them big rocks in the ground to parrk my 32ft motor home on so I can make it level out,, Then going to make a bench out of 3 of them,, These blocks was made before the Civil War from what a 76 year ol friend of mine told me,, He had em behind the boat shop where I help him with boats an his Dad had em,, So my friend wanted to get em out of his way so I told em I could pick up them all an haul em off for him, He didn't think my 195 had the guts to do it so I just had to prove em wrong,,lol,, He is the one that told me that the big ones weigh 250 pounds but I really not sure on that but they sure are heavy an I couldn't buzz one end of them by hands,, When the weather clears up next day or 2 then I will try my best to get a vid of lifting them an moveing em,,

I'm just glad you got to prove him wrong. Everyone seems to think "garden tractor" means weak. Friends of mine tell me all the time , "why don't you buy more larger tractors?" So every chance i get i show them just what they can do......The look on my buddies face when his F-150 was being pulled across the yard with my tiny '68 Sears 8XL was priceless. The size did look funny I'll give em that but he stopped talking nonetheless........ :worship:

Hey ;

that's real good pulling power, and it saved your back as well.

Wouldn't mind getting one of them you got, a fine looking tractor and workhorse.

All the best
