Im 6' is that short? I think your just tall. All of the tires but one held air. I am going to the tire shop on Monday and get a tube. 12" wheel and tires look so much better than 8". Im happy with the purchase!

 

Thanks again!

Maybe you were slouching. Everyone seems short to me.

 

I thought that was you loading the tractor and plow but was not sure I was down at the end of that row you got the stuff from.No pictures from me from this one.went to take some and the memory card out of my camera was at home.I was wondering how you were going to get the plastic crate on there with the other stuff 

 

I forgot that crate was back there. It made it home just fine. It made a really funny noise at 65 mph though.

I can tell you had a great day by the eloquent writing of your post!  But just one question....per the title, where are the pics of the "2 new hats"

Top row. right to left.

Hats I got to day Oil skin hat, Felt hat.

Yeah, I always slouch... I wish I went today. Instead I came home and worked on the Gravely G16. Such a PITA.

You are welcome to come help me work on this Bolens. LOL. I will unload it tomorrow and get a good look at it. I had other stuff to do when I got home.

NO it has a little wards engine that someone put on it. I am thinking about buying one of those little diesels to put on it. This engine has gas so old it looks like varnish.

Old old hat has a lot of miles on it. It has been officially retired to sit on top of the entertainment center.

Congrats on the bolens willie! you need a torquey engine on it but you'll love the controllable differential. If you need parts for it let me know I've got most of a 1050 wasting away in my backyard.

I was thinking about you saying you had one. I may have to come by and look at it.

well today didn't quite go as planned. After taking apart 7 Mower engines i got one that the exhaust wouldn't let go of so i grabbed the angle grinder. Almost had out cut all the way thru and the cutting wheel exploded grinder wrenched out of my hand spun around and sliced my thumb open. at the er now getting stitches. apparently not grinder proof.
