Took a week of vacation and today graded where the dozer took out the fence, ran the landscape rake over it too. So the rough grading is done until they get the fence in so I can sow grass.
Mowed 1/2 the pasture raked down the garden (I had run the middlebuster through it again to dry it out enough I can till tomorrow.
When I was coming back to the house I noticed it had 554 hrs, so i have put 100 hrs on it since I got it in September
I have lost track of how much fuel i have used but it sips fuel. I put the first qt of oil in it today, and I do not consider that using oil. I will try to get it changed this week.

No Problems whatsoever

Correction 664 hrs, it had 551 when I bought it.

No, not enough oil usage to be any concern at all.  Even the best diesel engines use some oil.  In auto terms, that 100 hours would convert to 6 or 7 thousand miles!
