Almost completely installed a dozer blade on the Moto Mower

Now that has to wait due to poor choices...

Replaced belt in mower deck; greased and oiled all pulleys; replaced blades; welded 1 of the wheels back on the deck. After 15 years the metal finally gave out

I bought a pair of 16X6.50-8 tires from WrenchinOnIt the other day. Got them in the mail and put them on the Ford this morning. It needed a set of matching tires bad. These should last for a long time!

Here's what it had on it!

Looks the same as the ones I have on Hulk II. I haven't had any issues with them.

A long day of trying to mow. Started with the Husqvarna until I realized I had a broken spindle mount. Tore that apart to see the extent of the damage. Not exciting. So then it was get the Gravely ready to mow. Take the winter tires off, and put the summer tires and mower deck on. Made one round and the clutch quit. Got that tore apart and found that it started working again. Put it back together and it was 9:00, time to call it a day and the yard still isn't mowed.

I have lots of days like that. Today was not one of them. Graded the drive with the 990 and it worked fine. then had races with the 4 year old on his battery powered tractor. It has been a good day here.

14 steel framed single paned windows on a pallet
Not sure how much it weighs, but it was making the rears light with me on it. In this pic, it's just a little bit positive buoyancy... one hand lift of the rear or the tractor light.

Must be pretty heavy if you aren't enough ballast! :smilewink:

Yeah, I'm glad that weld let go before I got on Alice or I would never have heard the end of the ribbing... :rolling:

Making a front weight bar out of a homemade front blade plate. The cool thing is I can still use the front blade plate for the plow if needed. Still a work in progress so no close-ups yet!
