Well the weight box is complete. I finished loading it with some weight and got a picture taken before it got too dark. I think it will make a difference. We will see once the white stuff falls and stays around. The frame under the weight is made out of a garage door opener frame rail with a piece of plywood bolted for stiffness and to keep the bricks from falling through. I had an old ratchet tie down that the strap got damaged and the pieces left over were perfect for this application. The frame is mounted to the bagger mounts and pivots down when the tie down is released.1128101630.jpg

I have decided I have to get the plow ready on the Ford LGT 165. We got a dusting of snow on thanksgiving, and it let me know winter is about here.

I checked over the 1650 Snapper with the blower on it. Gassed it up, checked the oil and gave it a second going over. We are supposed to get 5 to 8 inches of snow starting Friday afternoon and ending sometime Saturday morning. I'll see if I can talk nice to the wife and see if she will take some action video for you guys.

With Tractor of the Month requiring Christmas decorations I took the 800 (Pretty in Pink) and added some lights and garland. Took some pictures and will add them to the post. I decided to enter it in to the featured tractors :D

The other day I noticed that one of the chain tensioners on the inside of the rear wheel of the WH 314 was broken. I went to TSC thinking that I'd walk in there and have to choose between 8 different types..That was NOT the case! They had one each of one for a passenger car, one for an ATV, and one for light trucks! Even the new sets of chains didn't come with them! So I bought some small 1/8th " chain and some generic (3/4" X 2") extension springs and made my own! We'll see if this one dry rots! I also installed the cable guide and bracket for the rear hitch assembly.

Working on the Bush Hog D4-10's hood trim. It's stainless steel, so I'm polishing it, plus cleaning up & painting their rusty mounting clips.

Well I didn't work on my tractors today but I did work on a couple of other peoples equipment. I repaired a fuel line for a neighbor on his Simplicity 860 SE walk behind snow blower and I also switched the mower deck for the snow blower for my pastor. I do the accessory swap every fall and every spring for him. He has a Sears Craftsman DYT 4000. It is usually a quick swap but this time the motor wouldn't start on the tractor. It got flooded and took a little unconventional remedy to get it going. Once it started, it ran fine and cleaned itself out.1209101948.jpg Sorry about the dark picture but I finally got it going after dark and needed to work by the headlights of my car.
