I'm trying to get my trailer repaired, got some decent repair to do on bed and dog decided last week I needed to rewire it all :wallbanging:

Haven't even looked at tractor, it's still in mowing mode. Have to remove that and re-fill a rear wheel weight as old concrete fell out.

Hopefully I will be ready!

Got about 10 acres bush hogged, and cut around the pond & around field next to Dad's house to start sprucing up for plow day.  Will do more tomorrow & finish over the weekend.  I've got a lot to get done, but it'll all get done!  :thumbs:   I gotta get that porta pot here in time, or I'll have to set buckets behind the barn for ya's!   :rolling:

The buckets give you something to sit on! Just have to cut the bottoms out though!

Not gonna have a hole under the buckets.  Gonna draw names who takes filled buckets home with you to dispose of the contents.  I have lids for "most" of the buckets!   :bigrofl:

Finally got the rear tires on the kubota filled tonight. I squeezed 3 gallons of RV antifreeze and 2.5 gallons of water in to each... on top of the 4 gallons(i think) that was already in each. I don't really see how I fit over 9 gallons of fluid in those tires. All I KNOW is that they are heavy!!! Should help pull that plow a little better.

 

Daniel, Did you all get any rain earlier? Our ground is getting pretty hard right about now.

Bobby, If the ground gets too hard, we'll jerk the bottoms off the plows and chisel  plow his corn fields !! :thumbs: :rolling:

My two cents is, don't over inflate the tire.  Enough pressure to hold the bead, low enough the tire will deform and flatten to hug the ground.

Ground is dry, and not a drop of rain here today.  Might make for some hard plowing if no rain comes before plow day.

I have 6 lbs. in the FF tires.

I drink lots of fluids, but rarely overeat just before and on a PD.

Yup, same here... the lower pressure makes for a smoother ride too!

CORRECTED ADDRESS FOR PLOW DAY IS: 
356 Ball Hollow Rd. 42748 


This is my Dad's place 2 miles up the road. When you come down highway 210 from Hodgenville, our road, which is marked as road #2762 is just feet past the 13 mile marker on the right(about 8 miles past Hodgenville McDonalds). A sign for plow day will be there as well. Just 1/4 mile, 3rd home on left. Another sign will be there as well.
