at this point an time...........I am a MAYBE at best.  I have a MAJOR issue going on in my life at the moment and it takes #1 priority!  I should know later in the week if I can make it.  As of right now, if I come it will probably be without any of my tractors.  I had thought about bringing my little JD Round Fender 112 but not sure it would do so well in the hard dirt so I will just leave it at home.

Robert, you do what your heart tells you to do.  Your Wife may even give you driving papers if she feels you need some time to relax.  There will always be more plow days, so don't sweat this at all.

Robert, if you can make it, we'll be happy to help you make a few rounds. I'll need some time to stretch, so the FF will be sitting there.

Just need to know what I need to bring! I have the 10" SH plow on the tractor. The 3-point is ready to go along. I can throw in the 35 lb. weights if they are needed. Anything else I need to load besides deodorant? I hope Brian has room!

You certainly need all the weights you can bolt on!

Do I need to fill the tires too? It already digs holes if it can't go forward!

I'm probably close to 1300 lbs. overall right now with me on it. I could pull the 10" plow 6" deep through sod without the wheel weights and front weights. Those are about 200 lbs added on.

Well, I will definitely be questionable as of tonight. Truck needs some warranty work done to it before it can go.... So hopefully it can get in the shop this week.

Put that hit/miss in there and take off. Might just make it in time!

I finally got my weights back on... each loaded wheel/tire/weight combo is abou 250 pounds. I'm figuring about a 1600 tractor at this point... at 12hp, it should be decent hp to lb ratio :) Trailer is hooked up and I'm ready to load!!

I know I just loaded my tires but should I consider reinstalling my inner wheel weights??? I got 70 pounds fluid in each and 50 pound weights outside. My inner weights were 50 pounds.

Daniel, I finally got back on this site. I was a member earlier this year, but the whole site is different now, and my old profile is gone.

 

I will be bringing my daughter with me, and we will have 2 tractors.

I won't fill the tires for now. The 2500 Peerless is limited slip, so both tires are pulling. Got tubes in the tires and it's a little harder to fill them. You may get some rain as it is going to be moving your way. Got some just NW of here right now. Plenty of thunder & lightning!
