....and you guys thought I might have some 1 of a kind never before seen implement :D

 

Nope, just used the ole Suburban as a bush hog, really could've used a bigger tractor with bush hog, but gotta use what I got.

I normally cut this field twice a year and stay on it, this is first time I've had time this year between so much rain and just trying to keep up with grass cutting of 5 properties.

Had to replace mower dive belt Saturday morning, but she cut great along with a new set of blades I got from ARTI.

As you can see, some was a foot taller than tractor. Still had some "stems" sticking up, but they got de-leafed so hopefully they die. Some spots had dead grass that had fallen over, it was close to 4 feet tall.

That black and white looks good.

 

Yea, just wished the upper nose cones were as tough as rest of the tractor. :wallbanging:  I cut for almost 4 hours at mom's, her neighbor's, and the field then get caught up in a low lying tree branch cutting neighbor's yard next door to me.....

looks like you repaired it once already?

when I had mine, I used steel rods inside and epoxy to repair it. I even put a plate over the top all epoxied together. Followed up by a skim of bondo and primer n paint. the only way you noticed was if you put an original next to it and saw it had a thicker front edge.

I use to live close to Hamiltucky, and have relitives that still live ther.I do not getto visit as much as I would like.

 

Really? I am actually north of Hamilton just out past fairgrounds in FF twp. I try to stay away from anything west of Rte 4 and also the knob.

....basically the whole town. It's become either ghetto or little mexico.

 

 

Yes, it was repaired once before. I made some metal plates on bottom and screwed to the bottom lip instead of top. I also welded in a couple angle pieces to make new holes for mounting screws since holes were wallered out.  My neighbor who does auto body had filled, sanded and primed it, looked great. Well, welds snapped, brackets bent and it all busted up. I have the nose from my ST16 restore right now to get by, I plan on making new plates, probably through top this time and filled it all with fiberglass/bondo. I don't care if the whole void between upper/lower lips is solid bondo, had a car or two like that :D  This is my work tractor so as long as it is functional and still look half way decent, I will try for repair. Maybe someday a better nose will fall in my lap for cheap!!!

I lived in Colerain twp just off US27 inside Hamiiton co.
I repaired the grille on my ST16 by re inforceing it top and bottom and L brackets for the hinges. Traded it for the GT18 in the picture

No, it's on an old peach tree an about the only large limb left on tree, ole thing is on it's last leg. Been holding off cutting whole tree down since we planted it when my son was 1, kind of his tree.

 

I lived in Colerain twp just off US27 inside Hamiiton co.

 

Haaa, we thought about moving down to Ross, but decided to stay put.
