Thursday afternoon, I took my 2 wheeler with all the tools of destruction up

the bridge, and started some trail building work. It worked good. Kinda hard to

tell in the picture, but I knocked apart a hump of decayed logs, and filled

in a gulley there. Sure beats the pick and shovel option.

But it wasn't running the greatest, so yesterday after work, I decided to go pull

the carb off. I think that Sears is jinx'd. :smilewink:  It hit a small patch of ice, and sent me

into the guard rail again. The clutch pedal has jammed against the railing, so

I couldn't even take a another run at it. There I was, chewing up the decking.

Fun Fun.

If you look in the background of the pic above, you

can see that the MF1650 with trailer had no problem getting up.

Maybe if you took the outter tires off? Put more of your the tractor's mass on the wheels per square inch cm

I thought you might come and defend the old Sears girl. :D

Yes, if it wasn't for the outer tire, I'd have made it by that ice patch.

I like the duals on there for floatation on the soft ground, especially

at this time of year, and in the snow. I don't work her at all, just cruz around.
