Yesterday, after a long and stressful day. I thought I would take the S-16 for a short workout in the garden. My plans were to run the cultivator through it and stirr it a bit to help it dry out. After several passes to get the cultivator set right, it was finally going good. Then, a loud snap between my legs, brought all things to a halt. Drive shaft broke off resulting in a buch of carnage underneath.
In its split second path of terror, it managed to snap one hydraulic line, crush another beyond repair, tried to crush the oil filter. Wouldn't surprise me if the shaft got bent also. I didn't get time to tear it apart to check the engine side at all yet. So who knows what all might be messed up there. So the tired little LT got the job of pulling it back into the shed where it will sit for a while til I find time to tear into it. Almost thought I was going to have to call a neighbor to come over and pull with his Gravely, but the little tractor got it done.
