Today was my birthday, I spent all day on my Bolens HT23 and my Kubota L2000!. I tried the new push blade on my bolens today, it worked very well until this evening when I broke 2 out of 4 mounting bolts :wallbanging:. So I need to try and get the broken bolts out and find a new way to mount it. I used my Kubota with backhoe to dig 5 holes for tomatoes, I then filled the holes with manure and now they are ready for spring! :dancingbanana:. I used the Bolens to push under all the garden beds from last year, I am going to plow with it next weekend and also make drainage in the lower garden (tired of the top soil washing away).

 

Spent all day on the tractors and it was 65 degrees out today!, I couldn't of asked for a better birthday!

 

I will have a video of the Bolens with the push blade on Monday

I know, I'm a January guy, too.  Sometimes I get lucky and celebrate with a snowshovel.  :(

Sorry I am late but Happy Birthday. Glad you got some seat time and that definitely would have been a fun day. Did you touch up the two pics of the Bolens HT23 at all? The pics of the Bolens look great, almost like the background has the coloring taken out just a little to highlight the tractor.

 

The Kubota looks great too and I am sure the backhoe comes in handy.

Wow, that sounds like an absolutely perfect birthday! I'm usually half frozen pushing snow on mine. You share a birthday with my wife. I would say happy birthday but it seems as though it already was.

The pictures were cleaned up some on light room, the camera is a Canon T3i. The most important thing is to shoot in RAW format. The edges of the first picture were lightly darkened so the tractor "pops" out more.

 

The Kubota was shot with a LG cell phone :rolling:
