I had an opportunity to get home from work at a decent time this afternoon, so I got my garden plowed! Although I like using my Speedex 1631 the BEST for plowing (better ground clearance, more ooomph, and just stinkin' fun to use!), I exercised my GT6000 and got about 3 hours of great seat time! Got some pictures taken while there was still enough light. Tomorrow, it'll get tilled/bedded across the slope.

I LOVE playing in the dirt!!!

The garden looks terrific. The GT6000 looks like she was enjoying every minute of it as I am sure you did too. :thumbs:

Very nice job. Good looking dirt too. Do you guys have to import rocks? :D.

Glad you got to play with the GT, let it stretch it's legs a little. Hydro's nice for plowing isn't it?

Actually, I was VERY amazed when I first put in this garden about 5 years ago. The original spot was about 10' x 10' down near the shed. It grew to it's current size, about 40' x 150', after a year or so. Unlike most of this area, which grows an abundance of rocks, this was relatively free of rocks. I say "relatively"........ I've pulled plenty out of it, maybe 5 or 6 heaping loads of that trailer seen in the background of the first picture. The dirt was pretty good to begin with, once I cut through some very thick Bermuda sod. The 1/2 closest to the shed is definitely the best quality, as it's had the most compost worked into it. The rest of the garden is coming along year by year.

Yes, the hydro does well..... better than I anticipated. I try to not abuse it, and it's done a good job. With the 2-cylinder 18HP Kohler, it sounds great when it's workin'! Purrs like a kitten!

No pics from this evening, but I was racing the forecast rain to get the garden hilled across the slope that it's on. Used the GT6000 with the Agri-Fab cultivator to pulverize what was plowed two days ago. Then, used the Speedex 1631 with the hillers on the tool bar to go across the slope. Made beds that were about 5 1/2' apart (a T-post laid end to end made a good measuring stick). I was happier than a pig in slop!

Looks like the GT6000 did a fine job, I'm sure she enjoyed it too.

The best part.. 3 hours of seat time, ya can't beat that.
