Started off today about 5:30 to a loud clap of thunder and started to pour. Did chores in the rain, then back to the house to check the radar. Looked like there was going to be a window where I had to go, an hour due West. They had 4.5" there last night. Hook up the trailer and loaded the winch, battery, etc. and took off, in the rain. Drove in and out of hard rain all the way. Got about a mile for the pick up point and it quit raining. Got backed up to the tractor and hooked the cable on and started to pull. Of course with both rear tires flat nothing was about to turn. Drug it up on the trailer all the way. Went easier once the tires got on the wet trailer planks. Strapped things down good and took off. got about 5 mils back East and ran into rain again. Had rain all the way home and until about 2 hours after I arrived. Really lucked out with the open window of no rain to load in.
As several have said, lot of work to do on it. Going to pick up a couple tubes in the morning for the back tires. Will put a couple patches over the holes and duct tape the tube good where the holes are it will be good for a while, at least to move it around. Need to work on that blade too. Cutting edge need turned over and rebuild the swivel catch. No ignition switch so need to come up with a wiring diagram for this tractor and get that situation taken care of.
