Hi, well yesterday it was 87*F+ here in WC MN, had the 1614 out and mowed 1.5 hrs last mowing of the season around for the PK will be sucking up leaves later with the Husky, anyway today its 46*F with the wind blowing up to and + 40 mph. So I removed the mower deck cleaned it up and greased the spindles so it ready to go in the back for winter storage. Now its to install the snowplow / dozer blade and that's going good have to fabricated a lift rod and get that adjusted as needed and install the trip springs when they get here and the plow will be ready to use. Also changed oil, the engine now has about 11 hrs since OH.
I'm thinking of removing the single spool hyd control valve and installing a dual spool valve and adding hydro-turning to the blade, that would be handy.
Got the lift rod fabricated and installed the blade, run the PK outside to try the dozer blade and and man oh man am I impressed it moved packed gravel better than many 3pt blade will, set the angle and smoothed out gravel ridges I made. I like it it is a good implement.
