I spent all day today on the Kubota, started out with the disk but I couldn't get the straw worked in the garden. I then stuck on the rough mower and mowed the straw. It worked really well, it chopped it fairly fine and I'm now hoping it will work in better. Going to try plowing tomorrow, I guess I will see what will happen.
After that, I went and mowed the ditch from our farm down to the corner, which is a 1/4 mile. I was wanting to mow the ditch because it was really tall grass and weeds (weeds were 8' tall). I am hoping with the weeds/grass gone, the road won't drift with snow as bad. It took about 6 or so passes to get it all mowed with the 4' mower, after I finished I pulled out into the road to head back to the house, I noticed the 3-pt wouldn't lift??? I then realized I was leaving a trail of oil behind me .
I guess when I was mowing on the ditch, a hydraulic line got between the front axle and the frame. When I pulled out onto the road, the hose was crushed between the axle and frame. I called my brother and he brought over the pickup and towed me back the the farm. The sad part was, the hydraulic hose was new, I guess I will just have it spliced back together and make sure it's tied back!
