As i was pushing some dirt around the other night i started wondering who was still mowing there lawns an if anybody has moved any snow yet this year. Its still in the 50's to 60's here where im at an was thinking of putting the mowing deck on an going over the back yard to level it up some.

No tractor time here in weeks!


All the stuff is put away for winter and the ones with the blowers are waiting patiently.

From the lack of new threads on the forums I'm guessing not too many people are doing tractor stuff either???

Seat time tomorrow for me. Snow storm coming, not a big one thou. Changing to ice pellets in afternoon. Just a mess, thats all. Other than that, slow time, grass and garden work done, so these times are used for service and changing attachments.

Just moving a little wood on the weekend. Not using much yet. Just burning a little to keep the chill off.

I am not getting seat time. Thankfully. I am so happy with how little I have spent on heat. Tractor is a mess, I haven't even got the snow plow on yet.

No seat time lately, other than office chair stuff looking for work. May get some tomorrow if it get's as nice as they say.

Lawns been cut and buried under 4" of snow, the neighbor has been doing the front walks and step, so snow removal isn't a problem. I'm hoping to get a serious dump that I can pack down to test the dozer.

The winter has been weird here.

Seat time is seat time with recliner computer or motorcycle, or any other seat for that matter as I'm sitting in my recliner on my cell phone writing this.

I cut and hauled out some wood with the Page today, and started assembling the T92 transmission for the basket case '56 Power King tractor that I picked up a couple of years ago. I didn't plan on working on the Power King just yet, but I really like using the Page and it's somewhat similar. Just saw a flash and heard thunder. If the rain comes down hard I'll be fixing the driveway with the Big Ten.

Just had eight cord dropped in the yard in 8' length's that my BIL and me share, I bought it for 550.00 a good deal unless you get it for nothing. Any way we own a rapid fire splitter from D&R and my 64 landlord and cart provide the wood moving to our racks. Although we have had little use for it, its good to be prepared for that morning when its 6 degrees. So tomorrow we begin breaking it down chain saw splitter and lots of GT seat time. We also have several cords ready to burn.IMG_0875.JPG

Too wet here to do any dirt work. The leaves have been taken care of and the grass is still green, but I might just mow to P!ss off the neighbors. No snow predicted until after the first of the year, if even then.

Should mow, but decks are off, blades on now.  60's lately and now rainy. End of week in 30's for a few days and back up warmer or next week again. Santa's gonna need wheels on that sleigh this year. I haven't even done my first walk-around and start ritual which I do so often, just to keep things working and battery's up. Hasn't been cold enough yet.
