As nice as it turned out after redoing it,she has to earn her keep and not sit there being a show piece,I needed to get some gravel down while we are having this very warm December,sure a lot better than spreading it by hand,about 10 more tons and I'll be in good shape

Back-dragging with an FEL sure makes for smooth gravel!  She's sure earning her keep.

That's right plus the you have to keep the ol'20's moral up, it sets and you use another... pretty soon...
Hey that's why all my tractors are guys, utilitarian beasts that they are. You refer to them as girls, pretty them up, next thing you know it's on. Guys will settle it, you make have to replace a headlight or two, girls, holy crap! Where do you start.

Seriously ,good move on the limestone, it looks great, you want the wacker to pound it down? Be very pleased with results.

Well, maybe calling them girls can be taken wrong, but I look at it this way.  Our women (girls) take care of us brutish guys who don't always look out for our own well being, but our "girls" take care of us in all aspects, and that's what our GT's do for us as well.  And just like with our wives, we also do our best to take care of them.   :thumbs:

First you guys NAME your tractors, and Now you even have genders for them! :(  They are Machines, no names, no souls, no genders.  A tool to use and work with. Sheesh!

So it's wrong that I refer to my GT as Bonnie the Bolens?

Is it lonely in "grumpyland"?  I think you just operate in a different way than most of us.  I prefer a lighthearted way, but to each his own I reckon.

Now THAT looks like fun! Just type of thing it was built for. :thumbs:  :thumbs: That type of work is one my favorite uses for a tractor. 

 

You really come to realize and appreciate with a job like this how handy the foot operated hydro is. It sure makes work a lot quicker and more efficient; not to mention, a lot of fun too! :D

 

She looks great, Rick!!

 

Can I trailer mine out and we can tag-team?? :-)

Tag-team is one thing, just don't leave them together in the shed overnight----- you never know what might happen, lol. It is almost Christmas and little baby tractors would sure be cute.
