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?? :-)


Come on over,we will tear the place up

No names or genders here either.  I call them what they are, the G12, H16, G16 etc,etc,  Anyone else around knows exactly which one I am talking about.  Don't have to be afraid to step around the corner of the building and worry about Flo or Suzie watching either.  :dancingbanana:   :dancingbanana:   :dancingbanana:

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.

Each of mine has its own distinct personality and they are definitely females. They love attention and are always vying to outdo each other and be my favorite...

 

No names or genders here either.  I call them what they are, the G12, H16, G16 etc,etc,  Anyone else around knows exactly which one I am talking about.  Don't have to be afraid to step around the corner of the building and worry about Flo or Suzie watching either.  :dancingbanana:   :dancingbanana:   :dancingbanana:

I have too many of one model to use your system. Mine all have names.

The J.D. STX38 has always been Little John, because the  J.D.4040 is Big John. Sounded reasonable to us, lol.

Wacker to pound it down ? ? ?  Strange terms for a packer for this part of the country.  Some call them pounders.  We call them post drivers. Some call them weed wackers.  We cal them line or string trimmers.  Interesting to travel the country side for sure.

Well..... I doubt it, however the one I copied and pasted is the Cadillac, the one he's using is this one:http://www.contracto...tory-Soil-Plate. Clarity is required in order of fairness cause I'll owe him coin on the swap.

Now the BEST part , that bee-you-ti-full machine is coming my way, yep you read it here first!

Clarity (again)..... as soon as he's done with it,(best guestament is 25-30 yrs) Be worth the wait,!
