Went to the shop yesterday and started cleaning on my Cub and plow.  I had to get a LARGE screwdriver and a putty knife to remove most of the concrete.... ooops I mean clay from every nook and cranny.  

Today I went out in the rain with the power washer and cleaned my trailer, the plow, the 782 and two more tractors. (In case they had gotten infected overnight). 

Whatever I scraped off and swept up I ought to return to Daniel.   Nature is probably out of balance with that much clay up here in Illinois.    :D     

At least they are clean for the moment.       Rick ​

I think the next plow is going to be purple.  

I need to get a pink tractor set up for Edy's pink plow. 

And that clay is going to stick to every color!        Rick

So I take it the Plow Day at Daniels went on as planned?

I figured with all the rain in our area (and Daniels) that it would have been too wet!

Are there "action" shots somewhere on GTT?

I was wondering about the PINK too and thought just odd lighting and digital cam. But now find it IS pink?  At least the plow share is now bare and shiny-smooth. You'll have to grease that up and be messy now if not using it.  Probly too early for that tho, be using again.

That pink plow is kinda disturbing. I think I'd have left the clay on.

The rain ended up a blessing!  It made the ground plow easier than all previous years of plow days.

There used to be a guy in this area, who had a Minneapolis Moline tractor painted pink with the pink panther painted on it.

A lot of people laughed at him at the tractor pulls! But when he walked away with the sled he had the last laugh!
