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?

The last three pages of the 2016 Ball Hollow thread has lots of pics.

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!

But Rick, you know you enjoyed every minute of packing that clay into that pink plow!   :D
