Darn, thought that was later in the season. Good plowing, maybe I'll get there next year.

Today I put one of my mower decks on the E12M and cut some grass for the first time this season, I want this tractor to become a grass cutter trailer puller, needs better batteries so I can get more run time out of it.

Also still need to fix charger, lights and I think the PTO contactor not so good, mower deck motors seem to slow down a lot more than they should, gonna try cleaning the contacts first.

Well I cleaned the PTO contacts and the mower seems to have more power, holds it's rpms better, should probably put a new one in it but will see how this holds up as it is.

Also got the charger working now, the capacitor was shorted, replaced it and it works, good output voltage.

Also put on some Wheel Horse seat springs to try to get a smoother ride.

Slowly getting better and better.

My brother did that on his E14.   It made a difference.  :thumbs:      

We missed you in Ky.   But you stayed drier in Pa.   Looked as if you had a good time.         Rick
