A new stack on the mf 10

You might consider a support for the stack, guys have broken the exhaust area casting on the engine with a stack and a low hanging branch.

Thanks, I do have a temporary piece of scrap metal that's bolted to the frame at the base of the grill and clamped to the main pipe coming out but I do want to fab something better, soon as I figure out how I want it to be. When I replace the grill I'm probably going to re route the exhaust back some to avoid cutting into it as the previous owner did so I don't want anything permanent until I get to that point.

I'd never let him on it while operating.
Great way to go. Seen to many people mowing with a 2-3 yo on their lap. Glad to know your a lot smarter than they are. Have a great day.

Stack looks great. Fits the machine.
Always good to see the young ones involved, and learning too

Did some mowing today and the new blades cut great. Do need to fab up a better support for the stack as I'm not %100 trusting off the temp job I did on it.

I think it is great to get the kids involved, so much better than nose stuck in a game boy or phone and I can't wait to get my 1650 running again. Nice tractor you have there.

Cardinal Sin. You don't carry kids on a piece of equipment, including a tractor. Please stay safe.
Well....I was driving our big farm tractors on the adults laps by the time I was 6-7 and driving them on my own by 8-10 years old. I was also riding my dirtbikes all over including to the country stores (along with a few friends and their bikes. I was on my grandfathers lap steering his car at low speeds by the time I was 7-8. My grandkids and my youngest daughter not only ride with me on the tractors but in the trailers too and sometimes they drive them. I try to keep minibikes,trikes and go karts around to start the kids on too. If I'm not careful I may have my youngest driving a semi by the time shes 12. (my oldest is 27,my youngest 6). The difference between today and decades past is people were expected to be responsible for their own safety and the safety of the kids. To use their own common sense. Todays generation is like a herd of sheep that expects the government to tell them what is safe and what the proper and safe way to do things is,they expect the government to be sure that we are only sold safe things to use and if we get hurt it isn't our fault or responsibility. I do agree there are a lot of people who shouldn't even use power equipment in todays society though......OK rant over before I get myself in any more trouble than I'm already in...
