Changed the oil and gave it a thorough lube job. Couldn't wait to put it to work afterwards so I plowed in the tomatoes yesterday. There all through for this year. Still lots of peppers coming but getting light frosts the last few nights. It won't be long before it's all done.

Pulls the little 6 or 7" plow really easily at 1/3 throttle. Here's a couple pics of it doing ot's thing.

Now that you plowed your garden do you plant a cover crop for the winter ? Your peppers are still flowering too . I might try covering mine to see how long and and keep picking them , Al

I usually plant rye as a cover. They say it helps in affixing nitrogen to the soil. Gonna try and cover the peppers with old sheets. Lots of small peppers there now. Hoping they get the chance to get a little bigger!

Although they fit the wheel, those are weights for a tri-trac. The regular DB weights are not marked with any thing but a bundle number and are plain with no cut outs on them. They sort of look like a Cub ones, but the cub ones have a slot cut in them. The tri-trac ones bring pretty good money, the regular ones not so much.

Thanks Lauber1! I was just looking closely at them and they appear to first have been red, then were painted what appears to be electric blue and lastly, the white that they show now. Looked for any green but couldn't find any.

Thanks for the pictures of your DB. It's nice to see 40-50 year-old GTs still going strong. I sure wish SOMEONE would make a new, small, simply but toughly-built GT again.
