Getting Ready for Spring

Recommended Posts

I just got off the phone with my local Simplicity dealer and have made arrangements to have my machine picked up and serviced. In addition to their $99.00 complete Spring maintenance package(oil, filter, plugs, blades,etc. I am going to have them fix the gearshift where I broke the indicator plate. Also they are going to fix the brakes and add wheel weights and also a mulch kit. Plus they are picking it up at our old house and delivering it to our new house. I can't wait. I am sooooooooooooo excited about having my four wheeled orange therapy device back in my garage. I am a strong believer in lawn therapy. Even sitting on it while it is not moving or on helps. Sure I am probably going to spend $300.00 to have everything done. I could probably do some/most of the work myself but I don't have the time. I guess that's what separates us from the box store tractor owners. We will do what it takes to keep our machines in good form on a regular basis.

Spring will get here sometime? Here in MN we got about 2" of fresh snow and very windy so it drifted on the roads and stuck so they are hard packed snow and full of ruts. +34 so the snow is wet and heavy. I did swat some Mosquitoes on the post some one posted the otherday:D Need the practice? The only thing the screen should have been just about solid with them to remind me of last summerB) +40 by the weekend^ When you get your tractor back it's ride & drive!

We got 6" of snow last night and this morning in east-central Indiana. I did nothing. It was melted down to about an inch or so by the time I got home from work. I've only plowed once this year.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
