Spring and the Last of Winter

Recommended Posts

Here is the last patch of snow on my farm. It's a shady area behind my barn. It has been a long winter. I was taking the 917 to the barn for a summer rest, and could not resist taking a picture of the last ( I hope ) snow.

We had some fluries here in Cent. Pa. yesterday, I hope that's not a sign of a bad Spring. I'm ready for mowing season, I got me a little mower for my 1/5 acre this past winter hope to post some pics soon.Oh your 917 may be tired but it still looks good!!

Looks like a nice tractor. But why put it away for the summer:(? You need to get yourself some summer attachments;). We had a fresh inch of snow Saturday morning, came down til about 11:00, then was gone by 2:00. At least this time of year it does not stay long (usually):D Greg

Greg, The cone clutch is not working on the 917. I have a nice HB-212 to mow with, also our B-210 which we have owned for about 25 years will still lay down a nice stripe. That A/C 917 was a wreck when I got it. It had a twin Kohler with problems, a homemade plow hitch welded to the frame, broken steering wheel, just to name a few of it's little flaws.8C I got a dash tower and steering parts from Sandy Lake, added a Briggs and built a decent plow tractor. I love the Sunstrand for snow plowing.
