Recent Tractor Chores

Seems time is so limited lately, but I have had some seat time, and have been snapping a picture or two as I go. You'll notice my new helper has been tagging along, with the warmer weather.

Made the change from winter to spring/summer wear...can't do it alone, so I had help. A few oil changes too =]

Was able to finally use the diesel, and till a couple gardens. I'm a big fan of the 7100 series...I really like the feel, and some of the RBT comforts. And of course, the diesel's amazing!

I also took on a turf-prep job for a coworker. He had a new construction home that needed prep for sod. I used the HB-112 with springtooth harrow, and 7790 with Dutch Grader to loosen and level his place. Unfortunately, no action shots.

The lawn mowing is a thrill, now that I have something green to cut, and I don't seem to give the B110 much love anymore, but she wears the pants in the shop.

I also got the Wonderboy 575 out (never did fire it up last year), and did some fuel system cleaning to get her running smooth. With a new pto belt, I hope to have some pics of 30" reel stripes in the near future.

Loaded up the 3212H and loader, to help out a buddy with some landscaping work. Took a while...I'm guessing 7-8 yards or so all together. I also grabbed some video of him learning to use the loader.

Also, I have watched the weeds flourish around home, and have been using the weedcutter pretty regularly. I trim around the lawn, and along the road and bike path that border my place.

I also noticed that my LH blade wasn't pulling its weight, and was slipping a bit, so figured I was in need of a new belt. Instead, the belt looked pretty good, and I was able to adjust the tension, and cleaned things out while I was in there.

Lotsa slack...

Opposite side...no slack at all.

The idler has quite a bit of adjustment to it

Snug enough now!

And lastly, I retrieved the Squire 6 from it's hiding place in my parent's barn. It needs quite a bit of work, including a new Briggs. I'm planning to take inventory of the parts I need to get her mechanically sound, then hope to get it in line for a redo, after the trencher.

Lots going on, and quite a bit more loader work awaiting. I get so much more use out of that thing than I could ever have thought!

Do I understand those pictures correctly; you have not one but two tractors with front end loaders. I spot both a yellow one and an orange one.

All such great pics Josh...but the baby on the diesel just cracks me up :D:D looks like a little flying saucer on the seat {}

That bike path will give you lotsa seat time w/the weedcutter.

Nice family/home/fleet Josh dOd

Craig, I mayu just have a chore lined up for that Earthcavator! Only have used it once, and it's the real deal.

Tacey, it is a Labradoodle...fantastic dog. Smart as a whip. Shares the drive of a Lab with the smarts and milder temperment of a Poodle. All he wants to do is wait for a command. He's 5 now, and has never stepped foot outside the yard, except when asked. He even does his business where I tell him to, and will swim for hours on end if you let him.
