Late Fall Stripes

Hopefully I've mowed and vacuumed leaves for the last time this season. About time to get the tractors ready for winter. It's been unusually warm here in SE PA so the grass I planted in some areas had a chance to grow for a while. The lawn doesn't look too bad considering what it looked like in October with very little rain.

I mowed/mulched mine last night. Even taught the neighbor a new trick with his craftsman tractor. Heard him swearing a storm at his bagger setup plugging in the thick leaves. Almost every lap he would have to stop and un plug the chute, so I went over and introduced(never met that neighbor). We talked a bit and I suggested using it open-chute to start out so he wouldn't clog as fast. At first he was politely stubborn of "I know how..." so I left it at that and later watched him as I was working on my car.

He switched over to what I suggested and that craftsman was blowing a storm of leaves looking like a silage loader. Once he finished he came over and said in an earnest tone with a smile, "I didn't realize that would work so well. Thanks for the tip."

My primary use for these old tractors is lawn mowing. I enjoy the stripes and nothing cuts grass like a simplicity. Nice work on your lawn! Looks great!

      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!😁
