Fall leaf roundup

Recommended Posts

We’re surrounded by acres of trees so fall leaves are the gift that keeps giving. Saturday November 18 rain and wind brought the bulk of the leaves down. 

Worked 4 hrs on Sunday November 19

Hello, I have the leaves picked up,  the city comes and takes them away , I still end up with a large compost pile . I have been having a huge number of hickory nuts  this year. I set the leaf sweeper to it lowest position and sweep them up , but the next day more have fallen . The leaves are off the trees and there are still hundreds of hickory nuts on the branches !!!

Your Shop Progress is looking good !!!   Glad to see the plastic under the slab that keeps Radon from entering the building.

 

Thanks Ken in Mi

I was going to rake the leaves but I waited too long.  The wind blew them into the neighbor's yard - - - darn it.

I hate when that happens.

Nice pic of the little ones Gene.  I would have expected the leaves to be ground up more than what I see in pic.  I use a Trac Vac trailer with the AC/Simp blower driven off of 920 Diesel to do the majority of mine.  With the above average weather we have been seeing, I put a battery back in one of them (Peco style) and sucked up another 4 loads on Sunday.

My Conquest w/44" deck, Simplicity gaters and power blower grind somewhat but not as good as the Peco or other mow & vac trailer systems. I dump a lot!

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul

      I assume it's a bosche, correct
