Just happened to look up my house on google earth awhile back and noticed my tractors in the yard, one was from a fresh tilling job. Just curious if anyone else has caught their tractors in action? Storing them in the yard doesn't count...666

Mine used to, but they seem to update too often and it changes.  Mine are only out when Im using them.  6 or 7 years ago the Satalite caught me tilling the garden.  

The stripes from space look pretty nice right now though...

Google earth tried shooting photos of Josh's   tractor collection from satalite but they needed it to be in a much higher orbit to get them all in the frame.O.o

Would there be a camera powerful enough once they established that orbit?

Well, they haven't updated my town for a bit; the photo shows the mess I had after dropping a row of trees 2 years ago.

And if any of you are into Geocaching, there's one in the trees south of the house.

Yeah, and my 38-year-old Deere needs a new engine. Was going to use a V-twin Briggs, but the engine with conversion kit was over $2000. And I didn't get around to rebuilding the rotted out 60" deck for the Deutz 1920 this winter.  I also kinda think the hydro on it is weak; seems to loose power when hot.
So for $3600 I  hauled this X540 home in my $2500 pickup.
Yeah, I know . . .

There's no shame in a $2500 pickup. 666
