After reading the outside temp (-16C), I started my B6100. Glowing for 30 sec was good enough. I hooked up an old trailer to transport away junk. It is a 2 km drive (one way). Full ice, so it was an interesting drive. Coming back after 1 hour it was obvious that blue jeans was a bad choice...Anyway, my Kubota was working in the cold.
That was my day.

Used the FEL as step ladder to tie up sap lines.

Bought 5 Gallons of UDT in preparation of firing up my almost finished backhoe.
(should have been completed by now, but I smashed a pinkie by dropping the 10" backhoe bucket on it.) It's amazing how much that little finger is needed to do any serious work.

I fiilled the front left tire as it has a nice rim leak. Then I washed her.

Ouch! Lil Foot I feel your pain.
I did a bit of grading today and found out I need some weight in the front real bad. I let the box get to full of gravel then raised it to high and the front end went up at least two feet. Kinda spooked me, I guess I will get the hang of it soon. Later as I put her up I stood there and admired how good the new ROPS look on her. Now off to get some dinner.

I flushed the radiator....while changing the hoses discovered a ton of sludge in the cooling system

Oh, and I sanded the hood and got it ready for paint.

I finished installing my oil pressure gauge, 35 psi @ idle 45 psi above idle,
I'm happy with that, my Kubota has been rode hard and put away wet before I got it.
My re-wiring repairs worked good, many of the old wires were melted together
so I gutted it and used the search forums and wiring diagrams to fix it.
My Dynamo now puts out 13.2 V @ idle and 14.5V above idle, so today was a
good day!

Had my son put out some hay for me while I was finishing the welding on the thumb I put on my trackhoe. Even though I didn't use it personally I guess that still counts.
Here lately I've been spending more time on my bobcat than anything but at least it is Kubota powered.
