I brought the leaf blower when I dropped the carry-all….

The Kubota had the snowblower on it….

So I guess I used the snowblower on leaves?!?!😜😎😳

REmoved the 54" mower deck and wedged it into the shed...man are those things ever heavy !!!

Installed the BX2830 48" (yes, those #'s are correct) commercial snowblower onto my BX2380
Took me a lot longer than I thought it would and I had a little help. Was my first seasonal change, so hopefully it'll go smoother in the spring.

Got some UDT2 delivered today - gave the UPS driver a couple of candy bars for her son who was with her (must be contract driver with her own car). Added the gallon I was short when I did the hydraulic oil n filter change the other day.
Then it was time to face facts. Winter is coming. Not having a dragon to clear my driveway I did the next best thing - I took the 'new to me' snowblower out of the basement and mounted it for the first time on the tractor. Greased it and now just have to connect the pto.

Checked my 3560LE lifting 4x5 round bales. Throws em up with easy. Had it on idle and went to three high and I barely heard the pump. I was impressed.

Very true - - seeing some of the pics you guys have posted, looks they do a much better job than my Stihl BG 86 handheld machine.

If I were to look at another implement tomorrow, it would likely be a chipper. I have an older decent sized homeowner chipper/shredder. Probably pushing 30 years old, and I think it has an 11hp Tecumseh on it.

But a 2" hard maple limb is ALL it wants......I've got A LOT of Hard/Sugar Maples on 6+ acres.....

While I do to a limited extent, I'm not supposed to burn brush right here at the house, as I'm in the village limit. I could burn on the south side of the property, as that parcel is outside the village, but a hassle to get there, and getting close to my neighbor's house. We also have a burn ban March and April each year.

Ground up leaves that were blown out of the yard. Did a few passes with the RCR1260. I set height to about 4" and bushhog was level with the ground.

Did more brush clearing. Started leveling the area with the box blade. Through down some seed.

Everything was going well till we noticed the MF383 front tire going flat. Got it back to the barn, took the tire off and found a nail in it. No spare tubes and no patch kit. So, we decided to call it a day and will get the tire fixed this week.

I use a 12V dipstick pump.
Works great, but rather slow.
No spills though.
I do the same thing for years now on all the cars. I had some difficulty getting it down the dipstick tube on the BX23S, so I had to dig out my smaller tube, and with a little coaxing, I was able to get it down to the bottom of the oil pan. The first time that I use it on a new vehicle, I pull the pan plug to see how much that didn't get sucked out. When I pulled the plug on the BX23S, I didn't get but a few drops. Not worth thinking about. When I was younger, I would pull the drain plug, and let it drain all night, but as I got older, I realized that what came out the first five minutes, was enough. About 15 years ago, I switched to the electric drain bucket that came from a marine supplier. Saves me a lot of time and effort.

Installed a SAWHAUL chainsaw holder and a floor board step assist on my B2601 today. The B2601 does not have an option to add the assist step, but thanks to this forum, I learned that the B2650 which does have an assist step bolts right on. Got the step from Messicks.

Clearing this old field for winter food plot.
It amazes me the amount of work I can do on this thing. I have to keep reminding myself “don’t get over confident”

Ouch! Lil Foot :eek: 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.
Just pick up a load or dirt in your FEL.

Well I'm puzzled I have an old ground driven McCormick manure spreader I picked up this year, it's been working awsome, today It got plugged with frozen chunk of hay, i got it cleared out back at barn engaged near manure pile, to test, it worked fine disengaged it drove to feild to spread stopped engaged it and pull a head and nothing. The wheels on spreader turn but the 3 pointed knuckle that times the conveyer and runs the gear just stays but wheel axle turns... inner peice broken or is there a shear bolt? I was frozen keep telling the wife I need a heated cab tractor....

Started on leaves. Blew the gutters on my house, then went down to Dad’s house to do the gutters on it and the other house before starting on the yards and road/driveway. As I was headed down the road, noticed about 70% of leaves are still on the trees and then a little gust of wind created a blizzard of leaves reminding me of the futility of my plans, so I just blew out the gutters and said to heck with the rest of it until more are down. Looking at the carpet of leaves all over the yards and gravel areas kind of drives me nuts but nothing to do about it until they’re all down.

After last year with the pine straw rake and grapple on the Kubota I’m not nearly as concerned with it getting out of control to the point they’re impossible to blow/rake/grapple into the woods.

One of the creek crossings had washed to the point Dad was starting to have a little difficulty crossing on his 4 wheeler so I spent about 10 minutes with the loader and box scrape smoothing that up. Keeping the crossings groomed is about like mowing grass. Tractor cleans it up, creek messes it up, tractor cleans it up, repeat… With rare exception just a few times a year and doesn’t take long.

@NCL4701 i feel like the same thing is happening here. It seems like there is still at least a third of the leaves left on the trees. I cant remember so many leaves still being on the canopy this late in the season.
