I have seen them @ Northern Tools.
They are available via the company website, Tuffjug.com or also at Amazon...
But I didn't see the Yellow Jug/Yellow Cap combination on either location...
Until I bought mine direct, I was planning on a white jug with yellow cap for the Diesel.

Nothing today. Snow is going north or south of us. We are just 14 and chilly. At least the ground is freezing up so I can get on some trail maintenance this weekend

We are having a bit of snow now, not enough to cover the grass. The light snow sets off the trail I bushhogged across creek on hillside a couple of months ago. Normally, you can't see it from the house, but the snow shows the outline now.

Taking off tomorrow for a bit of storm cleanup. Thankfully just blocking a trail and nothing on the houses. I sometimes wonder what people without chainsaws, tractors, and chippers do with this type stuff. I hope I never have to find out first hand.

Did a good 'walk around' the tractor to check for any loose hardware. Good thing I did, found the double nuts on one of the Pat's Easy Change clamps were beyond loose. They were near the end of the threads. Tightened them up and added a little Loctite for good measure.
Connected battery tender and topped up fuel tank. Getting ready for 1st real snow of the season tomorrow. Even dug out my winter overalls.

Hopefully it will be an uneventful test for my new motorized snowblower chute.

This morning was the first time moving snow around in the dark with the new tractor. I'm pleased that I opted for the work lights but am definitely adding three sets of LEDs.

We got about 3" between 4am and 1pm in west Tenn.

After it stopped, I broke out the redneck snow blower.

If we get much more, I'm going to have to get me one of them cab models.

We've had warm weather, so the ground isn't frozen.

Cleaned up the 12” or so of snow we got over the last day with the new snow blower, very impressed with it so far.

Put skids shoes on the bucket. We're getting snow overnight. At the rate they are down grading it will be sunny and 60.
The idiots started at 5-7 at noon, now (6:30 pm) its down to 1-3.

I wish I could be as accurate as a weather forecaster, while we got some snow (maybe 12”) it was forecast 12-20 inches and started out as 2-9

My neighbor sent me a text at 4:30pm this afternoon asking me if they could pay me to clear off their 300 yard driveway since their contractor was AWOL and one of their tenants keeps getting stuck on the driveway. I told them $100 would cover my time, fuel and possible damage. I spent 1-1/2 hours getting their driveway cleared. They've been driving over lots of snow and frankly I haven't seen anyone doing snow removal for them this winter. The snow was well packed and quite deep in places. It's not hard work sitting in a warm cab listening to music and the $100 seems fair to me. Their driveway is steep so it took me a few passes before I could even begin to push snow uphill.

The lights did well but I'd still like more ... a lot more. I'll put the $100 towards something for the new tractor! This is my first time receiving money for tractor work. :D

I suggest that you post back the sides of the driveway because the next storm you will be out of places to move the snow. I learned this over 60 years ago from an old-timer that used to plow where I lived. If you are not certain what is under the snow, then angle the blade and put it 2" above the driveway.

Great advice for sure! I don't know if I'll be clearing their driveway again but if they want to make this a regular event I'll definitely need to do something about all that snow building up. I have a blower on the back of the tractor and now I know that the driveway is clear of rocks I could blow the snow off in the future.

Spent some time hooking up my new LandPride QH05 quick hitch to the 3 point arms. Then I backed up to my B8160 16 years old weight box, only to realize that it will not attach to the quick hitch. That was an hour wasted, and my hands were starting to get numb from the cold. Got it hooked up to the 3 point hitch, and spent more time adjusting the lower arms to take the sway out of it. This spring I will be breaking out the plasma cutter (friends) and cutting that weight box apart and fixing it to work with the quick hitch.

Loader finally came in. Purchased with tractor in May but did not make it to us until Dec. 23rd., crazy!
Yes, dealer installed and delivered two days before Christmas.
Put it to work immediately.. I didn't even know that Ash tree was in my line of Locust trees. Took out 1 fence post and 6 boards. Had to get the fallen tree out of there before I could tackle the fence.

Not much. Cold this morning, and sounds like Chanceywd and I are getting some ice early tomorrow.

Just started and ran it a while to warm up. Topped fuel tank off too.

Just an aside, the new shop stool isnext to tractor. Amazon. Taller and bigger seat than the HF one I broke, but like it so far.

Waste line dig turned into a muddy, slushy mess of a time. Why don't tenants understand that when you say, don't use any water, that means sinks as well??? WTF?

Starting the day off in the snow:

Backed into a corner to dig along short wall:

The cleanup in the dark looked like a bomb went off. Probably need to return at a later date to finish grade. It was a cold, wet, miserable day, but the line has been repaired.

Two thumbs up on the HDPE dig mats. They work awesome making backfilling much easier.
