Tried out the new speeco "e-hitch". To my surprise, it works with an old 6 foot rear blade from an 8N. :D

Moved the top link connection on my EA box blade and that will now connect too. Yay.

Moved some old panels and gates into the woods to patch a fence line that runs through it and had some limbs and tree fall on them during last weekends ice and this weekends snow. FEL made it much easier than in the past but I am really looking forward to pallet forks as well as a grapple.

It appears that when that tree in your picture comes down, it is going to take those wires with it. Doesn't the utility cut the treetops when they start to grow into the wires?

They do trim the limbs when they get close. It isnt as close as it looks in the photos.

Finally got snow here. We had about 4” over the last two days and a lot of wind. Biggest hassle was the 2’ drift up by the house. Drive didn’t really need done but I scraped it anyway and used the Orange to get today’s mail

Got about 12 inches of fresh powder. Love blowing that stuff lol
That's because you have a cab. I would prefer the wet sloppy stuff any day. It's not as easy to avoid a clog, but something about having a solid stream of snow going into the woods is nice. I'm not a big fan of the amorphous cloud of snow to drive thru.

I did several years without a cab and obviously comfort level is way better but visibility is not always better with the cab. What I have noticed with getting a heated cab is we now get less snowfalls. Go figure lol

Sounds like you fixed the problem, to me. I figure if I buy a snowblower and it doesn't snow all winter.... Hey, I kept the driveway clear!

I've been having difficulty engaging and releasing the female pioneer connectors on my tractor and implement; they seem to be failing.
One of them no longer springs back when the collar is slid open and the other one's balls seem sticky and don't want to release even when the collar is fully retracted.
I always depressurize the hydraulics after operating.
Today I got my order of a full set of new ag couplers from Summit via Amazon. $30 for 2 pairs of M&F
Not supposed to be too cold tomorrow so I might try replacing the old ones.

Today I removed the snow plow and installed the snowblower for the impending storm that is supposed to start around midnight tonight. I also changed the cab's front windshield wiper to a winter version that is rubber encased to keep the snow and ice from clogging it while in use.

Had a few minor maintenance jobs for the tractor today. Couldn’t touch up the gravel driveway because there was still a small area with ice on it. Had time to either chip the brush pile that’s getting a bit on the large side or clear some deadfall off one of the trails. Opted for chipping. Might clear the trail tomorrow.

In anticipation of the storm we are getting on Saturday I greased the tractor, topped off the fuel tanks in my genset and tractor and have all the batteries on chargers.

A delivery person’s SUV slid on the snow and ended up deep in the ditch. I showed up on the MX, hooked a chain to a clevis in the drawbar and the SUV’s bumper and drove forward. In a minute , he was back on the road. Then I realized that the MX was still in rear wheel drive only. I love this tractor.

Perfect example to only engage front assist when needed!

Cut down another Ash tree that has blonded. Not too much on the two logs on the tractor, but was really bad about another 20 foot up. This makes the 6th or 7th one that I have cut down. This is the two butt logs.
