If it weren't for the deck and the dirty bags, I would have thought that thing rolled out of the showroom!
Thank you, I try to keep it looking good. The deck is almost as nice, but I sprayed it with metal protector half a dozen years ago when I got it. Unfortunately it keeps that dirty look.

Mowing pasture this morning. Forever mowing.

Some of you are still waiting for snow to melt and things to dry out.

I've been mowing since Mid February.

He'll learn to love running that tractor more than he does video games.
He already does 😂 he’s been running it for a couple years now, daughter (6) will drive it around too. Both kids would prefer to be outside over inside 😁

I originally got the bedder on sale at tsc, but it wasn’t quite wide enough to get the tines out far enough to cover up the tire tracks, so added a 2 inch receiver and an atv 60 inch tool bar

Yesterday dig at Lehigh University. Had to use the hoe to get me up on the porch. After doing that, I simply asked them if they'd mind if I just disconnected their railing for the rest of the day hauling materials in/out of the worksite.

In at last..

dig - I was unaware that I'd be digging so close to the wall of glass. Had to dig off center. For those that don't know, doing so easily creates a much wider and gnarly trench. But, it still worked and I didn't break anything.

If anybody asks you if you are any good with the back hoe, this is the pic I would show them. Glass intact, dirt nicely stacked, I’m impressed. Well done.

Where did the root start from? How did it get into the PVC?
There was a large tree about 6 feet away from the cleanout (first pic under the track and mats) that was removed last week. Roots found their way all the way down (6 foot depth) to the cleanout. The root got into the cleanout joint, broke the seam and found a nice source of "water".

Hard to tell if the original joint was primed/glued correctly. Either way, they got thru the pvc connection.

You're way to kind. Looks like an ugly trench to me. As I said, they get ugly when you're pulling the bucket on an angle. I'd rather had the mini to dig it close to the wall like that, but, it still worked out in the end.

I'm jealous seeing all those garden and dirt work projects going on. We still have plenty of winter left here in NE VT.
Tuesday I pushed last weeks snow out of my little log landing. On the way out there I tidied up the road edges and broke an access hole thru the snow bank into where I am cutting. I mounted the camera on the front of the ROPS just for fun. Quality isn't the best because of the vibration but you can see how I use the plow.

Thanks for the explanation. Sometimes simple things lead to big problems, but that's what keeps you in work !!

Boring for those not in mud season.
Tightened down the blade trips for a March Nor' easter.
Less blade trip forces the mushroom shoes to tip up a little higher. Hopefully not dig in and rip up the mud and gravel.
Moving snow in mud season is as much art as brute force. Leave a lot and hope sun melts it or get a driveway of ice.
Either way I have a full humidor and a liter of Bulliet to ease the pain after the fact.
