Interesting. I never realized they were colored for a reason besides just to look different than the glue.The reason primers are colored is so the inspector knows if it's been applied! If your job is being inspected and no primer is seen in the joints you will get to start over!
Another 4+ hours of washing today and she's almost clean. This damn machine traps grease everywhere. I had grease balls the size of golf balls coming out of from the elbow skid plates. I'm glad I ordered the shell brand grease that it comes from the factory, cause that's what I'm switching back to, it's a like a soap based grease. More on that later.
You can use it on an existing grass stand, with varying results. It depends on how well the root structure is with what’s there. Some places it does a great job with overseeding without much disturbance, and some spots it can tear it up where it’s not well rooted. But the results end up being pretty good either way.Nice looking seeder. Could you use it on an existing lawn or would it rip the yard up?
Rows. In the picture with the dirt, it’s kind of showing the finish touch from the cultipacker that’s on the rear of the seeder. It has a PTO driven slicer in the front of it that cuts into the ground to create the seed bedding. 50% overlap or multiple directions ends up being a good applicationDoes that put it down in rows, or random?
Nice! I used a cheap one and it was like I was planting corn. Lol.Rows. In the picture with the dirt, it’s kind of showing the finish touch from the cultipacker that’s on the rear of the seeder.

I ran into the same thing this week, but on the clutch Z-bar for my Nova. I'm changing the linkage to Heim joints from bent rods and cotter pins. I drilled the clutch pedal arm out no problem, but the Z-bar was harder than Kelsey's nuts. A 3/8" cobalt bit wouldn't do much more than knock off the paint, and running a file over it was confirmation it was hardened. I ended up using a 5/16" bolt with a spacer sleeve in the Heim end. I imagine if I heated it up red hot, that may have taken the temper out of it, but decided not to.Dropped the BH and as I started to put 3PH on I thought I’d drill out the drawbar so a 1” Clevis will fit. I think Kubota needs to step up and do this at the factory. Tried a 1” bit in pops ole’ trusty drill press - man is that some hard steel. Switched to a step drill which would have been 1-1/8”. No luck there either. Drank a couple liquid brain improvers, smoked the bit and squealed the press. Gave up gonna take it to fab guy.
Still a positive as I didn’t start a fire.
NEXT season? I'll be mowing for at least another month - and vaccing leaves up for about a month beyond that. I'm a couple hundred miles West of you, but still about the same latitude.
