    I'm ready to till the garden. Just wish the garden was ready.

    My front Heavy Hitch weight bracket arrived today, so I decided to switch the 1026R over from snow to spring work.
    Last year I used the tiller on a 2720.

    Nice looking setup, ChrisR , you said you tilled your garden last year with a 2720, my FIL doesn't like me to till his garden with my 1026. So at age 86 he's out putting his tiller on his MF 1655 . Reason because his garden tractor weights maybe 1200 compared to our tractors.
    Most of the time he is in a hurry to till the garden and his ground hasn't dried out enough to walk through let alone a tractor.

    We're all waiting for something! I forgot I wanted to remove an old/large spruce stump next to the driveway and piled 6' of snow along there... It is going, but I'm helping it hurry up with applications of stove ash to suck more heat out of the sky and melt it.

    I know what you mean. I built a pole barn so I could get my work truck & trailers inside. Now it is too muddy for me to get to it. I have to get a tree cut down & sump ground out before I can do the drive. It is too muddy to do that.

    I'm in a similar situation. I got the snowblower because I don't like the piles of snow left from plowing (that and having to dig the piles of plowed up dirt off the lawn). Now I have blown all of the snow from my parking area to one location off the side, which is the access to where I have stored the FEL and Backhoe. Since this winter got started late for us and it seems to be not letting up (22" still on the front lawn and snowing as I type), it looks like the end of April before the snow melts and there is 4 to 5 feet between me and my backhoe! Once the snow melts down to a few inches I'm gonna go snowblow down there.

    Anyone else move snow off their garden plot?

    I've been so anxious to use my new 1023e for tilling the garden, I used the SB and FEL to remove the 4' of snow piled on top of my garden. I'm hoping I'm not the only crazy person here!
