Planted a Arizona Ash tree today. Used the bucket to dig a 7 foot wide 2 foot deep hole. I needed to break up the hard pan soil so tree has an easier path to grow. Used the tractor to haul the tree box, bags of manure compost, and mulch. I am going to water the dirt for a couple of days and do a final grading and then put cedar mulch down,

In this case, it is What did I do TO my MCUT today?
I marked the level point for the forks (as opposed to the bucket) and painted the fork tips flourescent orange to help me see them. I fed George as well. Funny, the 8 gallon tank showed 3/4 full on the gauge but took justy over 5 gallons. I am wise to his ways. He is an optimist on fuel.

Thats an excellent idea. I've stuck mine in the ground when going down hill at the bottom. Don't ever want to do that if your going any fasters than dead slow. I can see without a bh weights and beet juice to hold you down flipping her pretty easy.

I really can't take credit for the idea.

Drove over to Kenny’ and picked up extensions for my SCV hook-ups to clear the Mauser cab. Also got a set of the legendary PSRumors seat springs. Hoping to get the tractor back next week to try the new lines and springs.

Kenny was an awesome host, got meet his family and his pups and see where the magic happens. It was amazing how busy they were getting everything packed and shipped. It is neat to see the equipment he has to prototype new ideas and make things like my hydraulic lines.

Thank You Kenny and family and enjoy your holiday Monday.

I dumped and spread some rock. The path around the house is wet and getting torn up by the tractor. I have found large drain rock packs into sod and will stabilize things nicely. It looks nice while the grass grows up through it as well. But the truck doesn't fit well with the dump trailer. The tractor moves it well and the trailer is stable enough to dump it hooked to the hitch on the fork attachment. I don't have a spreader gate on my trailer but with the control in hand and being able to see under the trailer it is easy to spread it. Then switch to the bucket to back drag it out. I have a heavy cable on my tractor from the battery to a plug for the trailer so the alternator keeps the battery charged as well.

Mine grew a beard today


I was surprised, the water temp was running normal, I stopped to use the restroom and then cleaned it off.

But I'll bet it didn't over heat


Edit- I just saw the last words of your post.

My 2032R gets covered like that too, initially I used to clean it off mid-mow, now I don't bother. Like yours, water temp stays rock solid where it always is.
