Anyone else wear safety glasses while cutting? I can't tell you how many times they've helped keep twigs from stabbing me in the eye!
I do too. Kids got me these last Christmas and they’re great on a sunny day too!

I always do…..now.

Some years back - back when I was younger and dumber I never wore ear or eye protection when mowing or on the tractor in general. Now - always the first things I grab.

I have a few Hickory trees that produce a lot of nuts. Even though I will do my first round with the chute pointing away from the tree subsequent rounds not. I picked up a couple nuts with the mower which directly hit the truck of the tree and ricocheted right back at me. One nut came probably 1/4” from hitting my eye - and it stung!

Even though I wear eyeglasses full time I now have an assortment of safety glasses that go over my eyeglasses - some clear and some dark - they fit and work very well.

I get all my safety glasses here. Great prices and service plus supporting a veteran owned small business.

I have used SAS safety glasses for probably 15 years... used to get them at cost when I worked at NAPA, and they hold up so well, and are so inexpensive when I ruin them, that it just makes sense.

I use the "sidewinders" .. I just (because of you guys spending my money again.... @MattL @scooterman @coaltrain) ordered a new pair from Amazon ..$2.05 shipped to my door... no brainer.
I wear them on my motorcycles. Very comfy (even with a helmet), and light.

If I could sell the 60d I would be more happy haha.
Show me a pic of it. I could be interested. Depending which arm or leg you want and if it fits my 1026R. :)

Just realized that today is 6 months since I took delivery of my 1025R. Just shy of 50 hrs but that will change now that I'm mowing in addition to everything else.

I still can't believe it sits in my garage! :cool:
It must be Ground Hog Day. I saw the tractor for the 1st time and signed the papers on 12/7, but delivery was 6 months ago today on 12/8. :cool:

Moved a couple cut up trees to a burn pile today. It was great to spend time with a good friend and neighbor and very much appreciated that he volunteered to help. I don’t often see people offer that kind of help anymore... Thank you Ray!

It’s great to have good neighbors. I think mine should get Neighbor of the Year” for helping me today with a dead deer. Not a pleasant task, but he just jumped right in. He’s such a great guy.

You know I have always heard, a great fence makes a great neighbor. But the last 3 places I have lived I have had great neighbors next door. Growing up my parents had a ton of neighbors as they live in town. Many of them were just not good neighbors. Its nice having neighbors who are willing to help keep the neighborhood looking nice. I feel bad for my neighbors as my chickens tend to go hang out with his cows in his barn instead of going into our barn or chicken coop.

I put my "new" seat cover on and removed the left armrest which I don't use. I also took off the seat belt which I don't use. I like the cover and I'm happy I got it.

I changed the front bucket out for the pallet forks and stacked concrete blocks, flower pots, rebar and some other junk on a few pallets and moved them around back of my small shed.

We had two major storms come through yesterday and last night. Usually after storms like that, I have a tree or a couple large branches down in the woods. I rode around my trails and unbelievably there weren't any :unsure:
It started to rain, so I put ol' #1025R to bed.

Looks like you have some pretty good slopes on your property. Be extra cautious out there, and good luck.
Deere's recommendation:
ROPs up >>> seat belt on.
ROPs down >>> seat belt off.
I don't always follow that advice 100% of the time, but I do as they suggest most of the time. A serious injury can happen in any situation, no matter what precautions you take. I would imagine that Deere's safety protocols have a bunch of data to back them up, so most of the time, I roll with the best odds. A roll-over can happen to the best of us, even on level ground.

Thanks for my safety concern. My entire property has slope from near level to steep, but I'm retired and take my good old time. If I think it's unsafe, I won't do it. I've got over 60 years running all kinds of equipment/machinery and with that experience comes the mindset to do things the right way.

I have one of the Chinese copies of that chipper as well. I have run a lot through it and am amazed that the blades don't seem to be dulling at all. It just eats everything fast. Even bigger stuff.

If only you lived closer and I didn't burn that huge pile of brush . I can't see me needing one of these now but it does look like a great addition for those that would need it.
I just got tired of trying to burn wet stuff. Anything this won't chip is processed as firewood.
