I finished up the roto-tiller this week, and the snow has receded enough to find a drag section I wanted to convert to 3 PT it had been under the snow and froze to the ground but this week I could see it peeking out so got the PK with the FEL out and got it in to the shop. The 3 pt hitch is coming along good this afternoon I pretty much got the hitch done I need to find about 10 feet of chain and to paint it then it will be ready to use.

Looks great Gary. Boy I'd like to be making something. Getting some spring fever, but its snowing today. What brand of paint do you use and what do you mix with it. Just wondering, all your paint jobs look great.

Hi Noel the last few years I've just been using rattle can paint was getting it at a Fleet Farm store before going to the rattle can paint I used PPG paint really liked it and had good results with it.
How much snow are you getting do you have much on the ground here its been melting pretty good but nice and slow so our flooding chances a lessened

Still a foot or two in places Gary. But it’s melting slowly. Which is good, like you say. Snow we got yesterday was just enough to make things white. It will melt quick and help take away the old stuff. Another two months or so before ground working and grass cutting.

Looks like you a little more than we do around here I'm guessing ours will be gone by the end of the except for the frozen piles but they are getting smaller also, forecast is for a couple of days at 41 a 48 and 50 on Sunday but they have a bad habit of lowering them we will see
