What did you do with your tractor today?

Looks like the tractor was up to the task, Jim! You got some big old boulders there to try not to mow. Since it seems they grow right out of the ground, I'm surprised there's none on our acre. I can't seem to grow anything so you would think rocks at least would sprout---LOL!

Noel and Dac my Sears SS15 is a work horse. I’ve been running chains and 55 lb. wheel weights on turfs for several years with very good results. I did mess up and loaded the trailer with rocks before I started pulling the bigger ones out. I had to pull them out in reverse but the ole girl didn’t even grunt.

Close as I ever got to a Sears, is that I got a late 60's Sears Suburban mowing deck out of the scrap trailer at work. Don't know what I'll ever do with it but it couldn't go to scrap!

That's a great workhorse, Jim! My favorite kind of GT!

We are going out of town for the day tomorrow so no "Mowing Monday" report. I did do it today though! Dry and dusty, a lot of the yard didn't really need it but it's done again. MF12G on our acre, and used that Bolens/MTD LT on the front half of the acre next door again. Soon as I got done with our yard I brought the MF12G in the shop and changed the oil. The electric oil pump I use to pull the old oil out wants the oil to be hot. That went fine too. Had lunch after that, then got on the LT and headed next door.

I picked up one ord tractor several years ago. Got it for a 12 pack of Bud light. Found the motor was wore out and had no power and run hot. Traded to a kid for a short days labor. Bought one Sears and pulled the Onan to put in a Bolens when I got it home. The Sears is in the scrap pile as noone wanted any parts except the fenders. Bolens will go there as it ended up with a bad gear in the rear end. Still have the Onan engine for ? ? ?

Brought the Cub Cadet 50C deck up, washed it off good and wiped it down with thinner rag. Brushed on a coat of Valspar CC matched paint to improve the looks a bit. PO kept the belt cover on and of course that is where the deck rots out at. No holes yet so hopefully the Valspar with preserve it for a few years.
