  1. I use high quality deck stain (clear). Never have liked having oil on the deck to stain clothes and get slick when wet.....but can't deny it works well.
  2. Mowed 3.5 acres......would have been a lot for the IH badged Lawn Boy we had. Dad bought the 100 in pieces and reassembled it.....
  3. My grandfather always called it "double low".......always made me smile when we'd jump in the grain truck and he'd say, "she's got a good load on, better start'r out in double low".....πŸ˜€
  4. Wall primer is done, ceiling is primed and painted, with any luck by end of long weekend the walls will be light gray!
  5. I prefer this version....at the Farm Progress Show today. 130 engine hp, 16 speed power shift. Diesel powered!
  6. Sorry to see a loss like that. Glad nobody was hurt.
  7. I just had to run utilities 125 feet to my shop. Buried 3/4" PEX as conduit (cheap) and pulled CAT 5 cable. As others have said, I heard mixed reviews about the AC extenders. If you have a clean shot for a shallow trench, CAT 5 is a guaranteed solution.
  8. Yes digital photo......but not digitally enhanced.........those are the real deal!!!!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  9. .....negative probably reversed......πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
  10. Ready for a morning ride on the trailer!!!!
  11. Ceiling is painted, walls primed. Getting closer. Painting 1440 ftsq of ceiling 2 coats with roller is........hard on the neck and back.....
  12. 3.8" Saturday and another 1.5" Sunday just east of Peoria, IL. Came slow and steady, all pretty much soaked in around here.
  13. I'll be there with my diesel Cub Cadet and one of the 1/2 scale implements.
  14. Agree on 4 pm......fruit or sweet corn seems to work. Man do they get pissed in a live trap.....clack their teeth together to try and scare you off......its OK Mr. Gopher, this long hollow metal tube with the wood stick attached to it will make all your worries go away πŸ™„
  15. 89 sheets of OSB later, we have interior walls and ceiling. Added the ceiling lighting so I can have good light to prime and paint...not looking forward to that job!!!

    Cadet 60

    Harder and harder to enjoy when it is always "in the way"......don't we all understand that!!!! πŸ˜„

    Cadet 60

    Don't get rammy with the fwd / reverse pedals.....reverse runs off the camshaft, and the cams break easily if you get rammy with them. Nice old 60!
  18. I spent a lot of time teaching merit badges and setting up camp as a leader. It was fun and the adults enjoyed it as much as the kids.........but I am also glad I passed the torch πŸ˜€
  19. They are Eco OR Boost.......NOT Eco + Boost!!!! Put a boost gauge on one and watch instantaneous mileage read out.....when you cross from vacuum to boost your fuel mileage crosses back the other direction!
  20. Don't forget computer controlled ignition, variable valve timing, 4 valve heads, electronically waste gated turbos, variable transmission shift patterns based on load, 2x and 3x overdrives. It's a lot more that cubes and rpm these days to be both powerful and efficient. For my 10% 5000-6000# trailering and 90% road time the 3.5 EB is the perfect ticket. YMMV....
  21. Well i put 2 and 2 together added 3 and carried 5......and came up with 22,000 telephone poles per hour!
  22. "Sorta lit him right on fire.........." Best line of Wolf Creek Pass......"Chromium plated fully aluminiated genuine accessory shift knob fell right off in his hand...........I said, you wanna screw that back on there Earl?"
