And a Craigslist add

A 3440 that was 4 wd? That's new to me, looks like it would take a little TLC to get her back on the job

Was it a C you found in the airport or a A?

A, I will be going out to meet him this week[/quote

Keep us in mind when you get her home to get pics :)

I'm amazed at how many C's are still out there doing stuff. I have 2 and have seen about a dozen runners for sale around here in the last few months.

I prefer the C over a H , more nimble on cultivators imo

Grandpa is still mowing with the one my great grandpa bought to be his second tractor, it is still on the farm in Minnesota where it was delivered new.

Are you going to HARDOX for your dump body? If you use the dump trailer on your tractor a lot something worth doing is T in a set of hydraulic lines that go from the trailer to the tractor. I did that to ours but I also had to put a shutoff between the tractor line and electric pump because when the cylinders stroked out the tractor hyd oil would get pumped into the electro pump resevoir. If you want I can take a few pictures.

For the limited use I will install standard A1011 mild steel plate. I would be very surprised if I ever wear it out.

Please do send me some pictures of the plumbing, I have committed to what you see, but there is always tomorrow

I pondered quit some time regarding the hydraulics, and in the end it comes down to the fact that I do not have rear services on any of my tractors, so I was going to add some. The Super C doesn't have the hydraulic tank needed , and it's pressure would limit the lift. The electric pump was really reasonable and let's me drag top soil home with the truck.

3 truck loads of topsoil, 40 or more carts full behind the lawn tractor, a bottle of ibuprofen, and that dump trailer is climbing right to the top of my priority list

So we bedded the last of the flowers, and set up a water supply for irrigation, weeded the flowers, gave them a good drink and that's a day

Fishermen all laid off?

You would think. It may just be to early, there are a bunch of fishing vessels on the beach being worked on to. I see the campers are slowly trickling in to.

We had a light winter, and an early spring. The green up was almost a month early.
