    one of the dryist winter we've had in a long time, Things are starting to grow already. Still plowing though, Horse manure not snow. Use my Farmall "H" for the big stuff and my atv for the small areas.

    im glad winter is gone tell about dec or so. i did pretty good ploing snow this yr. but the last month has been crap. if we got snow it melted in a day or so. plus it would almost be dry. then it snow again and make it all mud. i got a chance to put differnt spring on my home made plow a while back but it still was to trippy. so i added another. seemed to help. i got board this last week and where i have my wheeler stored i used my plow to grade the storage shed drive. since it was all rutted up. it did a fair job, but i have a home built 3pt pull behind system that works alot better on gravel. better hight control and dont leave waves. my plow would dig in and take more than needed and make a mound. but after a bit i got it under cintrol. id like to take my plow off and put it away. but after the road restrictions go off in mid may i have a driveway to grade and spread gravel on. the atv plow would work great for moving it. and the pull behind grader and box scraper will work great for shaping it.

    lol. haha. it was free, and it works....... least if i break somethin i can go to the store to buy replacment erector set parts. lmao...................................! ill ask the clerk if they have any 15ft straight erector set pieces?......

    they were origanly about 12' long if i rember. but back when i was a kid. i lived on a farm that had an old chickin coupe. the steel with all the holes was barn cleaner track that hung from the roof for the crap tank then got rolled out side to dump. i had a a few pieces. but i dont rember what happen to it all. works pretty good. if i need to add somethin theres bound to be a hole that i can bolt it to. i wish i could find a few more pieces.

    WISH I WAS A KID AGAIN!!!!
