    Beautiful 129 and mowers! I think I need to get my 129 looking that nice, I do really like the red stipe on it.

    149s

    Yes much better pics than a year ago, you can see 109 and a 149 in this pic. A carport/lean to for the back side of the shed has been discussed. Hail damaged the tarp shed.

    Brinly plow

    I found the thread from this, there were only 2 weights lost this day in 2011. hopefully Kraig drives by and sees a field of them growing lol. now my question is where did my other 2 weights disappear to? I had 12, lost 2, currently have 8, hmmm

    Brinly plow

    Osceola Plow Day was fun! Well they all are or were fun, I am sure I have made my fair share of crooked furrows. I think Osceola was were I planted 4 front suitcase weights, plowed them under and never found them. I think I had 6 on the front, I saw the 5th fall off, and only found 1 of these 5.

    Brinly plow

    Plow depth is approx half the width of the plow. 10" plow approx 5 inches deep. Back in the day on the farm we plowed with 4-16", in some area we did plow 8" deep others maybe deeper, on rocky knolls we maybe scratched the surface.

    Stupid!!!

    Think we have all been there doing something like this - just part of the fun I guess. Every time I change a motor or mess with the coil/condenser I question myself if I have it hooked up correctly.

    Spring garden work.

    Hello Lonnie, looks like the plow worked fine. Good to see you using Cubs again. I find the disk just scratches the surface too, in the past I've added a bunch of weight to i then I don't have enough traction to pull it. Dual up your 72 and you'll be fine in that sandy soil you have.

    Mini 1466 clone

    A Hydraulic lift is in the plans. No way I am trying to lift this myself, I have a brand new right shoulder, I think it would qualify as being heavier than my 20 pound lifting capacity... In 2008 I got got the attached 125 with a hydraulic lift. I think I will do a little better job of...

    Mini 1466 clone

    Sorry I have been slacking on an update. I plowed with this on Saturday. The 1st time I drove it was on Saturday morning at 5am driving it out of my garage and onto the trailer. I proceeded to slam into my dads 149 on the trailer due to the clutch not releasing, and I missed the key when...

    Mini 1466 clone

    5 days away from a plow day and I still have some major things to do, and some issues. Anyone know where I put the link for the internal brake, the link from the clutch/brake pedal to the trans. Seems I remember I need to modify it but I have to find it first, guess this is what happens with...

    Mini 1466 clone

    Wow IHinIN, do you have details on the hood? Looks like I need to repaint my rims, n more. I am thinking my 2nd 128 will be the Mini 1466 in time, this current one will now stay close to the color it is. Meaning sometime in the next 4 years or so
