    Funny, I had a dream last night that I was in 4shorts neighborhood my wife and I were driving around and I saw his shop I said oooh thats Paul Shorts shop we have to stop. We stopped he didn't want anything to do with me then I told him I was WaxMan from TBN and he personally showed me his whole operation he had hundreds of employees,
    the shop when on and on he made everything from toasters to tv's . This morning I woke and thought something is wrong if I dream about 4shorts.
    I really have to stop reading his posts.

    Thank you my friend. As I said from the get go when putting the lights on that they'll never be used because I'll never be out in the dark. Well its the complete opposite, I find that because of the lights I'm working a few hours every evening after dark so I'm pretty happy with that.

    But but but... It did happen. It wasn't a dream you looked at the BX and said " I'm ashamed of you! That tractor is filthy, get me cloths and lots of wax". The next thing I know is my BX is as clean as check 6's

    Here's a little tub bit about me. I LOVE cheezies BUT I can not eat any of them two hours before bed time because if I do I WILL certainly have dreams and as we say here in Newfoundland " be in the rats all night ". Its nasty stuff on me. Their like a bad drug. Well now you all know where all these mod ideas come from

    To my friend Waxman. Thanks for the chuckle.

    Check 6--great photos and I love the wheel. On the request for lights with the switch built in, I did that and regret it. My desire was to avoid the extra wiring and keep it as simple as possible but the switches on the units I bought (from an ag dealer) are too light duty and are wired with wire not thick enough). They don't work right half the time and I'm never sure if the switch is in the "on" or "off" position. The switch could come on at 2AM and drain the battery to zero.
    Maybe I'll just try to find better quality switches because the ones that are in it are pure light-duty junk. I don't recall the brand name but they are USA made and I think the name is on the back if anyone wants it.

    If you must have a light with a swich, buy the kubota accessory one. It's expensive but is first class.

    Good point on the switch. When I did my lighting I installed an auxiliary fuse panel and a 40 amp relay with all waterproof switches with led lights in them to show they are on. None of my lights will work unless the ign switch is on. As for check 6's switch he could still use a protective boot that might help keep any water out.

    The lights I bought with the switch built it came with a nice protective rubber cover on them. The switch appears to low quality and the wire too thin so after a few weeks they don't work right. Solution is to replace the switch or buy different lights and wire direct. Other than the kubota factory lights I could only find this one light with the switch built in.

    Well its a long weekend for us Canadians so that gives me some extra time to get some more of my outdoor project done. Got the road down, all the class "A" is spread and I got all the trees removed to widen the road. The pad is laid for the we storage shed as well.
    Next week I'll be getting the 5740 involved in the project as well.
    Its foggy here today with drizzle and at only 4 Celsius and a lot of wind its cold out BUT I'm not quitting. Giving up is not in the equation. Some of these trees were really tall and in a tight area so I went up half way first and cut the first half to make it more manageable.

    Looks like you're really working' the little BX. Now that you have used it... What do you think of it? Plenty of machine or wish you had gone up one size to a B?

    Thank you sir. Well let me put it to you this way.

    In order to get this BX from me you'll have to pry it from my dead fingers. I have NEVER had a tool as useful as this little machine. Its got 32 hours on it and I can assure you its worked like a dog for 30 of them.

    I love the fact it can get where its needed. It sips fuel and its not powerful enough to tear itself up yet powerful enough to get the job done. Even my wife loves the little tractor and commented on how much easier it is to do things around the property.

    The BX TLB are often referred to as the Swiss Army Knife of tractors...

    Just so darn useful/versatile in a small package!

    My neighbor keeps reminding me if I ever sell to think of him first!
