    Well, I just spent 6 hrs bouncing around 126 acres of pasture, pulling a fertilizer buggy with my L5740. I need 4shorts air ride seat.!

    It was nice to use the bucket again, it mostly just sits and rusts ever since I got the grapple a few years ago.
    I am really surprized you didn't use your grapple to gut the kitchen

    Sorry - couldn't help myself.
    Plenty of work in a kitchen project - good luck and have fun. If you are like me you will be looking out the window alot.

    My day started with a drive out to Middletown to get a load of Ag-lime. Then back to the field to spread it. My Pop actually got quite a bit more seat time than me using the IH584 to pull the spreader. I followed up with the JD5403 and disc. I gotta give a shout out to my F450 though. It walked the walk coming up I-66 and Route 17 back to Fredericksburg. I apologize to the folks who got caught behind me. Even with the tarp, I was leaving quite a dust trail. It was a little windy and I did have the hamma down! 6 tons and the fuel mileage was still in the double digits!

    Got 7 inches of snow over night. My Expedition would go through that easily of course, but my wife's car would not. So I took a 1/2 hour and cleared a path down the driveway before heading for work. Then I got another hour in after work finishing up. The rims on my BX were full of snow when I got done, so I just ran the toe of my boot around the inside of each rim before I put it into the garage. The last one, left rear, started to hiss and squirt out my fluid. So I got it in the garage quick and jacked it up and spun the valve stem to the top. It felt really wobbly, so I'm sure the rubber just gave out. I didn't even feel it when I "kicked" it. Guess I'll be calling around tomorrow to see if anybody can salvage the fluid and put in a new stem.

    When I was a kid once I was kicking the snow out of the wheels on my dads tractor after he plowed and accidentally kicked the valve stem. Broke the thing half way off, let's just say I was not the favorite kid that day.

    I used my air compressor to pump up the pressure (repeatedly) so that it would quirt the fluid out the valve stem. I tipped the tire over so that it would squirt into my oil pan. I captured about 10 gallons of the 11 in the tire. Then I took it to the tire shop and they put in a new valve stem and didn't even charge me for it. I've bought 5 sets of 4 tires there over the years, so I guess they want to keep customers happy. Then I took it home and reloaded the tire. BX tires are small enough that you can still handle them loaded, so I just let lay flat on the floor and let the fluid flow from the top of a ladder using my dehumidifier bucket. Lot's of burps later, it was ready to put back on. If I had a larger tire, I'd make sure to get the metal valve so there was a bigger hole to fill faster. 1/8" is TEDIOUS. But I'm back in business.

    My neighbor recently sold his 60hp tractor (he is moving this summer and downsizing).

    So Yesterday I got 20-30 min of mucking out his run-in shed back dragging with the bucket.

    It was nice to be in the saddle again.
