    I GOT SOME SEAT TIME!!!!!

    First time in over 5 months!!!!

    I moved around the dirty bales of hay that I formerly used as the base layer for my horse hay storage to make some room for getting my attachments under cover.

    Well, I fired up the tractor (good Lord it was filthy) and dropped the stump grinder in one corner on a pallet, I piled the bucket, tooth bar, and ratchet rake outside the door. I went back up and hooked up the grapple again, and then the BushHog.

    I also hosed the cutter and tractor off because they were seriously filthy.

    My improvised PHD stand blew over a few months ago and dumped the PHD into a pile. It is the only thing still laying about outside needlessly (I've not figured out a place to put the bucket, tooth bar, and Ratchet Rake inside yet...)

    Regardless I got in at least an hour of ACTUAL SEAT TIME, and I loved every dirty second of it...

    More next weekend! WOO HOO!

    Thanks, I understand, it is pretty funny looking. Hang on for more, going to put the brush fork on the TORO tomorrow.

    Yep, the V417 is the best "tractor" that I have ever had!

There are only three reasons I'm still using it: Our lawn is too big for a push mower, I can't afford a "real" riding mower (in addition to my SCUT), yet, and I also can't afford a real "bushwacker" for the weeds on the rest of our 5 acres.

    Anyway, as soon as I can afford a riding mower and a 3-point bushwacker, the mid-deck is gonna get trashed. It works well enough once it's installed. Today I was wacking through weeds taller the tractor; but, getting it hooked up or disconnected, even AFTER all of the fixes, is a REAL pain. The problem is that the tolerances are REALLY tight and the "docking" components are still mostly cheap "pot metal" rather than steel - so, they break or bend and then nothing works (until, you bend stuff back into alignment).
    clayj -- I've had my BX25 with MMM for a couple years now. I'd say the first summer I was disappointed that I didn't buy the drive over instead. The commercial does make the JD driver over look desirable and if you don't have experience and if your dealer doesn't show you the correct way to mount the MMM on the kubota SCUTs, you will fight it until you figure out exactly how to mount it. Now it takes me more time to roll it under the tractor then it takes to hook it up. Until your post I still thought it was as simple as the commercial but thinking of what you said about the tolerances I can certainly understand how it may be a problem.

    Did my traditional Labor Day fall mowing under the old wild apple trees we have spread around our woods. We have a coulple dozen of them and I can get to about half with the mower. It is a little cumbersom using the sicklebar in small places but it is able to reach under pretty good. We have a ton of apples this year.

    Today I did some pasture mowing at my in-laws. The local residents came out to inspect the big noisy orange thing that was invading their field.

    I used the B7500 to bush hog last year's food plots. I mowed more briars on both sides this year. Last year the briars were so tall I wouldn't see the deer until they stepped into the food plot. Now I will be able to see them coming. Also cut some brush under one of our big oaks that had grown up with yaupon. Down here if you sit still for an hour, the yaupon will be growing between your toes.

    Turned over some summer food plots today. Nice to get out and check some game cameras.
