    They used to cross the river in the water here with hay and the small tractors would suck water once in a while. Built a bridge in the 1960's to solve the problem. I once ventured down into the water under the bridge and the water was fast enough I couldn't stand in it with 2 legs, as soon as the second foot came down it was skidding you along.

    I hauled a loaded porta john back to the rental companies building! They went out of business while the John was on duty at my place. I let you figure out what it was loaded with! Lol!!!

    I loaded the porta potty with my potty pallet forks and then put the tractor on the trailer with it. It was an entertaining sight going down the road! (0:

    In my basement spreading pea stone before the floor was poured. I had an L185 DT at the time. It had no ROPS and I had to take off the muffler and exhaust pipe to get it through the day-light windows.

    I had my first job (15 years old, back in the mid 60's) mowing highway right of ways, using an International Harvester 140. I remember a couple of scarey places I had to mow were very steep slopes. As I eased along, I remember the rear of the tractor was a bit lower on the slope than the front of the tractor, and I had to keep the front wheels steered slightly to the left (upgraded). I was a very nervous little guy before I finished that slope!

    We drove away from our reception in a Deere 7410 with a cab (borrowed form the farm where she worked). It took me a few minutes to figure out how to shift gears/ranges as I had never seen that setup before... I would have preferred to have had 5 mins with someone who know how to drive it beforehand, but you work with what you have.
