    Re: Pictures of this morning's mowing job...30 acres

    Didnt really mow in a circle. Normally, I do mow down and back. But given the odd shape and tons of things to mow around, I though it best to just go around the perimeter, and keep working in. The...

    Re: 3pt pallet forks

    Yep, that's the only downside to 3ph forks is no tilt. Makes uneven ground difficult.

    Just went to the shop and looked. I have been using a 1-3/4 for sure. 6-point. No way would I do it with a 12-pt. Still worth having a full 3/4 drive set....even if you choose to buy the 1-11/16...
