    hmm so now I gotta put one on mine.
    Yes the shock was well worth the effort. Much safer and comfortable to use. No more snapping back of the blade now. You should do it.

    Larry, I haven't had an issue at all with the R-4's. I has them on the 4240 and no extra weight except the blower and they worked well on that as well. I got 68 hours on the tractor now. It's been fun

    I'm using two Drift POV cameras in this video. One is the newest Drift HD 170 and the other is the Drift HD170 Stealth. The Stealth is the older one and about a year old. The Drift HD170 is 25% smaller than the stealth. They are held on the glass by suction cups and I have both paired with one remote to turn them on and off. I also have an LED indicator light on them to tell me when they are recording. This video was kind of a learning thing. Im hoping to get better at videos as time goes by

    Nice shop, too. Shows that no matter how big your shop is, it isn't big enough. ;-)
    Glad you enjoyed it. I tried to capture the sounds of the tractor instead of adding music. Just trying to make everyone feel as they were operating the machine. Ya the shop is small with all the tooling but I some how get things one in there.

    If anyone wants to put beacons on their rig...take a look at how 4shorts did his. By far one of the more professional(and effective) looking jobs!
    Ya it was pretty windy for sure. Your right, the flag was straight out. I purposely put the radio on so viewers could hear the reports. You got good ears my friend
    Thanks for your comments on my lighting install. It's funny. In the daytime it's hard to notice the lights but turn them on after dark and there's no mistaking that they are there . If someone hits me they can't say they didnt see me

    Pictures I took on 3/5/12
    The lens are 170 degrees and can be narrowed just by adjusting the zoom. You take nice photos sir

    Is it frown upon to drop the plow and help clear the main road?

    Again thanks for the ride.

    It's really not something that's done around here. Liabilities being what they are these days if I hooked some pavement with my blade I could be liable for repair costs plus not knowing the road conditions if I hooked something with the blade it could cost me plenty in tractor repairs.
    That being said I have dropped the blade on some private side roads on the way to a customers driveway.
    Glad you liked the ride
