Fuel is topped off and fresh, blade is on, bucket is readily available, salt spreader is available if snow turns out to be ice.

    I was busily digging out a stump from a redbud tree and things got a little intense. Little 4" diameter tree had 2" and larger roots going every which way. While trying to break the roots off the stump with the hoe I got a little more than I bargained for while trying to rack back the bucket...

    Power Trac 3D Printable Goodies

    Thought I'd start a new thread for 3D printable goodies for use with Power Trac equipment. Some of these items will probably also be useful for other brands, however some are a uniquely PT thing. For others posting in this thread in the future, please note the following with each item: Item...
