    Plow Light Problems.

    My BIL wanted me to wire up his lights on his snow plow to his Dodge truck. He wanted a switch installed so he could choose between the plow headlights and the truck headlights.

    Finally got tired of my quick hitch top hook hanging up on the bolt heads on my implements. Dont know why it took me this long to do it. Replaced them with carriage bolts. Had to file the square, under the head, down a little bit. Works so much smoother now.

    Praying Mantis

    Wife hollered at me yesterday that there was a praying mantis in the kitchen. As I was waddling to the rescue I was thinking how strange it was for a one to be active this time of year.

    Its That Time of The Year

    Yes its that time of year. The leaves are turning color, actually just turning brown and falling off due to the drought, but you get my drift. A chill in the night air. Most people call it the fall season. Around here its marijuana eradication season. The choppers are already doing their grid...

    I will never ever have another tractor with GST. While I admit that it is far better than a regular manual transmission it is a dismall performer compared to a hydro. Trying to work back and forth in tight areas is a big hassle compared to a hydro. My employees like it for bush hogging the...
