    Can a Zero Turn mow high weeds in a bumpy pasture?

    I think you would be better off addressing the tractor ride. Have you tried lowering the tire pressure? It can make a significant difference. Possibly a better suspension seat would help. I would consider slowing down also. Your back will thank you.

    Snow Equipment Owning/Operating Pictures of your snow weapons

    Getting much snow is a uncommon event for us. Couple of days ago we were blessed (it's moisture) with about 5". It was my first chance to play tractor in the snow. After doing the drive, I did nearly 3 miles of roads in our development. It was fun, but will probably last me for a few years...

    What strange things have you moved with your loader..pics

    I used a San Angelo Bar between two doorways in the hall. I had virtually the same experience with a new gun safe. :) For those who don't know what that is

    Got rocks?

    When you are blessed (?) with as many as I have, I see them as gulley fillers.
