The Sundown 180 is all hooked up, I had the sand/salt shield down all the way but the next time I'll raise it so it will pretty much do the width of the driveway. It beats standing on the ice throwing sand on the driveway.

Just a few pictures of the 180 and the little bit I sanded.

We almost ordered through everything attachments (Jeremy answered all my questions without any delay) for some reason I remembered seeing this at the local Mahindra dealer so I called and he had one left so we purchase this stainless steel spreader.

We have ice,rain and a quick freeze up so time was a factor.

No offense, but I'm so glad I don't have to do that. Lol. Places that have snow are nice to visit, but I love living near the beach :) Stay Warm!

We love our seasons up here in northern ny, Florida is very nice but not for me...................yet. The ice can be a real pain, especially if you try and drive on it but since we don't need to be on the roads, the driveway is the only thing I'll be driving on to sand.

Another thing that I don't like about living in the south would be tornadoes and hurricanes.

Yeah Hurricane Michael was absolutely horrible. I do love all the terrain, topography and openness of the Northern States. We love to travel up that way during the Spring months.

Since we had rain and some snow in the forecast, we made a cover for the spreader which worked great. The last 10 minutes of scraping down the driveway, the rains came down pretty good but the cover kept the sand dry. The last picture is in the garage after taking off the cover.

Drove her home today (about 10 miles) from my buddy's shop, where she had an oil change, coolant flush/refill, fuel filter replacement and engine block heater installed...

Just got an email from Otsego County emergency management, that all the county roads are shut down today, including I-75 both north and southbound. Only got less than a foot of snow, but the N/S roads are drifted over bad from the high winds that are just now starting to wind down. So, that is what my 2555 will be doing today. My buffalo ranch guy neighbor is breaking out his dozer, and I am going to help him open up our road with the snowblower. Road commission is going to concentrate on opening up the major roads today first... they said it might be several days before they get all the back roads cleared. [ Life is Good :) ]

Five months of unseasonable rainy weather has made a mess of the lane to our place. We got a break and most of it drained off. Today we boxbladed the lane and used the bucket to carry sand to the worst of it.

In 1850, my great, great-grandfather bought sovereign land in the form of a patent from the State of Texas. I think they must have dug that road out so that draft animals could make it up the hill pulling wagons.

My sister and I inherited it. She doesn't want any part of it and the property cannot be divided sensibly so I have to sell. The realtor made a drone video.

If you would like to see more of it here is a link to a photo album of 150 pictures taken over a six year period. Six Years on the Sand Flats Ranch

A little work after dark a couple days ago moving some concrete rubble. The 6075 and WR Long OBG-2 grapple had no problem with it.

I stopped plowing out this area when mother nature made all the trails a skating rink, today I decided to open it back up so I can start felling some ash trees in that area.

In pictures 2306 and 07 are some of the ash trees, we have some bigger ash on the side of the hill but the snow and ice will have to be gone before I get those.

Ash will be the wood of choice for awhile for many wood burners. There are so many dead ones, kinda sad really.

I live in northern Illinois. I started felling dead ash trees last fall and I have at least 40 more to cut. They do make great firewood, but I wish they were still alive, standing and healthy. It is sad that bugs can do this.

I did a video on how to grease your tractor. It will be out tomorrow night. Some of those zerk fittings are hard to find!

Hank I cant wait to see your video. I like your video's. They are very informative and well done. I keep asking myself did I miss one of those little fittings. I keep finding another one everytime I look! Have a great night!

RAHarden I know what you mean I'm cutting ash that has either been taken down or needs to be dropped. A friend's parents had their lot cleared of all their dead ash trees 100+ trees. I have removed about a third of them but still a lot to clean up.

I just watched the grease video! Nice job buddy! I think you hit all the main points to let people know about what and how to do. Keep up the good work!

Between the rain and snow making tons of mud, and the freeze/thaw cycles using the mud to swallow my driveway, I've been doing driveway repair as my schedule allows...

Up here, we are still dreaming of thaws, seeing the ground, playing in the mud, and being able to see the actual driveway/roof. Last night, it finally only got down to 9 degrees. Most nights it is below zero. You folks are sooooooooo lucky...!!!!!!! :)

My goodness that sounds so cold! I think it touched 90 here today. At least high 80's for sure. We are refinancing our house in a few weeks and I'm getting a pool!!!

Nothing went on today with the tractor but since it rained all day, after the temps drop to freezing tonight I'll use the new sander on the driveway tomorrow.

March can be a tough month for snow in our area so I won't take the plow off yet. This Friday we might hit 50 so that will be nice.

A couple of nights ago we received rain,sleet and snow and last night we received another 3 to 4 inches of snow so I spent the day roof raking and then moving some snow.
Tomorrow I'll finish the roof raking on the back of the house and then move more snow.

The sun was strong today and the deer loved it.

I spent part of the day installing my rebuilt SINJIN power steering unit on my 2555 HST cabin. No more leaks! The steering works fine and I saved around $1000!
