Doug do you have either a 30 inch rotary attachment or a sickle bar you'd let go separately? Been looking for either to go on the front of the rider for throwing hate on the ivy

I have a 30 and two 40's but no sickle bars. Let me think about that 30, that is what I tame the jungle with.

Thanks I'll keep looking. They come up every so often. They are either too expensive or too rusted.

Kubota L225 diesel. Bought new in 1974 by my Grandad. I got it when I bought my grandparents house with 7 acres. Still running strong. Bush Hog, box blade, and tiller for garden duties. If I ever buy another tractor it will be a Kubota.

Well thinking I would like to navigate (I tried 3 times to spell menuever and went with navigate) through my trees. So I go and buy a 44 inch used deck. Get new belts and go to slide the deck under and the front square shaft wont go into the female receiver shaft on the 44 deck. AAAAA.

ok all is not lost, I can pull the old pulley and shaft drive off the 54 inch deck and use it on the 44 right. wrong it has a different back spacing.

Well most all is not lost - lets pull the 44 inch deck pulley and put it on the 54 inch gear drive. pound pound pound.

Well f*Uk it wait until harbor freight opens and get a puller. Most is lost but still some is saved.

Got puller and end up bending the 44 pulley I need into what looks like a oreo cookie soaked in milk and given to my 1 year old.

Ok pull the 54 inch deck pulley off the drive because I want the 66 hour drive. Taco Tuesday on the MFer to come off.

All is lost. Took everything to a machine shop and will pay them to have the fun that I had for free.

tire store

Enjoy frequenting the one local to me. Great place for grade 8 hardware, marine grade heat shrink crimp fittings, commercial strength sprays and related knick knacks. We need to get the word out -- their stock is the 9th worst performing in the SP500 this year.

Stopped by my parents on the way up to NH and my old man has a Bolen that he wants to get rid of. It has a crazy snow thrower attachment that would work about perfectly for my driveway. I saw it in action a few years ago and it throws! Might have to go back up and grab it before someone offers a few bucks for it. It started right up after sitting for months. Sorry didn't grab a pic.

Put all the new parts on my tractor. Wow new blades do make a difference. Don't tell the Rover, it will want new parts too......

Wait, you pulled a 54" deck for a 44"?? Don't you know that is just the reason to buy another mower? Unless of course your property is all trees. I would probably thin the trees before swapping decks, haha.
