she's a 67 Lawn Flite with a 7hp Brigg's power plant.
Mower's a little shaky but gets the job done.
This was right after the seat upgrade that I did to the old girl.
Its much more comfortable to ride on now.
and a Pic of the Family's Ford Jubliee
bought new in 1954. Heck its even got the Buzz Saw behind it. the Buzz saw was an orginal 3pt mounted operation but got moved to its own cart so that any tractor could hook up and go.
When I first got my tractor, with the orginal bucket on it. You can just see my father's 5410 behind it.
Its a 62 606, I also have 65 606, that came with a 2000 loader, I'm thinking about restoring the 65 this winter and using it as a raking/tedder tractor next year.
Last years sap boiling on the homemade evaporator, the tractor has the IH 2000 loader on it now.
not enough blue in this thread
2000 NH with a 757 hoe... diggin' the walkout :coolsmile:

I'll add some more green. A JD X575.
My better half on our 62 simplicity 725
Our 1940 ford 9n
Here's mine 2003 TC-30, I have a rotary cutter, RFM, PHD, BB, plow, sprayer, rear blade, and tiller for it.
we also have a Cub Cadet 1529 for mowing.
I also posted a picture of the splitter tray I made for my Huskee a couple weeks ago
JD 420 great machine. Last I will ever have, I think!
Kubota B7800 - mid mount mower, bush hog, FEL
Helps to take care of our 64 acres, and is a real joy to operate.
Mows the lawn, cuts the fields, slaughters the green briar and multi flora rose,
cuts trail for dirt bikes, maintains gravel drive, moves snow........
You might want to shorten your top link. That brush hog is at an odd angle.
That was fresh off the truck after delivery - I got her fixed up now!
My 1961 International Harvester B414 Diesel.
3100 original hours :D
That hog looks fine. They are supposed to be about 2 inches higher on the back for several reasons including only cutting the grass once.
I'll have to put up a picture of the Gravely since the rebuild.....well actually, it looks the same, but it has:
New cylinder, new piston, new rings, new F-R clutch, new Hi-Lo clutch, all new gaskets, new fuel line (hard copper), new fuel filter, new seals and bearings in rotary mower, new tires, new tubes, new oil pickup, choke cable, manual PTO, rebuilt entire carb.
One new thing it doesn't have: paint.
I've always been told to run em level. That way your not digging the blade or blades into the ground as you drive forward.
You control that with your position control. Generally, you want the front a little lower - it uses less power. However, there are times you might want it level because you want to cut it twice - front and back. If you tractor has the power and you want to chop an overgrown field with no woody plants - that can be effective.
Not with position control, you'll be raising the front of the hog and adjusting cutting height. The setup procedure for a rotary mower involves setting the front of the blades to desired cut height with the position control and then adjusting the tail wheel to get the back end up a couple of inches relative to the front. The top link is often omitted entirely and some folks even eliminate the position control by using the check chains. All the manuals I've read from the various hog manufacturers say to raise the back end up slightly.
To keep on topic here's another tractor photo.
mich i have a 91 4020 its badass same attactments as you would like to find a used splitter for this machine lotta $$$ splits both ways

I don't have a tractor, but this is my buddy's M9540.
New in March 08
Helping me build a new retaining wall behind the house this summer. I couldn't have done it without him and his tractor.
Sorry for huge pic. I resized the wrong one.
That's one big rig! If you're like me, you couldn't have done it without the Coors Light either!
