Agway from the dump 8/7/10
Just got back from a dump trip and found this Agway at the dump (dumpled?).
I somehow managed to push it into the truck myself along with some scotts
push mower with a knocking tecumseh. The issue with this tractor is the
deck always engages when you hit a bump thanks to a worn height adjuster.
Road to Wagon Fest, epic tire failure
Just a few clips of the drive to Wagon Fest 2010 in Waterloo, NY. I didn't
actually get any shots at teh fest this year, besides the little clip of
the cruise in this video. The whole ride up and part way back there was a
ton of vibrations in my wagon. Eventually found the problem to be a tire
with a broken belt that blew out.

I curbled a 1977 Wheelhorse B-81
Just picked this up off the side of the road (curbled; to pickup an item
from the side of the road) this vintage 1977 wheelhorse B-81. Garage kept,
no rust. I'll have to see if this one runs.
And I took care of defining curbled:
Mount-n-Lock at Home
Lawn tractors are great tools for doing yard work, but wouldn't it be great
to be able to clamp all of your yard tools, ag sprayer and even a cargo
tray to your John Deere? What if you need to connect a winch or tow a
utility trailer? How about carrying your trash dumpsters up to the curb?
You can do it all with the Mount-n-Lock Universal Attachment System.with
ease. Move accessories and implements from vehicle to vehicle with no

1981 Craftsman LTV10 Tow Tractor Project Update
This is an update on the 81 LTV10, soon to be an LTV12 with a 12 hp briggs
and stratton instead of its POS unfixable 10hp briggs. This tractor will be
a tow and recovery rig for towing tractors around the yard, and when I go
pick up tractors that are buried up in weeds and small trees. This tractor
was actually found that way, it had a tree growing through the deck, all
the tires were flat, had weeds all around it and in it, and had to be towed
out with my buddys ford truck(we didn't take my truck that day). This
tractor will also be getting an upgrade to a 5 speed transaxle over the
orginal 2 speed unit.
The overall look of the tractor will be a rat rod, with a nicely painted
red engine with chrome parts. Its gonna be SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mud mower put to work hauling trees
This actually started off as going out to make another off road video with
the kid. And when I came around the corner of the trail there was a Tree
down. So it turned into a work video.

Winching a Lawn Tractor Into the Cart
In this video Dave and I are loading a junky tractor into the flatbed cart.
We added a floor and a portable 2,000lb electric winch onto the big cart we
bought from Tractor Supply Co for the purpose of hauling lawn tractors.
This Sears Companion had a locked transaxle and stripped steering gear, so
it would have been hard to move otherwise. This setup has been a real time
(and back) saver, and I don't know how we did without it. I sped up the
video in one part becaue the winch takes about 2.5 minutes to pull a
tractor up the ramps and into the bed. We don't mind it because the winch
is remote controlled and moves so slow just one person can safely load up a
tractor. You can also see the Wizard in action as it makes short work of
this task. Oh yeah, when we got down to the garage we discovered the
Companion had a stowaway that took a ride with us. I wonder if he came with
the tractor when I bought it?
