leaf mulcher cub

Postby artc » Tue Nov 02, 2004 9:21 am

I cleared land for my house when i built it a few years ago. as you can see by the trees, i have substantial cleanup to do in the fall, especially out back.

Image

using a combined effort of old and new technology, the clean-up was effortless. David has a Toro zero turn with a powered rear bagger. it fills up too fast and the mower deck won't accept 6" of leaves, it just plows them along. same problem i had with my 129 cub cadet.

but that C3, in 1st gear, engine to full, did an awesome job of grinding and mowing at the same time. then the zero turn vaccuumed and dumped everything out back.

an hour on the cub, and perhaps 2 hours with the leaf blower and the Z turn. Done. have to do a final cleanup in a week or two, but the majority is done.

and seat time for the cub :) as Rudi would say, priceless :!:

Is that the "Preditor" standing behind the basketball goal? Must be in the employ of Bigdog. What better way to spot cubs than to just blend in to the surroundings. Thank goodness we have plenty of mud around today! :lol: :lol:

yup, you got that right :!: and if that isn't enough fun, while i was in search of a larger tractor for drawbar duty, i located a W4 at a decent price in partial dissassembly. since i already had the W6 deal, David (son, partial to cub cadets, 14 at last count) spoke up for it :!: he just couldn't take it any longer :wink:
means we have another winter project in the works! ain't that awful :?:

The dang framistat must be gettin' outta calibration again. Must be the interference from the dynamic flux capacitor tuning circuit. Gonna upgrade to "FCUB 2.0" (Farmall Cub Uncovering Beacon) It has that new Lo-boy option.

Great spread. The arched windows and the angles at the top corners of the garage doors add an extra touch.

Art. Nice place!! I did the same thing 5 years ago (cleared land and new house). Still taking trees out every once in a while . Keep expanding the lawn! I guess when I get too old, the lawn will start shrinking again :lol: Your right with the leaves. They must come off before the snow. Doesn't do the grass good leaving them on.............
