Lo Boy mowing Fort Adams

Postby Buzzard Wing » Fri Jul 03, 2015 11:29 pm

Again or still?? The grass didn't look too tall or thick, but the Lo Boy had to work today. Sharpened the knives earlier in the week. About the only Cub mower you can get away with starting in a cut.

And in between mowing the redoubt and the fort.... a convenient (and delicious) refreshment break! (I did run over the cup :oops:, but it was empty)

And the place a Cub won't fit.

Oh yeah Steve, Jackson Rd! Big doings all the time these days, they had the Volvo Ocean Race in May. Interesting sport, around the world on identical 65' boats. They just finished in Sweden recently.

Later this week the Hermione will visit. It is the French ship that brought Lafayette back to the 'colonies' and ushered the French into our Revolution. As exact a replica as they could make.

The flail is at the lowest setting, pretty sure the manual calls it the Buzz cut setting.

Not yet Matt.... it's still in the truck, but I did grease it. I am going to try it on the 77 and see how it works. Someone said you can run a Lo Boy one on a Cub, but I spent 3 weeks in Missouri a long time ago and am skeptical. I have been busy mowing and working and watching fireworks. And some sandblast cabinet work at Ed D's today. Rust never sleeps.

The French (LaFayette) arrived to save the Revolution today.... L'Hermione is pretty impressive, 212'. Took 15 years to build.

Re: Lo Boy mowing Fort Adams -- More pictures

Had a great visit with the Revolutionary reenactors at the Hermione's second day in town. Drew quite a crowd and the line was far too long for me to consider a tour of the ship. The Newport Artillery Company boys fired off one of the 'Paul Revere' cannons for me.... OK actually just because they like firing off cannons. Makes quite a noise with all the granite walls inside the parade ground. The parade is 6 1/2 acres and like most of the fort is mowed by a contractor.

They are already setting up for the Folk and Jazz festivals.... Probably mow one more time before that all starts.


And I neglected my favorite project, the Advance Redoubt, AKA the 'Lost Castle'. The weeds were over the hood the first time I mowed it. The nice thing about a 'hammer knife' mower is I can't scalp anything.
