Mowing the field

Postby Smokeycub » Wed Nov 18, 2015 7:39 am

I thought I'd take advantage of a few Indian Summer like days here in NE Ohio (maybe our last) and mow the field. Thought I'd share.

Mowing about 6 acres.

The old girl worked flawlessly. It took about 8 hours of steady seat time with Cub 22 cutter bar.

This gives a little perspective of the size of the field.
The temperatures were in the mid to high 60's and she hardly even got warmed up. I stopped to grease things up every now and then. It's surprising what kind of stuff that sickle bar will cut. For those of you that remember my pulley alignment fix, again, she worked perfectly. It was some wonderful time spent in the outdoors, I'm pretty sure I was smiling the whole time! :D
Attachments - 193 plow - 144 cultivator - 22 mower - 28A disc harrow - 54 leveling blade - Woods 59C2 - drag harrows - Mott D9 flail - flat belt pulley
The squeaky wheel may get the grease but it's usually the first to be replaced!

If that wouldn't have made you smile, you might have been dead! Cheers for cubs! :D
