Yesterday I used my 518-H to pull the trailer around and move some trash, and hauled my mower deck to the storage shed, where it will sit for the next three months.

Recently I've used it to move a lot of firewood up to the house, and as soon as I get the blade rebuilt and mounted there's gonna be some serious driveway grading and snow removal.

Today I took my D180 apart for the umpteenth time looking for an electrical bug. My wife wants it gone! No Way! Anyone interested in driving to Jersey to give me a hand??

I'm in Colifornia(Arnold calls it) and just got a 1973 d180 to go with my two d200's(74 and 77).Let me know if I can tell you how my herd is wired ,ect.The 180 doesn't run yet but has 3 point hitch,4'disk,40''roto and mid body grader.The 77 has a loader and runs great but the 74 is getting new linkage and a custom ripper bar with 5 teeth.This tractor had a broken pivot bolt in the linkage and caused the tractor to spin the tires and lunge forwards or backwards when trying to take off slow.Don't stand behind or in front when starting.Be carefull. browntractor

Horse is up and running, wife still skeptical. I would like to hear anything you have to say about your D's. Mine is 'challenged" and always needing a bit of coaxing. My biggest problem now is how to keep the snow blade from rubbing on the tires when I'm pushing a serious snowfall.

Fired up trusty 704, and snow thrower for some serious snow relocation. Belt broke on Snow thrower (old age), and I broke the drive shaft pulley trying to remove it. Having hard time locating WH pulley, so I bought a replacement from local TS. Didn't work..... first resistance with the snow thrower, and the key in the key way rounder out the pulley. Too soft metal.

According to "Phil" spring is a short ways away !!
