I ordered these on-line yesterday early morning, UPS dropped them at my door before noon today. Talk about FAST delivery...

Best price, FAST delivery - I highly recommend https://tiresshipped2you.com/

Since the old girl still has her original front shoes on (56 years old), if these new tires last that long, it will be good (not holding my breath).

I taught myself something new today. Want to cut a straight line through the pasture? Just aim the top of the exhaust pipe to someone fixed, like a tree that's far away. Sure the tractor bobs and weaves but keep it aimed and you're sure to cut a straight line.

I got to the top of what my wife says "Billy goat hill" and had to call my wife to bring farm truck for.more gas.
Awesome! Couldn't help but chuckle at your story. My grandpa taught me the "set your sight on a distant point" both as practical exercise on the tractor, but also as a maxim for life. You brought back some tender memories for me of those conversations.

As to the gas...his approach was you check the tank before you head out or you walk to fetch the 5 gallon can. I only saw it happen to him once....neither he nor my dad would let me fetch the gas for him. He walked over a 3/4 mile one way. Lolol. Was about as far from the tractor shed he could be an still be on his property.

That's wise advise your grandpa gave you. I enjoy being around older folks, when they start talking about been there/done that, learned lesson xxxxxx. If you listen you learn a lot!

NO --- to see "ATTACHMENTS" for already there tractors! :lol:

I mean you have one for you and one for her already. Now it's stuff to use WITH them -- got it??????

You know, if the crapheads in WH would get it done, you could have a contribution by then -- another gov stim -- and they would them be purchased for FREE. That would be a real deal.
