The purpose of this thread is to provide a common thread where you can give a brief description of what you have done on your Wheel Horse today.

I just want to say "thanks again" for this topic!!:thanks:

Put a new dust boot on the shifter.

The old one was (maybe?) a "little" overdue?????

Ordered the bracket for the plow/dozer blade I've had sitting around. Leveling area to prep for crushed stone. Very impressed at traction with turf tires.

Got LED sealed beam replacements in the mail, put them in today. Brought power consumption from 100W for headlights to 36W, and they are a lot brighter.

 

Did some night hauling, very impressed with the light output. It's going to pay off in the winter.

 

I would highly recommend the upgrade for anyone who works in the dark. $35 each, but they should last very long.

Absolutely nothing. Popping off some rounds today at a local carbine match. A little stress relief. :thumbs:

Used the :wh: to haul sand/gravel/stone today.

 

We dug out an area about 9 feet by 8 feet plus the drainage ditch. All about 10 inches to a foot of 15-plus years of gravel compaction. 
 
That was redistributed to a couple places in the yard.
 
Then ALL of that removed gravel was replaced by crushed stone during the deck building process. 
 
A lot of shoveling! 
Amongst all the other work....
 
This is the area at our back door yesterday.

During the process:

Finished the job:
