Last Friday, we put the Silverado to work once again. We drove to Olmsted Falls to
pick up a 3 point finish mower. The easiest way to pick it up, was to let the tractor
do the work. We also wanted to make sure the mower was functional as it had been
sitting for a number of years, and the owner didn't know anything about tractors or
what he was selling. We hooked the mower up and it worked perfectly. The ride home
blew out the majority of the mouse nests from under the belt cover on the deck!

I just think 32V likes to show how cool his truck is by pulling cool stuff around all the time. Hot Rod Mustangs, diesel tractors... what's next?

A blue mower on an orange tractor? Aren't there laws against that?

The package is going to have to look like this for at least a year. I'm pretty sure
that I won't have time to do any dress-up work on the mower until next year at
the soonest. I do know that you can buy Kubota colors in spray cans. I know from
painting tractors at work that the dark grey on the bottom of the tractor covers
really well and the orange doesn't cover well at all - like 4 coats to make it look ok.
I'm thinking that the dark grey will be the color of choice!! I will enjoy my orange
and blue until then!!
