Gardens 2023

It's ground engaging time. Seeds, manure, soil, and everything that goes with them. But that's not all. Cutting and hauling wood, chainsaws and the works!

Spike I could not tell from your pic. Does your loader have a belly mower? :peace: Harry

@Harry I removed the mid frame lift cylinder. With wheel weights and stability issues on side hills a deck on a 646 is not very practical.

I removed mine as well. No plans to use a mower on the loader.

Well a little rain won’t hurt. It just washed the dust off for you! :D That’s a nice looking tractor, I wish mine looked that good!

Looks like you’re going to get to spend some time cutting vegetation off those tines! Looks like it cleaned up you garden nicely.

Thats the main reason I disk the garden before tilling . It requires a little more seat time , but theres a lot less time on my knees clearing veg. matter from the tines . Highly recommend it for anyone that with a larger garden .
