 What is on your Spring Projects List

It has been only a couple of weeks since removing the snowblower and subframe, and it is time to get ready for spring projects and summer chores.

Each spring I change engine the oil and filter PH3593 with Mobil One, blow out air filter with compressed air or replace when needed, grease loader and mower deck fittings. I then mount the loader for early spring activities like Bulk Mulching and dirt.

Some seasons I leave the loader on, but leaving it on makes the tractor less stable if you forget to put it in 4WD when going down a slope. Better to take it off, but sometimes Spring loader projects stretch into summer Wink yeah right

My tractor requires lifting the front end to slide the MMM under, if I have the loader on I use the bucket to lift the tractor to install, else I use a floor jack.

I have only sharpened the mower blades once in many years of use, and do not notice any problem with that practice.

Time to order a load of mulch.

Yup was not much of a snow year for sure!

I usually power wash and clean up the Tractor before winter, but neglected to do it this year so I will have to do what you listed as well.

I need to replace some split rail fence that has gotten pretty bad not sure if just some or a complete redo yet.

Driveway needs to be reworked with box blade may need a load of quarry process as well.

At same time will need to till small garden plot for planting.

Probably add more to the list as I go

Busy spring, still cleaning up Hurricane Matthew. For a Cat 1 hurricane it did more damage to us than did Hugo at Cat 4. Hope to get that done over the summer.

In process of moving our about 40 acres of farm land from row crop to hay so had to get land ready for sprigging bermuda grass, only did 15 acres this year as total new crop for me. If all goes well this year probably will do rest next year. But that also requires major work to get a few acres ready.

My most urgent job is to pressure wash our house and other buildings due to warm wet winter.
