    Steve,
    Give it a try with your daughters. I have a blast with mine. The fact that I pay her also helps. She is disappointed that I have begun cutting and she is still in school for a few more weeks. I have a landscaping job to do so I will have her help me next weekend finish that up.

    Great day today weather is perfect. Since the Gravely is down I had to us the old stand by tried and true push mower on the 7 yards I was able to do today. I am one tired puppy. Daughter has softball practice with the team I coach tonight at 6:30. Should be a fun practice.

    I was able to speak with the hydro gear distributor today and verified the part number for the axle. Hope to get it ordered sometime later tonight.
    See ya.

    Not trying to hijack your thread, just thought id put this up. Just pulled out the w/b and getting ready to service. My son is 2 and already has a fixation with the w/b, my trucks, and the trusty case 540h loader! My daughter 4 loves to mulch and help with dirt work. I hope they stay as interested as your younguns! :clapping:

    I haven't taken any pictures of my work. Just don't see the need.

    I was lucky enough to have a friend who has a 1540 like mine. he has not used it in 3yrs so He let me borrow it until mine is repaired. Picked up 8 new accounts this week. I am just about maxed out.

    Nice, good for you, who doesn't like more accounts?

    Btw good stuff with what your doing with your daughter, at least they won't be those kind of kids who will be playing games 24/7. Of course if you continue, she will be 18 and already be knowing a lot about the industry!
