    no, the tractor belongs to a friend i work with. it's a JD 4455
    the mower is an old New holland 411
    I got off to look for a rock, and took this about 3pm this afternoon
    As of now, there is no "new farm" i'm just doing custom work for other people, while trying to build the lawncare biz. I would estimate i will cut about 300 acres of hay this year, for various people in the area.

    Cool, my family and I run a horse farm here in Mass. I am haying for a guy up the road for me since he has gotten too old to do it. 35 acres of pure hayfields!
