This is a very small community parade in Waterville every year. Last year I decided to start an annual plow day that coincides with the parade. I didn't really advertise this year as last year left me disappointed with no one outside my family showing any interest. So, at this point, it's a family event with two of my three brothers, a cousin and the wives and kids. We had a fun time and covered some ground. The diesel repower did good but the HT is where it's at. Plowed like an SOB! Enjoy the pictures.

Looks like a great parade, celebration, and an excellent showing for the Bolens'.
I looked Waterville up on Google maps, and was surprised to realize that I have passed within 10 miles of there several times on Hwy 97, on motorcycle trips Northbound where we always holed up at the campground in Winthrop overnight. Love that Outlaw pale ale they make there!

So, the HT outplowed the Diesel eh?

I would say yes, but not because of power so much but rather the difference in traction. The HT has wider tires that are softer, have 9 gallons of liquid in each tire plus weights and a different tread pattern that puts more to the ground. I am also a fan of the Sundstrand tranny and I think with the HT's posi type rear end it gets better traction.

Looks like a fun time Justin. The thriving metropolis of Waterville probably hasn't changed much since the last time I was up that way about 15 years ago. Nice town and a lot of nice people.

Steevo: When you run up 97 next time let me know. We're just a few miles from it south of Goldendale. I'll meet you and your friends in town for coffee.

OK I just gotta ask............why were you plowing a field that looks like it has already been plowed and ready to plant? Was it just for fun and to stir up dust rather than actually plowing to turn the dirt over?
