I thought about how I'm going to move Bror (with his non-functional carb) over to the new place on December 2nd. I believe its going to involve Wally, my 20 foot nylon tow rope, and LTGal sitting on Bror's seat to steer (and, I'm told, make "Chugga chugga CHOO CHOO!" noises as we travel the four blocks down the back alley to the new place... If my current neighbours thought we were nuts....:dunno:).

Where do you all get your leaf pick up hose? I need a new one for my trac vac. I researched it online and there are so many choices in material and thickness I don't know which one to get.
I'm so glad you asked this question. I hope you get an answer. I'm in the process of patching together a "Frankenvac" from various parts and pieces and I'm just overwhelmed by all the different choices when it comes to the hoses. Mine needs to be a 6" hose and I guesstimate that I'll need <10' of it.

I hope this "quote" works since I copied it from the original thread and had to add the quote part by hand. If you do end up getting any answers or suggestions Larry, please let me know. Thanks.

OK, while I'm at it, I'll add what I did with my John Deere(s) today. I used my Buford Bucket to move my 20 year old compost pile (the entire pile) into the garden, added some chopped and shredded straw and some of my neighbors leaves to increase the amount of organic material in the soil since it is primarily clay, and tilled it all under with my 420 and the 48" tiller. I tilled it in 3 directions and it came out looking awesome.
Then I used my BB to relocate a 49 snow thrower, a 54 plow and a power dethatcher into my Shelter Logic tarp shelter (AKA the Ghetto Garage). The BB made everything so easy (especially on my back) that it was downright enjoyable. I'm loving this Buford Bucket!

Figured since im done with cutting the grass and have the deck off ide do some well overdue maintenance. so i took the sides off my 430 last night to locate a oil leak and had to re weld the exhaust since it was cracked at the flange almost all the way around lol . the oil Seems to be coming from the oil pan gasket so hopefully a good scrubbing and tightening up the pan bolts will stop the leak. Also don't care for that big muffler jammed up next to the oil pan so I might do a hood stack :D... Oh and also finnaly installing the gauges in the dash!!!!

Sounds like the BB was just a waste of money! You should get rid of it! ! ! Lol. Amazing how many things you can find to use it for. I'll be doing almost the same things in a few weeks with mine.

Thanks Roger. Those are some pretty good prices and shipping rates. Did you get the .030 or .045?

Is there going to be a special edition DVD entitled "The Big Move: Bror's View" and can we pre-order. Or will this be a straight to YouTube production?

Ok got the gauges in the dash!!...now gotta hook them up tonight or over the weekend. Also went over all the raised lettering and pictures with a silver sharpy, all the white was rubbed off so wanted to make it all visible.
