So none of the 5 small ponds down in the bottom area have had proper overflows. Eventually the dirt overflows erode to the point that the pond gets very low. I fixed one by replacing the dirt and then putting stones on the top along with gravel underneath the stones to help prevent erosion. The below pictures are my attempt at doing this for the second pond.
Picture tells it all.
First time I’ve transported the tractor myself. Used JJ’s almost brand new trailer, worked perfectly. The tractor has a hydraulic leak that I just couldn’t pinpoint, so figured I’d bring it in to get it squared away.
Rented an extension ladder that was barely tall enough to get the job done. Luckily it wasn’t windy and was relatively warm or it would have been a painful process. In general, I don’t like heights, but I had to get this done, I’ve had the star for several months now.
