Autumn Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

As you can see in the pictures, the autumn leaves are falling. Red Rover, my new Massey Ferguson GC1725M compact garden tractor was delivered. In addition to the front loader, mid-powered mower, and backhoe I got the powered front blade, post-hole auger, rototiller, and forklift blades. The fork lift blades would have been helpful yesterday for moving the Deer Fence pallets closer to the house. But still would not have been able to handle the 8 foot wide 2000+ pound pallets.

Before the new tractor arrived a Little Planet time-lapse video of moving deer fence pipes.

Then a Little Planet time-lapse video of the tractor arrival, getting orientated on how to operate the tractor, some practice moving pallets, and removing the Back Hoe attachment.
