New Lawn Mower
« on: April 05, 2015, 01:39:53 PM »
New to me, 72 inch finish mower. $4,700.00 new a few years ago, I snatched it up for $800.00. I'm making payments.

Wait...  I thought you had a machne?

I had the tractor, I have a bush hog but I didn't have the finish mower.

BTW... When I first read the title of the topic.. I thought ....

I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

A nice setup. We push snow with a power unit like that. That sweet mower is gonna make the neighbors think the Ewings moved in.

Yeah, its a great tractor with the bush hog and the finish mower I'll be able to reclaim some more of the front yard, get the perimeters manicured and make the rifle range like a fairway "o)

I'm keeping my eyes open for the deal on the 242, or equivalent front end loader, the hydraulics and controls were installed by the original owner at the time of purchase by Massey Ferguson.

I'm more of a sheep kind of guy, you know with the spinning, weaving and felting. Plus the Cracker Sheep are extremely well adapted to the Florida environment, do not need worming and are acquainted with the flora. Still once I get into animals may days of camping and road trips on the harley will pretty much be done and I ain't there yet.

It'll take some time to find one locally, I'll copy all the specs to my phone and start looking at other buckets that may work with this tractor. I have some cash stashed away for it so I can jump on the deal when it presents itself.

Mike if you got the specs let me know. Gary knows everyone with a tractor in basically a 3 county area! If he can't find I would be super surprised. Heck he may even have one in his dads barn.
