Default New-to-me x729, with cab, accessories

Dealer delivered my used x729 today.
I've been thinking about getting a new one for over a year now. When I found this used one, it was too good to pass up.
2008, 160 hours, literally looks new.
Has all the nice options for the cab--heater, wiper, 40 amp alternator.
HDAP tires, 4 rear weights, 54" mower deck.
Got the 47" snow blower that was traded in with it and its required drive shafts.
Since I was saving so much money on the used items, I also got a used (but also looks new) 52" rotary broom with its angling quick hitch, and drive shafts.
OK, enough rambling. Here's what you want --
Just off the trailer


Snow blower going in its new home


Now for the bad news.
The technician couldn't get the mower PTO shaft connected--the collar wouldn't pull back far enough, the light switch had been damaged, and the wires were pulled out of the headlight wire plug.
So he loaded it up and took it back. They'll get those things worked out, and drop it off next week.

I was raised driving red on the family farm, but since Cub Cadet was sold off by IH years ago, I can transition to green to get a high quality machine. So far, I'm impressed. That 4 wheel steer is amazing.

for the replies!
Salesman called today and said they'll replace the mower drive shaft rather than fix the knuckle--I'm sure its labor vs parts cost.
And they'll replace the light switch for its bad detents.
If all goes well, I'll have it back Thursday.
Unfortunately, like most of the midwest, we don't have any lawn growing--I'll have to crank up my lawn sprinkler around the house just to try it out!

Yep, that's why I bought it--for the snow blower.
My neighbor has been mowing my lawn with his JD tractor or JD zero-turn, so I can't justify this rig for mowing lawn--he only charged me $30 to mow!
I've had enough of bundling up to stay warm, and getting a face full of snow when the wind swirls around.
This winter--put on a light coat, go to heated garage, crank up the x729, turn cab heater on, and blow the snow in comfort.
If its a light snow, detach blower, hook up broom.
Hate to say it, but I'm almost hoping we have big snow winter.
