Yeah Lance I agree it's not a beast when compared to my Case 446 or a Simplicity 4041 Powermax or any of the other larger garden tractors of that era but compared to today's so-called garden tractors it really is a monster. Heck, I've used(abused) my 17GTH-L to pull a 3/4 ton Dodge pickup full of firewood out of the woods when I got caught back there when it started raining and the trail for too slick to drive up the hills.
Congrats and good luck!
