    Hi Sergeant,

    I have read and followed your advice for years.

    I am contemplating an X748 from Roeder eqpt.. https://www.lawnpower.com/search-equ.../#detailanchor


    I see you have an X748 what are your thoughts, likes/dislikes?

    Would you go with a 7 iron over the 62D deck?

    Are there overheating issues?

    I have a JD 2305 which I like a lot. In the Summer I spray my orchard every 7-14 days and I wouldn't have to pull the sprayer off the 3 point if I purchased this mower. My yard is quite steep and the 2305 handles it well but when in 4WD is hard on the grass with short turns. The HDAP tires should work pretty well for my purpose.

    Here are some pics of what my yard looks like, Post #29 has 3 more links to the entire project which has taken 4 years to complete.

    Hi Sergeant, big request that maybe only you can help with. I picked up a 30 mechanical tiller for my 240. The only thing I don't have is the lift rod (M72234). It's also no longer available. I thought I saw you mention that your brother has that tractor with this combination? If so, would he be able get some measurements on the rod so that I can fab one up? One thousand thanks for any help! Steve

    Hi, I posted a thread titled X540 Engine Issues Solved. Well I found out today that the issues were still there and it is a fuel delivery problem. So I would like the thread X540 Engine Issues Solved deleted so others are not misled. Thanks for your help.

    Hi, I saw your post from last April regarding using the service manual to find out how to adjust for creep in the 317. I have a 317 that creeps but I don't have a service manual. I was wondering if you might know of some other links where I can find out how to do this, I have haven't had any luck finding any yet. Thanks,

    D.

    Hello-
    Tried posting to the MC519 thread but for some reason it won't let me. Wondering if you could tell me what size hydraulic cylinder did you end up using for your set-up?!

    Thanks, '

    I have a question in reference to the operation of this forum who do I ask , not so much for content or tech questions, can you help ??

    on other forums, if your done with it and you click on mark this forum read, when you come back the next day, those post which have not be added to dont show "bold text" which tells you you have already opened them. I understand if there has been more added, it will show up as bold, but here they show up anyway: its hard to explain.....example....today I marked this forum read.....later I came back and they all showed up in bold ( as not read by me) again...with no more threads added ??
