History
Purchased late 2015 with 467 hrs and proceeded to add stuff. Primary machine for all seasons. Bought quick hitch and 47 blower off a different machine, sold wrong hitch and used money to buy the right one and made money on it. Traded worn deck with gritty spindles for the cab even trade. Chains and suitcase weights from local dealer. Cab lights, pantograph wiper, and beacon from eBay. Deluxe wiper motor from FEMCO. Added front wheel weights then found 75 pound cast weights from a Kubota that fit my rear rims perfect for $10 at a yard sale. Added a few more suitcase weights from same sale 10 bucks each and have extras. Just picked up a new 54 inch deck in excellent condition with zero issues ready to go plus came with full spares for spindles, pulleys, springs, and a extra driveshaft all for $400. Don’t think I will ever sell, I only have about 3500 in it for the complete machine. Priced a new X series with the same features and accessories and had sticker shock!!
