///////////////////////////////////////////////////I Just run My XT3 every so often for about 10 Minutes. I could Use it In winter as I have a front Blade But Have Only Had two 1/2inch snow Falls and a 2inch snow fall. So even My Diesel tractors are Not getting used Much run time ?
I used our XT2 about three weeks ago to get the last round of leaves up. She is now sitting covered up, under a carport. Was three years old this past September--no real problems yet==other than than wonky steering situation earlier in it's life--which I (we) finally figured out just a dry centric gear turning on the steering gear at a certain speed/lean. A small dab of lithium white grease and fixed that.
No need yet to charge the battery....Don't over think stuff unless the situation is tyhere==I find that sometimes--I bring trouble on myself--by 'worrying' (bang head)
