I havnt decided yet. It is between one of the 19.9's or my SS15
The 15 has a stronger frame
The 19.9 has more power than ill ever need and is just plain cool.
So I cant decide Once I get it closer to getting it working, Ill decide

That's a tough decision. Neither is a bad choice though.

Ive decided on the SS15. Heres the story on the 19.9's
The red on is a work/pull tractor.It handles misc jobs around the house and it doubles a weekend puller. Im pretty sure it would be frowned upon if I pulled a tractor with an FEL lol.
The green 19.9 needs a new starter and a good engine cleaning. I just put it back together today because I dont have enough time to mess with it.
The black and silver 19.9 needs a partial rewireing and a starter. Mice built a huge nest in the dash, and I think the mouse pee disolved part of the wires

That leaves the 15's (Suburban and SS)
The Suburban is my work tractor/baby. This is my go to tractor for anything. Its about to be outfitted with a mower deck for the season.
The only that left is the SS15. It has the powerfull and dependable briggs. all it needs is the grill bolted back on

I have a crazy yet practical idea. Since the tractor will have hydraulics, why not add a hydraulic 3pt. Also thinking about adding hydraulic connections for custom equipment (i.e. dump, lifts ect). My question is how much bigger pump will I need if any? Will I need a bigger reservior? I realize there is alot of planing involed, its just a thought right now.

No matter what I do, it will be at PA Plow Day next year.

I'm sure there will be more help over there but, if you unhooked the FEL lines when using the 3 point or whatever else you could probably use the same system.

I hate mice. I've heard that they like to chew on wires and strip the insulation (who knows why), but this is the first time I've heard that their urine can dissolve them? Yikes...

I think that is what happened. Oddly enough, I dont think any of the wires are chewed on. I vaccumed a huge mouse nest out (biggest ive ever seen in a tractor). I pulled on the hot wire form the battery to the solenoid. It came up with the factory "boot" on it. Noting in the "boot". Should a copper end on it. Nothings there just looks disolved.

How deep was the nest? My SS18 has a 6" deep nest in the dash and ALL the wiring has been chewed up.

Probalby close to 6". Filled up the whole dash almost up to the battery tray.

Well at least you noticed it before you ran (or could run) the engine. I once cooked a nest in my GT5000, they were running out when I started it up. It was up inside the shroud and I didn't realize what I was dealing with until the aroma started. One mouse didn't make it out. Even after cleaning out the nest, it took about a year for the smell to go away every time I used the tractor. :thSick:

Thats not good. An engine full of stink bugs is not much better :thSick: (green 19.9)
