Hello Y'all ! Jon here from NW Pa. Moved from the city to the woods about 16 years ago and couldnt be happier. About 4 years ago I bought a 52 8N from a neighbor , it was showing over 5000 hours but the cable was broke so God only knows how many actual hours are on it. The tractor hadnt run in about 3 years when I got it, I cleaned all the electrical connections, charged the battery put in fresh gas and oil and it fired right up and been running great ever since . thet battery lasted 3 more years but had to get a new one last year...we'll see how long this one lasts . lights work, original 6 volt system and really see no need to change to a 12 volt. I used it mainly to plow snow with the 6' backblade and a bit of brushogging other than that it sits in the garage sleeping :biglaugh: Other than that I'm into ham radio and puters and hope to talk to some of you .
