Greetings from a lifetime Tennessean. Born & raised in northwest Tennessee where I didn't appreciate the good duck hunting 'til we left for East Tennessee.

Retired fifteen years now and still trying to get caught up on our three acres of hill country.

Joined the forum about two weeks ago and have really enjoyed using all the information available. As background, started with a Huffy riding mower decades ago. Retired two Craftsman lawn tractors and got good use from a JD 445 and more recently a JD X485 which I just traded for a JD 2320 with 62D deck. Hope to add a FEL soon.

This forum has served to fuel my interest in utility tractors to the extent that it's detrimental to my pocketbook . . . :greendr: Anyone else have this problem?

Just added the Mayor's green toolbox to the 2320. Was applying the fourth coat of JD green paint when the coat hanger I used to suspend the toolbox from the chestnut tree slipped off the limb and the wet (with paint) toolbox hit the ground. Luckily only the bottom & front of the toolbox picked up significant quantities of cut grass & chestnut briars. I was really disgusted that I let that happen . . . :thSick:

Anyway, I thought it time to introduce myself and thank you guys for a great forum and lots of really useful information.

Great to have you here.

Yes, this forum is a serious threat to our wallets! Be careful here, too, as we members are much better at spending your money for tractors and accessories than you are. :ROF

Don't forget, :wwp:
Welcome to the group. When you start posting pic's remember to pay attention to what's in the back ground as you don't want so of these guys seeing where your still is located.

Welcome to MTF :MTF_wel:
Thanks, gentlemen, for the warm welcome. Much appreciated. I still browse this forum daily and am amazed at how much I have learned. And this from a guy who has been operating JD garden tractors for the better part of 20 years! :greendr:
