My Uncle is in town for his 85th birthday and I broke out the 425 for the 10 and 12 year old nephews to drive around a little while they were over. While it was out I asked my uncle if he wanted to take it for a bit of a spin and he said yes. So, I put him on it so he could drive it around and he was just grinning ear to ear. The nephews were too. It seems everyone has fun driving the JD. I know I do. I have put 25 hrs. on it since Jan. 1 mainly pushing snow and I love it.
