come from a large farm family in upstate NY. Have moved and recently sold my leyland 384 and case 245 tractors. Still have a grasshopper 718 and Bolens 1669L. Bought a JD 2038R TLB. This has been a great place to get info. Time to formally join. Have owned many tractors previously. Both JD's and Toro's. Even had a bachtold mower - that thing would go thru anything.
