I tried my tractor and am a little disallusioned:fing20: . Back in the early 70's i worked for an apartment complex and we had 3 Cub Cadets. I think if irrc that they were only 14 hp and i know they were hydrstats. Those tractor's were heavy framed and i could wheeley them with no problem at all. This allowed me to jump the front wheels onto a Ford 1/2 tons tailgate that was with the cable removed so the tailgate was at it's lowest position. I would then jump it on up in the truck. Not that i want to do that stuff again! Remember that was 38 yrs ago! I think this will be a good tractor. It's paid for so i am keeping it.

Back to regular programming folks.

Thanks

Man times have changed. Not only could you not reach the tailgate with the bed hight being where it is on the newer F150s, you'd definitely break something! The old beasts were something though. I started on a ~1970 model JD 110.
