So I have been trying to get this thread started for a long time. I even started it once and had a bunch typed up and left the window open and came back to it a couple days later and typed some more just to lose everything when the page refreshed! isgus: My bad! Being a computer geek I knew better!
So anyway, I am a long way into this restoration so I am going to do my best to get everyone up to speed. I have a TON of pictures and a lot to talk about. I know how everyone loooooves pictures.
First off though I want to take a moment to say that forum is GREAT! I have read over and over on here other people saying that but I have to say it too. All of you are great, very kind, very helpful, and very passionate about your equipment. Thank you! And yes, my wife doesn't understand either. :sidelaugh
So let me start off with a little bit about myself. I am 37 years old, married with two kids. My daughter is 15 and my son is 11. I am self employed and am a jack of all trades and a master of most of them. I don’t mean to sound self righteous, what I mean buy that is that the good Lord has blessed me with many gifts and talents. I am OCD and am a perfectionist, so throughout my life when I have tried something new I have to do it the best I possibly can. So I will seek out professionals in that particular area and pick their brain on how to do it right and research until I can do it and do it right. So when I started my business I decided to offer to people anything and everything I can do and have even done many many new things because of my preparation. I offer carpentry, lawn care, gardening and landscaping, and computer repair and build.
Also when I buy something I try to buy things that will last. I want it to last a life time if possible. I am a maintenance freak and take care of my things so they will last me a life time (back to the OCD I mentioned above).
Okay, on to the tractor. So up until the past couple of years I really didn't know much about tractors or have very much experience with them. But over the past couple of years I have had the pleasure of having a John Deere 2320 with a CX200 FEL at my disposal. It belongs to a friend of mine who has acreage and she lets me borrow it basically when every I want. So I have learned about the great quality of JD and how handy a tractor is.
So on to the goods. A friend of mine asked if he could use my Ferris IS1500z zero turn on his property to see if he likes it because he was tired of putting money into his old John Deere lawn mower. I had never seen it before and knew nothing about it. But this is what I found when I go there.
Okay, I got the tread started! That's one mountain climbed. But I am having trouble figuring out how to post pictures in order as I type. Could someone please help me with this and I will get more pics posted and get everyone caught up on the restoration? Thank you Also where is spell check?
