Put new tubes in my mew to me dump cart wheels. Finally got to use my HF mini tire changer. Worked like a charm. Also installed my wheel weights grtting ready for possible plow seat time tomorrow.
You're going to love that cart. I've had one for about 20 years and I can tell you it's darn-near indestructible!
Funny you mention that. We bought our house in 1993 and I had someone plow the first winter - hated it! I bought a cheap-o MTD walk-behind in 1994 and used it until 2008 when I got the Deere. I considered selling it but glad I did not. I still use it several times each winter. There are a couple of places I can't get the tractor and it's useful for times when the town scrapes the road and leaves softball sized chunks of ice in front of my mailbox (like they just did yesterday). That old MTD will chew right through that stuff!I just noticed this part of your post. This (and a garbage-filled carb) convinced my wife that I needed to buy a walk-behind snowblower to back up the tractor-mount. So, I bought a Honda tracked model.
Looks just like my tractor after snow blowing...but I'll bet that grass is a **** of a lot warmer! :sidelaughI swept the lawn, then washed the broom and put it away. I'm starting to get spring equipment ready now. Fun time of year!

Am I the only one that does this? After years it's become so automatic for me to pull the RIO when backing up while mowing. It's like when my foot goes to the reverse pedal my hand automatically goes to the RIO without me even having to give it a thought. Now here is the funny part, when I'm doing anything else with the tractor such as using the loader or rolling the yard every time I back up I'm pulling the RIO. I guess it's better than having a bad habit.
Habits...ugh! The men's room in my office has one of those big buttons to open it automatically so there is no latch mechanism. I still use the handle but it took me months to stop turning the handle out of habit. Used a men's room on another floor the other day (normal latch mechanism) and just pulled on the handle to leave...just about ripped my arm off!!!I'd try to break the habit because the more you use a switch, the more wear it gets...it's mechanical. You might even pull the plastic handle off! I've got a similar problem with out faucets in the house. Our kitchen faucet is a touch start/stop. I'm forever doing it in the bathroom, laundry room and yes, ever other's houses. Feels pretty stupid!
I've only scanned the replies quickly so hopefully this is not a repeat but I'd search for wheels & tires from a snowmobile trailer - they're usually pretty wide.Nice! I've been wanting to get something similar. My only gripe with road trailers is the pizza cutter wheels; They leave trenches across my lawn with a loaded trailer. I need to figure out how to make dual wheels or find fatter tires when I do find a trailer.
LOL - I was a good boy and walked away spending only the necessary $10. Sure got me thinking, though. An X5XX is next on my wish list (I'm a year past my planned 10-year usage of the LA165) but it will have to wait another year or two. I've admired the X5XX each time I've been to the dealership but that was the first time I've sat on one - seems even bigger and tougher looking from the operator's seat point of view!
Sitting on the tractor ordering parts...isn't that like grocery shopping when your hungry? Pretty much doubles the bill! Oh, I'll have one of those, and one of those...Well I sat in the seat of my new to me 400 and ordered everything on EBay ?
New Tires all the way around, new decals and some JD yellow paint for the wheels.
Does that count as doing something on my JD ?
