That is my thought exactly, at least for this year. It still needs a little cosmetic work. Repaint the front wheels and take care of the little bit of rust on the floor pan. I think for right now I am ready for a break from it. The cars need some maintenance work so I better get to it and there is more room in the garage with the 3240 in one piece. I found that the deck was quite easy to put on, I used my floor jack to lift the back of the tractor.Hopefully he'll just run the mower deck in the driveway, and that's it. No need to get grass and dirt all over it!
I have very little context for loaders, but considering that I paid $225 for a manual dump bucket, which is smaller and less capable, with no angle control, and no cylinders, I'd say it looks like you did great! Can't wait to see the process as you start getting it set up and mounted.Picked up the Johnson loader this morning.
First question I paid $300 for it -did I pay too much based on the pics?
Not sure why the hoses are disconnected from spool valve and support post reversed.
What did you use in the way of paint ?I finally touched up my 3240 fender and fixed the dog eared decal. Trimmed it, lifted it and slid a piece of black decal under it after making a wax paper pattern. I'll eventually paint the entire GT but it gets used heavily and gets scratched. This is good enough for now.
