I want to know if the front warning lights could be added to the Mouse and how much to do so?
Yeah, I was wondering the same thing.... I know it is a Euro kit so I don't know if there might be a set on ebay? They sure would come in handy in the winter when we have to take the tractors on the road.

As mentioned before the deck is interesting. Very safe so we won't hurt ourselves on the belt...

Also, the seat is interesting too as it is short in the back, thick in the butt, and looks to have a serious amount of suspension built into it. It would be interesting to try on a bumpy yard or gas line.:fing32:

Strange to see the mix of rear HDAPs and front Turfs.

There is something thin sticking up to the front and above the dash. Might that be a digital tach?

Also, check out the rear bumper and things...

At some point the links will break so I'm showing the pics as attachments and linked pics. I like the size and resolution of the linked pics, think they make for better viewing, and think the site should work toward allowing larger attachments (looks like they are evolving attachments so this could be close).

Nice tractor (and rear mirror).:thThumbsU

I wonder if the ROPS is connected to the axle/frame so it would really withstand a rollover of if it is just setting on the body.

I checked around and couldn't find a company that built certified ROPS for the X7xx series but there are some for older JD GT's.

Interesting how it has a ROPS but no seat-belt to keep the operator in the seat in case of roll-over.

Cool headlights.

Yeah, that's the euro-homologation lights kit (required in europe to transport on-road). Engine-Tech mentioned a while back that it's possible to order that kit in the U.S. (I think he even posted the JD part number). I seem to recall that it's retty pricey, though. But definitely very cool -- go get one, Mouse!

The deck is neat. It's a rear-discharge, apparently. I've seen photos of a hydraulically operated, clamshell-type, rear catch system that couples with these decks (sold only in europe). I would guess that's what the funny rear bumper/bracket is for.

That sure looks a lot like this deck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_i9-P6ruAg
Interesting!

So, not even a rear discharge. Just a special sort of mulching mower that can cut through some serious stuff -- almost like a rotary mower.

I couldn't figure out what was hooked up to the hydraulic couplers (beginning at about 1:25 in the video). At first I thought maybe the mower had a hydraulic motor, but the schematic looks like it's shaft driven. ???

I wonder if the hoses run to the back and are the rear hydraulic kit?

I do believe by law in europe you cannot have a side discharge decks, due to flying debris that can injure a bystander.
Side discharge decks are allowed in Sweden, dont now what the law say for the southern Europes countrys.
