    Hi Russ! Boy, I sure wish I could do that with mine! That's the one feature of the MMM I really miss. The gearbox of the LP 2572 FDR is just too heavy and pulls it over. Figured if it wants to lay flat, it can. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    <font color=blue>I just tipped up my 3pt RD RFM on its tail for winter storage. Although I did pull the pins and removed the rear caster wheels first.

    I never thought about doing that...

    Is there any worry of losing gear box oil out a vent hole? I suppose it depends on the specific mower...I have a Woods RD6000 [think that is the model number, 60 inch read discharge, RFM]. Something to think about doing when I start to store my equipment under a roof next year.

    Hi Pete:

    I have the First Choice GM30-72, which is virtually a clone of your LP 2572 FDR. And yes I did have to tether it ito the wall, to keep it from falling over.

    Hi Bill:

    So far I have had no sign of leakage from the gear box. but remember the gear box isn't filled all the way to begin with, so depending on where your vent holes is located, it probably shouldn't leak.

    One more advantage to this is that the weight of the mower will not be resting on the pneaumatic tires throughout the winter.

    Well, thanks for all the advice.
    I don't have a shortage of storage space (thinking ahead I built a 900 square foot home for my kubota and its attachments....) but it sounds like a PTO rotary is the way to go. I cut my lawn with my JD 345, and I don't want to change that.

    Thanks again!
