    Default Any Advice?

    Just bought a new 6' finish mower for my JD 2020. (actually I'll pick it up when the snow is gone) Are there any tips or tricks I should know? Thanks gang.

    Relative to what? Mowing? Connecting to tractor? Maintenance? And that's an awful small mower for that size tractor. What influenced your choice of a six footer?

    Anything I might need to know the owner's guide might not tell me. A 6' is what I could afford.

    Watch the swing when turning hard, and be careful backing up.

    Check any gear boxes for oil. They don't come with oil in them and dealers sometimes forget to fill them.
