    My grass is getting high to the fact a neighbor made a comment how high it was, that in all the time I have owned the land he has never seen it this bad.
    ITS IS SPRING. I am empathetic to your desire, but all dealerships and suppliers are overloaded with work at this time of year. Why didn't you order in February?

    I didn't have as much land in FEB. I only used a 997 and since purchased 35 plus extra acres of land. The 997 can do 10 acres with no problem but doing 50 plus or minus acres is a killer for an old fart like me. The sun takes a toll.

    Well another week is going by. The dealer said this week, so crossing fingers and excited. I just want to get to work, so much to do on the land.

    I sent an email to the dealer requesting that the tractor with the implements other than the grapple be brought out if the grapple didn't arrive by this week. So we will see. I was told on the phone Monday that everything should arrive to my land this week. If not then I'll go to their location and sit down with them and ask that everything be brought out with the exception of the grapple and it can be brought out on a different shipment. Providing the third function is installed. Anyhow, wish me luck. It has been a month now. I was told 2 weeks to 3 weeks. It amazes me how time zooms by. Just like life I suppose. I just hate waiting. Well I think I have been fair in waiting when told 2-3 weeks.

This of course assumes that the 3rd function kit is installed now. But asking to be able to use the tractor now is not unreasonable. Hopefully your grapple will be in shortly but if there are delays you could be weeks out.

    So I say, bring me the new tractor.
