    JD 2240 2wd, (50 pto hp)

    Default Santa\'s Coming to My house Late!!!

    Well, I made a deal on the JD 2240 and I'm going to get it tonight if the rain, sleet and darkness doesn't prevail. It's a package deal, here's the bounty:

    1. JD 2240 Tractor, 2wd, (50pto hp?)
    2. Brown 7 1/2 ft. disc harrow
    3. JD Box Blade (6' I think)
    4. Rusty ole 5' Brown Rotary Cutter
    5. lift pole
    6. 2 row planters with rusted out fertelizer/seed hoppers
    7. 2 row cultivators
    8. Front Suitcase weights (6 I think)

    I doubt I'll be using it much until I do some preventative maintenance. It's been sitting mostly idle and I want to change all the fluids, filters, etc before I start the hour meter.

    I know it's not the brand new tractor I wanted, but the price is right, and I can afford it now instead of waiting 2 years.

    I'm Happy!!!! (I haven't figured out how to put smiley faces yet)

    Happy new year everyone!

    Boots.

    Congratulations, Boots! Doesn't matter whether it's new or used. All that matters is that you're happy with it and that it'll do the jobs you want to do.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Boots -

    I'm just catching up on messages, so let me offer you a hearty

    CONGRATULATIONS!!![img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Sounds like you're getting plenty o' tractor and implements to boot (no namesake jibe intended). You talk about preventative maintenance -- that's a great idea. After 30 hours in the seat, I finally got around to doing a little greasing and fluid-checking myself. I wound up changing my hydraulic fluid (for reasons I'll discuss in another post) and the experience gave me intimate knowledge of my tractor that I really should have gone for the day I bought it.

    You've got many, many hours of sheer pleasure ahead of you, and with any luck you might just get some "work" done, too. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]
