    I am going to work a bit late so that I can get the machine tomorrow, otherwise I have to wait until next week. I will get pics ASAP, most likely in a few days.

    I won't be sleeping tonight!
    Congrats, you're going to love that diesel smell every time you start it up.

    It's here!

    I will try and get photos ASAP.

    My first impressions are nothing but the best. This machine is definitely worth the price, I am extremely impressed to say the least.

    I came home from work tonight and fired up the machine. It was down to 4 degrees Celsius so it was slightly chilly. Even after glowing it, it took a good 7 seconds of cranking before it fired, and that shed was full of smoke, I love it!!

    Is there a way to plug those in? I have my 740 in an uninsulated steel shed and it was about 10 deg. F and it started rough. It popped after a second but then quit. It did that a couple times but then it started on idle and shook a lot for about 10 seconds before it smoothed out. Just curious if you folks ever put a heater or anything in like on bigger tractors?

    Congrats on the new ride!! After test driving a 740 last summer, I know how sweet they are. Your gonna enjoy mowing the grass from here on out. I couldn't swallow the price a the time, and settled for a 530, but one day a shall own a diesel x7. Looking forward to seeing the pictures!

    Thanks everyone.

    I never want to get out of the seat on this machine, I can already tell you where I am going to be spending most of my summer.
