    Default Jumping Ship

    Well, I finally done it. I have decided to leave the blaze orange family and go Green!

    I am trading up my BX24 for a John Deer 2520. I just like having my brakes on the left side!

    I hope along the way I have been able to help out some of the users of this Forum.

    Take Care.

    Individual brake pedals on the left can come in handy.

    Hey you buy wha you like, after all It's your money and you want to spend it now. But If your tractors are hydro why do you need to use the brakes other then parking?

    When plowing snow and scrapping ice in the winter. Gotta use the cutting edge and the front wheels of the tractor are off the ground.

    Really handy if you are back dragging with the loader bucket and have the front wheels off the ground. Just hit the left or right brake to steer.
