    John Deere Z920m, any comments?

    Posted this in the John Deere section but didn't get much response. Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks. Just demo'd a JD Z920m w/54" 7 iron deck here at my property. Varied terrain - flat, slopes, trees, different grasses, etc. About as varied as terrain can get on the 4 acres around a...

    Z920M Any comments?

    Just demo'd a Z920m w/54" 7 iron deck here at my property. Varied terrain - flat, slopes, trees, different grasses, etc. About as varied as terrain can get on the 4 acres around a house. I was pretty impressed with the mower and wanted any real world pro's and cons from those who might have...

    Coral Snakes

    We've lived in our place now for over two years and have come across a variety of snakes. They don't bother me generally but my wife has a problem with them which gets them either killed (if poisonous) or relocated. The post is about coral snakes so I'll get to it. I have come across more...

    Moving up - L3240 or L3940

    Hi All, Been a while since I've posted but now once again would like opinions and experiences to help with a decision on which model to go with. At the moment I have a BX2660 with attachments (as per my sig line) which was exactly the right tractor for the need to work my original 4 acres...

    Leaking tire and tire pressure

    So I've got the apparently not uncommon slow leak on a front tire on my BX. Been there quite a few months and I've just topped it up with air every couple of days. It's a leak at the bead / rim contact. Finally got around to my dealer yesterday and the dealer's service department manager is...

    Snake Bit

    Let our Black Lab Jessie out last night to relieve herself. Typically she does her thing and then hangs out on the porch for 1/2 hour or so before asking to come in. Last night she wanted in within 10 minutes. She laid down next to the couch I was sitting on and within minutes I noticed her...

    Fence question

    I'm getting ready to put a fence up around the back of the property. On the back property line there is a 4 strand barb wire fence already in place that I assume is my neighbors. I have never met the owners of the property and in fact the property looks unused except for the occasional gun...

    Mowing Poor cut with MMM

    I've only used the 60"mmm on my BX2660 three times, yesterday being the last. From what I can remember of previous posts, most of you with the same deck seem very happy with the quality of cut. My deck however leaves a mohawk look after each pass and requires a second pass to level the grass...

    Scorpions

    We completed construction and moved into our new house in early February. We started seeing scorpions on average maybe once every 2 weeks in the house. This last week we've killed 5. The house is fairly large and the scorpions aren't localized. They have been found in every room. Does...

    BX2660 - Tiller

    I was going to put my questions into the attachments forum but because I wanted it to be specific to my model I thought I might get more responses from this one. I'd welcome opinions from all and epecially from those who have a bx2660 and their tiller experiences. I would like to buy a tiller...

    Timber Rattlesnake - listed endangered?

    So I found another Timber Rattler yesterday just off the driveway. More exactly my wife (who has a true snake phobia) found it. According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept. website , "Today, every state inhabited by timber rattlesnakes has laws protecting the species, including Texas. In...

    Brakes needed on 2nd axle?

    Hi all, I'm looking for opinions and thoughts on whether I should add brakes to the second axle of a utility trailer I'm thinking of ordering. I understand that it would definitely be better but is it really needed? The trailer will be a tandem axle (5200lb axles) pulled by a late model Ford...

    New BX 2660 - arrived.

    Hello all, Well she's here! After months of research and deliberation between makes, models, needs, and wants I pulled the trigger last week on a new BX 2660. She arrived today and I've spent the last 2 hours getting to know her. I won't go through the detailed thought process that brought...
