    8 Foot Caroni Finishing Mower Dissapointment......

    Anything is possible but as I stated above there are 1/2 inch lips welded to the deck that the covers fit over and bolted down. See picture below. Also, these are sealed bearings and sit 3 inches above the deck with the covers over them. One would have to completely sink the mower in water a...

    8 Foot Caroni Finishing Mower Dissapointment......

    They are Pecans or as folks up North call them Pee-cans! :) I am very fortunate to live here. The family bought the raw property when I was a pre-teen. They paid $400 per acre which at the time was high but my recent tax bill listed it at $40k per acre! Ouch! The orchard is out my front door and...

    On my two New Holland and two Kubota cabbed tractors I have always installed cup holders that clamp on the door bars. These are made and sold for motorcycle handle bars. Work great in my case but I use pretty regular sized enclosed coffee mugs and water bottles. I use ...

    Kubota announces price increase

    I hope everyone realizes that a cab doubles as a mobile man cave when one needs a escape from the family. Put a cool one in the cup holder, adjust the air ride seat, turn on the stereo and adjust the AC or heat for greatest comfort. Then sit back, close your eyes and enjoy! :) PS- I have never...

    Anyone Own A L6060?

    I will be filling the rear wheels with water just like every other tractor I have so no problems there. We have lived on our place for 50 years this year so all the huge projects that wear out machinery is long over. Tractors here live the good life!
