    Recent Conversations (Bota vs. Deere)

    I am not posting this to be controversial. Really. Over the holiday I have spoke to several people that are interested in purchasing a CUT. Not some, but all have Kubota in their sights over Deere. The number one reason I am hearing is "Kubota is a lot less money than Deere." And I've heard...

    Building New Lawn Area

    Last spring I used screened loam over gravel to start a new lawn area. The seed only took in the wettest area. Even then, it took forever for the grass to show. The loam seemed to lack nutrients or, it was bad seed. I'd sooner blame the loam. What do you all use for topsoil material.?? I...

    JD D100 series

    Howdy folks. I am considering a purchase of the D140. I have read somewhere that when it comes to Deere rideing lawn mowers there is a quality jump in the line-up. In other words the lower models are not the quality of say the X-series. Is the D140 a quality unit that will last say...15...

    Toolbox Installed

    Couple of notes....Though it looks like it may be in contact with the back of the seat...it isn't. Not even when I sit in it.

    Question On PTO Speeds...

    I'll be running a 3pt. snowblower this winter. It's my first pto attachment. Do I need to always run the blower at 540rpms. My tractor is rated at like 2700rpms to reach 540. If we get a 6" storm can I run the blower at, say....2000rpm's.?? Or, is this not good for the equipment.??
