    Center of gravity with FEL

    Does a FEL on a CUT lower the COG if FEL is lowered to near the ground with bucket? Is it better to mow hillsides with FEL and bucket on tractor than with FEL off? Could a bucket wider than the tires of a CUT help prevent a roll over if the bucket is near the ground?

    Oil & Fuel Not fun changing HST oil in 2305

    Bought a used 2305 late fall last year from dealer with 330 hours. Decided to change the HST oil since it's age and status was unknown. I am guessing it had never been changed.

    Guy on craigslist has JD 609 on sale for $1200. Says in excellent condition. Price seems good but don't know much about these mowers. Any good or bad points? Seems like they have been around for years but many seem beat up. Will use on a JD 4520. Probably much more mower than tractor.
