Nice tractor and i really like your ditch bank mower,
I keep looking at them but haven't spent the money yet.
Did you get the straight 540 pto or the 540/540E.
In your picture it doesn't look like much room to the fenders for tire chains.
I hated to spend the money on such a specialized piece of equipment that doesn't generate any income, but a couple weed-eaters, and lots of poison ivy and man-hours was the only other option.
I have the straight 540. With my regular 8' dual spindle cutter, the tractor never works hard and I know a E pto would have been useful. But, this was the one the dealer had on the lot, and I can't say I miss having E since I don't know what I'm missing.
Room for chains? Here in KY, I don't even know if I know of anyone that owns chains. I can measure the clearance if that is something that you'd like to know.
