Have had the Grand L3130 since 2005 oil, filters, battery, just changed the fan belt have 996 hours.

Everything else I broke (radiator and brake case) but will need to do bevel gear case seals soon.

Sounds like I got a good deal and a good machine!

Picking up a Woods 65” box blade tomorrow. $350 and a 5 min drive from my house to get it.

Only bad thing is it doesn’t have the ripper teeth. But can add them with time. IMG_2575.JPGIMG_2577.JPGIMG_2578.JPG

I bought my L3130 new in 2004 and have had no problems either...got 11 years from the original battery. You asked about bush hogs sizes...I've been using a 6 ft Woods just fine...plenty of power. Enjoy!

Got some high speed rails on the back of the box blade for box weight/ overall counter weight. Note how thick the web is. The one photo is of the slug from the holes getting cut though it! IMG_0945.JPGIMG_0944.JPG

The tires on the finish mower are difficult to keep inflated and pop off he bead easy. I put tubes in mine but went to Home Depot and got a set of the solid hand truck tires. The blades just need a good sharpening but having 2 sets is a good idea so you can have a set ready to go.

Great idea for the wheels.

I payed $50 to have a tube installed in one after I started to do it myself and knew I would tear up the tube before getting it done.

Solid wheels would be much better!
