LOL, no that’s her old Craftsman, frame intact. She broke her newer one.

But I did note she broke a deck weld.

Mine was feeling lonely, not having been moved in weeks. Took it for a spin or fifty around the yard dragging a landscape rake. Knocked off some high spots, filled in some lows, then spread some grass seed and rolled/tamped it down.

I'd be more concerned with breaking that chain.



Ba-da-bump-hissss....

She managed to get a rear wheel in low spot and high centered. On a good day I might have just pushed her out by hand, but she told me bring the tractor. How could I not

I wonder was would be a reasonable offer? New, but sitting in his warehouse a few years.

Tractor alone, 10K at the most.

It does have FEL, which wife would want, for which he quoted $16K previously. I think he has the mid mount mower but don’t know if that was included. I was checking for a friend, but never followed up after such a high starting point. Given year, I think he would have to sell at loss, maybe cost at best. I think the 2 tractors he has in stock are same ones he had when I bought my XR4140. He is mostly a small equipment type dealer. I get the impression he is not highly motivated for tractors, no real room to display. He has told me that he can’t really complete well with the Kubota dealer just down the road especially financing. I told wife I’d show interest around $12k if that included mower.

Tentatively, he is picking up my XR for service next week. Maybe an opportunity to prod.
