    Red face New Member. Just found this site.

    Hello to all. I just found and joined this site. I have a 1971 140H3 14hp John Deere Lawn and Garden Tractor, a Scotts (built by Deere) 16/42 Lawn Mower, and have just purchased a new LA175 John Deere Lawn Mower.
    I plan to sell the Scotts and possibly restore the 140.
    I am a guy who thinks that all lawn and garden tractors as well as farm machinery should be painted green. I do have a preference of Yellow paint (Cat Yellow) for anything larger. I guess spending my life working for a Caterpillar Dealer give me that opinion. Don't mean to offend anyone. Hope to learn and share information on this site.

    Hey Paul!

    Well, I've posted pictures of my orange Kubota and didn't get too much hate mail...

    Now I will warn you that if you get up to 50 or so post and have yet to post a picture of any of your tractors, some folks around here might get grumpy. I won't mention names, just watch out for those upper midwest types, they can really badger you.

    OK on the CAT history. Our main fire engine just got rebuilt by our local CAT dealer, they did a great job. Fuel pump leak got diesel in the oil. I'd been pushing for UOA for years, I think now it's going to happen every year.

    Good luck on the restoration efforts. That last winter I took the skin of my 318, replaced the 20 year old fuel line, and gave things a good going over.

    '09 JD4520 Cab (60HP), '97 KubotaB21 TLB (21HP), 400cx loader, MX6 rotary mower, SB1106 6' Sickle Bar, BB3272 6' box blade, GradeMaster 7' Landplane, Frontier AF11E Front Blade, 4' Pallet Forks, 6' landscape rake, ballast box, Woods GTC 40" tiller, PHD 9" auger, 4' x 8' chain harrow, '16 X755 (23HP Diesel) w/front PTO, 60" deck, 72" front blade, '90 JD318 (18HP gas) with 48" MM mower, 54" front blade, 47" snowblower.

    Pete, I think you'll have to be more specific.
