I'm in the process thinking of putting this recently purchased tractor back in shape, it was damaged upon delivery. I have mixed feelings on this. Although the damage is not real bad, I guess it's just the feeling I have seeing this very nice tractor damaged this way upon delivery. So far it just sits in the back of one of my sheds not being even looked at by me. Maybe by spring I will get a spark and, try to repair it. Only thought is that it will never be the same again in my mind. Delivery was made by a friend....guess he never operated one like it....900 hours on this machine, was mint. I'm not very happy about this.
