    $20,000 hats!

    I signed the paperwork yesterday at the JD dealership and all I came home with were two hats and piece of paper! John Deere products are expensive! Seriously speaking, I picked out my machine on the lot and could take delivery of my new 1025R TLB this week, but I can't get free from work. The sales rep. said I definitely need to be there at delivery because he's going to spend some time going over the machine and giving me a tutorial. So, I'll have to wait a little bit (weather hasn't been great anyway). He's also going to detail the machine and make sure it has a full tank of diesel. Sounds good to me! Speaking of diesel, does anyone have any recommendations for a decent fuel can? I was going to go with a metal can, but from what I have read, that's not a good idea.

    Congrats on your new tractor.

    For a fuel can, if you're looking for 5 gal, I recommend No-Spill.

    Here's a couple of threads.

    Just search for "No spill" and you'll get a bunch of discussion.

    Metal is fine for a diesel can as long as it isn't galvanized. Over time, diesel fuel will dissolve the galvanized coating and turn it into a sludge that will get into your fuel system.

    You could buy the No-Spill 5 gallon can in the JD store or get one from Tractor Supply or Wal Mart or where ever. You should make sure it is Yellow (diesel standard definition container color). Believe it or not I had two stations in my area that would not put diesel in one of my red plastic fuel containers back long ago, so I changed up to the yellow ones.

    CONGRATS on the purchase of the new hats!! Pretty cool that the dealer is going to throw in a free tractor!!

    With regards to the fuel can, here's one I saw in a video the other day. The guy in the video was actually using the 2.2 gallon gas can to fill his chain saw. The fuel can was not the subject of the video, but the guy made a point to say how much he liked the can. I'm going to order one of the 5 gallon diesel cans. If I remember correctly, you can also order these cans from WalMart and Lowes.

    Be sure to post pics of the tractor once it arrives. Failing to do so will result in repeated reminders from everyone else here!

    I find it amazing that you have (had) gas stations that pay attention to what is going on at the pumps. When I don't get a receipt when I'm turning it in for expenses, sometimes it's like pulling teeth describing which pump I'm on even using the correct number.
