Good morning all!

I found this site while browsing for information on CUT units.

I just sold my 400 with tiller and deck,

just bought a 455 with 450 tiller, snowblower, 54" deck, grass cart and blower,

have a 750 with 67 FEL, 72" rotomatic rototiller and a cultivator,

have a 112 with a 8.5 Honda we affectionately refer to as Frankenmower or Hondenstein,

and a LX255 that until I got the 455 was doing all the mowing chores.

I likely will never use the snowblower, as I have a blade on the 3/4 Ford and much prefer heated leather seats and stereo to freezing the bearings. I have the contract to clear snow at the school and have just been offered the grass mowing contract, $35/hr and 10-12 hours with a 60" deck likely means I will have a much bigger mower soon. Maybe a 3pt behind the 750.

I own a Collection Agency in Canada, been in the game 27 years. I also have a small machine shop, with mig tig plasma, 10' 125 ton break and lathe, stomp shear and pan break. I sold the cnc mill and turret punch to free up room. I may show some projects if guys are doing that here.

Nice site, have been lurking but it's time to jump in the pool.

Actually warmed up to +12 C with blue skies today, very nice day in spite of the blast we all got a few days ago.

Thanks guys, hi to all.

It was nice here today too, managed to relocate my little barn shed before I got called out on a 911 call, nasty stuff. :painkiller:

if it had live PTO and power steering it would be perfect. WHAT were they thinking????
At one point JD offered an add on power/hydraulic steering unit for the 750. Actually you could order tractor with the unit or not, back when. Back in 1988 when I bought our 650 I told the dealer, real men don't need power steering, boy was that a mistake. Sort of forgot about getting older not to mention a 60" bucket full of dirt making steering a real PITA.
