Nice looking Craftsman!

Has your gas level "window" fogged up yet? Mine is pretty much white instead of see thru.

Is that an electric Sleeve Hitch or is that tied in with the deck lift?

On Mine, it's a seperate lift (manual) for the sleeve. It's kinda nice when you're running both the dozer blade and the box blade at the same time. That & you don't have to take the deck off to use the rear blade.

Minor thing tho, very neat that it came with the Sleeve Hitch. Now you not only need to find more grass, but some dirt to play in as well :D
