Yes,that is a nice looking cab.


Thanks mate. Its a bit beaten but quite usefull and has lotsa clear view all around. Still gotta add a back-up light...or 2...and maybe some on the sides too :rocker2: then change the lighting inside the cab :dancingbanana: and better insulation where the cab meets the body :rocker2: Then add some christmas lights and a dancing hawaian doll on the dash board and fuzzy dices on the mirrors :D Heeeeellllpp!!!!! the evil tractor crazy side o me is trying to take over!!!! :wallbanging:

Well, life being the way it is I had to let go of my tractor. We have received close to 5 foot of snow in 2 days and I had to hire a snow removal guy to clear it all for me since the Bolens was snowed in and the blower was not even attached. Our 2 trucks the trailer the tractor took too much room in the parking and we had nowhere to put the snow. The room was badly needed so I had to get rid of the tractor. The fact that it was not really ready for the winter yet also played a role in my decision. After 2 days of digging I attached the blower and tried to blow some snow but it jammed in a matter of minutes. A collector happened to call me the same day asking if it ws for sale and offered 1500$ for it. I decided to let it go to a better home and to concentrated on the the 3 snowmobiles that came in for repair and the other 6 that I own. I will have fun riding out on fresh snow for the rest of the winter and in the spring Ill try my luck at finding another tractor that will better fit my needs.

 

Until then I send you all my cheers and wish yall a merry christmas and a happy new year. Lookking foward to comeback to you with a new project  next year

I'm sorry to hear that the tractor didn't work out. Keep your eyes open and maybe you can pick up a freebie. A Happy and Healthy New Year to you and your family. Check in periodically and let us know when the blessed event happens.

Not much help with your new JD, ye might wanna start a thread in that section where guyz in the know can chime in.

 ( :watch_over_fence: I see now you did...) .....anyways

 

Congrats on the new additions, don't forget the pics and plan ahead for the bad weather season to avoid the past troubles.

Good luck Edge! :beerchug:

 

Are ye saving any room for when the next Bolens appears?? :D
