That looks like a good one :thumbs: New Holland is the "new" Ford. I believe that they bought out the garden tractor division.

I also have a friend with a 2005 New Holland with what appears to be a Wheel Horse Uni-Drive transmission and draw bar! Sorry, I didn't mean to :hijacked: :blush2: It just popped into my head. I have a picture of it somewhere.

Nice looking YT there. I was kind of wondering about the axle myself.

looked the front axel over real good and all i can see is that the bushings are bad. the front axel looks to be the same that is in my mtd yardmachine. not sure if that is why they got a new axel or not but ill put it in sometime soon.
i have noticed a couple things i need to fix before i do anything else. the steering gear is off center so bad it only turns to the left. when you try to turn right its like it wont turn any more. not sure how they done that but they did. both front tires are blowed out with holes in the side, i think the tires off my yardmachine will fit so ill try that in a bit and see.

here is a short video i made of it running

Looks good dog soldier, I like that they have the foot hydro and a column mounted throttle lever. I think you will find it a pretty handy mower.

thanks, so far what i have been able to drive it i like it. i know i need to get use to the foot hydro part since this is my first one. im sure it will take a bit to get use to it but i dont see any problems with that. i did figure out why the pressure release for the hydro wont work, some one took out a bolt so the whole cable moves instead of just the inside :confuse: but knowing the people that had it that dont surprise me.
