Wend. the 4th i thought i'd mow the dead brown grass and just as i was just about to finish the PTO belt tightener idler pulley thingy froze up . the thing of it is its only 37 years old . the really awesome thing is John Deere still has them and there only $24.00 and will have it Mon. . just another small testament to John Deere .

John Deere & IH Cub Cadets are just about the best with parts I have ever experienced. I've not had to buy too many new parts, but when I did, both these local dealers had what I needed in stock!

I have never had to deal with a JD dealer, but like Daniel said, Cub Cadet is very good with parts! I am glad you have a replacement on the way!

Can the Deere dealer order us any rain? Its too late for the corn but maybe the beans would have something worth getting the combine out for. :(

I think next week we are going to start getting some of that "hose rain" on our garden also. Going to have to hook the pump up to the well out by the shop. Hope there is still water in it.

The dealer can make a big difference but with JD the dealer would have to work extra hard to screw up the online ordering system. It's good to know that CC has good parts availability. I've always found JD to be great for parts and if you register online with JDParts.com you can get pricing and place orders online. Parts can be delivered to your selected dealer with no shipping charges. I used this service a lot last year when rebuilding a 314. It's handy when you discover a part is worn out and you can just order it up online. The supply of used parts is pretty much non existent for JD GT's up here so new is a nice but sometimes pricey alternative.

Rain? The pivots are working overtime up here north of Omaha. I was in NW Missouri and NE Kansas a few weeks ago and it was dry, dry, dry then.

Gary, glad you got the "PTO belt tightener idler pulley thingy" replaced. Always a pain when one of those goes south on you! Best of luck on the moisture so you can try it out!
