Nice Daniel. Make sure you wash off that horse shoe, before you hang it on the wall.
Ya don't want to stink up the shop.

You probably already have a back up mower, but for that price, I'd hang on to it, until
you find the right motivated buyer.

Well Daniel,since Chris is talking about all those Sunstars and how well they work with loaders. You might want to build another loader and have a backup for your Massey. Dairy Cows generate a lot of manure and a guy could be in Deep trouble(manure) if a machine went down?

With paint and a seat, that mower is worth $1,500 around here.

Nice catch Daniel. I would love to add one of those to my herd but they are very scarce here in Ontario. But you could sell it to me at a small profit and keep til I come back from Florida next March!!! LOL. Dave

Red, orange, he thinks we won't notice if he slides down the rainbow a bit. Those two green ones are still a shock, though.

i bought an MTD 960 with the same "use it for parts" intentions. but after adjusting the carb and getting it to run smoothly, i just cant tear it apart. just feels wrong to tear down a good running machine.

Agreed, I thought I would get a green tractor before Daniel and I won't even buy a DA. I'm still ticked off at Deutz for ditching orange after they promised to keep it.

I actually have 3 green ones....F935, 212, 430. Then the JD7700 combine, JD corn planter, and JD disc. There is a REAL good chance that this Sunstar gives it's life to further some important projects though. That was my original reason to buy it, but nothing in stone at this point.

Nothing in stone Phil...nothing in stone! Right now I don't have time to do anything at all with it. Kind of overwhelmed with things to do not even counting making a living. It will be way after the 1st of the year before I can do anything with it.

Well, all I can say is they don't make anything alike they used to. How the mighty have fallen!

That is the way it is here, this is the busiest 4th quarter I have ever experienced. I am overwhelmed with all I need to do and trying to keep everyone happy. With my A.D.D. I am finding very hard to juggle all these balls. I need to pull the steering column out of my 916h and swap out my engine in my 3414s, "Sweet Allis". As for you I haven't known a time that you didn't have a minimum of five hours of work left at the end of a 34 hr day. ;)
