Yep.   I did it.  I traded the Massey For a John Deere.   Gone is the 316GTX.  :boo_hoo:  New to me is another John Deere H3 140.  This one has been restored.  It does have new paint,the seat is in great shape and is the right seat, it does have a fresh rebuild on the 14 hp kohler, and it came with a 46 inch mower deck with new bearings and a 54 inch snowblade with 4-way hydraulics. The hood on it is not cracked and the headlight bezel is in excellent condition too.   I couldn't help myself.  The green is starting to win me over!  I put the integral hitch on it that I got off the 110 and I had my trailer hooked up to it yesterday and was moving rocks with it.

Congrats. Sounds like a nice 140. I have to settle for 3oo series up here . I've yet to see a 140 for sale locally.

At -a-boy! Prayers do come true. Now if I can just pray a little harder, maybe we can get the other "red" collectors to convert to "green"! :smilewink:

NEVER!  I may own green, but I'll never be pulled from being a "Red Tractor Guy"!  Come to think of it, I've never sprayed green paint on any machine of mine.  Guess the only time was to spray Meangreen's JD430.

Had several get into the manure pit, so I know what a green cow actually looks like!   And JBBR... the 140 is a great tractor!

 I'll keep praying for you Daniel, and you too Alan. Who knows, one of these days, you just might change your minds.
