There's one of those up for trade here in southern Maine. Good to know if will work if I dare to give it a try :D . Looks as though you will be dry and that's worth a lot of grief you might get from whomever.

How about the Sears, Massey, PK, etc guys?  LOL

 

John, it looks a whole lot warmer than the orange one you don't have... :thumbs:

Funny thing is I have a orange one for the Case 446 :smilewink:  But with the lack of winter so far I decided to tear the Onan apart on the 446. I'm not worried to much here, as I have back-ups for the back-ups. I figured the Case 224 will handle this storm, if not I still have the JD 120 with a two stage blower, SS14 with a loader or blower and also a 24" walk behind,few blades to.  I guess I could have the Case 446 back together in a few hours if needed, but a phone call and the neighbor would bring over the back hoe, and promptly bring beer too. :bigrofl:

 

P.S. I have some red paint, maybe I could spray some red over the JD on the sides :D

Go for it, I brought this one a few years ago because it was only 75 bucks, the door handle didn't work right and the guy stopped using it. My plan was to resell it, for big JD green, (but as usually it's the selling part I always have problems with). It's been behind the shed since I got it. Well yesterday I said why not, the door handle was on backwards, 5 minutes fixed, had it mounted in less than a hour with just a few pieces of scrap steel, and 8 bolts later is what you see,

Us Jacobsen/Ford guys always get left out :ah_shoot: :D  JK. It looks great, the only down side I see is that your neighbors might get mad when they see you dry and warm inside your nice cab.

I got no neighbors to pi** off :wallbanging: :D

Might have to tonight, I got a little over 500' of road, and another 7500 sq feet where cars park give or take plus around the house walks, etc. My biggest concern is power, I hate the sound of a generator running, but thats ready too.

I used to have this old hunting hat that my granddad gave me. It was black leather and had the earflaps that snapped up when not in use. I had a friend who called it my stupid hat. I told him he could call it whatever he wanted, but my head would be warmer than  his - especially since he was bald.

 

Just remember how much warmer you are than those who laugh.

Be careful might have more tractors.  It works and does the job color doesn't matter

I would do the same thing if I had the chance and then paint one or the other to match. probably paint green since green is usually better .
