Good stuff I guess this gives you another diesel motor for another conversion.

Time will tell, but I'll likely keep everything so I can keep one "Mega Mower" going with all these parts I'll have.  Just gotta sell something to pay the bank back the $500 & interest.

Faster than one cow, but a herd can munch a field down in a hurry!

It's good to have a parts machine around!! Especially on a high dollar outfit like this one!

great story, cool deal, glad it all worked out for you, now if it is as simple as bleeding air out of the fuel system..... it will make it even better

Well, I was close when I guessed 332 or 430. I forgot that you had the JD mower Daniel. Congrats on getting this one. With a spares machine you should be good to go for years of mowing. That beast would be a real time saver if mowing a lot of area.

Just now finished, but no time to tinker with the 935.  Our Woods batwing mower spun a clutch pack.  Dad went to get new fiber discs, but they didn't have the center driven plate.  I gotta clean this one up in the lathe or it'll eat the new discs right up if/when she slips.

  And yes, still stoked about this 935!  When I showed Teresa the ad before I called, even she said I better jump on that!  I gots me a great woman!  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:

or just get one horse, they can demolish a field in a heartbeat. :wallbanging:

 

Nice buy, I guess. have to take your word for it since I know nothing about them. They look like nice cutting machines though, similar to the grasshopper we have at church.

You even have a spare Yammar for another project now if that is good. What a great deal, glad you were able to get it before anyone else got to it.
