Well, it's here!  The snow blade is on back order but that's ok.  Don't need it yet anyway.  Of course, the way it feels around here this week, I may need it very soon!  I have some chores to get done with this tractor so this is all for now.  Gotta go play the getting to know you game.

Great looking little Massey there.  I hope it does many things you need it to do.  Congratulations.

I'm curious as to why you decided you where not going to get a mower deck with it. It looks like the yard would be well suited to be mown with a SCUT. Are there tight spots or more obstacles in parts of the yard not pictured?

I have two good mowers already.  One is fairly new and I like it.  The SCUT is more for the heavy work and moving snow.  This frees it up to do that without having to worry about the deck.  I only mow an acre and a half anyway.

Ooh, that is nice.  Not bad priced either really.  Don't think it will fit though.

Enjoy the new tractor. We'll be interested to hear how it does with loader lork. If you are planning to plow snow I would invest in a good set of chains. Those Industrial tires are pretty useless on ice. 4wd doesn't help much either. I'm speaking from experience on my own driveway. Chains are a worthwhile investment.

Yes. :biting_nails:

That reminds me of a story I read last week about Ranch trucks.
Cattle Rancher in Florida bought a brand new truck to use on the ranch.
Before he left the dealership he borrowed a ball peen hammer from one of the mechanics..
Walked around to the tailgate and put a big ding in it.
Said now i wont have to worry about who puts the first dent in it!

I find it's the tractor that puts dents in other things. Things like the bumper of my car, or the siding on the garage, or the railing on the basement stairs.  Loader buckets stick out there a long ways!

Well, in our defense, we were kidding when we said you should park it in the basement.

yeah it was either Thursday or Friday that on The news a guy demolishing a city hall in northern Iowa dropped an excavator into a basement. They said he was taken to the hospital with minor injuries and cuts from glass breakage.
They lifted the excavator out of the basement with a crane and continued work.

That tractor would make any work fun.  Would love to have, but I have to return to reality.  Reality sucks!congrats.png
