hi guys, got some good news today, i am getting a wheel horse 520h, with mower,blade and deck, po took it apart and lost interest in horses and went to the green side, so i am trading him a jd 210 with deck and integeral hitch. the other good news is the specilalists have finally figured out what my medical issues are. apparently will not lose anymore use of my hands and arms (thank god) but it will take 2-4 years for recovery, lots of pills, physio, blood work to monitor, oh joy, but when you think of the alternative what choice do you have, but i am still skeptial so i am going to build the 520 up with steering assist just in case rather than take my toro 269h apart to do it the 520h is a better built machine and once rebuilt will last far longer than the 269h

That is the GOOD news.  The 520h is just 'OK" news compared to that!

 

Glad to see that the Docs got the handle in it.

Fantastic news that the docs seem to know what is going on, icing on the cake is that 520.

That sounds like some very good news on both counts. Get us some pics of the 'basket case' when you can!

hopefully i will get the 520 home in the next week or so , i have not run it by the po yet, maybe he might drop it off, or i will feel better i will go get it, my specialist says i might feel excellent results with in as little as 48 hrs after treatment ( which started yesterday afternoon ) but i am not to get carried away, i still need phyiso so i dont hurt myself, so some of my bigger projects will just have to wait for now. thanks for the well wishes,

Good news.  Glad they figured out what was going on.  Now the hard part comes in moderating yourself so you don't over do it. :smilewink:
