Actually, I have made arrangements to celebrate!  I took Monday afternoon off work and am making a little road trip.  Taking the trailer to IN to pick up another machine to keep the ol Legacy company!

I was also able to procure a late-model rarity earlier this week...a 60" Sweepster for the Legacy.

I have an auxillary hydraulics kit that will be installed on the AGCO, to use my dozer and the Sweepster with, and will keep the loader subframe on the Legacy, which will also continue to be the blower and 3pt tractor.  These are really fantastic machines...a LOT of tractor for the money.  After today, I think my old man might even be looking for one.  He mows a little over two acres now, with the 42" deck on my '68 2110.

Well, the AGCO is nicer in person than it looks in the pics!  Definitely worth the drive.  Needs a relay upgrade for consistent starting, but is one of, if not THE cleanest used GT I've come across.

Naturally, I gouged the deck trying to squeeze it into the garage.  I sure am tight on space.  I moved a couple to the other garage and the HB-112 now has a new home.  That 60" deck is a big boy...no clue where the heck I'm going to store that.

Next chore, after wrapping up my 7790 project, will be to pull this AGCO apart and install the auxiliary hydraulics so I can use my broom and blade.

Got the deck pulled from the AGCO, ladder frame installed, chain, rear weight carrier and suitcase weights on, and did a mock up of my Sweepster.  Should work great...the quick hitch fits perfectly, but by drive shaft is a few inches too short.

 

Mounted the blower last nite while waiting for the snow to quit.

Added armrests for that ultimate comfort.
