Last season John Deere X320 and the 318. The 140 pulled the lawn cart. 216 did the tilling.

 

However I have traded the X320 for a X540. Just brought it home yesterday. Has 1.3 hours!imagesCARLZFAJ.jpg

Now if the snow would melt.

Nice cub. Is it suppose to be red. 1964 and up yellow. Or am I wrong? Just wondering. Noel

 

 

Optional color in 1959. First time it was available.

Before the oak tree incident I used a Cub sltx1554. Spent a year saving my pennies and using my beat up old Murray 14/40. The tractor was way too limited for the job. Now I am looking forward to working the new Craftsman G5500.

Thanks, the MF14 and MF16 make a good mower, lots of power at the blades.

The Ford moves a little too fast in first gear when cutting long, heavy, wet grass, be nice if it had a lower gear to slow the travel speed and still maintain RPMs at the blades.

Plus tires leave lots of marks in the lawn.

Yes, I find my Ferguson a little to fast in first gear for plowing in a plow match. Wont go slow enough to watch what your doing behind. But I am not a top plow man ether, I just do it for fun and the tractor was not intended the be in a plow match when built. Noel

Er...parked my brand new mower a little too close to many tons of oak tree.  I have cut down many trees, but that was the most expensive one.

On the bright side, I have a big Kohler twin just sitting there now, waiting for a vertical shaft garden tractor with a trashed engine to show up on Craig's list.

So sorry. At least you weren't hurt!
