As per title, I put this thing on yesterday. I purchased it from a guy out in NY this winter, and finally got time to get it done. It was by NO means an easy task for a first timer, but it's done. Since purchasing my LGT165, I have decided to retire the plowing duties from my 800. I will more than likely just keep the Haban on the 800 permanently, as it alot of work to remove from tractor. Here's a photo of her at the beginning of winter not even working up a sweat, and a couple photo's of it with mower finished.

 

Now I have to clean up my Jacobsen AM radio for the 800, and she'll be done.

 

Just a side note, if you are wondering what the door bell switch is for, it runs my horns under the hood. I fastened it down with 3M double sided foam tape as to not drill any holes, and the switch has a flat surface for the tape to stick to.

 

Also, for those folks that need a Sickle Mo manual, I uploaded the manual for it in the attachments section of the forum. :thumbs:

OHHH YEA! Just driving around the yard not even running it is a blast. I live on the edge of town on a busy intersection, and it's amazing (and kinda funny) how many people slow way down :thumbs: Believe me, I had a HECK of a time finding it, but it was worth the effort. (Did ya ever hear the old adage about finding Diamonds from Goats) LOL

That looks good. Your right about leaving it on, its to much trouble to take on and off. I put a 402D on my 125 and never painted it and I just don't want to take it off. To much work. Have fun with it.

Oh yea there is so much fitment, and aligning to setting one of these up it's just better to "set it and forget it".

You bet I will, and it's just starting!!!

I went to the Baraboo show yesterday, and made a BIG score. I found a vendor selling a new MSD pro billet distributor with wires, and a Summit ignition box for sale, and mind you, it's all brand new, and talked him down to 45 bucks!! So, long story short, Im walking to the parking lot, and a guy stops me, and asks if the distributor, and related gear are for sale. I smiled, and said why everything is for sale. I told him 250, and he shot back with 200, and naturally I came back with the final number of 225. SOLD!! I started back for the tire tent with cash in hand, and IF there are any left, I'm buyin!!!! (tires were flyin outta there like no tomorrow) I didn't have enough cash when I got there to buy all new, so I wasn't gonna buy any, but ended up with some anyway. I want the tires more than the distributor anyway!!!! So this is how it worked out. I came there with a 100, and left with new tires, tire hat, and 48 bucks in my pocket. Oh yea, I went with tru powers cause they were only 15 bucks more a tire than the Deestones, and they are MADE IN AMERICA!!!!

 

tru powers-LAST SET 180 bucks                                  

Deestone fronts with tubes 52 bucks                        

Hat FREE                                                                   

                                                                                        

 

Now that she's retired, she gets new slippers!!! Hopefully get em on soon?

I love it when a deal comes together like that. Boy those tires will really look good on that tractor, can't wait to see them.

I will have to agree with ya 100% on everything you said. :thumbs: I was actually shocked that any of that even happened. Would I have normally spent that on rubber? NOPE, but in this instance, you better believe it!

 

I think I might pull the front hub caps off, and put them on my 1200 tho. I just don't think they will look quite right with that style tire on the front. Maybe, once they are on, I'll take a poll on the hubcaps for a yay, or nay?

As promised, I  would share some pics of the new slippers. Unfortunately I did not realize I did infact buy the wrong size for the fronts, so I had to take what I could get locally. The fronts that are on there now are Carlisle as well. Obviously they dont have the steer traction of the three ribbed tires, but I think they will do. The tire in the middle is what was on there, the one on the right is the tri rib, and the one on left is what is on it now.

 

I also repainted the radio, and got the antenna mounted, she looks good! Enjoy the pics.
