I feel like I ought to be embarrassed.  I think I've ruined my sterling reputation.  If I had one to begin with.

 

Actually, its time to come out of the closet.  I've been a Deere owner for about a year now.

Your friends will be okay with your new toys, they just can't admit that they want them too. If it is such a bad thing, than why are they looking in the John Deere forum!!!!!!

Ben, I know how painful it is to come out of your red closet wearing some green.  But it's not that bad, and you will adjust fine.  I just finished mowing with my JD 430, and man is it the boss for mowing....2nd to my pair of JD F935's that is.

That was very unpolitically correct, Rich.

I know, that's why I wonder why George lets you stay in the mod room.

I have a friend that is a red guy and when I got a 140 I let him drive it and he liked it, it is not a bad thing to like the finer things in life. My wife is a ford person and we went looking at suvs this weekend, she was pretty much set on an expedition until I suggested that she looked at a Chevy Tahoe, now she likes the Chevy better. I told her that chevrolet is the most dependable longest lasting trucks on the road.

Now you really are a goner off the deep end.  Not only are you stuck on Deere, but you also want a Chevy?!?!?

 

Fords and Farmalls forever!!

Hello Ben

Welcome to the Bright side Nothing wrong with a John Deere they have been around a long time and have part's when you need them. I recently converted my Son in law as he was sitting in the seat of a Cub Cadet Model 1541. He now has a 1991 John Deere 316 with a 48" mowing deck. It is the later open frame version that has a Twin cylinder Onan P-218 in it. It took me six Grueling week's to build it for him but in the process we sold his Cub Cadet so I knew he could Never go back to a Cub. He has had  His new to him John Deere 316 mowing with it since early spring time and it has not missed a beat. He likes it better than he did his Cub he say's that the Onan has much more power than the Kohler Twin cylinder magnum engine had and the Deere steer's a lot easier and Turn's a lot shorter than his Cub did. he had the Cub as I located it for him and gave just $50.00 for it not running. It was rust on the fly wheel that kept it from running. Once i got it up and running he used it for about Three years. I sold it for him for $1250.00 and bought the 1991 John Deere for $50.00 as well. The John Deere was a lot more work to get back in shape than his Cub was but it is a very low hour Tractor with just 349.2 Hour's on it. Here is his past Cub Cadet Model 1541 as well as his 1991 John Deere 316 that I built for him. he will always Ride John Deere  Green from here forward as I have a restored 1983 John Deere 318 myself so now the family is all John Deere.... Hammerdown

 

 

 

Here is his past Cub Cadet Model 1541 that I paid just $50.00 for that I Sold for him for $1250.00 to fund the 1991 John Deere 316 build.

Here is how his current 1991 John Deere 316 Looked the day that I dragged it home for $50.00. it was by far the worse Looking one I have ever restored, but I was going to get him on a John Deere Lawn & Garden Tractor no matter how much work it involved
