Very nice!  So are you going to get any attachments? Around here those are used a lot to plow snow!

Those things rock..  My neighbors have them as well.  They can get up to 50-60 mph on the road..  THOUGH, the neighbor pulled in his driveway a few weeks ago with a Sheriff right behind him!  Got a good talkin-to is all..  Meanwhile I'm mowing the lawn right nest to the road with a big smile!

Believe me guys, the gator garantees big fun. I was looking for some attachments - but we don't have enough snow in the winter to use the G as a snow plow ;O(

But so I can use it for going fishing and visiting tractor show, then with the 112 on a trailor!

 

The 550 has a speedlimit in D. Deere says, the max. speed is 40 km/h (25 mph). Yesterday afternoon Doris drove me w/ her KUGA to my dealer and then she followed me a while, when I was driving home - she made a lil video I'll post next time. She said the speed was more than 50 km/h (32 mph) - but that's not important. Important for me is only the "fun factor"! And it's a real big big big fun to prowl the fields.

 

Edit: and thanks again for all your friendly posts!

Wow, you got it dirty on the first day!
Congrats on your new Gator. They seem to be great pieces and very handy. They also seem pretty good at making smiles. :thumbs:
