Great find, my Olde Deere always wanted a loader like that.
 

   Reminds me of a song, "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Come Off".  And then there's that house in the background on pic #1--- is it really that much off the level? Neat optical illusion, makes me dizzy looking at it.

I think the sagging high lines aren't helping matters! I like that song, by the way!


Depending on where you are in the house, it's a one story with two basements... A two story with one basement or a three story.
That whole street is running downhill pretty quick. Crest of the hill is just out of frame to the left.
Was interesting getting the truck and trailer in there with traffic. They were patient tho.

Yes, I noticed the block under the back wheel of the tractor even on the paved drive. Never hurts to be careful.

Good to see some one here bought it. I saw it too but thought his asking price was too high.

We negotiated a little. And I really need it for a current project.

whew I wasnt sure what DWSMBO was. I was thinking.. Dancing With Some of My Butt Out. :dancingbanana:
I did that once on the Fiesta Party boat in Cancun. Free tequila isnt really free, you pay for it by losing most of the next day


Free tequila has multiple costs: as you said losing the next day and quite often, loss of dignity. I left mine on top of a mountain a few years ago on a camping trip with my buddies. LOL. I won't put the link on here but Google "tequila medicine".

Anybody with a garden tractor sooner or later wants a FEL on one, that includes me.

Glad you got one and I know you'll use it.

I see yours has the self leveling bucket/forks on it. :thumbs:

I got the pedal done (some dressing up and little things to do yet)
Walk around and test drive vids.



Next will be the front axel swap. Have to make an adapter for the steering linkage to the new axel to get the geometry right.
