The HORROR ! The shamed unit ! I like team green on team green, .. eye of beholder thing I guess.

I'll concede a lot of people paint different units up JD green and even decal as such , usually don't see JD's in anything but in JD colors and you usually don't see other brands wearing other colors unless it's to resemble a JD... wannabe's ?

Well I saw some pics of 1886's sporting Ford Blue and Cat yellow once , but I figured the poor soul just didn't know what he had.. maybe.. ( kidding for effect, but really where has he been ? Racing season ?)

Not a Green fan, but MAY have improved the look! :smilewink:  Like those dual exhausts!  Wonder how it sounds.  But, must need some work, sounds like deck not working and "Runs" but might need rebuild??  Hmmm!  And being Onan, will be a PIA to work with. Price not too bad, not great, but to me would need to be a tear-down and make right again, so would be "Ka-Ching" sound in my garage! :D

What a waste of time on a good tractor.  I have a strong dislike for stacks on anything but big trucks.  JD green belongs on JD stuff.  Forget overhauling an Onan engine unless you want to throw about $1200 at it.  I'd maybe give him $200 for it but not a nickle more.  Would have to keep it at the neighbors till I got it repainted.

If they wanted a John Deere, they should have bought a John Deere, not a couple rattle cans of green paint.

Its times like these where the tractor would have had a better fate at the scrap yard than what happened to it. Those stacks look hideous LOL , I never really understood the reason for them on a GT but thats just me .
