That post on being slow made me realize I did not post about the kinda mistakenly bought LT2000. I found it on CL last Monday and emailed owner. The lady wanted $200 and I offered her $150, she was upset saying she had it listed for $400 before lowering it!? By her ad it needed work but we like those machines. She made it sound like it ran, but been through the lie game! Make arrangements to get to her home later Tuesday afternoon due to her working nights. While getting there the nor'easter came back onto land in her area hitting it with heavy sleet! We had much fun driving to her home and sleet covered driveway. We look at machine in a rush as storm is making roads real bad, she was on top on mountian and we already had to hit 4X4 switch. Struggle to load it as ground and her garage floor got real slick. Long story short the machine was in worse shape than pics showed. Rusted through fender pan, deck was shot rusted through by spindles ,spindle shafts stars ruined. Engine very packed with mouse nest and was in need of service. Thank God we wound up having the parts needed including fender pan and deck. New engagement cable was needed and was handy. In little under a week it went from trash to almost a new looking machine! Dad repainted the whole machine frame and all. Today it went back together some. Needs work still but here is another custom paint tractor. Was going for stock paint job but gold was hard to find so made a little improvement!
