    Arrived yesterday afternoon. look great, don't have them on the mower yet. I actually called the seller because I hit back on my browser when I ordered and got several email notifications of the order. I was worried that I was charged multiple times for the order. They were very friendly and assured me everything was ok and the tires should be there monday (and they were!). Highly recommend them....

    I bought one yesterday! Cub Cadet 125 with 36" snow thrower, 42" blade, 42" deck, wheel weight, chains, and a 38" AgriFab sweeper. I got the whole package for $600 and it was only about 15 miles from home.

    I got the deck on this afternoon. I did a little mowing, but ran out of time. It works, but I think the blades need some sharpening.

    Very cool! That sounds like a good deal on a tractor that you can probably keep running for a long time. I'd like to find one for that price. How's it running for you?

    Runs like a top. Starts right up. I have a few small bugs to work out, but I am pretty happy with it. It sure is overkill for my lawn.

    Cool Steve

    Ya got a really good tractor. Those are built strong and do not fall apart like the new ones. We I was a little kid my grandpa had one like that with hydro drive but Grandma make him get rid of it because we were driving it too fast around the yard!

    You might want to save this link. If you ever need help with it these guys can answer it. And know where to get parts and manuals.
