Congratulations! Bet it feels great! That Johnny Bucket looks good on there... Only have two questions: 1. So, how many hours did you put on it today? 2. What does Ann think of it, knowing what you "went through" to get it?

Nice looking unit sometimes you have to make a journey to get what you want I always have to tell my wife that.. She's not one to travel but I on the other hand would go halfway across the country to get something I want... LOL

Hey, that looks just like the tractor I almost talked Rob into giving me as payment for leveling his new back yard last Friday night... Just kidding, Maynard. It sure is a sweet machine, saw it running and I'm sure you'll love it!!

Kent The first thing Ann said was "Thats cute" the second thing was "Where is the mower deck"? I Used it for about an hour. Pushed back some old leaves piled up along the tree line back in to the woods. Ran it out of gas where it is sitting in the picture.

Glad she appreciates it! :D Will she be coming with you to Orange again this year, along with the new tractor? BTW, I still think that's the nicest driving FDT I've ever driven, and it is very similar to my HB-216. Mine doesn't drive nor steer NEARLY as smooth! Guess the person doing the "hacking" :D makes all the difference in the world....

It is in her planes she told them at work she wanted that week end off. She asked me what I was going to use this tractor for. I told her it was the summer tractor the 7790 diesel was the winter tractor. Then I told her I just might need a tractor for the grader blade. One for the dozer blade. one for the shredder grinder. One for the carryall box. She said yea sure and a bigger place to keep them.

Kent tested it and I have it. I gave it a good test today and it works great. was pushing back wet and heavy piled up leaves and dead tree limbs in tree line. It was takeing out 1 in saplins by the roots and the HB-116 was only running at an idle.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
