New Toy. New joys. New start. New dreams. New obstacles. New solutions. No new problems. The more things change the more they stay the same. I don't know what all this means, but enjoy and good luck on chasing your dreams!!

3 Cyl Liquid cooled 22HP Diesel engine Hydrostatic foot controlled transmission Power steering 4 w Drive Rear 540 PTO Center 2000 PTO 18 PTO HP Cat "1" 3 pt hitch Sealed wet disc brakes 2 speed gear box differential lock, engaged by pedal on floor Quick release loader, max lift around 900 lbs Seems like a well built machine. Dealer has sold quite a few of them. Apparrently the diesel engine has been in use for a number of years and has a pretty good service record. I didn't buy the mower deck with the tractor as the center and 3 pt lift are not independant. So, I figured I 'd just start shopping for 3 pt attachments over the summer starting with a 5' finish mower which I already have a lead on. First order of business is to fabricate a set of forks to use with it for lifting pallets and equipment. HAvn't made up my mind as to make them attachable to the bucket or to just make a independant head unit like I did with the smaller tractor I'm now selling.

I been working towards a trade like this for a couple years now. Just seemd the right moment now. It won't be paid for till a year from now I'm sure. Right now I'm scraping the barrel to finish paying the truck off. Don't want to be stuck with two payments. When you work towards a goal and have to scrape and dig all the way there, it just make the finished accomplishment all the more rewarding. |) and...lets give credit where credit is due, if it were not for God putting me in the right place at the right time on many a occasion, I wouldn't have the tools at my disposal that I have now.;)

The new Legacy is supposed to be a little smaller and not quite as tough as this. On the subject of forks here is some interesting solutions: [url]http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2576197039&category=11756[/url] [img]http://i23.ebayimg.com/03/i/00/b3/fa/db_1.JPG[/img] [url]http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2576424883&category=40108[/url] [img]http://i10.ebayimg.com/01/i/00/f6/9a/b8_1.JPG[/img] [url]http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2576420661&category=40108[/url] [img]http://i23.ebayimg.com/02/i/00/f6/cb/96_1.JPG[/img]
