stepped up to the "S" class

Well I got my first Sovereign this weekend. This was a free bee. Rob_B traded it for some work in his garage to a buddy. It sat for over a year in pieces. I inquired about it and seeing it was given to him, he couldn't take any money from me! Rob and I are looking to get him a snow blower for him to pay him back. He was just going to use it to clear snow. Anyhow, I put it all together yesterday and mowed with it today! The 12hp works great! I do how ever need to adjust the carb some more, but it got the lawn mowed. This will be my primary mower. I need to adapt the vac to it. It being a variable, and my vac running of the right side of the tractor, I need to make some sort of pulley set up to cross the rear of the tractor. There is just not enough room for the belt to run. Another project on the growing list!:( Here are a few pictures right after I mowed.

I have in the works the "stuff" to fill that ugly hole on the left side!:D

This is going to be my mower, so AGs wouldn't be the best. But I do agree.:D At some point I'll do paint it, but right now, I'm gunna run it as is.

I like my B112 for cutting my lawn, that's the sister machine to the 3012. I've got a 3012 in the garage which needs a BGB repair... Only problem with this class machine is that when I run the vacuum, the 300421 12hp briggs can't go more than 2nd gear. It doesn't help that I am so busy, my large lawn ends up getting too long. You picked up one of my favorite tractors. Good luck and congrats on your new toy.

I always mow in 2nd gear anyway. Elon

It looks like he took them off. The running boards are those pieces of sheetmetal that cover the belt on the mower deck.
