And the pto only works when the clutch is out!
I used this tractor the last two mowings and I said this is ridiculous. Sell his deck and my JD L120 and buy me a Kubota.
People like your dad, who's probably never used a z, are happy with what they have. It's only when you use (or see someone use) something that's a totally different animal, do you realize how cumbersome some of the older eqp is. :-)
