New machines

This year we bought a 1973 970 Case and a 21 ft. Farm King mower. Best thing we ever bought. Next year looking for a newer truck (got to replace the old '84 GMC Sierra. It's seen better days.) Also looking for a new ZTR (currently have a 1991 John Deere F911 with a 60" deck. Also seen better days about 2 years ago. Way past life expectancy, with it having almost 4000 hours.) Also overhauling 1965 630 Case with a 7' Farm King behind it. New engine rebuild, and new paint. Got to look good for the customers.
