Hahah nice. I'm going to leave the seat as is. I need buckets far more. I really want a 36" smooth edge tilter on it. I've all ready gotten use to the thumb on the ground its not so bad afterall.

The broken vents and broken plastic and blue seat are all just the tip of the ice berg on a much bigger problem...... Getting to the bottom of it today.

Blue seat? The seat in the Deere Brochure (on the website) for a 50D is two-tone gray & black......

I gotta say that the accordion style door is messed up. Seems like its in the way whether open or closed. The line bifold portion in the middle blocks the view and then when its open it just screams "knock me off"....

Re: Machine looks used...Years back we used to have a serious problem here in my hometown and other Southern cities with car dealers doing odometer rollbacks. Wonder how hard that would be with a machine today since its all electronic and I doubt there is much control over such things. Not saying that's the case with yours but just wondering

Trust me it doesn't look used. The cab was dirty from me but as far as the rest of the machine goes its mint condition as it should be with 14 hours on it. You just don't want to be running it right now because the air freshener they sparyed in the cooluing ducts has worn off and now it has a violent stench of rotting flesh. I know its a dead mouse or rat in the ac ducts, that's why they broke the plkastic trying to remove it.

sorry, I did not mean I was implying that the machine looks used, it did not to me.

I was just wondering about how hard that would be these days to cover something like that up since changing out the electronic stack or even adjusting the hours meter is possible these days.

My dads komatsu reads 1,900 hours and looks it to. It really has 6,000 on it though. It got a new computer a year ago. I would say its pretty easy to do.

Ahhh yes, opened the hatch and spotted the pile of dead rodent/vomit/****. Absolutely disgusting.

How long has this machine been sitting on the dealers lot ? finding dead varmits sounds like it has been sitting for awhile.

2 years. It looks like a pile of raccoon shat or something. That seat is going to be replaced also. Just nasty.
