    To quote me from the other thread I messed up :hammerhead: :rolleyes:

    Now I just got to find room in my garage for it. I have a little John Deer LX279, Exmark Wb with a 52 inch deck, 2 21 inch mowers, a Billy Goat Leaf loader, various items belonging to my grandfather who owned the house previously before he passed away and I bought it, and my truck taking up floor space. Salvation Army is going to get a windfall when I make room for this and get rid of some of my grandfathers old junk.

    After getting used to the Little John Deer Lx279 and driving this today - looking down the hood it is like going from a Mazda to a Lincoln. I am a big guy though and ironically enough I have more room on the John Deer then I have on the bigger Cub.

    I have built several of those tractors into pulling tractors and yes you can run a Kohler command motor in that tractor without any problem.Hers a video of one.The only difference is that the one in the video is a 582 with a 3 speed tranny insted of a hydro.

    That's pretty cool. There is a dealer in my city that has a tricked out cub cadet like that is on display.
