    Honestly, the pricing. As you can see I started out with used rider and I was in the market for a new machine. I was looking for a walkbehind since they are a bit cheaper. Then hanging out at the dealership, I started talking to them and they had a sale. The machine lists for $7200 and I paid $6000 for it. I couldn't say no. And thanks. Everyone who runs it loves it and I've actually got a few customers because of it since Deere is a big name where I'm from

    Woow! that is a great deal! Yeah I would have probably made the same move as you. How many hours do you have on it?

    Yeah buddy. And only about 100. Even though it was my main machine, I only had about 20 accounts and most of them had push mower work in the back. So I don't have a lot on it but I'm still in love

    The new toys. Went all the way down to Delaware, about a 3 hour drive, but well worth it. Its a '73 Economy Power King, 14hp Kholer with a 3pt hitch. I think this may be the perfect candidate for a loader project.
