  1. itll be a minute before I have one of those LOL going to have to add onto the shop for all this stuff
  2. nice ingenious way of keeping things in that someone might not think to look at maybe i should paint electrical panel on the side of my kangaroo box Danger HI VOLTAGE 1 Megawatt Disconnect and Transfer Switch
  3. oh yea i found out toro bought out wheel horse and if you notice the weights say wheel horse/toro or something like that on them - my neighbor pointed that out for me, the equivalent is a Toro 520xi from my research, they made these for new holland. I had the unit before these in the FORD version. it was made by shibaru with a diesel engine on it. In my opinion it was built much heavier. This one has power steering, hydraulic lift, dual range hydro, speed sensitive steering, and a water cooled 20hp kawasaki. Its sitting at 818 hours. I liked the GT75 I had better, totally different feel than this one but being built so much better even at 20 yrs old it will likely outlast the kids mowing they need to do. I like my lil deere. It cuts better and I have a bagger for it for clippings for things which is handy.
  4. i dont knwo much about the pulling other than dad has an old cub cadet my nephew used to pull with, its got cut tires, 10 or 12 hp kohler thinking i might get my gson interested in it but i have yet to see any with a hydro used for pulling - not sure why ? they always lose traction before they run out of power in my experience watching them, i think he pulled in the 750 and 850 classes they go REALLY SLOW with a speed limit like 2mph
  5. Her and son in law bought 1.? acres n house n needed a good mower - found this for them - the blue GT20
  6. neighbors had a well like that on their property, their grandsons now in their 40s -50s inherited the place and called dad and I to go over n cover the well - it was just like that one, 4 to 5 footish across, took the old 400 over and pushed several big logs over it that were not movable w/out equipment - the house has since been demolished and the well filled up with debris. i was amazed at the craftsmanship of the stone work and the sheer size and water in it , probably 20 to 30 foot id guess - the porch of the old house was built over teh top of teh well so they could just bring water up thru the porch to bring into the house - my great gma/gpa and aunt/uncles both had their homes built over their wells, both had pumps in the kitchens up thru the countertops. My folks have 4 wells on our home place all tile cased tho. One dug with horses that I got to see done/experience. We lived on well water till the 80s when rural water came thru, we hooked on but gma n gpa never did. dad drops a floating pump down a couple of them to water his garden with now days
  7. ok so call me stupid - i have no idea what that is, some kind of those big sander things I see on forged in fire ?
