Got to drive this around a bit this weekend, it still needs lots of work.

Had to move it out of the garage to do an oil change on the van at the house up north and when I was done with the van I hopped on the JD and tested its fallen limb pushing abilities a bit, it did OK.

Hey that looks pretty awesome! Triple spool hydraulics, steering brake setup and a 3 point on the rear... man you could get some good work done with that!

Stock 3PH, I added the rear bar landscape rake system

I bought this a few years ago for $500 knowing the kohler was blown and all I have done is put in a predator 670cc, a tach, a volt meter/hour gauge it came with the blade and a mower deck.
The only safety switch it has is the neutral position so it will crank.

I still use the stock electric fuel pump to help prime the predator vacuum pump it is operated by the switch below the dash and is lit when on.

I still have a lot to do to it.
