She Thinks My Tractor's -- Well not Sexy

Guys love new toys.

My new toy, er tool, arrived last evening. After two weeks without a tractor/mower, my replacement arrived last evening. It was unceremoniously off-loaded from the delivery truck and placed at my feet by two guys who almost dropped it. Well it is almost 600 pounds and the ramp was a bit narrow. Not a real good beginning.

To say that I was excited about receiving it is an understatement.

24 horses of Briggs and Stratton engine powering a 46 inch mower deck on a Craftsman tractor ready to make short work of my lawn. And it did. Raw power, tight turning radius.

I had bought the bagger last weekend. It was ready. Amazingly, it installed in less than about 20 minutes and was ready for work.

The lawn looked great when I was done.

I do miss my old tractor--but the new one is really powerful. And it made short work of the lawn especially with its tight turning radius.

Out with the old and in with the new. Does anyone need a used tractor with a non-working engine?
