Wow, I bet John Deere is giving those away, serious piece of equipment! Good thing you're glassed in, those two attachments front and rear really make Yellow Jackets smile!
It is SO nice to mow without being in all the bugs and dust! Those ground hornets better hope I don’t see them first or I shall mow them into itty bitty pieces as they exit their abode! And this winter it sure will be nice to be in a cab.
Nice!!! I am jealous, but couldn't afford that for the little that I have to do.

How do you like it? Are the 5 Series a good tractor?
So far so good- the E series is made in India and the M and R are built in Georgia. That was important to me- even if it cost me a few bucks. The M and above also have a full frame and a little better hydraulics than the E’s. I probably could have got away with a 4 series but there is a pretty big difference between a compact utility and an ag utility tractor.
Thats not what most of us call a tractor WW. Thats some serious equipment bud. Looks sweet!!
Thanks man! It’s a blast to run something that size.
Yeah, just sign on a piece of paper and its yours :)
0% financing, heck it’s easy, lol!

"there is a pretty big difference between a compact utility and an ag utility tractor."
Truth. I have a Kubota L-series (compact utility) that I picked up about 10 years ago with only 50hrs on it. That damn thing has been an amazing workhorse for most of my needs. I've worn through the bucket and rear blade but the diesel, hydraulics and over build is solid. However as you point out there's a big difference as you step up the ladder and there have been many times when it just didn't have the oomph. There is no replacement for displacement, weight and girth when talking tractors!

Also wish I had an enclosed cab for these winters!

Nice tractor WW...nuthin' runs like a Deere!

Absolutely hate them, all of them! I deal with Prius drivers daily.....I'll should probably stop right there! :rolleyes:

I am soooooo sick of the electric car stuff! Again, I will digress though...hahaha
Overall, I agree and I will always be a gas burning, gearhead (less chips please). But, there is also no denying the performance, torque and speed capabilities of an electric motor. Just stop shoving them down my throat in the name of....I'll stop there.

Yeah, I drive an EV (Hyundai Ionic 5). It is no doubt the best car I have ever owned.

I also run the EV charging station policy and programs for our regional utility (so it's kind of my job to "shove"...sorry). I'm not a tree hugger by any means, but I do love them.

One of my body techs has a buddy in a town about 50 miles from here, he's a very successful business owner. This guy has 3 or 4 Tesla's? He bought one and stripped the interior down to just the driver's seat, he drag races it locally in grudge matches. My tech has drove that car several times, he says it's unreal. Just instant power with zero lag, it just instantly goes, and goes hard!

Still, that'll never change my mind about how I feel about green energy, ESPECIALLY since our Government is pushing it so hard!
