    If your Elon Musk (owner of Tesla) and have the extra cash & know how. You put a mannequin in one of your Tesla Roadsters and launch it into space. This is exactly what he did yesterday 2/6/18 as part of proving out his Falcon Heavy rocket. Here's some cool pics, I like how it says "Don't Panic" on the dash. For more info just Google "tesla in space".

    Holy Cow...your asking to make a choice between the world's best Round Hood and the world's 1st short frame square hood?? Here is how I handled this situation. I have a 702 AND 2 short frame square hoods...an 857 and an 876. The only answer to this question...you have to go get both of them. Then you will have your favorite 7 hp Kohler and your favorite 8 hp Kohler at the same time.

    That's where my 704 went!!! I was using it one day to pull a stump out of the back yard. Suddenly the cable broke & I was thrown off the back. The tractor hit a big dirt pile that was in front of it, launching it into the air and I hadn't see it since. Thanks for finding it Terry!! Seriously, that's a cool picture.

    My son-in-law works at a local scrap yard and picked this up in Oct. He decided he wasn't going to do anything with is so he gave it too me this past Sunday. Another project for my "spare" time. Haven't messed with it yet but he threw a set of jumper cables and tried to start it awhile back. Nothing. Next warm day I'll check it out further. Sunday was a good day; I was treated to breakfast, given a free tractor, and the Eagles won the Super Bowl.

    Got some new skins on the Fat Chic, (not much to look but she sure is fun) and plowed the entire driveway with no chains! Did not think that would happen . I guess with 300 lbs of weights I may not need them. But I probably will in the heavy wet stuff. Sure is easier on the back and arse without the bounce of the chains. They are Gladiators, from eBay $40 each.

    I like the one/two owner all original ones . The thrill of the hunt and finding that next elusive feeds my addiction !

    Gotta go along with the RS as the favorite BIG , don't know if I will ever have one, but very high on the wish list. RJ-35 would be my pick for a small , lets face it, they are just too cute to not make the list. I need to get mine down from the haymow and restore it one of these days. As many of you have already guessed my favorite medium size is a 953. Don't ask which 953 is my favorite, love them all.

    I was just messing around with this photo but I liked it so much I made it my desktop image. Showing off my dual Samsung 32 inch curved monitors. These make my work much easier and allow me to have multiple programs open at the same time. Just a few short years ago monitors this size were not affordable for me. I paid much more for my first 24 inch monitor than for 2 of these this Christmas.

    I admire the man and his vision - as well as the insane accomplishments he's made in such a short time. I'm sure he will contribute to humanity in a very positive way in the future as long as he stays within the boundaries of what he's done so far - progress over profiteering. Gotta love the guy's sense of humor - just think if an alien race found it making laps around Mars..lol. I would seriously love to prod the guy into loving our hobby here and Wheel Horses - think what he could do with them, lol. The exclamation point of landing the two boosters side-by-side was pretty staggering - I sat there with my jaw on the floor - didn't know that was planned as I lost track of the project in recent weeks - kudos to Elon for sure. I almost wish this guy was into medical science and gene research - hard telling what he could do with his teams he's built. They have had some spectacular failures, but they refuse to give up and you gotta love that. I saw the thread title and thought - "wow, this is opening a can of super-sized worms" on this forum, lol . Sarge

    No ****. That was to me way more impressive than the launch. I mean the Saturn V was much more powerful but the technology to bring boosters back down..just beyond my feeble mind. Many of us i am sure remember the days in school when they might wheel in a black and white TV to watch a space launch Vanguard or Atlas...and how many times it never even got off the ground.

    They are both very good tractors and both have good strong kohler engines. It’s a hard choice to make. I would go with 702 though just because I like round hoods. That’s my Also

    Sorry! couldn't limit it to just one of each Small - Zeroturn, don't care what brand, to get into all them tight spots when mowing. Working on getting one. Small - Not fair perhaps, but C165 Auto, de-modernized, 38" tiller and 42" RD deck to get into the tight spots as well. In the stable. Perfect for cleaning up in the blackberry scrub in between the trees. Small - Any round hood. Do not want one though, as it would only be a show peace to me, and that don't compute in my head. Medium - C195, 84 model, 3pt, rear pto, 50" tiller, 60" HD deck. In the stable. Medium - C195, 84 model, TLB. Tractor and most parts have landed. Work in progress. Larger - JD compact 3R series, or a little older equivalent. TLB and a 72" deck. Just a wet dream so far.......

    When I saw title "excess cash" , my first thought don't any . I saw the launch and the two rockets landing at the same side by side and I said was HOLY COW. Mr. Musk sure knows how to get things done. Any member know anyone who maybe know a friend of a friend of a friend of his family ? It would be nice to see new limited production at a price us cheap guys could afford.

    Small - Lawn Ranger L-107. more than enough grunt to do chores and easy to get on and off for us older guys.... Medium - Charger/ Electro 12 Got to love their ability to push snow 10 pinion limited slip and the Sundstrand Hydro with lift that works immediately in the cold. Large - C175 - 8 Plenty of smooth power bullet proof tranny to para phrase Ron Popeil "set it 2nd and forget it" uphill down hill thick grass what ever she soldiers on.

    Got my decals from Terry. They are beautiful. Can’t wait to get to that point. Also picked up some 5 lug trailer hubs and 8” x 5-3/4” 5lug wheels for the front. Going to convert it over. Wheels should be painted soon. Carbon fiber look decals Color wheels will be painted

    No Chains okay with snow but add some glare ice and I think you will find the chains and weights are the only answer..... especially if you have a pitched surface. My personal opinion is that with global warming we have more ice then ever rather then cold fluffy snow....

    I really like my 854, fun little tractor. Just like it are my Commando's. They'll do whatever you ask of them. And they manuver like a champ. Great in tight spots.

    Amen to store, store, store........even prior to moving. Can always discard later with forum member's cooperation. Let go what isn't relevant, really important, or to which you have no long term emotional attachment. Liquidate what you must, then squirrel the rest away at your comrade's abodes. Then take with you what will suffice...........wherever you go, when you move.

    What to do with excess cash. What the heck is that? Sad part is he can get tax wright-offs for the entire venture, if any of us want to have fun we need to pay taxes on every dollar we spend. Thanks for posting this.

    I own the 520LXI which has the liquid cooled Kawaski motor and I run a 60" deck on it. I will never go back to mowing with the older style horses as the XI is just a different machine. I also have a 522xi with loader. That has a 22 hp air cooled Kohler twin. It has under 500 hours and runs like a top. You cannot go wrong with it. The downside of the 60" deck is that it is very heavy to take off and move around. I would not hesitate to buy it but make sure you do the usual testing of the hydro once it is nice and hot and drive up hills. The hydro has a high and low speed so try both. Check over the engine for smoke as cold start etc. Good luck and keep us informed on what you plan on doing. Pic below are of my 522xi with loader.

    They were saying that that rocket had a better chance of blowing up on the pad than lifting off. Imagine what they could do when they are confident of something. Acouple of launches back they had a camera on a booster as it returned to earth. They landed it on a floating barge in the ocean. Pretty amazing getting it to stay upright on something floating like that. Even more amazing watching it thru the camera. I see you have your work boots on and not your sandals. Safety First!

    Still fighting with one of the hubs on Ray's tractor, this thing has been getting soaked in PB Blaster (maybe not the best but I can get all of it I want free from work ), its been heated, and I've got about all the tension I can put on it with the puller without breaking anything. And it still refuses to budge. An old mechanic friend once told me every job has 7 curse words, trick is you gotta get them in the right order and things will fall together, I've cursed this thing with about every combination of words I can come up with and it still isn't coming offIf anyone here has any tips, tricks, or suggestions I'm open to hearing them. Oh and my new shop helper Khaleesi wanted to say hi to everyone here on RedSquare

    Still in the Beta stage on the chains or no chains. First test went well. 8 inches of the light stuff. Need to give it a go with about 6 inches of wet crap. Hope the fat chic can do it with no chains.👍👍👍👍

    I used my three 520H for mowing and snow blowing duties for the last 8 years. I loved them all. Then I got a 520xi and fell in love with it. So much so that I picked up a 522xi. That 522xi is the finest tractor I've ever used. Don't get me wrong, I love the 520H, but the 5xi's are one step above. Power steering is to die for, but I hate the smart steering. All that said, I worry about the Kohler V-Twins. I had to replace one because of oil burning at 800 hrs. But my other V-Twin has 900 hrs on it and is running just fine. I would go for another 5xi in a heart beat.

    Put my oldest son to work today cleaning with a tooth brush. 👍 Waiting on some chemicals and cleaners i ordered online so i can clean up all the parts in a make shift parts washer. At this point, i think kit #4 and a new shift fork should do it. I was wondering that myself being there was no paint on them
