Thank T-MO.  Darn thing is upright on my phone.  

 

Drove it on the trailer.  First time I rode that sucker in at least a decade.

I sold this nice 520 HC to a fellow member's son (soon to be a member) today. 520 HC with 60" deck. Great meeting the "Ray's" today. Good luck with it!

Great thread idea Steve and happy we were able to contribute to it!  Also thanks much for the hospitality and for the tour of your amazing shop.  I'm looking forward to shaving time off my mowing time so I can free up time for my true love....John Deere collecting! ;)

Another one down the road. I picked this one up last week and had buyer's remorse. Not because of the machine just the fact I have too many. This one sold at a push which I am fine with. Just wanted to see it go to a better home.

Is that a Honda.....pickup ? Those are about as unexpected as Alfa Romeo building an SUV....lol . I see they did upgrade the chassis - but I'd be nervous loading an iron GT in the back..

I know most owners would never treat them like a true pickup truck and starting hauling some serious weight on a regular basis , but I'd really wonder how well that unibody chassis would hold up over time , not to mention the lightweight drive line . Same with some models of the new Jeeps - primarily front wheel drive with rear wheel assist and no true frame....scares me . I suppose the Honda is more along the lines of an updated El Camino vehicle and should be treated as such , although those old Chevy/Fords were quite tough for what they were at the time . Everything is moving toward the popular SUV market but the way they are designing them is all about fuel mileage and cup holders - they are quickly losing the Utility part of their heritage and just becoming taller cars or minivans on steroids . Worst part is how they are driven by most of their owners - pushing them like a sports car without considering what they weigh - seeing a lot of rear-end accidents lately and looking around all of them have a ton of brake dust on their wheels from hard use on the brakes . Guess I never understood that market - there isn't very much room in most of them in comparison to their outside dimensions but I know their owners prefer how they sit higher and offer a better view of the surroundings - I get that part . Have had to work on a few for friends and relatives - their components don't impress me one bit , especially the suspension components and drive line . SIL's last little Equinox had a rear drive shaft failure - that one was over $900 in parts alone for stuff that belonged in something much lighter . Don't even get me started on the unit type wheel bearings...ugh .
