    Tool box add-on MX5400 and intro

    That’s exactly how I was able to buy the tractor. I was actually looking for a mx5400, but the 6000 was available and I took it.

    Sometimes you get lucky

    I got the call earlier this week. My tractor will be delivered next Wednesday. Unfortunately the 7’ offset rear blade is back ordered 6 months. So it looks like I’ll have to plow snow this winter with my old under-sized 5 foot blade.

    No doubt that those patches were either bare ground or sparse grass.

    Social Media?

    Social media is really any form of public communication site, so yes this is social media. But of course every site has a different emphasis and people posting comments.

    Goldenrod Control

    Mullien is an early pioneer species and likes disturbed soil. Over time perennial grasses will out-compete mullien and it will fade away, but in my experience this takes about 10 years. Mullien especially likes to establish in burned areas such as wildfires or where brush piles were burned.

    Radiator indicator light is on but radiator is full; what is going on?

    Is your radiator screen clean or clogged with debris? A full cooling system will overheat if the screen is plugged with grass chaff and other debris.

    This should be interesting next growing season. Six foot Landpride cutter

    I just bought a Landpride rcr2072 cutter. But it will be used behind my new mx6000. A six footer seems a bit large for your tractor.

    Goldenrod Control

    USFWS and most biologists aren’t the best sources for vegetation management recommendations. Contact your local state land grant university cooperative extension service or the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service.

    Analysis Paralysis L2501/LX2610SU…….B2601

    I have had a gear tractor for 20 years and can use it for any task. But my new tractor I take delivery of next week is HST. It is just so much more enjoyable and productive to operate a HST over a gear tractor.

    Analysis Paralysis L2501/LX2610SU…….B2601

    A wider, heavier tractor is going to be much smoother to ride on rough ground. Also, the BX isn’t a great tractor for woods work. The clearance isn’t very good and the HST fan is vulnerable to damage.

    Analysis Paralysis L2501/LX2610SU…….B2601

    I have learned that a belly mower isn’t a great option for anything other than lawn grass. I have used it for field mowing grass and it just throws chaff into the radiator screen, resulting in the need for frequent cleaning stops or overheating.
