Hoping others can empathize with my current situation. Still have 48 hours to go until my new tractor and several attachments arrives. Feel like a little kid waiting to go to Disneyland for the first time. Why does the clock seem to tick so slow when you are waiting for something? I am trying to keep busy to help the time pass but all I keep seeing around our property is stuff I want to do with the tractor.

We've all been there and I promise you, it's worth the wait. Congrats and enjoy it!

Ordered mine last June, got it in October. I hope your wait is less.
Quick funny story:
Salesman knew I was waiting, I pecked at him. So it arrived and he simply emailed me Friday afternoon and said "It's here!!"
So I showed up 7am Saturday morning with my trailer. They all looked at each other and said "uuhhh, yea, no, it's still in s shipping crate, we need to assemble parts, prep it etc etc, it won't be ready until Tuesday"
Man, talk about a dejected child, :ROFLMAO: , drove back home with my empty trailer. :confused:

I got lucky and they ended up having two of the model I wanted that they had just received (same as yours they were still crated and needed to be assembled). They sold one of them while I was talking with the salesmen and test driving another model. I knew I wanted it so I immediately gave them a deposit. They also had most of the attachments I wanted but will have to wait for a couple of them. It works out though they had the ones available that I wanted the most right now. I got to visit it the other day, its all assembled and ready to go. Now I just wait :)

Need to occupy some time? Maybe read/download the owners manual?

Mine has been on order since the beginning of January. Hopefully soon? They were orginally estimating end of March/April so we are getting close.

Haha thanks! I sold my BX so I would have the cash for the new one. I only use it in the winter for snow removal of big piles in case we get more. I survived the winter but now that it is spring the projects are going to start haha.

Today is delivery day. Just a few more hours to go. Haven't anticipated something this much since I was a kid at Christmas time.

Congrats on the new toy! Just got my LX2610 delivered to its new home on Wednesday. It definitely brought out the inner child in me.

My B is now showing "allocated" so hopefully this month. My dealer has a ton of inventory sold that they don't have. Every tractor on the floor was spoken for (no B's they have been out since January)

I feel you there. Signed papers on a LX2610HSDC yesterday after making sure my wife could reach the controls (and the delayed closing on my new property). The dealer has to source a couple items from their other locations for my package, then install a third function and swap to R-14’s for me. At least a week till it’s ready and then I’ll likely have to wait another two for me to return from work on the tugboat. The anticipation is palpable!

It’s not the size that matters, it’s what you can do with what you got. 😂 I may have a slightly bigger tractor, but I feel very inadequate at operating it.
