I really enjoyed talking to him and his Dad. Currently he has a Wheel Horse of some sort and a smaller Cub Cadet, but he has had issues with the hydraulics on the WH. He’s not looking for a deck as he already has a zero turn for the mowing side of the business.
I was up front and honest with him about what I know about the history of the machine. He seemed mechanically inclined so I’m sure that if something comes up he will be able to work it out.
