Neither I wish ,it will be a zero turn brand new from Kyle 2
Thought about thinning herd and getting some new blood in it
but that’s another story for another time
With cutting my lawn and two older neighbors it’s time to upgrade
looking forward to it. If it lasts me as long as the GT235 did I should not have to buy another other than herd members
The 314 needs an engine over haul the noise in there is getting concerning
It will then be snow removal or back up. Thought about building a cab for it too.

Amongst the other guesses about something red I thought maybe you'd unearthed a JD 110 prototype. Boy, that would be a find. You'll have to post us some photos of the zero turn when you get it. I see you've been getting some seat time blowing snow. How have the blower modifications worked out for you? You put a lot of good thought and great work into it. (y)

Visited the new toy yesterday and should be enjoying it next week. Since I have to work this weekend had to push it off another week.
Rode it around a little .So smooth and easy to operate. Will definitely make mowing time better.
Many thanks to Kyle 2 and the shop for setting it up and getting it ready. Yes I know where are the pics. Next week when it arrives home. Very tempted to drive it home.

No it will be a Big Dog by Excel who also makes Hustler units. Made in a far away land called U.S.A. !!!!!!
54 inch welded deck. A little bigger then I need for my yard alone but for doing all three it'll be great. Trying to pick up the other neighbors yard also to put some $$$ back into the emptied out account.
New ones have Briggs Engines as the Kawasaki are impossible to get.
Ordering a grass catcher other than that this is what I am getting

Yup I am aware thank you. We had a JD 757 at school actually bought a second.
It used to take us all week with a JD 4200 compact and a 72 inch deck to do our sports fields.
With the zero and 60 inch deck we did the whole district in 2 days. No doubt about the effort and time they save. The deck was never put back on the compact. Nice thing about the compact was the cab to keep sun off of you though.
Will be the first new mower I have ever owned.

That's a really nice looking unit. I'm sure you'll enjoy it and save a lot of time mowing indeed. Nice too that it's made in good 'ol U.S.A !!! 🇺🇸 :).(y)

Knew that was coming…..🤣

Well it showed up today . Thanks to Kyle2 and the guys at Pikeville Equipment . First one sold and out the door this Spring for them.Looking forward to seat time with this one, I’m sure it’ll take a few cuttings to get a rhythm . Had the 235 almost 20 years.
Grass catcher is being ordered to lazy to take .🤪
