Hey there tractor folks. Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks for the great site. Tinkering with the yard toys has been with me ever since dad had me at his side in the garage since I was a pup. Now, I need the readers to see most everything I work on. And dad wants me to add a carryall to the cc for his oxygen tank so he can still play. Looking forward to chatting with some of you, since I picked up 2 more cc's this summer and I'm not too keen on some of the fancy parts. Hydro-something or other? What the!

Welcome, Cubx3. Glad you found us.

Nice payback to your dad for helping him continue his yard work as he gets older. Sounds like he was a great guy, letting you work with him in the garage when you were younger. When you get the carrier finished, be sure to post some photos.

Yeah the times they are a changing. My dad went and looked at a new snapper the other day and he said it had a computer system on it like a car. Wtf!?! I guess now we are going to have to take our mower in and get raped at the dealer every time it has a hiccup or needs serviced. Remember this is hearsay but if it's true it really ticks me off.

Oh, that's just great! What's next, idiot lights that say "Change Oil", "Sharpen Blade", or "Maintenance Required - Return to Dealer - Bring Vaseline"?? :)

Having that on a large AG tractor would be one thing. But the day my lawnmower starts to talk to me is the day I disconnect it's speaker. :D

Welcome Cubx3!

I'm new here too :)...

I'm not suggesting you embrace the change, but what can we do?

What I have done is to get the best and most accurate maintenance manual for a specific model instead of forking over the big (labor) bucks to the dealer.
