Sorry, haven't been on the forum in a while. I did get my GT5000 and it's a very nice machine. I was supprised that it was already assembled and they even put some gas fumes in the tank. The guy drove it around to the back of my house and into the new barn for me. I had never driven a tractor before so I was a little hesitant to drive it myself. After he left I got on it and started it and it didn't run for more than a minute before it ran out of gas.
After going out for more fuel I drove the tractor around the yard to get used to it. I got a hitch for it but haven't installed it yet, are they much of a problem to install? I thought it would be just a matter of bolting it on the back, but it looks more involved than that. Any suggestions on the type of hour meter to install? Don't want to drive it too much until I get one installed. Haven't cut any grass with it, probably won't until spring. By then I should have the hitch attached and have bought a box scrapper for it.
I was running it in my barn the day after delivery and the man next door came over when he heard the engine running. He thought I had got myself a Harley, what a complement
See you guys!
