    Once you go "GREEN" you won't go back

    Finally got my first Deere. I've always wanted one but had to settle for a "little" one.

    Our lot is only 1/2 acre but this sure makes it quick and easy to mow.

    Congrats on the new "Green Machine". There are other that will be green with envy. It is not quite time for me to get one, but it will be coming soon.

    Randy,

    Congrats on the green.

    I hope Denise doesn't see this post. She's been trying to talk me into one of those...albeit larger...to handle 5-10 acres...for a while now.

    I'm sure you're gonna like your new toy!

    Congrats Randy.

    I've had my 345 for 13 years and 700 hours with nary a problem. Just replaced the battery last year. Regular oil changes [50 hours] and two trips to the dealer. One for 500 hour check and one other problem that turned out to be very minor. Mine mows, rototills the garden, blows snow in the winter and carries all kinds of stuff around in the trailer, so it gets used all year long.

    Marty, sounds like you could use something in the 4000 series with a blade, backhoe, mower etc. There are times I wish I had enough property to warrant one that big. Then there are other times I'm glad I only have an acre.

    Living in Florida for 9 years I didnt ever have to worry about this, but I'm going to have to find something that blow's snow also. When we moved up here this year we had already missed all the heavy stuff so I got by without anything but the new season to rapidly approaching so I need to do something.

    Nice one. Its a little overkill for my yard, but it sure would be pretty in "Green".

    I love my 4110, but I think they call that size to something like a 2350 or something like that now.

    Congrats on the new Deere.

    I can't help but show pictures of our "Deere herd"....and a few others tossed in there to show we aren't color blind.

    You are right, once you are green, ain't no going back.
