No but make sure to keep that offset so it can trim up next to stuff.
I have had good luck with aftermarket betts rather then the JD belts. The primary belt on my 322 has been on for three years at 1/3rd the cost of Deere belt. I just get the part # and search for it .Good luck at the Deere house. Deere belts often work best, but the price may not. The cheaper blue Kevlar belts at TSC work well, and you may find you can get 3-4 of them for the price of a “correct” Deere belt if one is available. Just sayin...adapt & prevail.
Most are the first 2 at the same time, an overly compicated and expensive hobby revolving around mowing the lawn. LolHey tmac,
I've went through and read some of your past post on various threads and I've got a sneeky suspicion you're a pretty smart guy. I would like to have you on my "go to" list for questions if that's okay. I don't know how many here are actual enthusiasts, just weekend mowers or a few farming operators like me. Any way, I see you have some knowledge and some "know how" to share and would appreciate your input.
Definitely like the other colors, in our case Deere GT’s and the new machines being Deere is how it worked out, the tractor was almost the better new orange (Kioti) but Deere prevailed. Old stuff started with the 185 and grew to a numerous Gear drives, a couple other 185’s, and the 345 and 317.317,
I get that. I'm seeing some different paths for creative farming. Gearing things more toward the homesteading/ off-grid side. Yesterday for example, I thought I had a big enough issue my 1965 Farmall 140, that the cost of converting to an EV would be offset enough to make "cents." Oh, I'm not a racist BTW. I love Green, I love Red, I love Orange and I've even been seen riding some Brown and Yellow too!
It’s also saying a little less when it’s mainly in India and Asia (and I’ve not heard a lot of good stuff about them). Kioti I believe makes the Bobcat tractors.I must be living under a rock because I have never heard of Kioti tractors? The dealer up the road from me started selling Mahindra when they lost their JD dealership, I had never heard of Mahindra at that point, when I looked it up it say's they are the best-selling tractor in the world. That Is quite the statement! Tom
