    Holy Schmoley! A grand for tire chains? That's some ding-dang-ol clunk-clunk clunkety-clunk chains on the highway robbery.

    I used to dog sit for second home owners with an awful driveway. I don't know the slope % or degrees, but if I stopped halfway up in my Tacoma I could not get going again in 2WD no matter how lightly I feathered the gas. It was pretty well packed gravel.

    One of the owners told me she rolled her Wrangler on it one winter because there was ice on the slope and she kept sliding faster and faster until she hit the first corner, then it was all over.

    They had two 330 gal oil tanks because when the house was built they determined they may have significant periods of time in the winter where an oil truck wouldn't be able to get up the driveway.

    This has me thinking a bit. With all the wealth of knowledge from all the members on this thread, what do you all think about getting a list of businesses and supplies that most of us would use for parts/lube/tires & chains/ etc? @Steve Urquell @six5crèéd @koditten @RustyGreen @T-yoda

    It'd be cool. I wonder if it can be added to the thread as a pinned sub-thread/sub-heading?

    We could link it in the OP first post or just add links to first post?

    Took the plunge and grabbed a tach/maintanance minder.

    Seems pretty accurate. Shows 1050@idle and 3200ish at max rpm.

    I like how it counts down the hours until the next oil change. I set it to 25 hours.i just stuck it to the control panel with adhesive backed Velcro.

    Chains are not cheap. I know, as I have the aggressive euro-chains. But.... think how much money we have invested in the tractor, plus all the attachments and implements. If the tractor can't move, it's all for naught!

    Great idea, we can add it to the first post no problem :thumbsup:

    Once we get several I can add them or Chris can either one, doesn’t matter to me.

    I get a lot of mower/small engine parts here. https://www.partstree.com/

    If nothing else I look up what I need and call the local mower place and see if they have it in stock and how much, if it’s close with shipping cost I just go grab it.
