Batting 100% in the last three tractors I acquired. Seem like the majority of people any more will buy a GT or Lawn mower and let them sit outside 24/7 and do nothing to try to protect them. Kind of burns be that some people will spend good money on a good tractor just to let it go to pot by not taking care of it. What's worse is they post photos of 3 or 4 tractors buried in the snow and think it's cool. I probably stepped on some toes here but this is my opinion and I will stick to it. If you can't afford to cover and protect it, don't buy it.
