    New 1512 owner, questions?

    After my 1450 died I decided I needed a new tractor. I new it had to be a diesel, so after a lot of hunting I found a 700 hundred hour 1512. It came with a 50a deck, sleeve hitch, #2 tiller, and 54" blade w/hydro angle. I paid $2K for it all. Tractor runs great and the hydro is so smooth...
