Ramblin' JD TRS24

I just felt like showing off my "new to me" John Deere TRS24. I've done some things to improve its performance like ArmorSkids and a home brew impeller mod. I used today's minor snowfall as a shakedown run.

She performed as I'd hoped and within expectations. It's not a world-beater, but it'll get the job done.

It's a low serial number version of its type, so it's a dual-shaft motor which will be hard to replace if the old Tecumseh fails. Unless someone here knows of a drop-in replacement.

Anyway, just had a fun time clearing the driveway and felt like sharing. Lots more fun than using my old Powerlite.

Yes I did. It came with turf-style tires and it was cheaper to throw chains on it than go through the trouble of swapping out the tires.

I also have a fairly steep incline on part of my driveway.

Nice machine! Hopefully you get to test it on something a little more substantial (I'm sure you will)!

I just measured the center to center distance between the bolts for the skids, then used that to pick the right ArmorSkid.

The TRS24 has a 2" bolt pattern for the skids. So that meant I needed p/n ASC2475-A.
