I get different stories from 2 JD dealer salesmen about
capabilities of this unit. With the rough cut mower rated for 2"
stuff, what sort of heavy brush can I cut? Can I cut it to ground
level or can I turn the blades around so I shatter stuff instead of
make spikes? Also I need to use if for snow removal. One
dealer strongly advises a block heater. Also does anyone have
experience with the 7 foot x 22" power angle snow plow blade
which goes on the front on the loader frame? Sounds great to
me because I could use the plow but switch to the loader when I
have to make more room for plowing, but it is an awfully long
way out in front of the tractor. I believe I can cut the ROPS and
fix things so I can reattach the pieces when I want to. I'd like
shuttleshift but the 5105 is too much more money for me.
Also of course is the basic 990 a good troublefree unit which will
have the traditional Deere high resale value or is it something to
