New guy with a 185 lowboy

Postby jhegel » Thu Oct 11, 2018 2:44 pm

Hi all, I just purchased a 185 lowboy. Just got it a couple of days ago and am going thru the site to get a handle on what I have and what to expect from this machine.

I have a 10 acre home site, and am hoping this will help with my undeveloped 8 acres that need attention.

Located in the Mission Valley in Montana where we get our fair share of snow.

Welcome to the Forum. Take a look at the pdf manuals at the Quick links tab, top left corner of this page. Lots of good useful information at the HOW TO subform also. BIG SKY country is a beautiful place, hope to visit again someday.
